This land is holy ground
as our feet walk on the earth
the soul of our feet
meeting the soul of the earth
We become intertwined
our lightness and depth connects with sky
our depth and lightness connects with ground
where is your place of Holy Ground?
which route would you take?
how will you travel there?
what will you take with you
to connect with this experience?
We invite you to make a journey
to your place of Holy ground
listen in and to listen within to what speaks to you
This is a Call for fellow pilgrims
Pilgrims to "redraw topography as a sacred field, rendering the whole landscape as a sacred field of power" Alison Millbank
Every step we make is a scared step upon the earth – whether in urban or rural locations. We are looking to connect with beings who are interested in pilgrimage or have experience of being on pilgrimage.
We would like to create a community of pilgrims involved in multiple acts of sacred movement and quests over the landscape – to create a sacred field between now and 2021. This community will exist as different shapes and layers of holding and interrelating. All participation will develop into an online community with the invitation to also become part of a collective performance in Spring/Summer 2021.
How to be involved
Holy Ground Seeding Practices
Listen to the sound piece on this page with the beginning text - and feel into a place that you would like to go - and what you will take with you
If this is a place you have journeyed to before allow there to be something different in the way that you travel there
Carry with you the intention of the notion of Holy Ground and the awareness of the community from the Temple and the Church who are part of the group in London
Journey into the landscape or route of your choice
Find a way to document the journey however if feels right
By email send us the reflections of your process this can be in writing, sound, painting, image, photography
Mark the journey on a map and send us a photograph – or representation of the route that you took
These processes will develop a series of sacred journeys over the land becoming energy lines and root makers to produce the sacred field across the landscape. Contributions will be uploaded to our website as a holding place - please be in touch if you have any questions.
For longer forms of participation
