BELTANE SHAMANIC & SOUND RETREAT
WITH CULTURAL EXCURSIONS
29th April – 6th May 2024 in Condom, Gascony
A rejuvenating spring week of shamanism and sacred sound to bring healing and self empowerment within the landscapes of Le Puy Camino de Santiago. Fly into Toulouse and transfer to your luxury accommodation at Champagne House in Condom is included
Beltane is the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer, when earth energies are at their strongest. It’s an amazing time of year to ‘sow the seeds’ of your hopes and dreams. Together we will work with the potent energies available at this time, both in our retreat space and in the surrounding sacred sites we visit.
Our week will unfold with daily circles of shamanism and sacred sound both at Champagne House and during excursions to historic cultural sites in the surrounding area.
Shamanism will include ancient rituals and energy tools to help manifest our dreams for stepping into an empowered future. We begin by seeking our Power Animal to support us during the week. Sacred Sound will include gong immersions, voice work, chanting and singing especially in the extraordinary acoustics of the surrounding ancient chapels, all of which brings us into an uplifted state of being.
At Beltane we will celebrate with a Sacred Fire, and midway through the Retreat you will undertake your own one day personal pilgrimage on The Camino de Compostela on the 8 mile section between Le Romieu and Condom (there will be a shorter option available)
Finally we have a wonderful visit to a traditional Saturday French Market at Nerac and close our week in the beauty of Abbaye de Flaran with a ceremony of gratitude.
Each day there is personal time to relax or explore Condom
