Troubadours and Templars, Monks and Minstrels, Heretics and Cathars … The southern French Pyrenees in the early Middle Ages were a hotbed for a new movement: the rise of the feminine, the grail, music and healing rather than war, inner spirituality rather than imposed religion. It was a rich revival of stories, courtly love and exchange between diverse cultures. The Church put an abrupt end to this with the Albigensian Crusade. The last Cathars were burned at the stake in 1244 at the foot of the Montsegur castle. According to a legend, a troubadour cried out at that time,  ‘In 700 years the laurel will bloom again…’
In 1944, three men – including the Rosicrucian Antonin Gadal – returned to the foot of Montsegur and lit the fire again. Not the destructive fire, but the sacred, inner fire. Since then, the memory of the Cathars, Mary Magdalene, the Grail, the Sacred Feminine and the Inner Christ has been revived. The ancient knowledge is flourishing again.
It is in this place that we gather for a week at the end of July, to delve once again into the mystery of the Grail, to walk the ancient path of the Cathars and connect the knowledge of the sacred feminine and masculine, and to open the mystical heart.
If you feel like joining us, you’re most welcome!

The call of the great mother

Listen to The Call of the Great Mother and join us on a quest to another future.
In 2021 we travelled from Sinai to Schotland. A magical journey that ended with a meditation for the Earth with thousands of people. Read the story of our journey, that is both a personal quest as well as a glimpse into the broader story of our humanity. How do we survive on a planet that is warning us that things are getting out of hand? 

This story was also the prelude to the gathering in Sinai on November 8th, 2022.




During our journeys to sacred places all over the world we received more than 500 messages. Pieces of wisdom that give us a broader insight in our past, present and future. Look at the worldmap, pick a country and read all the messages.
