Eternal Elements: nature in Roslin Glen
Roslin Glen is a veritable sacred glen that lies directly below the famous Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. This beautiful wild glen hosted a Roman shrine to Apollo, and much earlier than that was a Sun Temple. On a higher reality plane the energy of this local landscape is essentially timeless, all generated by this unique glen, that is laden with deeply spiritual elemental energies. This book reflects the spiritual beauty of the nature therein.

Example of Poem entry:
Serpent of the Mirror
snaking through the woods
blessing the land
Spirit races through my blood
I know you store the memory for us all
And oh what power and might
lies with you Dragon!
the breath of freedom
into each rushing droplet

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.
A few 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, earth grid technician and originator of research into “Reshel” system of sacred knowledge.
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!
