Journey with us to Mystical France, where legends of Mary Magdalene, Joan of Arc, Knights Templar, The Holy Grail, Black Madonnas, ST. Bernadette of Lourdes, and Isis have long thrived in this sacred landscape. An in depth study of The Gospel of Mary and The Nag Hammadi texts provides a deep understanding of Jesus’s teaching on the soul’s journey and how Gnosticism was experienced in the early Christian era. You are invited to connect with the Celtic roots of this land, once known as Gaul, home of towering mountains, deep gorges, forests, caves, and the Mediterranean Sea. Learn about the havoc caused by religious conflicts over the centuries while walking the grounds of the ‘heretical’ Cathar Castles that cling precariously to hilltops, temporarily sheltered from merciless invasions.
"Travel is rebellion in its purest form. We follow our hearts. We free ourselves of labels. We lose control willingly. We trade a role for reality. We search for better questions, not answers."Anonymous
“Everyone at Dancing Spirit Tours has tremendous integrity and you can really tell that they strive to be of service. They are very generous in all aspects; from taking care of the logistical details to how we are engaged as participants.”Breaden, Germany
“For me, the spiritual aspect is having the deepest impact… in fact, my experiences are STILL unfolding over a month after returning home – I experienced a deep personal breakthrough while interacting with the ancient sites and had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with an amazing medicine woman. I have been experiencing a subtle but powerful transformation that started by saying 'yes' to this journey. I am so grateful and thankful to Nina & Horst.”Catherine, CA, USA
