CHALICE WELL RETREAT

19-21 October 2018


Glastonbury is believed to be the home of the ancient, mythical Avalon, a place of mystery and magic where King Arthur′s sword Excalibur was forged. The Chalice Well garden in Glastonbury is amazing not just because it is beautiful, but it is a place where energy lines cross and the red river of Glastonbury begins. The perfect setting for a retreat!

Abundant Energy′s retreat will focus on developing energy through Tai Chi, Qigong and Meditation in order to increase sensitivity to the energy in this wonderful place. It will be a great opportunity to give extended time to your practice in peaceful surroundings.

On Saturday morning we will climb the Glastonbury tor for early morning Qigong practice (weather permitting) and who knows, maybe we'll be lucky enough to see the tower at the top of the tor rise through the mists of Avalon. There will also be an opportunity to spend a couple of hours in Glastonbury town on Saturday afternoon if you wish but you are welcome to stay in the meeting room for further practice.

We are extremely lucky to have the opportunity to stay overnight for 2 nights at the delightful Little St Michael′s′ and the Chalice Well Lodge′ retreat houses. We have also booked the meeting room for Saturday and Sunday practice. Within Little St. Michael′s house there is a silent meditation room which we can use during our stay. We will also have free access to the gardens including access once the gardens are closed to the public (so early mornings and evenings - times to be confirmed) which will be wonderful for our outdoor practice (weather permitting). This will be a wonderful opportunity to get away from modern life, switch off from emails and social media and submerge yourself in nature and the energies of this wonderful place.

We are delighted to have Rachel Leigh-Janney joining us to share her passion of clean plant based foods with us throughout the weekend. Rachel's food is all naturally vegan and it is also gluten free. If you would love to see some of Rachel's dishes before the retreat you can visit her website or facebook page:

Each house has a landline so you will be provided with the numbers before the retreat in case you need to be contacted in an emergency.
