The Sanctuary of Avalon: An Evening with RJ Stewart and Anastacia Nutt

RJ Stewart and his partner Anastacia Nutt are guardians of the Sanctuary of Avalon, a small shrine of silence hidden among tall trees on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, England, on one of the planetary power points long associated with deep spiritual and magical traditions.  Ancient sacred springs flow under the Sanctuary, forming part of Arthuraian and Bardic / Druidic traditions of spiritual alchemy.

Come and join us for an evening talk about the Sanctuary, and the unique potent method of meditation known as The Sphere of Art (from RJ's book of the same name).

RJ Stewart is author of 41 books on spiritual and magical traditions, Celtic myth and legend.  He has composed for feature films, television, and theater, and has recorded many CDs. More about RJ

"We are guardians of the Sanctuary of Avalon, a sanctuary of Silence hidden in the trees on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, England, one of the great planetary power sites. The sacred Red and White springs flow out of the Tor, directly under the Sanctuary.
    The original sanctuary was started in the 1950's by Ronald Heaver and Polly Wood, and drew people from all over the world to come and meditate and receive spiritual inspiration. RJ was given the authority to continue this work, and we now have a steady stream of people coming to the Sanctuary, which is privately held, and not open to the general public. Anyone who has attended workshops can apply to visit by prior appointment.
    Please join us for this new workshop which we believe contains spiritual teachings and methods that are deeply relevant for us all at this time."

The presentation Friday evening will be in the beautiful setting of the Metaphysical Research Society, in an old Denver mansion which is decorated with murals depicting mythic and cosmic scenes. www.mrsdenver.org

Experiencing the Fire Temple of Initiation and Illumination

An Inner Temples Inner Convocation ® workshop with R. J. Stewart, June 11-12th, 2011 at The StarHouse, Boulder.

Directions to The StarHouse

Join us in the beautiful StarHouse, Boulder, Colorado, for Experiencing the Fire Temple. This powerful workshop features meditation, ceremony, and visionary work with the spiritual lineage of the timeless Fire Temple that opens us to personal and transpersonal Initiation and Illumination.

Fire Temple workshops have an alchemical aspect, often preparing essences and substances imbued with spiritual forces, for transformation of both body and consciousness.

This two day workshop is open to new people. One-day attendance is not available.

In the 1950’s the Glastonbury adept A.R. Heaver (Zadok) opened The Sanctuary of Avalon, a silent sanctuary attuned to the inner lineage of the Fire Temple. The declared aims of this spiritual stream were to “counter the threat of nuclear Armageddon”, “enable people to come into direct communion with Divinity for themselves” and “bring healing and spiritual aid for those who are severely ill or dying.” Today, in the 21st century, we continue and evolve these practices in The Sanctuary of Avalon’s new network, on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor in England, and in the USA.

At this time we are focusing on methods of working to rebalance the destructive energies unleashed by nuclear technology, including all facets ranging from spiritual mediation to healing remedies.

The Gate Opening/Lineage of Zadok workshops are an ongoing series of spiritual events, based on new developments and expansions of esoteric material originally imparted to R. J. Stewart by A. R. Heaver (1900-1980). We will experience attunement to the powerful inner spiritual lineage of the Fire Temple, poetically called “Zadok.”

This weekend will include a Consecration Ceremony for those who have attended previous workshops with R.J. or wish to re-affirm a previous consecration. Please email in advance to confirm if you are eligible.

The Gate Opening includes new advances in the Inner Temple Traditions and Inner Convocation® work taught in Britain and the USA from 1989 to the present day.

The cost for the weekend is $220.

Who is R J Stewart?


Robert John (R J) Stewart was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father came from a Gaelic speaking family originally from the Western Highlands. His mother was Welsh, from a Welsh speaking family from the Gower Peninsula in South Wales, with a tradition of singing and playing the Welsh triple-harp. He is known today as a composer, author, and teacher, with 41 books in publication, translated into many languages worldwide. He is widely experienced in theater, film, and television, and is a skilled performer and presenter.

He has written a series of books on Celtic mythology, two books on music and consciousness, edited two editions of historical texts from the 16th and 17th centuries, and published many original stories in anthologies, and in his own books.

R J Stewart's series of books on the Underworld and Faery traditions (which he has restored and presented to the public almost single-handed over the last 20 years) have encouraged many people worldwide to work with these ancestral land-oriented spiritual paths.

From 1980 to 1988 R J worked extensively with the Merlin tradition, writing two original and influential books translating and exploring genuine medieval Merlin texts. These have remained in print for over a decade (now published in one volume as Merlin: the Prophetic Vision and Mystic Life, by Penguin Arkana).

From the 1980s onwards R J also advised on, wrote for, and appeared in, a number of television documentary films on magic, mythology, and history.

R J Stewart has taught workshops and classes in the UK and USA since 1988. These include work with Celtic and classical mythological traditions, the Faery and Underworld traditions, music and consciousness, and a unique original ongoing program of transforming awareness and spiritual vision, called Inner Temple Traditions. Today R J focuses on innovative material, developed out of the foundations of tradition, and continues to write fiction and non-fiction books.
