The main attunement on Wednesday, May 30 will be inside the stones at Stonehenge. Bus transportation will be provided from Glastonbury to Stonehenge.
We will have the stones all to ourselves for over an hour and be able to meditate with them prior to and after the attunement. Stonehenge was built at this location because of the powerful ley lines that meet here and the uplifting healing energies that converge both from below and from above.
Stonehenge was built over a period of about 1500 years in a number of stages, the oldest of which was about 5000 years ago. It started with circular earthwork. Then over time, additional features were added with each stage becoming more impressive. The large sarsen stones, the main feature of Stonehenge were part of the final phase and were put in place about 2400BC. The design, construction and refinements of Stonehenge cannot be found anywhere else among the prehistoric stone circles of Europe. The size of the stones, some weighing up to 45 tons and the distance they were moved, over 30km, make Stonehenge one of the most astonishing of all achievements of the prehistoric people of Europe. Stonehenge was used by prehistoric people for a period of 2000 years.
Sensitives who have tuned into the people who used Stonehenge find that it was a joyous place, used to celebrate rights of passage such as weddings and child birth as well as death. Harvests were celebrated there and it was a place where people went to pray and to receive initiation into the priesthood. An oblong carving of the mother-goddess is on the inside face of the fourth trilithon of the horseshoe. Therefore, our use to initiate you as an Usui/Tibetan Reiki master or a Karuna Reiki® master, aligns with the purpose Stonehenge was created. May the energy, wisdom and love of the ancient ones who created Stonehenge empower your initiation as a healer and your mission to help others.
Class is held in Glastonbury
The main attunement will be at Stonehenge which will take place on Wednesday evening just before sunset. However, the main part of the workshop will be in Glastonbury. The Glastonbury area is as interesting or even more so than Stonehenge. It's is filled with sacred sites that contain wonderful spiritual energies. It is said to be one of the earth's most important power spots and is felt to be the heart chakra of the earth. This power spot is located at The Tor, a hill with a tower at the top and a spiral maze going around the side, said to be connected with the Great Goddess and created about 2000-3000 BC. The Chalice Hill and Chalice Well with the Red and White springs are said to impart healing energies. The Abbey where King Arthur and Gwenhwyfar are said to have been buried.
There are many other sacred sites and stories about the area. I recommend you read Glastonbury, Ancient Isle of Avalon so you'll be familar with the area and be able to make plans to visit the sacred sites. Also, it's important to schedule your trip so you arrive a few days early or stay a few days after the workshop so you will have time to explore and enjoy. (The workshop is all day long and you will have very little time to explore on the days of the workshop.) It's possible for you to book extra time before and after the workshop at one of the local B&Bs. See additional accommodations.
Group Hike on Friday, June 1
I'll be leading a group hike to the sacred sites around Glastonbury on Friday morning after class, so be sure to schedule time for this.
Needless to say, because of the location, and the time of year, (just before Summer Solstice) this will be a very powerful workshop.

Wow, I came to realize on arrival at the weekend that this course was ensuring that I am reminded of my true purpose. I was humbled and in awe at the people I met—from all walks of life and every corner of the earth (so it seemed). . . . William, for me Stonehenge was a moment that will live on in my heart forever. . . . The joy was so pure that I couldn’t control the emotion. Thank you for taking us there. . . . Your pure heart helped us experience this magical presence of stillness and peace. It was incredible. Love, Lorraine
The Glastonbury Reiki Master training I received in June, 2007 was intensely deep and meaningful. I have been in full-time practice as a Reiki Master for several years. I came to the class with a number of questions and needs for healing in my own life and a desire to deepen my personal connection with Reiki. The class met me where I was and helped me just where I needed it! Being among the stones at Stonehenge was truly an amazing experience. I felt that time was altered, and I felt the power of that place in my very bones. The stones seem to be living beings, sentinels watching over humanity, providing gentle, eternal guidance for anyone who cares to listen respectfully to their ancient, wise voices. . . . William’s teaching style continues to deepen. I found him very accessible, gentle, and patient. His guided meditations brought fresh, personal insight, and his knowledge of the history and heritage of Reiki gives students a solid foundation for belief and practice. Russell Clay, New York City
This was my third Reiki Master attunement, and I felt that this one at Stonehenge was my first. I did not feel complete as a Usui Master until I took your class. . . . This was such an emotional, personal experience that is it difficult to relate. Peace, Mary Stewart
I, too, feel truly blessed to have experienced this process of becoming a Reiki Master with you and all of the wonderful people in the class. My experience in Glastonbury and Stonehenge was truly amazing and life changing. You could call it a transformation of sorts, the way a butterfly becomes free after developing in a cocoon. . . . I felt instantly filled with light upon entering Glastonbury. The energy there is indescribable. I felt a huge connection to everyone and everything. It has inspired me to experience all that the world has to offer. I have and would highly recommend this powerful experience to anyone interested in taking a journey of self-discovery. Take care. Penny Waggener
The Reiki Master Training I had at Glastonbury was a beautiful experience. I met some wonderful Reiki healers, and I have some memories that I will treasure for a lifetime. William, you are a wonderful spiritual guide and Reiki Master. Your meditations, I believe, develop a very deep spiritual awareness and connectiveness both with the spirit of Reiki and with each other within the group. . . . I could probably write a thousand words about the wonderful healing experience we have all had; the strongest memory is of love and light, sheer joy of sharing the experience with such beautiful healers and people, with the knowledge that our own spiritual energy is higher, and will continue to grow and develop. Namaste, Julie Bradford

Arrival/Departure dates: There are lots of power spots and sacred sites within walking distance of Glastonbury and since there will be no time to explore them on class days, I suggest that you arrive a couple of days before class and stay at least an extra day if you can so you have time to spend at the Tor, Chalice Well the Abby and so forth. Also, on the day after class, I'll be leading a group hike to many of these sacred sites. This will be a casual hike with lots of time to stop and smell the roses. Many students have said the hike is as meaningful an experience as going to Stonehenge. So make sure you book extra time.
