Cornish Holy Well Trails 2017
Get closer to nature and feel the spirit and power of place when you visit holy wells and sacred springs. These wonderful places are a direct link with our ancestors who venerated the water source which became central to their rituals and marking important occasions. You may already feel this connection when you spend quiet time at the holy wells or listening to the flow of the springs tucked away deep in the countryside.
Joining us on a Cornish Holy Well Trail will give you the opportunity to learn about the history and Cornish Saint associated with each well and make a connection with what each place means to you.
You can also choose to be guided through a dedicated ritual or meditation or make you own Cornish Holy Well Environmental Essence capturing your experience, using dowsing and intuition, in a bottle to take home at one of the holy wells or springs by arrangement. Or take a dedicated visit to one site.
You will get a map of our route and a handbook with information about the history and ritual and how to make a flower and environmental essence if you have chosen to add this to your experience. The picture above is of Alsia Well deep in the countryside of West Cornwall.
Cornish Holy Well Trails take place throughout Cornwall focusing on a few wells in the same local area.
Trails will take place in an around the Roseland Peninsula, West Cornwall, Camborne, Liskeard and Launceston.
For example you could explore three very different wells in the countryside of West Cornwall. From the pagan wells of Alsia thought to be associated with the goddess of fertility; Sancreed Well, where descending the steps down into the earth may be interpreted by some people as a feeling of connection with other worlds. Visiting St. Madern's Well and oratory following pilgrims footsteps in the saints' tradition.
