New Courses and Workshops for 2024

 Discovering more about Gaia, the ancestors and ourselves

I am looking for a venue for my forthcoming film The Secret History of Stonehenge as well as a private access to Stonehenge to explore the Healing Temple of the Trilithons and the Coil of the Dragon at nearby round barrows. This will be announced soon!

Dowsing and Drawing amongst the Stones

May 11th and 12th

At Avebury Social Centre High Street, Avebury, Wiltshire, SN8 1RF. 10:00-17:00 (optional group dinner at The Red Lion pub on Saturday evening).

CLICK HERE to enroll

This will be an amazing two-day course with Daniel Docherty (Sacred Geometry) and Maria (Dowsing/Geomancy) amongst the ancient sacred stones of Avebury. The morning sessions will be engaged in the drawing of significant sacred geometries relating to Avebury; the afternoons will be spent amongst the stones and surrounds of this most sacred of sanctuaries. We have some amazing locations and earth energies to explore. From the tail of the serpent temple to its heart.

Music of Gaia at Woodhenge and the Cursus Barrows

9th June – 10.30 am to 3.30 pm

I am really looking forward to this new and exciting workshop. Pythagoras and Kepler discovered the Music of the Spheres. Maria has discovered the Music of Gaia – the Harmonic Ratios that are intimately related to earth energies. Dowse the musical earth energy and if you walk into a monument in a particular manner, you walk in harmony with the prevailing Musical Harmonic of the site and the goddess – all become ONE. Come along and walk into a monument to experience, like Kepler, the wonders of ‘silent’ music that Pythagoras said he could hear – the Music of the Soul. We will also visit the nearby Cursus Barrows and dowse the COIL OF THE DRAGON; a meandering energy pattern that co-joins this linear barrow grouping

Price: £55

Glastonbury: Secrets of the Abbey and the Square of Saturn

July 6th – 10.30 am to 3.30 pm

Maria will reveal some fascinating insights into the layout of earth energies within the abbey grounds, which were the secrets of the Mystery Schools and Templars…The earth current Mary flows down the axis line is well-known, but why does she form split diamond shapes? What is the stronger and more dynamic energy? In the 1990s, it was discovered that encoded into the abbey were geodetic magic squares, which we can interact with. These caused the Mary current to flow around it. Maria will show you how to work with this earth energy, its sacred geometry, its association to Merlin and its ultimate purpose. We will also climb the tor and explore it’s earth energies and Zodiac placement.

Price: £45

Dowsing Professionally with Maria Wheatley at Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill

27th – 28th July 2024
Meet outside the Henge Shop 10.30 am – 3.30 pm

This course can be taken to Diploma Level

Dowsing Ancient America: Aztec Ruins, Chaco Canyon and the Great Ley of New Mexico

24th and 25th August

Not to be missed. Join the research and explore the past. Chaco Canyon is a place of memories that reminds us to attune to Mother Nature, the land and its energies. Maria has been to the Chaco temple complex several times with her friend and colleague Michelle Hood.

Chaco Canyon reminds us of a time that was as it was once a great capital of the ancient civilisation of the South West. Pueblo Bonito, is the largest of 12 Great Houses, and it once consisted of up to five stories containing 650 rooms. Built by the Ancestral Puebloans from AD 900 – 1150. The ancestors of the Hopi were not nomadic, like all ancient cultures, the Puebloan High Priestesses and Priests located their constructs above earth energy patterns and ley lines that determined their location and inspired the megalithic architecture. We will discover how the energies dictated its shape and unusual features such as T-doors and how coils of earth energy encircle the Kivas, (similar patterns occur at the Stonehenge mounds). Myths and the traditions speak of a nearby emergence point-Gaia guided the ancient people to locate Chaco by following the straight Great North Road…

The ancestral world of Chaco understood that Gaia’s energy was paramount. Despite the fact that the area had no trees and 200,000 massive log beams had to be imported from 46 miles (75 km) away, which were needed to create the multiple storied buildings; an extraordinary feat. This ceremonial landscape is associated with yin and yang earth currents that entwine a ley line, similar to earth currents that are found in Avebury and Glastonbury that are called Mary and Micheal and they entwine the 300-mile-long St. Micheal ley line.

In Europe, another long ley line is associated with the yang and yin Apollo and Athena earth currents that coil around its ley targeting numerous sacred sites and vast temples. But, at Chaco we meet not Christian saints or Greek gods but totem spiritual animals of Wolf and Deer. Chaco is a borrowed word from Quechua ‘chaku’ meaning ‘hunting ground.’ Wolf and Deer are yang and yin earth energy currents respectively, that meander around the Great North Road, which is in part a ley line. Wolf and Deer teach us lessons as we dowse…

Wolf Spirit
I am inspired by how Jamie Sams and David Carson describe wolf medicine as “empowering the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life.”

Deer Spirit
From the mighty stag to the gentle doe, deer shows us gentleness yet strength, protection, enhances intuition, insight and unconditional love.

We will visit other Great Houses within the Chaco complex.

Chetro Ketl and Pueblo del Arroyo

Aztec Ruins (West) is a sacred site within a harmonic landscape encouraging visions and it symbolises new beginnings. This is because the ancients moved their capital from Chaco and founded this new massive complex. It contains quintessential tri-(and quad) walled structures that have baffled archaeologists for centuries.  However, when we explore their earth energies the answer becomes clear. On site there is a spectacular reconstructed Kiva that allows us a privileged insight into the ceremonial past, and perhaps how it felt for the Ancestral Puebloans to be inside. This was, is, and will always be, a high energy location where we can feel the power of place, and where Deer earth energy is strong as it flows down the axis line of a structure bestowing the rooms with the energy of insight and intuition. Wolf earth current is nearby, not in a hunting role, but bestowing protection, loyalty and admiration of the sacred White Deer…

August 24th – Day 1. We will meet at 10am at the Visitor centre at Aztec Ruins (finish at 4 pm)

The Start of the Rare Lunar Alignment and the Avebury Standing Stones

15th December – 3 pm – 4:30 pm

Tour to Witness a Lunar Alignment at Avebury: ‘Rising of the Divine Feminine and Earth Energy Activation.

Maria has determined several stones at Avebury will become activated as the Night of the High Moon beckons. Join us to explore the Rising of the Divine Feminine as the Moon climbs high in the sky and the energy patterns of Gaia’s deep waters also rise. This will be a night to remember when the Moon rises above a beautiful standing stone, set above a rare form of a geospiral. Likewise, we can synchronise with the Moon’s most Northerly Moonrise that builds up to a grand finale the following year. A night to behold, past and in the present, then and now. We will see the alignment that our ancestors incorporated into the site aligned to a silvery stone. Meet at outside of the Henge Shop and then a tour Avebury. Afterward we can socialise in the Red Lion inn.
