The Feathered Seer. Weekend Workshop April 2017

The Silent Eye Annual Workshop 2017

“In a time before memory…when the land was yet young and Albion unborn, I dreamed the stars of a time yet to be. I dreamed your becoming.
…I see you.
I called and you have come.
The time is now.”

Join us as we journey back beyond recorded history to a time known only in dreams and a place that still casts its shadow in stone upon our landscape. It is a time of peace and bright learning, a time when wisdom flourishes in the sacred colleges and a young Seer is nearing the end of her training. They came with sword and spear, raveners of the land, seeking to pervert and destroy the Keepers of Wisdom. Torches in the night… a world forever changed…

Dates: Weekend of 21-23 April 2017

Location:  Great Hucklow, Derbyshire Dales.England.

Don’t miss it!

Accommodation is provided full board at the Nightingale Centre with inclusive prices for the weekend from £245 – £265 per person.Click here to download a pdf Booking Form for The Feathered Seer

The Prisoner of Portmeirion?

(A Spycological Thriller)

The Silent Eye Summer Weekend Workshop, June 2017

“I am not a number…”

prisoner-portmeirion-logoaa

“… I am a free man…” But are we?  Join us for a most unusual weekend.

Once more the Silent Eye boldly goes…

One of the top TV shows of the 1960s was “The Prisoner” starring Patrick McGoohan as Number 6, the man from the secret service who dared to resign… and found himself kidnapped and captive in the mysterious “Village” where the banality of life was designed to crush the mind of the potential security threat.

Or perhaps it was really about something entirely different…

Set in and around the very real village of Portmeirion, the place where the Prisoner was filmed,  with the backdrop of wonderful Snowdonia on our doorstep, our pre-solstice adventure in the landscape will take the form of a psychological (or spycological) exploration of what it means to ‘fit in’ with the world–and the price of not doing so. We do not intend this to be deadly serious, but many a powerful revelation can come from a well-timed poke of humour, as Shakespeare well knew!

Dates: Weekend of 16-18 June 2017

Location:  Close to Portmeirion Village.

Don’t miss it! Demand will be high and there are limited places. Send us an email to register your interest.

Solstice of the Moon

Inverurie, Scotland
15th-17th September 2017

2The gently undulating and fertile landscape between the foothills of the Grampian Mountains and the North Sea proved an attractive place to settle for the early Neolithic peoples colonising the furthest reaches of the British Isles. Nowhere else contains a greater concentration of late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age remains; from the earliest recorded flint mines, through numerous burial mounds and cairns, to the highest density of stone circles in the country.

Yet, there is a mystery. Unique to the area, with the exception of a few examples in the South West of Ireland, the circles of the region are exclusively of the “recumbent” type; a form largely intended for monitoring the “solstices” of the moon, more 3-copycommonly referred to as the lunar standstill, with specific interest in the major lunar standstill which occurs in an 18.5 year cycle.

Join us in the heartland of the Picts, for a weekend of discovery and exploration of the enigmatic astronomical sites created by their Neolithic forefathers, and the equally enigmatic rock art they themselves left behind.

4-copyThe weekend will consist of three days exploration of local sites in and around the market town of Inverurie, in the beautiful Don valley, Aberdeenshire.

The weekend is informal, no previous knowledge or experience is required. We ask only that you bring your own presence and thoughts to the moment.

Workshop costs £50 per person. Accomodation and meals are not included and bed and breakfast/hotel in Inverurie should be booked separately by all attendees. Lunch and dinner are usually shared meals.
