In 2002 I visited Rosslyn Chapel. I also read the book, Rosslyn, by Tim Wallace-Murphy and Marilyn Hopkins. I held a deep desire to visit Cintra/Sintra which is 14 miles, 23 kms northwest of Lisbon. In the book Sintra is mentioned as the eighth place, and starting point, on the European Path of Initiation that includes seven other major stops in Europe. I won't list them here, you must read the book if you have an interest. Ah-ha! An ah-ha moment for some of you as yes, this ties in with my walking the Retorno journey along the Camino de Santiago. Walking FROM Santiago de Compostela, Spain, TO Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France (the opposite direction).
Before walking to Santiago de Compostela in 2002 I knew that one day I would walk the return journey. Over the years I have visited five of the sacred places mentioned for this Pilgrimage of Initiation. It is 'killing' me that I have not visited the others - maybe this year I will visit one of the three left for me to visit.
If you plan on visiting Rosslyn, Scotland, then you should also read: The Stone Puzzle by Philip Coppens.
I have walked the Camino de Santiago from various starting points and here is the original photography website 2002-2009 and the latest site 2010 - Present

Quinta de Regaleira
A very special place.
Kathleen McGowan a message. Kathleen is the author of The Magdalene Line a series of historical novels - The Expected One, The Book of Love, The Poet Prince and her self-help book based on The Lord's Prayer, The Source of Miracles.
I wrote, "Kathleen, is this photo showing a coronation of Magdalene?" and this is her response, "A million percent YES. The traditional church will tell you it is Jesus and his mother - does that look like his mother to you? but in ancient tradtions and still within some of the Orthodox traditions, the bridegroom places a crown upon the brides head. By the way, this is GORGEOUS. xo"
