Glastonbury Yatra

THE GLASTONBURY YATRA

INTO THE AURA OF AVALON

With Harijiwan, Mandev, & Shabadpreet
Saturday April 22 - Thursday April 27, 2023
Glastonbury, England

Glastonbury is the spiritual heart of England and is home to a rich history of magic, myth, and mystery. Known as the entrance to the legendary land of Avalon, the Apple Isle, Glastonbury, and the surrounding area is a hub of spiritual energy and a place where magic still exists. 

Explore this mystical landscape with us for 5 nights and 6 days of sacred adventure. Experience the powerful energy that has drawn spiritual seekers for centuries.  

“There has never ceased to be a Mystery Lodge at Glastonbury. The succession has never failed; there has never been darkness there. The Tor has never lacked its Hermit. There has always been an Upper Chamber within the bounds of the circle of the marshes, where one soul in solitude meditated upon the mysteries. Those who have functioned in this way have kept the channels open by their concentrated thought, leaving the thinnest veil, like a psychic parchment, to protect the power behind it from those that would use it selfishly.”

- DION FORTUNE

THE ISLE OF AVALON, ARTHURIAN LEGEND, & ANCIENT EARTH CURRENTS

Known in Arthurian mythology as the final resting place of King Arthur. It is believed that modern day Glastonbury is the descendent of the mystical land of Avalon, and marks what would have been the entrance to the island.  The energies of Avalon still exist in the area and it remains a place of spiritual renewal and rejuvenation.

The surrounding area of southwestern England is also rich in ancient sites of spiritual and cultural significance creating a vast network of energy that flows across the landscape. In addition to our exploration of Glastonbury we will be taking in several of these incredible places. 

Whether you are a practicing yogi, a meditator, or simply interested in exploring the myth and legends of Avalon, a trip to Glastonbury is a journey you won’t forget. 

What to expect

DAY LONG ADVENUTRES

Each day on a RA MA Yatra is an adventure. These experiences are less a “retreat” and more an expedition. We will be out and about most days visiting sacred sites, enjoying group meals, and catching the local culture and shopping on the way to our next location.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF EXPERIENCE

 In pre-Christian times, this mystical area was once the site of a “College of the Inner Initiates” and a “great center of the Druidic faith.” It has always been a place of spiritual renewal, where successive generations of initiates maintained their connection with inner power through the centuries. With the support of this lineage, we’ll be meditating at Glastonbury’s sacred places, plus day-tripping to the area’s other incredible places of power. 

Community & CONNECTION

Connect with like-minded community RA MA Yatra is all about creating community and connection through meaningful experiences.  Experiences like this are where Yogic Community, Travel Adventure, and Community coincide for unforgettable, once in a life time pilgrimages to the worlds most sacred places.

“It is to this Avalon of the Heart the pilgrims still go – Some in bands, knowing what they seek -Some alone, with the staff of vision in their hands, awaiting what may come to meet them on this holy ground. None go away as they came.”
