Ancient Sacred Sites in South West England


with Kathleen Moore

Calendar Oct 25, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

For those interested in exploring prehistoric monuments and sites such as Stonehenge, South West England has much to offer in a relatively compact and accessible area. Many of the sites can be grouped into “systems” that are interrelated, such as the Avebury Stone Circle and the Glastonbury complexes. The sites are tied together by the Michael/Mary earth energy line that runs across the South West. There will be an overview of the Michael/Mary line followed by a review of the Avebury and Glastonbury sites. You will understand the nature of the sites and how to get there by the end of the class.

Presenter Information: Kathleen Moore worked at Kennebec Valley Community College for over 20 years where she directed Student Services and taught Sociology and Psychology. She was also a Research Associate at UMO for several years. Ms. Moore has traveled to South West England to explore the wonderful sites for many years.
