Poustinia in Garden of Reflection, Bishop's Palace, Wells
A Poustinia is a solitary place to go for reflection of prayer. Originally found in Russian Orthodoxy, they are now becoming more common in Western Christian spirituality, and can be found in retreat houses and monasteries.
The poustinia at the Bishops Palace LinkExternal link is part of the modern Garden of Reflection, opened in 2013. Inside the poustinia there is a circular seat, and it is open to the skies, with a view of Wells Cathedral on one side.
It is approached through a small birch forest, and is overlooked by a large stone seat ST5545 : Engraved stone seat in Garden of Reflection, Bishop's Palace, Wells. Fascinating and thought-provoking!
