The Gateway to Goddess in Avalon

“THE GODDESS is alive in Glastonbury, visible for all to see in the shapes of the sacred landscape. She is soft as the rounded hills of Her body and sweet as the apple blossom that grows in Her orchards. Here Her love enfolds us every day and Her voice is always near, carried on the wind, whispering through the mists of Avalon. Her Mysteries are as deep as the Cauldron She stirs, taking us down into Her depths and lifting us up to Her heights. She is our Source, our Inspiration and our Love.”

– Kathy Jones

Our Temple is devoted to bringing Goddess alive in the world.
As a modern day Goddess-loving organisation and community based in Glastonbury, Somerset, we are dedicated to the development of a spirituality tradition rooted in the empowerment of women and men. We have been a registered place of worship since 2003.

Goddess Pilgrimages

Goddess Pilgrimages

A pilgrim is someone who sees life as a sacred journey, who sees the earth as a sacred home, who sees the universe as a process… We make the outer journey in order to make an inner journey. The inner landscape is shaped by the outer landscape and vice versa. Therefore, by making an journey to a holy place, we are moved to explore our inner landscape and make our journey to the inner source within.

Wise words by the inspiring Satish Kumar who in the 60’s walked from India the four corners of the nuclear world – Moscow, Paris, London and Washington.

Sacred pilgrimages are journeys of the soul, bringing us in deeper connection with ourselves and the divine. Journeying intentionally to these sacred places can bring healing into our hearts. They can awaken our soul, and help us to remember who we are, and who we once were before.

Priestess and Priest of Avalon Training

with Kit Crowther, Luna Silver and Kathy Jones

Start date: 26th/27th October 2024

In ancient times the role of a Priestess or Priest of the Goddess was recognized as a Sacred Calling, a life lived in service to Goddess within one of Her Sacred Temples, found all around the world in many different cultures. The majority of those Goddess Temples were destroyed when patriarchal forces took over the world thousands of years ago.

Thankfully Goddess is returning to our awareness. She is once again being recognised as Divine Source and Great Mother of All. Many women and some men are beginning to re-member and re-claim an ancient path of devotion and service to Goddess. Communities and Temples of Goddess are being built anew in Her world, allowing people to come together to learn who Goddess is, to celebrate Her, to recreate Her Sacred Sanctuaries and to experience Her wonderful loving nature.
