Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Geomancy (MAG)


Geomancy explores the realm where human consciousness meets and dialogues with the Spirit of the Earth. It empowers the harmonious interaction between person and place, and can enhance spiritual growth.

Powerpoints in Time

While Geomancy honours the spirit of place, it also honours its intersection with the Spirit of Time. We honour all spiritual paths with heart, and so, we would begin by recognising that different paths see different days as special. On these islands, the builders of Stonehenge honoured the Summer Solstice, at Newgrange, they honoured the Winter Solstice, but all spiritual paths and world religions hold different days as special.
You are looking at a completely revised Mid-Atlantic Geomancy.  We have moved to a new Internet Service Provider, rewritten the <.html>, and have added new material - especially a section on Dyslexia and Dowsing and its connection with Geomancy.  Also, you can now read this entire website formatted for both cell phones and iPads, so it will be much easier to read on these devices.  So, I invite you to sit back and realax and enjoy our latest issue of our MAG E-zine.

MAG E-Zine # 53 - The Oldest (post Roman) Labyrinth in …
 

What is the oldest post Roman labyrinth in England?  In Ireland?

Recently I was talking with Jeff Saward, one of the world’s leading expert on labyrinths and a long time friend, who has helped me in innumerable ways over the years as I have involved myself more and more in these ancient single path magical tools.  I was surprised to find which are the oldest post Roman ones in the British Isles, and this has spurred me on to write a tale of the oldies but goldies that have been built in Britain later than the time of the Roman Empire.

Of course, one of the oldest in the world is Mogor in Galicia in Spain – about 2000± BCE.

But after the Roman mosaic ones, the earliest ones in Britain are surprisingly not able to be walked!


In England

STOP THE PRESS!

 

At the last moment, just before I sent this MAG E-zine # 53 out, Jeff Saward reminded me that there were several post Roman two-dimensional labyrinths in England that were found prior to the three-dimensional ones I have been writing about in this issue.   :  (    He has given me several examples - the Abingdon manuscript¹ from about 1030 to 1040 CE, and the better known Mappa Mundi, a map of the known world, found in Hereford Cathedral.

However, in terms of three-dimensional labyrinths, the oldest post Roman representation of a labyrinth in England dates back to the 14th Century - probably from the 1390's - and can be found in a roof boss in St. Mary’s Redcliff in Bristol.
