LIGHT THE BEACONS

Montségur, Pyrenees, July 20-27

* Do you wonder how you can contribute to these times of transition?
* Are you fascinated by the legacy of the Cathars?
* Can you hear the voice of the goddess calling inside of you?

Welcome to Light the Beacons, an inspiring week retreat near the Cathar castle of Montségur. We will celebrate the namesday of Mary Magdalene on July 22nd and work towards a special ceremony on July 26th. Which is the day of the opening of the Olympic Games in Paris, where all eyes will be on the Capital of Love and on the Notre Dame and what she stands for (read more). But July 26th is also the namesday of Anna, Grandmother of Jesus, and as such a very special day to re-activate the power of the sacred feminine. Let’s light that beacon!


‘When the feminine can no longer dance and embody the creative forces of fire, the world will turn to grey. Men will lose vision and children will lose hope. Nature will perish and the world will fall apart. So call upon the lovers, call upon the knights, the musicians, the artists, the troubadours. Call upon the new Cathars and the Magdalenes, to re-awaken the goddess and bring back the soul to life.’
