TOMAR (PORTUGAL), October 2 – 6, 2024

Have you heard the call of destiny?
Do you feel called to hold space for the challenges we face today?
Are you longing for a community of like-minded souls?

Welcome to the New Templars, the New Warriors of the Heart.
A 4-day retreat in Tomar, the Portugese capital of the Templars.

‘Through the ages there have always been sacred warriors, who have heard the call of the heart. In any form. Be it Christian, Roman or Celtic… The outer circumstances don’t matter. Because underneath there is always the same tradition of the heart, who upholds the ethics and the sacred laws of the universe. It is this tradition that you are part of, in a long lineage from the Essenes, the Cathars, the Templars… And it is up to you to restore that tradition to be in service in these times of transition.’
