How can you prove something that exists within its own framework entirely beyond the limited boundaries of materialistic science etc ?
You can't. That's why these things are personal beliefs rather than fact.

"Within its own terms"? Seriously... this is almost exactly what Christians say about Jesus. "He must exist, because I have experienced him. I can prove he exists, because if you invite him into your life, you will experience him too".

If you can't empirically prove something, it isn't a fact - it's a belief.

Glastonbury is a chakra in this respect, as it opens and helps develop individual spiritual energetic progression for those who want to work with its existing extremey powerful energy force.

I disagree. Having lived here for the best part of 20 years, my experience of Glastonbury has been quite the opposite. I've lost count of the number of druids, priestesses and pilgrims of various spiritual persuasions who spout similar stuff about the place, and turn out to be thieves, bullies and violent misogynists (I'm not suggesting that this applies to you).

You obviously met the wrong people. There are bullshitters and no good types in every field of human existence. They're easily spotted in this particular context and easily ignored and avoided.
