What to expect, schedule & prices

Next event!! 3-9th September 2018, Nature’s Retreat Centre, Butleigh, Somerset.

Come along to our Glastonbury Zodiac walk from 3- 9th September 2018! You can come for the whole week, to walk all 12 signs of the zodiac or come along for just a day and walk your sign to get alignment to your sun sign and purpose.

We will walk the entire zodiac from Aries to Pisces over the week starting from the centre in Butleigh.

In Emma’s words: “Welcome to the Somerset Star Temple, a landscape
zodiac where the stars in the heavens are mirrored on Earth in the contours and features of the land.

This land offers a powerful healing experience of truthful
reflection, a connection to life purpose and offers many
teachings based on the changes you are undergoing at the time. It’s also a sacred experience of connecting to Earth.

The land of Avalon really is an extraordinary teacher, reflecting you back to your self. Walking the land with a group is a deeply cleansing, healing and rewarding experience, and because Glastonbury
is a window between the worlds, a global portal, the experience it offers is truly unique.

As for the schedule, the dates are Monday 3 – Saturday 8 September
(and if possible a get together on Sunday 9 September morning). We
will be walking 2 signs a day, for example, Aries and Taurus on
Monday etc. It will mainly be walking; the focus will be on the experiences and teachings that we receive from the land and the sharing of them!

It’s a real pilgrimage/quest – we will be walking the journey the Earth takes around the Sun in a year.

I’m open to people joining the walk for one day, if they want to walk their zodiac sign, and can join the established group considerately.

Insights into life purpose. Communion with the Earth and the Sun.






You will be walking from Aries to Pisces in the Glastonbury Zodiac. The focus is on walking sacred land and the experiences we have in it and part of each sign will be walked in silence.  The distance is about max 5 miles a day but we’ll be walking at a moderate pace to appreciate the landscape and to include all physical abilities and children. This is a family friendly event and we encourage children to attend. 

What is Pilgrimage?

Through the motion of our physical bodies and the rhythm of our feet in our natural environment we start to be in tune with life and make a deeper connection to self. Pilgrimage is a journey that is experienced on every level of our being, it is a cleansing soul journey, as well as being an offering to our Earth and the Sun that sustains us. In Pilgrimage you walk away limitation within yourself and connect more powerfully to purpose and what is genuinely meaningful in life. It is also an adventure to share the journey with others. We are passionate about re-kindling pilgrimage as sacred land is a great resource of wisdom, honesty and inspiration.

What is the the Glastonbury Zodiac?

A 10 mile diameter circle with Glastonbury in the North consisting of 12 land effigies. Each effigy/land feature corresponds to a Zodiac sign and holds qualities of that sign in physical form The Zodiac Circle of the Stars – are the 12 archetypes of creation. In one year from Earth the Sun is seen to travel through the star belt of the Zodiac. In fact it is the Earth that is travelling around the Sun. The journey we take around the Sun every year and our relationship to the constellations is key to the cycles of personal and universal evolution: evolution through re-volution! Our own journey through the Zodiac is the journey the Earth takes around the Sun every year as we experience the 12 influences of the Zodiac.The Summer Solstice 2012 directly relates to the Winter Solstice 2012 in that these are the 2 points in this year when the Earth, Sun and the Centre of our Milky Way galaxy line up. This pilgrimage has been especially chosen to honour this time and to consciously engage with this turning point.
