The Chalice Well
Holy Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
Our transformational journey begins . . . .
At Heathrow Airport, Thursday, April 2nd at 9:30 AM
our group unites for the first time. Your guides and “gatekeepers” will greet you and escort you to the “Magic Bus” and off we go to the first of many sacred and magical sites:
Avebury Stone Circle
ninety miles west of London, is the largest known prehistoric stone ring in the world.
We’ll revitalize our energies as we walk around the energy-rich stones of this spiritual center surrounding the village of Avebury
Lunch will be at the Red Lion Pub in the center of the stones, rumored one of the most haunted pubs in England.
After lunch, with our senses buzzing with energy from the ancient stones, we’ll continue on to:
West Kennett Long Barrow and then
Glastonbury, the ancient “Isle of Avalon”, a small but unique town filled with rich traditions, myths, and legends, will be our “home base” for the next eight days of exploring. As a Mecca for pilgrimage for thousands of spiritual seekers, Glastonbury has several sacred sites of its own, for us to fully experience, including the Chalice Well, the Glastonbury Tor and the Glastonbury Abbey Ruins. The Chalice Well and Gardens is a holy sanctuary of beauty and peace at the heart of our sacred journey. Many experience inspiration and healing in this mystical setting. Located directly in the gardens is the Little St. Michael’s Retreat House. Little St. Michaels is a private place of quiet and solitude. It embraces us with an intimate place to rest and befriend ourselves and to explore the uniqueness of your life’s journey.
3:00 PM First, we will settle in and acclimate to the mystical surroundings of this place of peace and power,
4:30 Brief silent meditation in the “Upper Room.” See description of "Upper Room"

8:00 After supper you will have free time, or optional guided meditation, and soon after, you may want to hit the comfy bed that awaits you.

Guided Meditation and Sacred Circle with Nina Patrick
1 PM We make our way up The Glastonbury Tor with light refreshment at the top.
The Michael and Mary ley lines are especially powerful. But it’s only on the Tor that their energies combine. In a harmonious dance of earth patterns, the lines move ever closer as they approach the summit. At the top, they merge and unite. They connect major sacred sites throughout the South West and beyond. Perhaps this is what makes it easy for so many other kinds of opposites to harmoniously come together on the Tor.
3:00 We make our way down The Glastonbury Tor
5:30 Back to Little St. Michael’s for afternoon meditation (Upper Room)
7:00 After supper you will have free time for inner work, and soon after, you may want to hit the comfy bed that awaits you.
