the Conscious Guide to Glastonbury

The Isle of Avalon, now known as Glastonbury in England’s south-west has been a sacred place for millennia. Emerging from the mists of the marshes of the Somerset levels we can only imagine what it was like to approach with reverence to the awe inspiring mystical isle. The marshes were drained in the middle ages to create more agricultural land.

Whether you’re visiting for three hours or for three months, Glastonbury is a must for everything you can think of that is spiritual, new age, pagan or even environmentally sustainable lifestyles.

This alternative community is highly diverse so you’re bound to find something you’re interested in.

Glastonbury is abundant with fairs, conferences, talks and workshops so there’s always something going on. Or if it’s a quiet retreat you’re looking for, then there are plenty of gems tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of the High Street.

Glastonbury has some highly energetic sites

Take vigil at Bride’s Mound, the gateway to the Isle of Avalon

Straddle the lay line at Glastonbury Abbey

Spend some time in the area of your sign in the Glastonbury landscape zodiac and see what happens

Be transported through the entrance portal to the Isle of Avalon
