Cheryl and, Vanda invite you to join us for this unforgettable odyssey. This journey is a living book, where we experience miracles in the moment and co-create the highest experiences with divine energies. We will activate our highest potential through discovery, soul remembrance, meditations, group experiences, sharing, play, joy and sacred moments of contemplation.


You are about to embark upon a remarkable journey. The vision is about recovering the lost codes of the Templars, and Truth & Love Conquer All. Many of our learned concepts are illusions. The Quest is to understand the nature of truth within and without. The sword of truth cuts through the illusions that bind us to a limited reality and sets us free to fly to higher realms of wisdom.

Join us on a sacred pilgrimage as we re-examine ancient lost lore and know facts of the ancient Celtic wisdom school traditions, as well as explore the mysteries of Rosslyn Chapel including hidden treasures, the Templars and the Sinclair family. We will also visit profound megalithic sites older than the Great Pyramid of Egypt. We will touch into the rich folklore and fairy tales contained within ancient Scotland. We will also discuss the life of Prince Henry Sinclair, the young blond sea-going Scot who was born at Rosslyn Chapel, and his possible journey to America 90 years before Columbus.

To the Knights Templar a pilgrimage was called the Alchemist Pilgrimage or Pilgrimage of Initiation - An outward form of an inner mystical journey along the path of learning. The first nine Templars in Jerusalem spent ten years excavating under the Temple Mount and brought what they found to Rosslyn Chapel. There is evidence they found objects of esoteric traditions, sacred documents, maybe the Ark of the Covenant. It is time to re-examine our knowledge of the Templars and the gifts they have left us. Many feel that their spirit has returned now to fulfill their mission of truth, the restoration of Feminine principals and to reclaim through the opening of vaults, wisdom left as a legacy for humanity. No Truth, if understood and remembered, can ever be hidden again.

.." Rosslyn Chapel is an enigmatic arcane library of secrets, sculpted in stone and shrouded in mystery. It is a Chapel to mysticism and spirituality. Art without knowledge is nothing, and in this context the knowledge to which they refer is " gnosis, spiritual knowledge or mystical insight." Even the name Roslin translated into Gaelic hints at this 'Ancient knowledge handed down through the generations'. Rosslyn is a veritable three dimensional teaching board of Gnostic and medieval initiation. Rosslyn Chapel is a superbly carved reliquary for the Grail the allegorical description of the path to enlightenment, which was sacred to the Templars."
From: Rosslyn the Guardian of the secrets of the Holy Grail, Tim Wallace Murphy & Marilyn Hopkins.

The megalithic sites in Scotland are spectacular. It is remarkable that one thousand years before the earliest mathematician of classical Greece, people in the British Isles not only had a practical knowledge of geometry and were capable of setting out elaborate geometrical designs but also set out eclipses based on the Pythagorean triangles. We see megalithic sites oriented toward equinoxes as and solstices. They were placed near energy vortices that are conducive for the interconnection between terrestrial and cosmic influences, which offer gateways through which contact with spirits and higher awareness can be more easily achieved.

We will let inspiration and alchemy guide us as we experience magnificent places where otherworldly beings and nature meet in a dynamic communion. We will experience the energies of " As above so below" within the physical structures and standing stones within the landscape that were built by the ancient ones to capture the magic of celestial cycles that connect Earth and Sky. Our journey to Scotland will be a pilgrimage though time and space. We will experience the magic and mystery of own inner knowingness and feel the sacred landscape and myths come alive.
