Avebury had a peacefulness and sense of nature (see the sheep?) about it, with a good number of people walking amidst the stones, touching them, soaking up the energy of the ancient builders of the site. I feel a sense of spirituality I have not felt since I last visited Chartres Cathedral in France, and thus it is now on my list of places I need to visit again.
Having spent several hours in Glastonbury, on to what became one of the highlights of my September trip to the UK – Avebury. A world heritage site of what I believe to be the finest example of megalithic monuments, Avebury has left a lasting impression on me. Before I went on the tour, I confess I had never heard of this site. What makes it such a rich experience is that I felt the energy in the stones, and even experienced dowsing (see the second picture) with the energy in the stones causing the copper rods to turn and then turn back. This I would not have believed had I not experienced it. My visit to Stonehenge was wonderful, but Avebury was . . . powerful.
