A long, long time ago, there was an ancient tradition of women who worked with sacred oils for the highest good of All. These women were called Myrrhophores, also known as myrrh-bearers or mistresses of the holy oils. This myrrh-bearing tradition has its earthly roots in the ancient temples of Egypt, Babylon, Syria and the Holy Land and is kept alive by practitioners today. Mary Magdalene was a Myrrhophore. Isis, Cleopatra, Hatshepsut, Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Nostradamus the names are many, yet the tradition is one.
Mystics and Myrrh-Bearers are one and the same and would use the oils to heal the wounds of the soul and to work as a spiritual guide for those passing over to the other side. This 8,000-year-old Mystery School Tradition may be calling you. Following the Sophia, Isis, Mary Magdalene lineage, we will use oils to heal soul wounds, heal the light-body, to work as a soul midwife, psychopomp and shapeshifter.
During our week together we will wander back through the halls of time as we remember our much-needed soul medicine for this time.
Our days will begin with Malika Yoga, (the Yoga of Queens/Pharaohs/Priestesses) a form of yoga created by Anaiya, that incorporates the Sacred Union of the Masculine and Feminine and Spirit and Matter. A somatic form of movement that calls forth the beautification of the body, heart and soul, with an emphasis on prayer, light and grace.
Our Retreat will be in Anaiya's new home, Les Contes, close to the Chateau de Montsgeur in the French Pyrennes. This enormous house holds a very special energy that is connected to Mary Magdalene the Book of Love and her spiritual descendants, the Cathars.
*Space may be limited to respect social distancing. Safety Protocols for COVID-19 will be in effect for this retreat making this event safe and respectful. The majority of our time will be spent outside. Our new venue can accommodate 19 people in separate rooms.*
