Geomancy explores the realm where human consciousness meets and dialogues with the Spirit of the Earth. It empowers the harmonious interaction between person and place, and can enhance spiritual growth.
While Geomancy honours the spirit of place, it also honours its intersection with the Spirit of Time. We honour all spiritual paths with heart, and so, we would begin by recognising that different paths see different days as special. On these islands, the builders of Stonehenge honoured the Summer Solstice, at Newgrange, they honoured the Winter Solstice, but all spiritual paths and world religions hold different days as special.

I have been most fortunate to be in a Geomancy Group here Britain and we have been working together for over ten years now. We meet as a small group several times a year, usually next to one of the many wonderful sacred sites and areas of these Isles. This Spring, we met at Avebury and had several wonderful days there. We started in the middle of the henge and went out to the distant boundaries that mark the edges, or gates, to the Sacred Space that is Avebury. This issue of MAG is more visual than text because Jon Appleton showed us an interesting aspect of the West Kennett Avenue that I had not been aware of and it is best comprehended visually.

The Eastern horizon of Avebury is formed by the Ridgeway. It is quite level, and has a number of clumps of trees the grow over a Bronze Age round barrow. Here's the first example:
