Hi

I'm still new on here but posting here for traffic, I hope that's ok.

In the last 2 years or so I've developed the spiritual healing side of me. Last Friday I finally made it down to Glastonbury, which was a major post life saving bowel surgery goal for me.

Does anyone know of anywhere else in the UK that is either hippy or spiritual please?

Thank you.

Cornwall. More stone circles than you can shake a stick at.

Totnes in Devon has that kind of vibe to me but I'm not sure it's spiritually significant in any way. You'd meet a few like minded people though for sure.

I think a few places in Dorset too. And stone henge of course.

Would second Totnes, the cafes and bookshops often advertise healing groups, meditation groups etc. so you'd find a lot to do down there.

www.megalithic.co.uk photos and listings of stone circles and ancient sites UK and worldwide with directions and more info than you can take in at a glance.

www.goingonretreat.com/ if you're looking to spend some quiet reflective time away from home.

www.hebdenbridge.co.uk/ Similar vibe to Totnes, located in the Pennines.

www.samyeling.org/ I've always fancied visiting this place.

www.findhorn.org/ nice place, read their history, best wholefood shop I know of, on-site apothecary who makes their own range of essential oils etc.

Don't forget to look for Yoga groups, Reiki shares etc. in your own area, check out noticeboards in health food shops, sometimes it's surprising how you don't need to venture far to find what you're looking for smile

Thank you all so much, these are brilliant. Does anyone else have any further ideas?

If you're willing to travel across the pond, there's a place in Co Meath, Ireland called Newgrange smile

How about a festival this summer? You'd love WOMAD or Wilderness, or Green Man in Wales, or plenty of others! Go fo the more spiritual/worldy ones and avoid the crazy drug fuelled ones.

Cornwall! Totnes is fab for healing stuff!

Why is this in AIBU?

Tinkinswood Neolithic burial chamber near Cardiff. Camped there once, sat and meditated on the capstone as the sun rose. Lovely place.

Hebden Bridge used to be all about earth mysteries and healing. It seems to have dwindled a bit but probably worth a Google. I live there and it's not as hippy as it used to be.

Kilmartin, Mid-Argyll, Scotland

YoureSoSly, for traffic I believe. Guess OP's google is broken grin

The Findhorn Foundation in Moray (North of Scotland) www.findhorn.org/

It's a residential community and you can visit some homes on a b&b type basis. Lovely shop and plenty going on no matter which end of the hippy spectrum you are ok!

Avebury.

Tintagel in Cornwall, Stonehenge obviously though there are lots of other less famous standing stones around the UK, St Nectan's Glen in Cornwall

MintyChapstick Tue 07-Jun-16 16:38:08

Is there any need for that araiba? She didn't ask if she was being unreasonable, and honestly what business is it of yours if she does want to to down the alternative lifestyle path?

araiba Tue 07-Jun-16 16:40:56

post in aibu, expect people to tell you, you are being unreasonable

otherwise post in the woo section or whatever is correct

iamEarthymama Tue 07-Jun-16 16:42:36

Did you to Chalice Well, OP?

My favourite place of all
Looking forward to a week in Glasto in July.

There is nowhere like it for me, but try to create that feeling at home

Good luck on your travels 😊

Iona is lovely, so peaceful and other worldly.
