September 7, 2013 SACRED FRANCE TOURS 2013 Secrets of the Cathars and Mysteries of the Magdalene (May 14-21, 2013)

In the Footsteps of the Magdalene (May 21-28, 2013) Created in December 2010, the Sacred France tours stand for quality, visible in the quality of our hotels, food, coach, and guides. Our eye for detail and knowledge of the region makes our tours a unique opportunity to see this region through new eyes. It is one of the reasons why in less than two years, we have grown to become the main provider of quality tours in this region. Indeed, most of our tours are described as being sacred journeys and initiations into the magic of this region. Many of our visitors come as part of a pilgrimage or to fulfill a sometimes life-long ambition. Click here for itineraries and other information SACRED SCOTLAND TOUR 2013 June 17-24, 2013

(This trip is sold out) Scotland is one of the most untouched regions in the western world, which means it has been able to retain its mythical past. From Rosslyn Chapel to the magical island of Iona, Scotland has thrilled millions of people over several millennia, yet it still feels “untouristed” and pure. On our 2013 journey to Sacred Scotland, you will be guided to this land’s most sacred sites, both ancient and modern, at a time of year when Scotland is more magical than ever: because of its latitude the nights are very short, and experiencing these extremely long days is a unique experience in itself!

We step into the footsteps of William Wallace, the Celtic initiates, those who entered the Celtic Fairy Realm, and many more legendary and historical figures. Please note that this is not a “tour” per se – it is a spiritual and historical journey, and we ask that everyone who chooses to attend arrives in the spirit of community and open-minded exploration. Experiences in this region can be very intense and transformational. They will also be just plain fun. Click here for itinerary and other information PAST LECTURES
