Medicinal plants - Fire ceremony - Mantra - Somatic Experiencing - Ancient practices for wholeness & heart opening.

12-14th August,

Avalon, Glastonbury

Lead by: Laura Reeves & Josh Swords

Music by: Lucidia Omamori

Within a magickal fruit tree orchard on the side of Gaia’s heart chakra Glastonbury Tor, we will gather for a weekend of deep soul expansive work to guide you back home. 

This weekend will be held amidst the Perseid meteor shower and under the Hazel full moon, known to the Celts as Coll, translated as “the life force inside you”. 

Weaving practices for deep life force energy clearing, cultivating and rejuvenation, we will work with the power of the land, the elementals, soul family and our inner mystery to guide us on a journey back to magick, deeper wisdom and wholeness. 

Be guided by incredibly experienced medicine musicians in vocal expression, song and powerful mantra practice; work with medicinal plants for deep nature connection, movement and dance; experience ancient Daoist work for inner rebalancing, stagnation clearing and harmonising of the energetic system; experience held trauma informed practice for emotional and trauma release; watch the asteroid shower from a hot tub & sauna; dance; and remember the beauty of your existence. 

 Highlights Include: 

  • Experiencing altered states of consciousness in an energetically powerful location held by trained practitioners; 
  • Work with plants for nature connection, expansion and soul connection; 
  • Live medicine music held by renowned medicine musician Lucidia; 
  • QiGong, meditation, conscious movement & emotional release; 
  • Fire ceremonies, asteroid shower gazing, dream work & connection to otherworldly realms;  
  • Trained breathwork practitioner holding powerful pranayama

Location

This particular spot on the Tor was said by the writers of the infamous Glastonbury Zodiac to be a gateway to the underworld and the Celestine city of Avalon, gateway to the Fae and the otherworld.


It is said by many prophesies and teachers that we live in a powerful time in Earth’s history. At this time of great transition, there are those of us needed to come together to catalyse this shift back into living life from the heart. What better place to make this shift and do this work from the Earth’s Heart chakra - in very rare opportunity to work privately on the foothills of the Tor itself.


Our garden of Avalon includes space for camping, or if you’d prefer, there are many Airbnbs and accommodation within a short walk.

Reviews from our last retreat:

"The other people attending the retreat became family..the Ceremonies ran by Laura and Josh were executed with every inch of their being, the music by Lucidia was angelic... the only negative was that we didn't have another day. I departed the retreat full of love light peace in my soul an forever grateful to Laura and Josh for everything they did for us that weekend and can't wait for the next retreat that they will be running as I will be there. Forever grateful."

"Laura & Josh provided an experience that is unlike any I have had before. I have been to many retreats and this was by far the best one. The level of intentionality was unprecedented. The support, activities and spiritual practices created such a transformational experience (even though it was only for 1 full day and 2 half days). The fact that they were able to cultivate such an experience and encourage nurturing; as well as, rejuvenation is a testament to how powerful they are as healers. I feel a sense of connection with myself that I will take with me into all aspects of my life. The connection with the group and the group exercises also created a harmony and synergy between us all. The retreat center was epic. I can't wait to attend the next one"
