Hugging has been used for millennia across the world as a greeting, a farewell or affirmation between loved ones as well as providing comfort and being a social easing tool. Whether it’s a three second café cheek to cheek, a mutual shoulder grasp, an art gallery air hug or an uncomfortable back slap, hugging can be redesigned at will to fit any situation.

Welcome to the Isle of Avalon.
In June, after every, nearly yearly Glastonbury festival, hundreds of tired, muddied and substance-modified teenagers appear on the benches of Glastonbury high street, wearing their festival hats, ready for the next open-ended summer adventure.
Meanwhile, the Glastafarians, with their non-festival hats, sit sagely outside the many cafés, talking about energy, organic food and UFOs, living the dream. Watching them from a distance, as they sip on herbal tea and chain-smoke cigarettes, their lives look perfect. Continue reading “Glastonbury and the Glastafarians”
Arthur. His name still rings out clear and true across the Somerset Levels, like the sound effect slide of a sword from a stone. A noble and kind king, he ruled Wales, Cornwall, Somerset, North Cadbury, the whole of England or somewhere, anyway, for a pretty long time, way back when dragons roamed the woods and there weren’t any motorways.

A Portrait of Bert Kwa
This article contains descriptions of Reiki and imagery that some may find disturbing.
In all the years since Reiki was rediscovered, it has only ever got really out of hands once, on that island energy hot-spot we all know as Hawaii.
Bert Kwa, the infamous Reiki Killer, was, up until recently, the only serial killer ever to have emerged out of Hawaii. A Wild Energy Embodier, Master of Multiple Modalities, he briefly held the mystical state of Reiki 4, coming into his power without training at the age of twenty three. Tragically, Reiki 4 chose to manifest in a sociopath, ill-suited to using such a precious gift for good. Continue reading “Reiki Killer”
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”
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”
