Cumbria, the Land of the Goddess and the Warrior

About this Event

The Lake District National Park in Cumbria is a magical mountainous landscape that has enticed people of all ages and beliefs over many centuries, a land that many feel to be the sacred heart of Britain.

The present boundaries of Cumbria include the old regions of Cumberland, Westmorland and part of Lancashire. However, for centuries the Lake District and its mountains had their own natural boundaries, formed in the south by Morecambe Bay, the Irish Sea to the west and the Solway Firth in the north.

With Shap only nine miles south of the monuments at Penrith, this area has to be one of the most sacred in Britain. Interestingly, the dowsing of the Elen and Belinus currents that follow the Belinus line through Cumbria has revealed much more of the history of this hidden landscape.

It is of no surprise that the old pagan worship of the goddess Brig, Brighida or Bride has survived in Cumbria longer than in any other part of England, Scotland and Ireland. F. J. Carruthers writes in People Called Cumbri: ‘Transmission of Brighida from Ireland into Cumbria or indeed any part of the Brigantian North Country was unnecessary; she was already the principal deity there.’ Cumbria is also rich in traditions and history harvested from the works of the ancient Celtic bards or poets, which it shares with Wales, Ireland, Northumbria and southern Scotland.

This talk will illuminate the heritage of our County, through the stories the landscape continue to tell us if you know where and how to read them, through it's people, places and holding the centre point of our British Isles.

Gary and Caroline’s spiritual travelogue of Albion and its earth mysteries continues with the exploration and research of ancient navel or focal points of Celtic Britain and Ireland. They will also reveal their connection with old and modern pilgrim routes, the healing potential within the land, and the worship of the Celtic Aquarian goddess Bride.

Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare have spent many years travelling the UK researching for their book The Spine of Albion and walking the pilgrim trails, dowsing ancient sites and uncovering lost knowledge. They have a keen interest in the sacred mystery cult of the goddess and the mythology and folklore of Britain. They lead groups from all over the world around Britain’s sacred sites and run workshops introducing people to the magic, science and history of the landscape.
