Glastonbury’s favourite medical intervention and cure-all is, amazingly, a tiny sugar pill. You’re not allowed to touch them except with your mouth and mint kills the magic. They call it Homeopathy.
Traditional Homeopathy is based on the German premise that the less there is of something, the more potent it is. No-one knows why. Continue reading “The Miracle of Homeopathy”
“You’re no better than Hitler, you lot. It’s not natural. Get a life. It’s people like you that cause all the wars. Vegetables scream when you pull them up so that makes you a murderer. Oh, poor little plant…
Have a burger, hur hur hur…“*
Vegans exist in a thin and exhausted scatter across society, occasionally clumping together in the more alternative towns across the country. They can sometimes be found trying to live together in car-free, oil-free, herbivorous, rule-filled communities or communing at a vegan festival stall, eating chocolate cake.

What guide would this be if you weren’t shown the ancient Art of Feng Shui? It influences door colour, product placement, shop fronts and where the toilets are located in most of Glastonbury’s shops.
Feng Shui is an ancient system for getting what you want, like stamping your feet or holding up a post office with a replica shot-gun except done nicely with the harmonising mystical skills of geomancy. Continue reading “Tassels and Red Paint”
Five years ago, in Glastonbury, England, the famous author of ‘Cooking Right for your Astrological Personality’, Margaret Newborn, gathered together a team of skilled dowsers, psychics, crystal workers and fellow astrologers, with the idea of using their skills to make a difference in the Third World.*
The group soon found a base in nearby Street, through Margaret’s connections with the local Shamanic outreach programme. It was there that they formed the Light-working, Iridology and Associated Resonances School. After months of deep work constructing their power cradle, they were officially invited by the Guild of Light Breath Workers to be an affiliated member of the Worldwide Association of Resonant Practitioners (Etheric Division). Registering as a charitable trust was from then on a straightforward process. Continue reading “New Age Solutions for Age Old Problems”
Glastonbury is rightly celebrated as the birthplace of English Christianity.
For just under two millennia, Christians have been arriving, first by boat, then by foot, horse, cart, train, car and bus, to worship in England’s New Jerusalem.
The first one arrived on a fine May morning in A.D. 63- the legendary Joseph of Arimathea. His quest was to plant a Crataegus monogyna cv. biflora on Wearyall Hill and bury a cup or two before leaving again. With those simple, solemn and yet slightly confusing gestures, he laid the foundations for Christianity in England. Continue reading “Avalon/Babylon”
When I was about six years old, my old next door neighbour decided I was ready to learn the ancient secret art of dowsing. He was a prolific dowser for our local council, had been for years, finding water for Yorkshire Dales farmers and homeless northern water sprites. Continue reading “The Ups and Downs of Dowsing”
Cults can be set up quite easily in Glastonbury, each fresh influx of new locals being only too willing to try out yet another new and exciting route to spiritual awakening. This willingness, coupled with the long, straight high street, ideal for mass pilgrimage, make it the ideal base for any would be cult or sect looking to step it up a notch and enter the faith sector of the twenty first century.
