Retreats with Jeremy RJ White
Walking with Merlin Retreat - October 6th thru 10th
Using the magic of the Elder Futhark My retreats are arranged to create opportunities to walk through numerous doorways of energies from long ago. Rune stones and the tales of the Ancient Isle of Avalon, we will walk you through the veil bringing to life the magic and mystery of the lands and our ancestors, awakening a knowing that has long been forgotten.
I would be honoured to guide you across the lands of Avalon, to let you experience, if but for a brief moment, the energy of the land that I am blessed to walk. To spin my tales of ancient times, offering profound wisdom and lessons for us in our modern world.
If you are feeling called to attend any one of these special gatherings, please schedule a short 15 minute online Zoom session where we can explore together what the runes have to say about your attendance.
Blessings, Jeremy White

Join me as we embrace the magic and majesty of these humble places.
The Southwest of England is scattered with healing waters and holy springs. On this adventure we will encounter rejuvenating waterfalls, mystical dark pools to scry in and drink from the chalice of the Goddess Brigit. Each well and watering hole served its purpose and took its place in the myths of the magic of Britain.
We will start in the Caverns of Cornwall, at Merlin's cave and the wild waterfall that cascades of the cliff. This is where I start most of my retreats; the place where we ask the spirits and nymphs guardians to sup from the magic of the land's blood, asking that we be allowed to partake to the Earth's healing waters. Then to bathe in the pool of St Nectan's Keive, of the Fountain of Youth, where all negativity and unnecessary and emotional ties are washed away.
We will travel out onto Bodmin Moor, a wild and barren place, where windswept monoliths stand proud and tall, unmoved by the march of time and standing watch over the Black pools of Bodmin. At the Hurlers , a group of three standing stone circles. we will stare into depths of the dark water and ask for wisdom and guidance to be revealed.
We will take in Tarr Steps on Exmoor, a 3000-year-old stone slab bridge. Here we will paddle in the cool waters of the mystical river that flows beneath and tune into the echoes of the past.
On to the legendary waters of Avalon and the Lady of The Lake, where there are too many springs and stories to share in this brief note. For me this is where the real healing begins. Close by is the city of Wells, the name says it all, dotted with an array of healing springs.
Then finally we visit Bath and the Roman Bathhouse, where the volcanic spring of the Goddess Aqua Sulis bubbles out of the ground and you can embrace and enjoy of the spa that is still operational today.
You'll experience the waters and sense the Gods and Goddesses that watch over them. To our ancient peoples, these were the doorways to the other world, especially the moors, bogs and levels, the halfway world communication can occur with the spirits that dwelt just beyond.
In the Footsteps of Arthur
Tintagel, Merlin's Cave, Bodmin Moor, Boscastle, Wearyall Hill, Glastonbury Tor
Lodging in Cornwall and Glastonbury
We begin in Cornwall, walking in the steps of Arthur, taking a pilgrimage to the place of his mythical birth. Prepare yourself for the unseen as the doorways open to the knowledge, the magick and healing as you experience all there is for you to experience. After all, this is a personal journey...
While in Cornwall, we will rest our heads at Camelot Castle, located just a stone's throw from the magic of Merlin's Cave and Titangel Castle. We will ask the land's permission to explore them. The dramatic views of northern coastline will mesmerize you and take you back in time as you envision masted vessels out at sea and local trade in port. As we walk expect to encounter the dragon energy of Kernow, the whispering silence of the isolated ancient circles of Bodmin Moor, and visit the Hurlers Stone Circles. We will explore Boscastle and the Museum of Witchcraft where you will explore the history of the ancient craft and the magic of the surrounding town.
We will be in Cornwall close to the time Samhain (Halloween). Here is where Arthur is linked with the Winter King, who rises on this night and leads the wild hunt across shadowy land. Arthur, Odin and Gwynn Ap Nude are all linked with the festival of the Wild Hunt. A time of year where abundance and health gives way to magick and learning. This is a great time to get lost in the mysteries of the land.
There are visits to the legendary place of Arthur's burial and the sacred site of Camelot. Many argue King Arthur was a Scot, Welsh or even an Englishman. Regardless, I believe his story touched all from the Northern Wall, to the mountains of Wales and on into the Somerset Levels.
While we explore the mystical energy of this place, we will rest and rejuvenate at the Healing Waters Retreat and Sanctuary, just a short distance for the Tor. Our time here will include a guided tour of Avalon; Glastonbury Tor, Orchards of Avalon, Jesus Field, and the Holy Thorn Tree. We will experience the energy of Camelot, exploring South Cadbury Castle and Avebury Stone Circle on the way to Stonehenge where we will have a sacred ceremony. We will also walk the grounds of the Glastonbury Abbey and have ceremony in the White Spring.
Ceremony is a very big part of all my retreats. In ceremonly, we connect with spirit, the land and our ancestors. As we walk, and perform ceremonies in the lands of Avalon we, will feel the magic come alive and in doing so heal our own wounds.
