Eternal Elements: nature in Roslin Glen

14.00 10.00

Roslin Glen was a site for worship for at least two periods long before Rosslyn Chapel was built above. It hosted a shrine to the Roman Apollo and much earlier than that was a Sun Temple. However the real energy of the landscape is timeless and is generated by this unique glen, that is thick with high elemental energies. This book reflects the spiritual beauty of the nature therein.

 

Product Description

This highly attractive book has been used as a central feature in home meditation areas or altars.  Each page carries nature-inspired poetry written by accomplished poet Jackie Queally and  is accompanied by a large stunning photograph. Photography was taken over ten years of walking the glen below the chapel in all seasons. This is a semi-hard cover book fashioned in the style of an old record album- read the notes at the back that explain the background to each photo and marvel at the spiritual lights and carvings in this great temple to the elements that supports Rosslyn Chapel!

About the Poems: River Dragon

The River North Esk forms the steeply wooded valley known as Roslin Glen. It snakes down from the Pentland Hills that the St Clairs held barony of in the twelfth century. There are many wonderful legends surrounding the St Clairs of Roslyn Castle. The river meets the South Esk in what were the grounds of Dalkeith Palace, and then it winds its way down to Inveresk  before merging into the sea at Musselborough. It is a magical river that has spawned tales of mystics abiding on its banks over the centuries. e.g. Lord Hawthornden of Hawthornden Castle. RIVERS  do hold memories of the land and its events. Psychically as well as physically their purity is essential for the well-being of its animals and people. Once there were paper and gunpowder mills based on the River North Esk. Salmon that used to swim in it disappeared from over-fishing and pollution. Now the small fish are returning as industry ceases.

Some of the testimonials:

This glen is the most overlooked part to the Rosslyn Chapel energetic complex – and is key to understanding the function of the chapel itself. A very attractively produced book – well done.

William Buehler, mystic and originator of research into “Reshel”

Your books arrived safely today, and we are very impressed by the eloquence of the poetry, the quality of printing and the beautiful images. Well done!

Andrew Gilmour, East Lothian Scotland May 2010
