Happy Thoughts – A visit to Glastonbury’s Chalice Well

It’s nice to end the year in a positive space. In this case that meant a visit to (England’s) Glastonbury and Chalice Well and Gardens.

Hug A Tree!

It’s said that the Well is among the best known and most loved holy wells in Britain.
It’s really lovely and peaceful. There are lots of nooks and crannies where you can sit quietly and meditate in peaceful silence.

Sit and chill

If you go to the Lions Head Drinking Fountain you can fill up your bottle with the special water . This is the only place in the garden water is safe to drink. It comes from the spring and is tested for quality and safety so we can indulge in drinking the cleansing healing water, and taking some away with us.

Another lovely thing to do is to walk in the healing pool. It’s been there since the middle of the 18th century. And you can see that the water contains iron. Be warned that it’s a bit cold but you get used to it. It’s very stimulating!

Cold but stimulating!

There is also the Well Head you can sit quietly and absorb the energy. It has a Vesica Pisces design with a Lance passing through it. This is an ancient sacred symbol of two interlocking circles and it symbolises a union of heaven and earth, or spirit and matter.

They’ve got a really lovely gift shop as well.
If you’re in Glastonbury the Chalice Well is a good place to quiet yourself, catch your breath, and just enjoy a bit of peaceful mindfulness before head back into town for some groovy shopping experiences!
All is well in Glasto.
