From Starr, a practising Druid who has contacted us:
“The historical story, from a very old source, 17th century, says of a large tunnel leading into the Tor which had a large cave in it, with two pools of natural spring water that flowed underground to the Chalice Well. It is said the cave was part of a druidic initiation, a journey into the dark and the inner self. There were also steps leading down from the top into the cave, which was rediscovered, then promptly covered up (for reasons unknown).
“As for the cave under the Tor, it was bricked up by the local water board and [only re-opened recently – now the ‘White Spring’.] A local who was very interested in the history of the site relayed to me that in the 60s his dad was part of a project to hollow out the Tor further and place a water tower inside, to harness the natural spring, thereby hiding a potential eyesore, though ruining the cave and profiting at the same time. This same person showed me one of the mentioned tunnels which still lead into the Abbey from outside of town. The bit I walked was, or at least seemed to be, several hundred yards.”

More darkroom retreat centers
Guatemala (Kaivalya) I built the first darkroom in San Marcos, ran it, sold it. It got resold to these folks. They remodeled. They then built their own facility and moved out of the one I built. They seem cool and reliable. Fairly cheap.
Mexico (Hridaya) A friend retreated there and it went fine. Cheap.
Italy (Darkroom 432Hz) High tech (interesting idea behind it) but gourmet and with shared spaces, so unhygienic and expensive. Maybe they would support a hygienic retreat. I don’t know them. Could be ok.
(Zivica) Slovakia Seems ok. Friendly, serious people. Medium price.
(Lyfjabergt) Sweden Seems ok. Friendly guy. Medium-high price.
