Please note that except in very unusual circumstances the Email training is only open to people living outside the UK  – also do ensure you have read the full course description: you need to be able to come to Glastonbury three times during the training year.

As with the Glastonbury Priestess of Avalon Training course the work of Correspondence students is focused around the eight seasonal festivals of the Goddess, as well as observing the phases of the New Moon and Full Moons of the year.

Course fee Payments

Tuition fees for the email correspondence course are similar to those for attending the full course in Glastonbury. On the email course in addition to spending nine days in Glastonbury – more than half the time spent in the full course, email students also receive one to one feedback, tutorials and attention, where full course students receive group tuition and support.

The full tuition fee for the Email Correspondence Course First Spiral is £1,060, which can be paid in full at the beginning of the course or by £100 deposit and 8 monthly instalments. This fee includes all tuition for eight sessions during the first year, all assignments, homework, feedback and telephone tutorials plus three three-day non-residential teaching sessions in Glastonbury. It does not include the costs of telephone calls, travel, accommodation, food or insurance.

Please note that to ensure your place on the course the non-refundable deposit of £100 must be paid within four weeks of acceptance by the tutor. If you have applied within four weeks of the course start date your deposit must be received by 15 October 2021 at the latest, or by return if the tutor’s acceptance is after this date.

The full fee of £1,060 can be paid by cheque payable to Glastonbury Goddess Temple or in a one off payment directly into our bank account. Bank details will be sent you on request, or contact us for more information or to request an invoice.

Alternatively, fees can be paid by instalments with your non-refundable deposit paid as above, and then by 8 monthly instalments, which are payable by standing order or Paypal subscription starting on 1st November 2021 until the final instalment, due 1 June 2022.

Including the £40 admin fee to cover bank and Paypal costs, each instalment will be £125.00.

Signed Terms & Conditions are an integral part of the course application process and should also be received by us within four weeks of your receiving confirmation of acceptance on the course.
