About this workshop: 

Glastonbury Zodiac Milky Way Pilgrimage: 1st - 3rd Sept 2023

Led by Astrologer & Pilgrim Guide John Wadsworth


This is a unique two-day pilgrimage following the Milky Way path across the Glastonbury Zodiac.  This pilgrimage route, which runs from Lamyatt Beacon (near Bruton) to High Ham (near Langport).  It follows the Milky Way path as it maps from the night sky onto the landscape of the Glastonbury Zodiac, and was originally discovered by Anthony Thorley & Celia Gunn.  John has been leading the pilgrimage since 2014.

The pilgrimage involves two days of walking, and we will have a 2-night camp set up at Avalon Permaculture Gardens in Butleigh, gathering there on Fri 1st Sept where we will prepare ourselves for the walk and share delicious food together before taking transport to the start of the walk on Saturday morning.  Our camp is at the halfway point of the route, so we will arrive early evening on Saturday to be met with dinner and will share stories around the campfire!

Places are limited, and there is already a lot of interest, so if you would like to take part in this very unique and transformational journey on the Milky Way path of Somerset's enchanted zodiac landscape temple of the stars, please sign up here with a deposit payment.

About John Wadsworth
Astrologer & Pilgrim Guide

My love of astrology began in 1990, following a profound experience of communion with the night sky, which opened my mind to the poetry of the cosmos and radically altered my worldview. Then, after an intense period of study in my early twenties, I am became a full time professional astrologer, and I have been running a busy consulting practice now for over 25 years.
