Mary Magdalene & the Christ Consciousness
Sept. 29 – Oct. 6, 2018
France

An invitation to join me and others from our Soul Family, creating time in France, celebrating the life and love of Mary Magdalene while expanding the Christ Consciousness of all.

Time for adventure, celebration, soulful conversation, nature, divine inspiration, laughs and joy.

I am led to Sacred Travel experiences to spend time together, with others that are also living our light… not seeking, but finding.

No longer trying to be the perfect human. Rather, choosing to embrace, claim our perfect light, which is eternal.

And here. Now.

Jesus knew this and lived this way. As did Mary.

Our itinerary is carefully planned and lovingly guided, offering us a journey of divine light.

You will feel the energy of Your soulful vibrations, savoring why you have chosen to be incarnated… at this time.

Itinerary

B = Breakfast L = Lunch D = Dinner (I’m so excited about the local cuisine we will be enjoying throughout this time together!)

Day 1 – Saturday September 29 – overnight in TOULOUSE (D)

Flights into Toulouse airport code TLS (arrival times not later than 6pm). Check into hotel. Welcome Dinner at local restaurant at 7:30pm. Overnight in Toulouse. Note: based on flight choices, a pre-tour night in Toulouse on Friday Sept. 28 can be arranged. I tend to fly in a day early. Last time we did this fantastic trip, the group that flew in early got together and we made a fun day of sightseeing out of it.  Toulouse is beautiful (and with great restaurants, no surprise there).

Day 2 – Sunday September 30 – overnight in CARCASSONNE (B/L/D)
Breakfast at Hotel then check out.  Meet our amazing local guide Veronique, a fellow soul family member who also loves and appreciates Mary Magdalene and her unique and sacred journeys. Depart for Carcassonne (1.5 hour drive).  Visit of the medieval City in Carcassonne, Unesco World Heritage.

Time on the bus throughout the tour is made fun and expansive with channeled messages, deep Q&A and group readings!

Lunch at local restaurant. Transfer to RENNES LES BAINS for visits. This area is full of energies and there is a reminiscence of Celtic/Druid history here. Walk to the Trembling stones and if enough time, finish with the Hot Spring of “Les Bains Doux” (37°C) – optional participation. Check into hotel. 
Dinner at local restaurant in Carcassonne.

Day 3 – Monday October 1st – Overnight in SETE (B/L/D)
Breakfast at the Hotel. Check out of rooms. Daily guided excursion by private bus to MINERVE & PEPIEUX MINERVOIS. The Dolmen is undoubtedly the finest megalithic monument of the Aude. Situated on a hill named the Moural de Fados, it is called the Fairy Dolmen. Then, we will visit Aigne, the tiny one thousand year old “snail village”, which was built, consciously and purposefully, in a spiral. We will tune in to appreciate its unique energies. Lunch at local restaurant. Visit at Minerve, place where almost 200 Cathar leaders were burned in 1210 as heretics by the Catholic Church for refusing to recant their truth. When we journeyed here in 2015, we noticed that the heavy energy had already been cleared by others, allowing us the opportunity to purely honor the Cathars, their personal faith and divine connection. From 17:30 time at leisure.

Why am I doing this trip? For many, the Christ Consciousness is alive, awake and very much a part of who we are. Jesus is a comrade, a Brother. Light within isn’t something to be earned; it is something to be claimed. The legends and facts of Mary Magdalene and her role alongside Jesus are captivating, intriguing and somehow personal to me and perhaps you. She is said to have journeyed and taught in France after Jesus death and resurrection. The crystal breadcrumbs are everywhere she went. The locals know of her journeys there. They/We do not seek external confirmation or validation of Mary Magdalene’s role, purpose, and love. We know in our hearts, in our minds and our Souls what Mary is, of what Jesus is, of what we Are.

I invite you to join me on a trip to the areas in France where Mary Magdalene lived, laughed and loved; activating and deepening our own Christ Consciousness.

This trip is specially designed, specifically created for us, for this time, for now, helping us further activate, embody, share, and be the pure Light of God, the loving Christ Consciousness that humanity was created to be. All of humanity has this origin. Few know it and even fewer claim it. This journey is for us to further flood our humanness with the Light of God… for the evolution of all of humanity, by our being our Light.
