  • It is hard to capture in words the depths and heights of the experience of Annabel’s Mary & Michael Pilgrimage. The Priestesses are returning! Mother Mary and the Great Mother in all her forms are calling us back, calling us to remember, gather and move together along the dragon lines to Her sacred places to bless and be blessed. This Pilgrimage is, very simply, a totally authentic opportunity to come together with sincere practitioners to both receive love, presence and healing, and to offer out the same, within a container of true High Magic.

    Lisa Brughera, Mary & Michael Pilgrimage

The Mary & Michael Dragon Lines

The Mary & Michael Dragon Lines weave their way through the lands of Brigit’s Isles like two serpents, forging a sacred pathway from Norfolk to Cornwall, uniting together at certain vortexes in their Sacred Marriage of the Divine Feminine and Masculine.

I have lived on the Mary & Michael Dragon lines my whole life, firstly in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and then in Glastonbury-Avalon and the Summerlands since 2009, where The Avalon Rose Chapel® is situated on one of the ancient islands in the Great Lake of Avalon, with the Michael line running straight through it.

I became aware of the Mary & Michael alignment when I was training to be a Priestess of Avalon with the Glastonbury Goddess Temple in 2001, and read The Old Straight Track by Alfred Watkins (1925) as well as The Sun And The Serpent and The Dance of the Dragon by Paul Broadhurst and Hamish Miller, who track the alignment.

I’ve spent the last two decades making personal pilgrimages to all the sacred sites that these dragon lines traverse, deep into the valleys of sacred spring waters where churches to Mary are sited upon sanctuaries to the ancient Fish & Mermaid Goddess, and high up onto the sacred mounds and hill tops where churches to Michael were founded upon Beacon Hills originally dedicated to the Sun God.

The Avalon Rose Chapel® is situated on the Isle of the Dog in the Glastonbury Zodiac, beneath the Dog Star Sirius, and close to Burrow Mump where the Mary and Michael dragon lines meet in their Sacred Marriage.

“The St. Michael Line of traditional dragons sites in south-west England (…) is remarkable for its length and accuracy. It appears to be set between two prominent Somerset hills, both dedicated to St. Michael with ruined churches on their summit. These two hills are Glastonbury Tor and ‘The Mump’ at Burrowbridge some ten miles to the south-west. Both these hills appear to have been artificially shaped so that their axis align with each other, and their orientation, 27 degrees north of east, can be read off a large Ordnance Survey sheet.” John Michell, The View Over Atlantis

It is here that we will start our sacred 7-day Pilgrimage as I guide you on a powerfully transformative, transpersonal journey with the mythos, deities and energies of the Avalon Rose Lineage, grounded and rooted in these sacred lands of my birth.

Pilgrimage Itinerary

I have designed the Pilgrimage as a deeply transpersonal journey into the mythos of the Avalon Rose Lineage, grounded in the sacred lands of Glastonbury-Avalon and the Summerlands, and co-facilitated by some of my closest friends and co-facilitators – Laura ‘Red Witch’ Daligan, Nalini Blossom, Sophie Pullinger, Lydia Lyte & Tor Webster.

This is a completely unique pilgrimage founded in my 30 years of lived, embodied experience of these lands, since I first came to the Summerlands aged 19, spending my holidays in the next door village to where I now live, after which I began coming regularly to Glastonbury-Avalon from 2000 to train as a Priestess of Avalon and work at The Glastonbury Goddess Conference, journeying up and down the Mary & Michael Dragon Lines from my homes in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, until I eventually moved here in 2009 and founded The Avalon Rose Chapel® in 2018.

Nalini Blossom

Nalini is a close friend and Rose Priestess Sister, with whom I have co-facilitated ceremonies and performed since 2018, including singing on her track ‘Circle of Women’ produced by Craig Pruess with my daughter Sophia, embodying the energies of the Mother and Daughter in the lyrics ‘May all mothers know that they are loved. And may all sisters know that they are strong. And may all daughters know that they are worthy/beautiful/powerful’.

Nalini is an internationally renowned singer-songwriter, sound healer, ceremonialist & workshop facilitator. Over the last 20 years, she has pilgrimaged to sacred sites around the world, studying with indigenous wisdom keepers & song carriers. From the Amazon Jungle, to the High Andes, to the temples of Egypt, India and Central America, Nalini weaves ancestral threads into a unique tapestry of song, invocation and ceremony. Her voice has been described as ‘an ancient and powerful transmission’, transporting listeners through the veils into timeless realms; her songs are deep prayers of praise & longing.

Following a near death experience in Mexico in 2004, Nalini’s voice opened up as a conduit of healing energy. She subsequently realised her vocation as a guardian of the sacred feminine mysteries. She taught herself guitar and started to receive many songs. She went on to release her ‘Magdalene Flame’ album and co-founded the band ‘Sacred Sound Collective’. Nalini has also collaborated with various electronica producers, performing live at the Glastonbury Festival with Kaya Project, co-creating tracks with downtempo producer Mose in Guatemala and two EPs with Alunawachuma and Jairamji. She is currently working on recording projects in the UK with award winning music producers Craig Pruess (Sacred Chants of Shiva) and Gerry Diver. Her most well-known songs ‘Queen of Peace’, ‘Circle of Women’ and ‘Water Blessing Song’ are cherished in prayer circles around the world.

Nalini is currently based in Glastonbury, England, where she is a sound healer with ‘Avalon Alchemy of Sound’ at the Goddess Temple. It was here that she birthed her signature workshop ‘Song of the Womb‘, which she shares alongside her ceremonial concerts across the globe. She is a mentor in ‘Womb Awakening’ with the Fountain of Life Academy of Dr Azra and Seren Bertrand, with whom she apprenticed in Avalon and on Big Island, Hawaii. Nalini is especially passionate about empowering women to reclaim their authentic voice, womb wisdom & embodied connection to Mother Earth.

Nalini’s song ‘Queen of Peace’ features in The Avalon Rose Chapel® Mary & Michael Pilgrimage promo film and can be purchased via this LINK.

Laura and I have been close friends since she began reading my Tarot in 2014, and as witchy sisters of magic and mischief, have shared countless pilgrimages, adventures, walks, fire rituals and ceremonies in Glastonbury, the Summerlands and beyond.

I’m Laura and I have a passion for creativity, magic and the wild wonder of everyday life. I am an internationally renowned Mystic, Artist, Spiritual Teacher, Fire Dancer, Musician, Animal Lover & Advocate. I reside near Glastonbury, where I am continually inspired by the deep magic of the land.

From starting out as one of the founding members of Sky’s Psychic TV, I have appeared on various TV Channels including BBC, ITV, C4 and MTV. I have been featured in a plethora of Magazines and have enjoyed writing columns for FAE Magazine, Chat, The Magical Times and Spellcraft. I have provided Tarot consultations for many corporate events and read for politicians, celebrities and big business owners.

My spiritual background is rooted in Paganism, Tarot, Wicca and Shamanic training. From a wealth of magical and personal experience, I have created a range of innovative and empowering courses which I teach both online and in-person.

I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts with a BA(Hons) Illustration, and since then my mythic and visionary art has appeared in books, magazines & exhibitions. I have become well-known for creating totem Shamanic drums, and painting larger-than-life canvases featuring Deities, Power Animals & Dragons.

As one of the original ‘YouTube Witches’, my popular and friendly channel has gained a global following and been growing for over a decade now.

I am studying a Masters Degree in Viking Studies, and I have recently been a consultant on a couple of exhibitions for the British Museum, including the hugely popular ‘World of Stonehenge’ Exhibition.

I love what I do, my heart ignites each thread of my work.

Tor Webster

I’ve been friends with Tor since 2018 when I opened The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre & Chapel, where he facilitated some powerful Gnostic channelling circles.

Tor Webster, a local Glastonbury man, created the company ‘Tor’s Tour of the Tor’ in 2011 and it has gone from strength to strength, as has his involvement in putting Glastonbury firmly on the tourist map of England. He has been interviewed by BBC TV, BBC Radio, Russian TV,  Japanese TV, Norwegian and local documentary productions, as well as having been featured in German National Geographic Magazine and The World National Geographic TV Channel.

Tor moved to Glastonbury in 2001. His father and Danish mother (hence having the very apt name from birth of Tor) had already been living there for a few years. Tor’s tour of the Tor has also become top of the list of Glastonbury Tourist activities on the Trip Advisor website.

Tor is an independent filmmaker. In 2009, he completed a feature length documentary called the ‘Rainbow Serpent Project,’ which is about his pilgrimage to the earth chakra sites spread across the world.

Tor is a medium and healer, who works with the vibration of ‘Love’, and has been studying the ancient traditions of the early Celtic Christians called ‘The Way’ for over 25 years.
