About this Event

Awesome awesome place, I couldn’t recommend it enough I still feel like I visited some kind of profoundly divine & protective other world when I went there with you -Beverley S.K

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. Many are anxious about the disturbances in society and in the climate. The Greek myth of Persephone the Innocent abducted to the Underworld, and her mother Demeter in her betrayal and grief cursing the harvests, rings truer now than ever.

Mary Magdalene epitomises the third Archetype of the Feminine maligned, dismissed and degraded; there is much evidence that she travelled and taught in this area, where there are springs and caves and monuments dedicated to her, for us to visit, and many local histories and books written about the Holy Grail, San Graal, Sang Réal. Evidence is that she was a high Priestess, Rabbi, in the lineage of ancient Feminine Mysteries. This is a non-religious retreat.

Our world, our planet, our Mother Earth is calling out for us to come forward in our clarity creativity and power now.

This is our theme on the Seven-Day Retreat. Persephone, Demeter, and Mary Magdalene are our core Archetypes, to enable us to connect with our lost Innocence, with our courageous, fierce, loving or distant Mother, with the growing wisdom and the power of the Ancient Feminine Mysteries. All in a comfortably restored mediaeval Templar Hamlet in the magnificent setting of the Haute Vallee de l'Aude, close by the legendary Rennes-le-Chateau. Lavaldieu: Browse the venue and area

  • • Are you the young Innocent? At some point did you lose your Innocence? Did you have to grow up? Have you stepped into your wisdom and sacred Feminine power?
  • • What is your experience of being or not being a Mother? How do you/did you experience your own Mother? As open, loving and fulfilled, or frustrated, critical, overworked, interfering? Were you betrayed?
  • • Would you love to be free of self-doubt, self-judgment, regret and fear?
  • • Do you wish you were more confident, spontaneous, balanced and relaxed in your family, workmates, friends, partnerships?
  • • And to be more loving, not controlling or constrained by fear or indecision, but in your full dynamism, generosity and creativity?
  • • All of this will come with ease once you step into this journey, and you'll return home with a new freedom, a spring in your step, and Love in your heart.

We will be using the simple, powerful processes of The Work of Byron Katie, Scroll down to find the entry for this retreat, Voice Dialogue, Family Constellations, Somatic Awareness and Creativity. Meditations and movement in morning/evening sessions. 12 ITW credits.

All you need is an open mind, & a notebook. Plus if you have any photos of yourself as child, as mother, as wanderer or priestess and any images that will enrich your understanding of these themes.

Useful Info:

 Afternoon your own time, to relax, do assignments - pair or solo work. It's likely that you'll be excited to journal and deepen your work . You can doze in the flowers of the meadow, hike up the nearby ridge and survey the all-round vista from the Pyrenees to Rennes-le-Chateau; go shopping in local markets, visit one of the dramatic Templar castles, or swim in the freshwaters of the lakes and rivers, hang out with the horses, walk the woods and hills, or just chill out. 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, time in nature, partner work and rest, all essential for the processing of mythic and personal material. Bring your binoculars for watching the Egyptian Vultures, Short toed Eagles, Buzzards, and more, cruising the rocky outcrops. Butterflies of marvellous size and colour flap around..I saw a Hummingbird Moth too on the vine.

It's likely we will do an outing to one of the special sites during the week, so a bit of pocket money will be useful. Otherwise all you need to do is book your travel- and bearing in mind the challenges we face with airtravel, I recommend the much more comfortable, less stressful Eurostar-TGV-local train route.

Car hire is useful and we can recommend Europcar, Thrifty, Hertz - compare prices - probably good to book early. We also recommend car sharing and will do group emails or WhatsApp closer to the time. You might also travel by car from UK and make the (2-day) trip part of your Heroine's Journey!

Food is delicious and freshly-cooked vegetarian, mostly organic, much home-grown.  Herb teas, coffee, wine at dinner all included. 

We buy and share food for yummy lunch - approx €10 for the week.
