Mysterious Universe UK

21st and 22nd September 2024

Ceres Hall, Devizes Corn Exchange, Devizes, Wiltshire

Welcome to our second annual weekend gathering of like-minded people who want to learn from one another about our Mysterious Universe. Our new venue is in the market town of Devizes, where there will be presentations on Saturday with speaker tables, giving you a chance to talk with authors during breaks. We have also invited some therapists to share their wisdom. Devizes has numerous restaurants, cafes, a wholefood shop, pubs and even a castle!

This year we are excited to announce some great speakers  who will be discussing the mysteries of the Earth, including Crichton Miller on how the Celtic Cross was once used to navigate the globe, the ‘Cosmos in Stone’ − the hidden geometry of Wells cathedral with Tom Bree, Glastonbury’s secret underground tunnels and the Chartres labyrinth with Geoff Stray, connecting with the healing powers of the Earth and the wisdom of plants with Juliette Bryant, Stonehenge’s musical ratios, earth energies, lost stones, and much more… hosted by Maria Wheatley and Roma Harding. We look forward to meeting you.

We are offering a coach tour on the Sunday to Stanton Drew stone circles with myself and Juliette Bryant, and to Wells Cathedral with Tom Bree. Seats are limited so please book early! Please note that you can only attend the Tour if you are attending the conference.

Juliette Bryant: Connecting to the wisdom of plants

Juliette will guide us through a journey of how to create a beautiful space of sacred union within ourselves and the Earth by deepening our understanding of plants and mushrooms. In this talk, you will learn about the amazing power of the Earth, her medicines and our place as an intricate part of this beautiful living world. Furthermore, when we balance the divine masculine and feminine, we can align more deeply within our own truth.  By connecting to the wisdom of plants and mushrooms, we can help our health and well-being, but we also need to be supported by and care for the Earth on which we live.

Juliette Bryant is a leading figure in the field of health transformation. She has travelled the world seeking out and studying the most effective tools for achieving good health and healing. Juliette has three published books and has written countless articles for magazines, newspapers and journals, all arising from her extensive research into healthy living, well-being and nutrition. She offers her professional services as a Nutritional Health Consultant to individuals and groups within both public and business sectors. Her dynamic, intuitive and evidenced presentations are well-received, enjoyable and noted for their simplicity and accessibility. 

Juliette’s website features a wealth of original and free content as well as details of her online courses, mentorship work and an extensive range of superfood blends, tonics and supplements that are organically

Tom Bree: The Cosmos in Stone − Sacred Geometry of a Master Mason

The word geometry means ‘earth measure’ and this describes the rootedness of Sacred Geometry. The harmonious and beautiful forms of geometry can also act as a contemplative gateway into a spiritual mystery that leads beyond what is immediately seen by the human eye.

Tom will focus upon the use of this knowledge in the designs of Gothic cathedrals − particularly in relation to the first English Gothic cathedral in the small city of Wells in Somerset. The medieval Christian cosmic mythos emphasises the ancient myth of Venus; its rising and setting forms a cosmic mystery play in which the soul first descends into the deathly underworld − as the Evening Star − followed by an ascent into heaven as the Morning Star. The movements of Venus also plot the pentagram and octagram, which thus create the mystery play’s geometric choreography. In Tom’s presentation, the final ascent into heaven is then characterised by John Michell’s famous diagram in which the relationship of the Earth and Moon form the dimensions of a pyramid triangle that points the soul heavenward through the planetary spheres

Tom Bree is a geometer-artist, teacher and writer. He studied Sacred Geometry under the Master Geometer Professor Keith Critchlow at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London, and now teaches practical geometry and philosophy classes at the Prince’s Foundation, Emerson College, as well as for many other educational organisations. Tom has spent the past 12 years researching the use of geometry, cosmology and musical ratios in Gothic cathedral design, and the cosmic mythos that prevailed from the ancient world into medieval Christianity. This research has now finally been published in a large full-colour book containing over 400 images. Signed copies of Cosmos in Stone will be available at the event.

Geoff Stray: Underground Tunnels and Labyrinths

This is a talk in two parts. Firstly, Geoff will map out the underground tunnels of Glastonbury. In 1908, Frederick Bligh Bond was employed as Director of Excavations at Glastonbury Abbey and, with a psychic medium, secretly used automatic writing to contact the spirits of nine dead monks to aid in locating the lost chapels. Two rare articles from Bligh Bond, plus the 2014 geophysics survey by Reading University, have enabled more clarity on the locations of underground tunnels, and allow a hint at where lost treasure may be located! Recent video footage will be shared of his subterranean adventures.

Part two will cover the Chartres Labyrinth Project that very few others have noticed, which took some eleven years to solve. In 2006, Geoff observed three circles of light falling onto the Labyrinth which started a unique investigation into how these lights were used in conjunction with the cup marks round the Labyrinth to calculate the date of Easter. The result is a cathedral “meridian” that predates the one first known (in Florence) by 274 years… at last, we have a smoking gun!

Geoff Stray is the author of Beyond 2012 and The Mayan and Other Ancient Calendars in the Wooden Book series. More recently, his historical investigation, The Long-Lost Glastonbury Sapphire solves a five-hundred-year-old mystery. Glastonbury Underground is a constantly updated guide to the tunnels of Avalon. Copies of Geoff’s books will be available, plus, hopefully a brand-new book on the Chartres Labyrinth Chronometer. Geoff used to be a shoemaker (not knowing that his ancestors were shoemakers, going back to the Middle Ages), and has created the first V-Twin Panther motorcycle.

Crichton Miller: An Astrological Revelation the Cross and the Serpent

Crichton describes how the Celtic Cross, known as the Holy Rood in Scotland, was an ancient instrument capable of spherical geometry that could be used for astrology and to navigate the oceans in prehistory. This sacred icon is also known as the Sun Cross, Odin’s Wheel, the Wheel of Taranis, the Medicine Wheel and the NWIT in Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Crichton will discuss how astrology alongside this remarkable instrument can be used for timekeeping and in architecture, helping the Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Vikings, Christians, and the later Knight Templar, to build civilisations − and why they believed in reincarnation and resurrection.

Crichton presents evidence of such an instrument that is accurate to 10ths of a degree, hidden in the north shaft of the Queens Chamber in the Great Pyramid of Khufu and discovered in 1872, yet not recognised for its ingenious capabilities in designing the Giza Necropolis. His research traces this icon through five thousand years of myth and disinformation up to the Middle Ages, repairing a jigsaw of forgotten knowledge that reveals secret Pre-Columbian transatlantic voyages using astrology, long before longitude was determined in the 17th century.

Crichton Miller is a Knight Commander of the Order of the Fleur De Lys, a Military Veteran, Yacht Master and retired CEO. He is a published researcher, author and lecturer on the original methods of ancient astrology and seafaring astronavigation. He was awarded two British patents in 2001 and 2002 on the pre-Christian Solar Cross, as a prehistoric surveying, astronomical and navigation instrument, capable of spherical geometry before the invention of trigonometry. Copies of his book The Golden Thread of Time will be available.

Maria Wheatley: The Secret History of Stonehenge and the Music of the Earth

Maria is your host and this year she too will offer a presentation. She will discuss her ground-breaking research into Stonehenge’s secret history. She reveals how, and why, the ancient architects designed a standing stone that you could once sit inside, an extraordinary stone that was stolen by His Majesty’s occultist, as well as healing temples that were set above earth energies for healing purposes. She will show us how spectacular the monument once looked it was Stonehenge not quite as you know it!

Maria has discovered that certain earth energies equate to musical harmonics, which she calls ‘the music of Gaia’. Exploring the Stonehenge landscape, she realised that if you walk a particular path around the monument in a certain manner a labyrinth is formed, which equates to the harmonic of the site. Uniting to the temple’s musical frequency can, for some, awaken the soul to its divine purpose.

Maria Wheatley is an international speaker, author, geomancer and dowser. In 2015 she discovered the longheaded civilisation and feels she speaks on their behalf as they are ignored by academia. She tells you things that the archaeologists either don’t know or don’t want to tell you! Signed copies of her ground-breaking new book, The Secret History of Stonehenge, will be available.

Stanton Drew stone circles: lost wisdom amidst the stones

Join Juliette Bryant and Maria Wheatley for the morning exploring Stanton Drew’s stone circles. Juliette will show us the wild plants in this incredible landscape and explain their healing properties and how to connect with them. Maria will discuss the powerful and transformative earth energies of Stanton Drew, how the Moon circle was dedicated to the Dark Moon and the north-east circle to Venus in the form of a highly unusual geodetic energy pattern, shown to her by an expert Chinese geomant.

Lunch: option of picnic or food available at the local pub, The Druids Arms (booking essential).

Wells Cathedral: sacred geometry and the mysteries of Venus

In the afternoon we will meet Tom Bree who will guide us around Wells Cathedral. He will offer us a deep insight into his fascinating research, the relationship of the cathedral with Venus and how sacred geometry is at the heart of the architecture. This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from Tom for a private tour where his inspirations come alive in a spectacular location. There will be limited time to walk around the Bishop’s Palace.
