An Inner and Outer Journey
Join Anaiya Sophia and Pete Wilson on a week of discovery and relevation in the Occitan region of Southern France. This region is known for its connection with Mary Magdalene, the Cathar's, Knight Templar's, Troubadour's and the Knights of the Round Table. For centuries there have been "Grail Hunter's" coming to this land digging here and there looking for this mystical chalice... little did they know it was right under their nose!
Weaving together their gifts, Anaiya will set the tone every morning with her 'legendary' Kundalini Yoga classes, while Pete will keep an eye on the day's route. Together they expose us to the mysteries of Sacred France.
The routes we will be using are an ancient network of centuries old pathways. Some of them are well known routes, such as the Sentier Cathare (Cathar Pathway) and the Sentier Bons Hommes (Pathway of the Good Man) whilst others are ones that they have pieced together.
So, come and join us for an all-out adventure for those who love the mystery and are ready to Receive IT…
Wilson's Way was an astonishingly transformative journey, both inside and out. Pete & Anaiya facilitated such a beautiful and profound space to unwind, heal and restore. The yoga sessions in the morning raised some very deep themes/issues, which were then able to be processed out on the walking trails. The stunning scenery of the Langue d'Oc provided such a healing balm and opportunity to commune in silence with each other. I will be eternally grateful for my loving and loyal guides, Pete & Anaiya, for helping me to make this enormous journey. I cannot recommend the retreat highly enough!
