Event description

Description

  • Would you love to be free of self-doubt, self-judgment, regret and fear?
  • Could your relationships be more loving, not controlling or constrained?
  • Is your Mother-Daughter dynamic all that you long for?
  • Have you stepped into your wisdom and sacred feminine power?

Many of us have been sharing mother and daughter stories. Many of us are moving into the Wise woman, Sacred Feminine time of our lives. This is the very theme of the Seven-Day Retreat with Persephone, Demeter, Mary Magdalene as the core Archetypes, to enable us to connect with our lost innocence, with our courageous fierce or distant mother, with growing wisdom and the power of the Ancient Feminine Mysteries. All in a Templar Hamlet in the magnificent setting of the Haute Vallee de l'Aude.

  • PLEASE NOTE Vegetarian half-board, peaceful and comfortable farmhouse accommodation 286 €uros is payable separately at the venue. Open to all women. Using The Work of Byron Katie, Voice Dialogue, Constellations and Creativity. There's a lovely Yoga teacher Noa Mofaz too for morning and evening sessions. 12 ITW credits.
  • All you need is an open mind, & a notebook! & any photos of yourself as child, as mother, as wanderer or priestess - any images connected with these themes.

Our schedule may look like this (below) and will be adapted to meet your needs as they arise - you may want to go to the bustling Sunday market, to doze in the flowers of the meadow, hike, or swim in the freshwaters of the lakes and rivers. There is a hot springs spa where you can book a massage, a castle that sells the local honey, an organic goats cheese farm down the valley. You'll have plenty of time for solitude, silence, journalling, partner work and rest, so vital for the processing of mythic and personal material.

  • 7.00-8.10 Yoga/Meditation
  • 8.30-9.30 Breakfast
  • 9.45 - 1.15 Workshop
  • 1.30 Lunch
  • break
  • 6.00 - 7.30 Group gathering to share, and/or yoga
  • 8.00 dinner

Food is delicious vegetarian, mostly organic, much home-grown. Herb teas, coffee, wine at dinner all included. We share and prepare food for lunch - usually about €10 pp covers the week.

NB If you introduce another participant, or you have attended a previous event with me, you'll receive a €70 refund on the tuition. You can come together with your mother or your daughter, or a female friend or partner, or solo.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

How to get there:
Nearest airports to Couiza are Carcassonne (34km), Perpignan (60km) and Toulouse (100km). Ryanair flies to Carcassonne and Perpignan, Flybe and AirFrance to Perpignan, Easyjet to Toulouse. Hertz do good car hire rates through the Ryanair website. You can also travel Eurostar to Lille, then TGV to Montpellier or Narbonne, then regular (Corail Teos or Thalys) to Carcassonne, then train or bus via Limoux to Couiza-Montazels, then call for a taxi or to be collected. I personally love the train journey through France.

We can put together a list for car or taxi-share.

Note: Alison Judge runs a useful minibus shuttle service from Carcassonne airport or rail station to the Haute Vallée de l'Aude (Carcassonne — Limoux — Alet-les-Bains — Couiza — Esperaza — Quillan) matching the round trips to the day's flights. Contact + 33 (O)468 20 15 54 or + 33 (0)668 72 05 01. Or book on the website at Aerobus Haute Vallée: http://www.aerobus-hautevallee.com She is usually able to divert via Lavaldieu for a few extra Euros, and her charges are really reasonable.

For drivers: Hertz seems to offer the best deals if you book through the Ryanair website (you don’t have to have booked a flight). Find the route on your map from Couiza to Rennes-le-Chateau (you go through Couiza centre and it is a sharp little turn up to the left opposite a sort of large villa with trees). Up the twisty hill, 2 or 3 km, you'll see Rennes le Ch on your right on top of the hill. Turn leftish, Not sharp left (actually you are going straight on). Signed to Rennes-les-Bains. Continue along this road over the plateau, through a cluster of houses, past a farm on your left and right, (below the limestone ridge that juts out), and there you'll see a couple of large wooden buildings, and the entrance to Lavaldieu left fork. If you go down the steep hill, you've gone too far.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
