The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre hosts workshops, courses and events that are influenced by Gnosticism and supports The Glastonbury Rose Chapel in its provision of low-cost services to those in need.

Its goal is to support people on their path of gnosis, or self-knowledge, through the archetypal descent of their Soul and its return to the Divine Child Self through the Sacred Marriage of the divine feminine and sacred masculine within the Self, a process Jung termed ‘Individuation’

We welcome applications from practitioners, speakers or artists who are interested in The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre hosting their relevant workshops, courses or events


The Centre’s teachings are inspired by Gnosticism and the Rose Lineage, including:

  • The shamanic traditions of Ancient Mesopotamia and their worship of the Semitic goddesses Asherah, Inanna, Ishtar and Astarte, associated with the eight year cycle of the planet Venus
  • Esoteric Judaism and Mount Sinai, the Shekinah, King Solomon’s Sophia and Asherah, the Kabbalah’s ‘Tree of Life’ and Astrology
  • Ancient Egypt, the Isis-Osiris Mysteries, Hathor, Sekhmet and Sirius
  • The Ancient Graeco-Roman Goddesses Sophia, Athena-Minerva, Artemis-Diana, Aphrodite-Venus, Cybele and Philosophia
  • The Hermeticists, the Alchemists, Hypnotism and Mesmerism (healing energy)
  • Taoism, Tantra, Kundalini and the Chakras
  • Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, the Black Madonna, the Gnostic Goddesses and the Early Christian Gnostics
  • The Cathars, the Templars and the Freemasons
  • The Tarot, the Arthurian Grail, the Celtic Grail, the Wheel of the Year and the Sacred Marriage
  • Jung, Depth Psychology and the Path of Individuation
  • I have just attended one of Annabel's Rose Lineage workshops and it was wonderful, powerful and amazing! I journeyed with the Gnostic Goddesses and received profound information. I brought back pieces of myself that I did not even know were missing. Thank you, Annabel, for your integrity and beauty, and the beautiful Chapel that provides for these types of transformative experiences.Susan Mare, The Rose Lineage Workshop
  • I circled the five weekends of The Path of the Gnostic Goddess with the wise and beautiful Annabel. She wove a rich and lovely tapestry of academic teaching, outdoor ritual, inner journeying and creativity. We made collages, painted pictures, wove threads, chanted, shared and retold our stories. We giggled, laughed and cried. It was a cleansing of any old wounds still needing attention and a re-creating of an ancient Gnostic lineage within and around us. Thank you women of the circle and especially dear Annabel.

  • I have just completed the second year of Annabel's Priestess of Sophia-Magdalene training. As well as receiving informative teaching sessions, we went out together on the land in and around Avalon so we could really feel the sacredness of place. We used crafting, guided meditations and ceremony to increase our spiritual connection, deepening too our connection to each other. I cannot recommend this training, or Annabel's skilful and sensitive teaching, highly enough.Lorraine Pickles, The Path of Sophia-Magdalene


Our word ‘philosophy’ comes from the ancient Greek word ‘philosophia’ meaning ‘a love of wisdom’, Sophia being the Greek and Gnostic Goddess of Wisdom. Philosophia is the term I use for all my teachings I share on Gnosticism and the Rose Lineage.
