Wisdom begins in wonder


A Window into Infinity: 17-22 December 2016, to celebrate the Winter Solstice, saluting the rebirth of light. A magical journey and adventure to SARDINIA, in the centre of the Mediterranean, in a primordial island full of ancestral charm. In Sardinia we will discover the remains of ancient lost civilizations, which left impressive and mysterious megalithic structures, thousands of years old, where our Ancestors honoured and celebrated the great principles that govern the eternal cycle of life, death and resurrection, in harmony with Mother Earth and the Cosmos. We shall visit the mysterious Nuraghi, pointing to the sunrise at Winter Solstice, the Neolithic Ziggurat-shaped step pyramid/temple of Monte d’Accoddi (unique in the whole of Sardinia and Europe), Tombe dei Giganti (“Giants’ Tombs”), Sacred Wells, Sacred Springs, Menhirs and Domus de Janas (“House of the Fairies”).
