Glastonbury, England is also the heart chakra of the earth.
The myths associated with Glastonbury Tor are extraordinary. It has been called a magic mountain, a faeries’ glass hill, a spiral castle, a Grail castle, the Land of the Dead, Hades, a Druid initiation centre, an Arthurian hill-fort, a magnetic power-point, a crossroads of leys, a centre for Goddess fertility rituals and celebrations, a converging point for UFOs.
These myths are still very much alive today, although they are constantly being built upon and undergoing change. This is not surprising, given that this 500-foot-high conical hill is a most striking and inspiring landmark – visible at vast distances and yet invisible at certain angles close-by.
If you climb the Tor on a clear day, you will be astonished by the extent of the view: to the north you will see the Mendip Hills together with the city of Wells and its cathedral; to the west the island of Steep Holm in the Bristol Channel; Brent Knoll to the northwest; the Polden and Quantock Hills to the southwest, and the Black mountains of Wales in the far distance; the Hood Monument and Dorset to the south; to the east Alfred’s Tower on the borders of Wiltshire, and Cley Hill – a hill famous for UFO sightings.
