What impulse in the human spirit has, for millennia, caused us to paint cave walls, pile stones, carve, build, engineer, plan, craft and construct monuments to the invisible and unknown?
Why are some places set apart and worthy of our greatest efforts and accomplishment? What makes one site sacred and another a garbage heap? Every culture on the planet has a tradition of sacred spaces and spiritual places and when we encounter them we resonate in harmony with the energies we find there.
This intriguing lecture will include sites in Bali, England, France, Eastern Europe, Hawaii, America, Egypt, the Sinai and the Holy Land. Topics will include geomancy and earth energies, sacred architecture and geometry, solar and stellar alignments, psychology, spirituality, religion, the alchemy of travel, quantum mechanics and some fascinating new discoveries about the science and psychology of Sacred Places.
Please join Greg Roach, founder of Spirit Quest Tours, for an entertaining and compelling tour with beautiful pictures and fascinating details.
Greg has taught and lectured all over the world at numerous prestigious institutions, including Cambridge University (England), San Francisco State, USC, and the University of Sofia. He speaks regularly on spirituality, comparative religion, sacred sites and the potential of digital technology as an artistic and storytelling tool.
