About Aletheia Sophia
About Aletheia Sophia

Aletheia Sophia is a Writer, Minister, Somatic Practitioner and Whisperer of Sacred Wisdom. Her highly acclaimed books, courses, transmissions, retreats, and workshops focus on the unearthing of the sacred body, from within the light of the soul, and thereby embodying its somatic wisdom. Her way of ministering this supernal wisdom is through movement, prayer, and the conjuring of the mythic imagination from the depths of the past, in the present for the sake of the future.

She has an intimate relationship with the land, especially the French Pyrenees, Egypt, and Ireland. All her work – writing, transmitting, somatic movement, storytelling, and teaching – springs from an irresistible communion with the land, and especially her goats. Every day without fail, she shepherds her goats into the mountains and valleys, which is rooted in as much as the myths and stories of the place as it is in a detailed knowledge of the physical and historical environment.

She has just completed working on Mary Magdalene's Audio Guide to the South of France, an evocative and expressive partnering with the mythic imagination and the land itself, and is currently finalising her latest book, The Grail King.

Aletheia leads workshops and trainings in Sacred Body Awakening and Sacred Body Deepening throughout Europe and North America. Throughout the summer she is mostly at home with her husband and mother in the mountains where they have taken on an almighty project – the restoration of an old Catholic summer house for children into the White Rose Mystery School, complete with chapel, Bed and Breakfast, Vegan café, Apothecary of Body Rituals and Animal Sanctuary. They produce a large proportion of their food, keeping goats, sheep, pigs, and an assortment of poultry; in a large thriving permaculture garden/food forest. That long, hard work, which requires her to be outside in all weathers tending to other living things, as well as a continuing daily need for long walks to explore old, forgotten Cathar paths, caves, and mountains, has blessed her with a deep and nourishing sense of connectedness to the spirit of the place that she feels drawn to share with others.

Over time she has developed an oral message that stirs the remembrance of a continuous lineage with the Feminine Principle that, throughout the centuries, has preserved its spiritual dignity without the need for permission or recognition from any other source. She is here to deepen your spiritual journey and to offer you a safe space whilst doing so. Suppose you feel a calling toward a tradition strongly rooted in the presence of Mary Magdalene, the Gnostic Sophia, and Christ's early teachings. In that case, you will find a palpable vein of Truth surrounding her.

  • Open your Heart with Kundalini Yoga (Harper Collins, 2002)
  • Mini Size Me (Lulu, 2005)
  • Pilgrimage of Love (Lulu, 2010)
  • Womb Wisdom (Inner Traditions, 2011)

Aletheia lives in the Cathar region of Southern France with her husband and mother. Together they run Les Contes, a B & B at the base of Montsegur where individuals, families and large groups can come and stay. Les Contes is a truly extraordinary place with an astonishing healing presence and is often said to be a catalyst for making important decisions.

Here you will find the Notre Dame de Sophia, a chapel consecrated to the Holy Spirit and the good works of Mary Magdalene, La Source de Belisama (enormous underground spring that fills a limestone basin), Le Jardin d'Eden (Johan’s Permaculture Project & Food Forest), The Mary Path (a mystical trail through the land), The Red Rose Cafe, the Apothecary of Body Ritual's (Sacred Spa) and Animal Sanctuary. Aletheia is an ordained minister and can conduct Baptism, Marriage, Ordination, End of Life, and other Rites of Passage Ceremonies.

Aletheia has also designed her clothing range, which she calls Anaiya's Wardrobe and a range of anointing oils called SOPHIA Temple Oils. She is currently alchemizing the waters of La Source de Belisama into "Sacred Source" medicinal holy water for drinking and healing.
