THE ALCHEMICAL JOURNEY
A Zodiac Mystery School Adventure
Experience the healing power of the astrological wheel as we pilgrimage through the seasonal year exploring the myth and symbolism of the twelve signs of the zodiac, and walking the sacred landscape of the mysterious Glastonbury Zodiac. Discover a deeper and more authentic you, and be surprised by the depth of your own untapped creativity.
Here is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself for a whole year in the compelling mysteries of the Zodiac, and discover how to tap into the transformational power and deep secrets of each sign. We each carry the energy and potential of all twelve signs within us, and each sign carries an important series of lessons for us to absorb and integrate into our lives. By entering consciously into a contemplation of each sign in turn, we can learn to absorb their powerful teaching into the centre of our being.
The Glastonbury Zodiac comprises a circle of giant landscape effigies soaked in history and legend and mapped out subtly in the rivers, contours and ancient trackways of the Somerset countryside. Each weekend of the journey you will encounter mythical tales from ancient cultures, local legends and alchemical symbols, and have the chance to experience these at a personal level through simple exercises and group activities. And then we will guide you safely and poetically through the twelve portals of this extraordinary landscape star temple, and so by walking the landscape of each zodiacal effigy, you will be drawn deeper into the alchemical power of the signs and come to see this potential expressed in your own life.
The Alchemical Journey offers profoundly embodied learning experience. You don’t need to know any astrology to get the most out of the Journey as you will find through the workshops that you already carry its wisdom deep within yourself. It is an adventure, a quest for deeper self-understanding. And sharing the journey with others, you will develop deep and abiding friendships along the way.
Co-facilitators John Wadsworth & Anthony Thorley have been leading The Alchemical Journey in Glastonbury since 2009. They will also be joined at certain points during the year by astrologer Lynne Speight who also has many years experience of The Alchemical Journey.
The course runs for one year, thirteen evenings & thirteen full days, with one gathering per month, while the Sun is in each zodiacal sign.
