Retreat at Healing Waters Sanctuary Glastonbury
This residential retreat at Healing Waters (Glastonbury, UK)
includes 5 nights accommodation and 2h/day personal healing and teaching with Mylène.
Healing Waters Sanctuary is an Interfaith Spiritual Retreat Centre and B&B that embodies the qualities of Love and Compassion. We are situated on the Sacred Site of Wearyhall Hill and the Saint Michael Ley Line. The powerful energy pervading this beautiful house and the stunning views of Glastonbury Tor and the Somerset Levels make it an immediate choice for anyone wanting to heal themselves or experience a powerful spiritual transformation.
Healing Waters offers a deeply relaxing stay.
Our comfortable rooms are calm and peaceful, infused with the energy of healing and tranquility, each one unique and created with love.
Our rooms are also available for day time rental; ideal for meditation, therapeutic treatments or workshops and events.
We have a fully equipped kitchen with a range of stainless steel saucepans and kitchen implements, including a soup ‘whizzer’ and food blender as well as a juicer. There is also a selection of herbs, spices and oil available. Please be mindful of other guests whilst using the kitchen. We also ask that you don’t bring meat products or alcohol into our house.
We have a dinning table that can seat about eight people in the space at the back of the house and another table in the kitchen. The french windows looking out over the deck and the moors let in a lovely light throughout the day. There are also eating areas outside on the deck:
Behind the house we have a beautiful wooden deck with picnic tables and recliner chairs. Wonderful for sunbathing and relaxing. This vantage point gives you a lovely view across the somerset levels and of Glastonbury Tor. If you come in spring or summer you will get a chance to see our flower garden that surrounds this area as well as up through the front garden.
We have lovely gardens surrounding the Sanctuary with places to sit and relax. We also have a wonderful 6 acre field with the Healing Spring in the Centre and the Community Healing Gardens in the left where we grow lots of organic vegetables for use by the Sanctuary and the community. You are welcome to come and visit them as part of your stay, and to purchase vegetables from us. And if you are lucky you may see deer roaming in the early mornings or some of the other lovely wildlife that live in the field.
Retreat in Somerton, at 'The Book Room' Cottage.
Ideal for a couple
This residential retreat in Somerton includes 4 nights accommodation and 2h/day personal healing and teaching with Mylène.
If your partner does not wish to participate in this retreat he or she is absolutely welcome at no additional cost!
This place is nevertheless conducive to working as a couple: if this is your choice, each partner will receive 8 hours of individual and confidential work. We can either decide on working outside of the 'couple paradigme', or explore what prevents a harmonious relationship with the other. Each one of you will of course have their own "list" of grievances and limiting belief systems or other traumas and stories that need exploring with regards to that goal. You will be completely free to choose what you want to share with the other, or not.
Full of character and adorned with antique furniture, this is a wonderful retreat for a couple and exudes an air of bygone elegance.

Set on the outskirts of Somerton, the ancient capital of Wessex, The Book Room is a Grade II* listed, self-contained wing of the owner’s home, The Old Parsonage. It is believed to have been built on the site of an early Anglo Saxon church, and next to an old tithe barn that was originally attached to Muchelney Abbey, 6 miles away (which is now overseen by English Heritage).
After dissolution of the abbey in 1538, the land passed to Edward Seymour, Earl of Hereford, and was eventually leased by Thomas Preene, a merchant of London. The parsonage house is believed to have been built in 1619 using blue lias stone, and The Book Room still has an original 17th-century hamstone fireplace, original mullion windows and wide, spiral stairs. Guests are welcome to view the original Carolean overmantel in the main house by arrangement, as well as the 17th-century panelling in the parlour. It is interesting to think that the civil war and the nearby battle of Sedgemoor are sure to have been discussed within these walls.
Guests can enjoy the walled garden, relax in the courtyard outside and, if in the mood, wander into the quaint town of Somerton with its shops, pubs and restaurants. There are many places of interest to visit within easy driving distance, including Glastonbury Tor, Clarks Village (retail outlet), Haynes International Motor Museum and the ever-popular Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton.
Also of interest are the cathedral city of Wells with its Bishops Palace, and many nearby historical houses including Montacute House, Forde Abbey and Gardens, and Stourhead, with its magnicient landscaped gardens. You may also like to venture further afield to the Roman and Georgian city of Bath. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
