Flight of the Seer IX…

*

Shortly after the ‘Leaf and Flame’ event in 2016, the outline for, The Feathered Seer, workshop took shape for us on the edge of an ancient necropolis overlooking Big Moor.

The seeing that day, be it courtesy of the seasonal sun light, or more esoteric manifestations, allowed us to work out one possible function of the Barbrook 1 stone circle.

And this ‘rudimentary ritual’ was replayed in original situ later that year for the group of Companions who attended our Living Land workshop, ‘Circles Beyond Time’, in September.

Naturally, it also formed the basis of R3 of The Feathered Seer and its working proved to be one of the most intense undertakings we have ever experienced.

What the ancients knew was that only the querent holds the answer to the question, but that the clues to those questions are everywhere played out in living experience.

The symbolism employed by our forebears was both simple and profound.

Rock sculptures designating ‘living lands’, stand and face the horizon.

Rock sculptures designating ‘dead lands’, lie and face the sky.

The earthen monuments of the dead are linked by sky paths.

Wisdom is found within and only then utilised to shape those without, not vice versa.

Our modern cultures, it seems, still have an awful lot to learn.

    1. Probably not possible to say definitively without extensive field work, however, most traditional cultures appear to be run along broadly similar lines and we know the megalith builders at one time covered the globe (there are passage tombs inside the foundations of some of the pyramids) so it is worth bearing in mind as a possibility…

          1. What do you make of the face on the dolmen? I think it rather looks like the sphinx in profile. Another place to add to the list! Will be returning to America’s Stonehenge at some point in the near future as well…that’s only about an hour from me.
