Read more about the Odyssey below:


October 3-11, 2014

“What the heart has once owned, it shall never lose.”
Henry Ward Beecher

For the first time in centuries, the Scottish Highlands portal is opening and it beckons me to enter and reconnect to the infinite, powerful energy of time, space and soul memory that spiritually marks this mystical land.

I wholeheartedly accept this rare, sacred invitation and I invite you to join me as I journey through the magical Highlands and spiritual Islands of this most ancient, captivating land that gave birth to the fierce, unconquerable spirit of life and the people who still bear the stamp of it on their souls.

Join me as we experience the Highlands and Islands of auld that make the heart yearn for a time when souls were free and magic was a way of life; where portals opened and heaven and Earth met; where lives were transformed and hearts and souls were mended.

The portal is a sacred gateway to a deeper, more profound space. The Scottish Highlands and Islands are the heart of these sacred portals in the northern hemisphere. Through entering them, we can commune with, heal, forgive and reunite the fragmented parts of ourselves; we can become whole again.

The purpose of our Odyssey is to become liberated by consciously, actively giving ourselves compassion, permission, forgiveness and healing in this life and for all the life times our souls have traveled. And, as I write in my book, ‘The Spiritual Hedonist,’ “to discover and live from what Divine energy already knows-- that it is the highest good to unconditionally love ourselves and live a happy and satisfied life.”

Being a Spiritual Hedonist simply means that you’re honoring your Divine right and sacred responsibility by living in joy, acknowledging your value, coming from your heart and being of service and that is the highest and most profound form of spirituality that we can practice.

When your heart is focused on joy and happiness, you are closest to and in direct communication with the Divine. You effortlessly become a magnet for your good and you automatically attract the very best to yourself.

You and this sacred land are co-creators of the reawakening and reconnection of your heart, soul and spirit. Come along with me and let the experience of this Odyssey engage, delight and heal you.

The successful encounter with your own Divine path happens on many levels-- the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. Through music, stories and our own soul-deep experiences, the paths that connect the ancient realms and the world of today will open and transport us back to the essential truth of our soul’s journey throughout our many lifetimes.

The structure of our Odyssey ensures that our sacred journey will be a fulfilling one, revealing and reconnecting us to the wealth of our life’s power and purpose. Each day and experience will provide opportunities for a soul-evolving shift through meditations, nature walks, interactions in mystic places, ceremonies, creating personal talismans and daily numerological, astrological and Tarot readings as we reconnect ourselves to the sacred part of life with grace, glee, solemnity and wonder.

Like a treasure map or Tarot spread we will unveil the hidden knowledge of our life’s purpose by using the infinite power of Sacred Geometry, the energy of ley lines and our soul’s desire and intention to live in harmonious balance. By so doing, we will each explore, discover and release the karma of our past as we move onto a new, lighter pathway of self-expression, appreciation and joy.

Our Odyssey goes beyond the usual tourist track. With grace and elegance touching our souls and reigniting our true potential, we’ll travel the Highlands and Islands in chauffeur driven coaches, participate in soul-evolving ceremonies and have plenty of free time to relax, shop and just be.

We’ll begin our soul-evolving journey in Scotland’s venerable capital city, Edinburgh. We’ll make our way to the renowned Rosslyn Chapel, built by the Knights Templar to house the Holy Grail. There, we’ll hold the invocation ceremony of our Odyssey, conducted by Sacred Geometry Master, Dr. Jan Seward, thus activating the cycle of renewal and transformation that culminates on the Isle of Iona.

Next, we visit the Praying Hands of Mary Standing Stones, a natural stone formation that is a key point on the powerful, mysterious ley line map of Scotland.

We’ll journey to Skye, the ancient mist-veiled isle of deep lochs, beautiful peaks and rainbows, where we’ll spend time at the magical Fairy Pools and other ancient sites. Here, we can relax and reflect on our Odyssey and if you’re so inclined, you can revitalize yourself with a ‘wee dram’ as you tour the Talisker Distillery and visit the charming, craft-filled shops along the waterfront.

On our way to Skye, we’re reminded that in every grand adventure, there is a beautiful old castle. Ours possesses a rare and dream-like quality in a romantically mist filled setting. 13th century fortress, Eilean Donan, ancestral home to Clan MacRae, stands guard at the intersection of three lochs and our visit to this stunning stronghold will further awaken the memories of the majesty of our souls.

From Skye, we’ll travel to Oban by way of the breathtakingly beautiful scenic ‘road to the isles’ (where the Highlander and Harry Potter films were made). At Oban, we’ll cross the seas to the Isle of Iona. Described by the ancient Celts as the ‘thin place,’ the place where the veil between Heaven and Earth is lifted and where mortals might catch a glimpse of the Divine. Iona is where the major feminine/masculine ley lines meet under the constellations Scorpio and Libra, thus assuring us of a harmoniously balanced and profoundly healing experience of transformation and rebirth during our full moon meditation and ceremony.

As part of the ceremony of transformation and rebirth, we will have the opportunity to visit the legendary hill of Dun I, where on a clear day, you can look out over the Hebrides. Just below the summit of the hill is the Well of Eternal Youth. We can drink from it and experience the healing, forgiveness and renewal which come from these waters.

Here, at the Well, it is said that God meets you and takes from you the burdens that you carry. Let the spirit of Iona take you by the hand and lead you to a new beginning as you participate in allowing yourself to be touched by forgiveness and renewal. In this sacred place, you’ll feel the weight of lifetimes lift from your shoulders and you will, at long last, know the power and joy of freedom.

Afterwards, we’ll return to Oban on the mainland and continue on to Falkirk where we’ll take in the soul stirring installation of the ‘Kelpies,’ a modern homage to the fabled shape-shifting water horses that once lived in Scotland’s ancient lochs.

Leaving there, we make our way back to Edinburgh, where we’ll have free time to explore this esteemed old city and reflect on the success of our reconnection to our soul’s power and our life’s purpose. On our last night in Edinburgh, we’ll gather together for a festive farewell dinner.

Why I have been chosen to guide you on this Odyssey:

My life is an ever changing, soul evolving, joy-filled, transformational odyssey and when you accompany me on a journey like this—your life changes! Join me and share in my magic as you discover your own!

As the person who coined the phrase and wrote the book, The Spiritual Hedonist, I know the different ways of consciously choosing to live a life of class, grace and soul awareness. As a result, I understand that Spiritual Wisdom can only come about if you’re able to fully experience life, fun, creativity and the joy of connecting to your senses.

Life is a journey; I know the route – I am one of only a handful of people in the world permitted by the British government to enter and conduct ceremonies in the sacred ‘inner circle of stones’ in Stonehenge, as well as being the first metaphysician authorized by the city of Malibu, California to teach in their facilities.

From the outer world, I guide you to the inner world where you will discover and reclaim the power, beauty and magic of your life’s purpose and soul’s intention-- and from the inner world I guide you back to the outer world where you can live in the fullness of that divine knowledge and awakened spirit. Socrates said, “Know Thyself”-- I go beyond that and I teach you what I have learned, how to ‘Trust Yourself’ so that you can ‘Know Yourself.’

Helping people to be happy and feel empowered makes me happy.
Life is a grand adventure and we are meant to enjoy and grow from the experience.”
