Welcome to the mysterious and beautiful southern France.

An inner journey for you who yearns to find peace within.

A spiritual journey where you can experience your divine light, the divine feminine within and your essence.

Wonderful days in a fantastic environment together with other women in a small group and with personal commitment.


Our days will be filled with time in silence, meditation, yoga, body medicine and energy work. Through various ceremonies, rituals in nature, energy work, healing, meditation and inner reflection, we meet the woman in ourselves. We explore Mary Magdalene energies and the divine feminine within us and learn more about Mary Magdalene, her wisdom, her teachings and what she means to us today.

On excursions to selected Maria Magdalena sites filled with legends and history we will experience the magical alchemy through various rituals. You get to meet yourself and your inner light, to nourish your soul. We grow together as a group and create a community that carries us forward on the journey of meeting ourselves. Healthy nutritious meals mainly vegetarian and made from local ingredients will be served at the venue. We will visit a vineyard run by women for a wine tasting. The setting with magical energies is surrounded by inspiring nature in an old beautifully restored mill along the river in Pierre Morte, close to St Chinian. In the generous garden you can stroll around, listen to the river and enjoy the summer heat or plonge into the pool. The mill has generous surfaces, a beautiful space for yoga or body medicine and communal gatherings. The rooms are tastefully decorated and different in character. You can choose between double rooms, suites for two to three people or a single room. During the week, you have the possibility of individual coaching and energy treatments at a supplementary cost. Your hosts will guide you through this wonderful week with generosity, joy and inner wisdom. Welcome to meet the divine within yourself.

During the week you will experience:

meditation and silence

yoga and body medicine

healing and light

walking in the footsteps of Mary Magdalene

visits to energy places

sharing of feminine power and wisdom

transformation within
