SACRED JOURNEY TO THE ISLE OF CRYSTAL:
A 14 DAY PILGRIMAGE TO THE CELTIC DHARMA MANDALA IN SOUTHERN FRANCE

The Isle of Crystal, or Caer Sidi, is the sacred Celtic, Cathares, and Knights Templar archaeological site situated northwest of Nice, France. It was the seat of rituals and initiation for healing and divination practices, which originated from the Black Sea and the Asian Steppes, and led to the evolution of the Holy Grail legends. Beginning in the 1970s, Tibetan monasteries were built on Celtic powerplaces in France and U.K. By1985, Tibetan lamas, such as H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, and Tarab Tulku Rinpoche, had recognized the mandala site as portals to the Celtic Annwn (the land of ancestors, or the Tibetan Shambala), if approached with the right Keys. After three decades of research and synthesis, this ancient powerplace is now being re-activated, opening to those who are called to experience the healing frequencies and consciousness of the alchemical union of the sacred feminine and masculine energy leading to Body of Light.

Drawing on Celtic, Cathares, and Tibetan shamanic practices, Dr. B. Raven Lee and Dr. William R. Leon of CAIRN invite participants on a magical, experiential, healing tour. The heart of the program is the connection to the feminine principle of the Black Madonna and Mary Magdalene, and the Grail Lore Spiritual Warrior Path. The program includes Celtic teachings, shamanic exercises, meditation, breathwork (pranayama), and Tibetan energy and chakra practices (tsa lung), allowing participants to enter the mandala and learn ways to transmute negative patterns, connect to Universal Energy and cultivate Body of Light.

Cost is $3400 Euro ($2900 staying at 2 stars), all-inclusive, except for airfare to Nice, France.

“This pilgrimage was both profound and extremely fun. Amid fantastic scenery we visited very simple places that touched the depths of my being and connected me to my past – my ancestors, my spirituality, my very soul in ways that led me into a future bright with promise. The call to become body of light in ordinary everyday life is powerfully supported through this experience.”
