Ceremonial Practice in the Goddess Temple
In the Goddess Temple we work with the Sacred Wheel of Bridannia/Britannia where the changing face of the Goddess is honoured at eight seasonal festivals spaced at equal points throughout the year. These are the Solar festivals to mark the passage of the Sun (Spring and Autumn Equinoxes and Summer and Winter Solstices) and the cross-quarter points, which are ancient Celtic festivals: Imbolc (on or around 1st February), Beltane (1st May), Lammas (1st August) and Samhain (31st October).
Each season, we hold public seasonal ceremonies in which we connect with the Goddess of the season and explore Her gifts to us. Our ceremonies are full of dance, song and prayer and are open to all! Our seasonal ceremonies are often held in the Goddess Hall on Benedict Street, Glastonbury.
From Imbolc 2019 we are holding our seasonal ceremonies out on the sacred landscape of Avalon, and each ceremony is especially dedicated to working with the Sisterhood of the Nine Morgens of Avalon, and the Morgen of that season.
Seasonal Goddess Embodiment Ceremonies
In one of our seasonal Embodiment evenings, come and receive messages from Goddess as She is embodied by Her Priestesses. The practice of offering embodiments of Goddess forms a core part of the Priestess of Avalon training offered by the Glastonbury Goddess Temple.
The next seasonal embodiment evening will be on 19th July 2019, 7-9 pm in the Goddess Temple.
These ceremonial evenings are offered by donation and are organised by Priestess of Avalon, Mandy Kay.
Public Ceremonies in Goddess House
In the Goddess House, different Priestesses offer ceremonies on the last Friday of every month.
The ceremonies depend on the special gifts and trainings that the Priestess offering the ceremony has received, and have in the past included: Cord-Cutting ceremonies, Despacho ceremonies, Womb blessings, Sacred Sound journeys, and many more.
These ceremonies are limited to a small group and cost £15/£10 in advance to attend. Check our Temple Event Calendar for more information.
Ceremonial Healing in Goddess House
Every Thursday in Goddess House from 1-4pm, Priestess healers offer Goddess healing by donation, for the public.

These ceremonies, which invite us into the energies of the Dark Moon, the evening prior to the New Moon, include energetic smudging and cleansing, calling in Goddess, raising energy through offering song, poem and prayer and sending out Healing into the World.
