Annabel Du Boulay Rose Goddess Retreat 2019


27-28 July 2019

I look forward to journeying with you

Annabel Du Boulay Signature


The Rose Goddess Retreat is an opportunity to journey with the ancient goddesses and myths of the Rose Lineage on the sacred Isle of Avalon

♥   The Rose Goddess Retreat is a non-residential retreat held on the weekend before the Goddess Conference in Glastonbury so that those of you who are travelling from abroad can join us

♥   This is one of two Rose Retreats I hold at the Gnostic Chapel each year where I guide you on a journey with the goddesses of the Rose Lineage on this ancient land woven with their herstories and energies

♥   It is also the perfect way for those of you who are interested in joining my Priestess of Sophia-Magdalene Training (In-Person or Online) to experience how I work

♥   Priority is given to those who have already booked onto my Priestess of Sophia-Magdalene ONLINE training so that you can visit the sacred sites of the Rose Goddess in Glastonbury before the course begins on 23 August 2019

♥   We will journey together in circle using transpersonal and shamanic techniques such as drum journeys, creative expression and sacred ritual both in the Gnostic Chapel dedicated to them and on the Isle of Avalon

♥   I will guide you on pilgrimage to the sacred sites associated with the five Rose Goddesses who we journey with on The Path of the Gnostic Goddess, the first year of my Priestess of Sophia-Magdalene Training – Eve (Maiden), Magdalene (Lover), Mary (Mother), Lilith (Crone) and Sophia (Wisdom)

♥   Spaces are limited to 12 and Lammas is a very busy time in Glastonbury so please book your place and accommodation as soon as possible to avoid disappointment

“It is such a privilege to be able to receive Annabel’s profound wisdom, teaching and guidance which comes from a centre of pure love, held in a safe and nurturing environment. She has created such a sense of peace and serenity in a beautiful sacred space. To sit in circle with Annabel and the others, sharing our life stories and supporting one another is an absolute honour. Thank you, Annabel, with love and gratitude, for the gift of the Gnostic Centre and Chapel and its teachings. It is just what I was wishing for and these workshops are such life-changing and transformative experiences.”

“I have just attended one of Annabel’s Gnostic workshops and it was wonderful, powerful and amazing! I have known Annabel for many years and because she always holds space with such love and strength, it allows for a very deep inner journey. I journeyed with the Gnostic deities 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 new Chapel that provides for these types of transformative experiences.”

As a Rose Lineage Expert and Priestess of Sophia-Magdalene, I have been following a Gnostic path for over 25 years. Launching The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre & Chapel on Beltane 2018 was the culmination of my life’s journey with Gnosticism through the union of my expert knowledge with my own path of gnosis, or ‘individuation’, through the repeated descent and rebirth of my Soul:

   as a child with my grandfather, Master of a Masonic Lodge, who inspired my fascination with the Ancient Egyptian mysteries and my Gnostic bloodline

   in my early twenties through my devotion to Mother Mary and the Black Madonna whilst living in Southern Italy

  studying for my MSc and MPhil degrees, specialising in the Rose Lineage and Feminine Divine within Paganism (Goddess Thealogy) and Gnosticism (Feminist Theology)

  my initiation onto the path of Sophia-Magdalene in 1999 through the birth of my daughter Sophia-Mary with a life-threatening syndrome and multiple disabilities, requiring life-saving surgery at birth and a further 11 operations, which led me repeatedly on the Gnostic descent of the soul into the cave of the Black Goddess and my rebirth back into the light of Sophia

  my priestess path on the sacred Isle of Avalon, Glastonbury since 2000, working with the Rose Lineage energies of Sophia, Magdalene, Yeshua, Mary, Archangel Michael and Brigit, as well as the Celtic deities as Priestess of Avalon

  the 9 year cycle of writing and publication in 2009 of my Gnostic novel The Serpent’s Tale, set in the village of Santa Sofia in sixteenth century Italy at the time of the witch-burnings

  my pilgrimages to Mount Sinai on my 35th birthday in 2007 and on my 40th birthday in 2012

  the birth of my severely disabled son Zac in 2009, 2 years to the exact date and hour that I arrived at the summit of Mount Sinai in 2007

  my initiation into a further 9 year cycle of repeated descent and rebirth through nursing Zac on the bridge between life and death, including resuscitating him several times a day for months

  the launch in 2018 of The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre & Chapel, marking the end of the sacred 19 year cycle from my daughter Sophia Mary’s birth and the 9 year cycle from my son Zac’s birth

  I know and trust that all the challenges my children and I have survived have led me to this point where I now have the strength, wisdom and compassion to birth The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre and Chapel; to be conscious of leading from a place of truth, humility and integrity; and to use all the gifts I have gained from my journey with Sophia-Magdalene to guide others on their path of gnosis.

“I recently took part in Annabel’s Gnostic Workshop and had an absolutely wonderful experience. What I loved most was the welcome balance of so many powerful aspects. Annabel is a scholar of Gnostic wisdom and this was clear in her fascinating presentation. I enjoyed learning so much about the Gnostic deities, but we also had deep and beautiful meditations which have given me lots of food for thought! It was a truly educational and healing workshop…I can’t wait for more!
