Working with Chalice Well Essences - Our first ever weekend workshop

Friday 19 July to Sunday 21 July 2013

A practical and experiential workshop designed for practitioners, healers and therapists but also open to anyone interested in vibrational essences, who wishes to connect with the healing energies of Chalice Well.

Activities over the weekend include:

Co-creating a special essence to gain an understanding of the Chalice Well Essences approach and philosophy

  • This will take place in the gardens, outside public opening times, sharing the methodology that Chalice Well Essences uses in the creation of our essences

Working with each of the 9 Chalice Well Essences individually and in combination to gain greater understanding of their use and application

  • Using intuitive and creative methods (art/journaling etc.); this exploration will include attuning to the source locations, where each essence was conceived, and connecting with the ally of the essence for personal wisdom and guidance
  • A guided meditation through the 9 essences as a healing journey
  • An exploration of methods of prescribing/intuiting essences for clients/individuals

Learning the story of the Living Sanctuary of Chalice Well, the landscape, the people, the history from the mists of time to the present

  • This will be in the form of a visual presentation and a sharing of archive materials specifically relating to Chalice Well as a place of healing, and the waters in relation to making essences

Exploring the energies and dimensions of the Chalice Well Garden and your personal connection to the spirit of the Well

  • This is a deeper exploration of the spiritual associations, the guardians, nature kingdoms and elemental realm, and the 'etheric template' of the gardens

Learning methods to evaluate the effect and impact of the essences on wellbeing and share insights into research findings

Sharing evidence and methods of collating qualitative research

Friday evening: 7-9pm | Saturday & Sunday: 10am-6pm each day

Friday evening will be a gentle gathering for introduction and attunement. We are aware that some people are likely to be travelling after work on that day, so attendance on the Friday is not essential. However, it offers an opportunity to arrive, connect, share, and meet others on the workshop, and means we can begin in earnest on the Saturday morning.


The workshop is run by members of the Chalice Well Essence Team. Sophie Knock, Natasha Wardle, Muriel Spenceley, Karin Schluter Lonegren, supported by members of the Essence Production Team.
