informative and beautiful scenery, with a chance it will ripple through your heart and soul.
21 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This series is brilliant. It moved me in many ways. I greatly appreciate the series and the information it contains. As it awakens and stirs the cell memories within. I really don't mind how many times Neil Oliver appears as it is his passions and information that makes it a great series. Many thanks to all whom contributed. There are things said and unsaid, the collective consciousness still resonates strongly. I make big crystal circles (and stone circles) because my heart wants to and when I watch these series I can feel the confirmation that there is a deep meaning behind it all. Thank you. I have not had the opportunity yet to walk Britain, Wales, Scotland and Ireland in this life yet when I watch these series I so long for it. Sincerely thank you.
