We will be guiding you to one of Britain’s most ancient wells, nestling in the Vale of Avalon between Glastonbury Tor & Chalice Hill. This is a great place for quiteness, contemplation and meditation. We will be looking at the different parts of the garden with the description provided by the team of Chalice Well, putting our feet into the healing water and integrating the energy of this magnificient place through a collective meditation for a few minutes.

It is one of the greatest mysteries of the Isle of Avalon that two different
healing springs, one touched red with iron, the other white with calcite, should rise within a few feet of each other from the caverns beneath Glastonbury Tor. Both have healing in their flow.

The Dragon Egg

On the side of Glastonbury Tor, the egg stone is said to be the “Dragon Egg” laid out by the Dragon of Avalon. This is a sacred sanctuary where people come meditate, experience the breeze and sometimes the mist of Avalon in early morning.

Glastonbury Tor is a conical hill in Glastonbury, England, which is topped by a 14th-century roofless St Michael’s Tower rising to an elevation of 518 feet (158 m). One of the most famous landmarks in Somerset, it is known as one of the most spiritual sites in the country attracting people from all across the world to meditate, spend time to feel the powerful energetic ley lines of Earth.

The entrance to a lesser known and enchanting apple orchard named ‘Avalon Orchard’ on the eastern terraces of Glastonbury Tor. We can find from time to time the sacred apple tree of the Isle of Apples guarded by its dragon. Four orchards on the lower slopes have been re-planted with cider apples, growing the traditional Somerset varieties of Kingston Black and Yarlington Mill.

Ancient oak trees Gog and Magog. Legendary figures and legendary trees in the Somerset landscape, allegedly the two survivors of a Druid grove, young when Joseph of Arimathea was said to have planted the Glastonbury thorn tree. Old oak trees, the last remnants of forests like Selwood. They are said to be a traditional point of entry onto the island, and were also part of a ceremonial Druidic avenue of oak trees running towards the Tor and beyond. They are said to be over 2,000 years old.
