Earth Festival: Resting | Celebration & Meditation
October 31 @ 10:00 am - 9:30 pm£2.30 – £5.10
The light is departing and nature is shedding. Life prepares to release and let go into a time of rest, stillness and dreaming.
FREE ADMISSION to the gardens between 10 am & 12 pm
Standard admission from 12 pm | Companions FREE
Refreshments on sale between 10 am and 1:30 pm and 4:30 – 8:30 pm
We gather at the well head at midday for meditation, until 12.30.
At 12.30 we invite you to join us around the fire on the lower lawn for an informal Conversation Café. We hope this is an opportunity for people to meet, share ideas, thoughts and beliefs and increase connection through understanding.
Evening Meditative Gathering | 7 pm
The gardens are open from 10 am until 9:30 pm (last entry at 8:30 pm). We hold a further meditation at 7 pm. During the evening the gardens will be lit by torch and candlelight and filled with the gentle sound of harps and singing bowls being played in various locations around the garden, making for a reflective and contemplative evening.
Chalice Well is a World Peace Garden. A place of peace and tranquillity for those of all faiths and none. These festivals are grounded in common principles; welcome, stillness, silence, reflection, grace, communion, community, relationship, celebration, gratitude and blessing. That people gather together, not in a formalised building or structure of worship, but in a beautiful garden, allows a shared acknowledgement of the sacred and divine that transcends borders and differences.
