Companions' Day 2013
Saturday 1 June
10am to 3.30pm
One of the benefits of becoming a Companion of Chalice Well is our annual Companions' Day, a day when the gardens are open exclusively to Companions.
This year we are celebrating the life of Alice Buckton.
In the morning we have two speakers, the first sharing their insight into the life of Alice Buckton. The second will talk on Alice Buckton's spiritual legacy.
In the afternoon we are hosting a recital of Alice's work.
'The people who visit the garden and the Well today are probably unaware of the courage and vision of a pioneering spirit who moved from London in 1913 to dedicate herself to Chalice Well for over thirty years.
Alice Mary Buckton was born on 9th March 1867 at the threshold of a new era. This was a time of change and Alice added her own voice to those who sought social and political reform, including the emancipation of women, and a mystical, personally-tailored spirituality; guided by inner revelation. The new spirituality uncovered common fround between eastern and western religions, blended Anglicanism with Celtic Christianity, pursued psychic studies and sought to express private spiritual realisation through service to others'
