Heart of the Mother
Rennes le Chateau, located in the lovely Languedoc Region of southern France is full of many mysteries. Mountains frame both ends of the region, the Cevennes to the northeast and the snow capped Pyrenees to the south. The area is known for beautiful scenery, with jagged ridges, deep river canyons and also, its rich history. Languedoc has been well traveled for centuries by people migrating from Africa and the ancient civilizations of the Middle East, through Europe. Settlers include the Celts and Druids, Visgoths, Romans, Christians, Cathars, Knights Templar and the Nazis.
Along with this complex history comes enormous intrigue about the region. The entire area around Rennes-le-Château became the focus of interest during the 1950s involving the Merovingians, the Knights Templar, the Cathars, the treasures of the Temple of Solomon that included the Ark of the Covenant. From the 1970s onwards claims have extended to the Priory of Sion, the Holy Grail, ley lines, sacred geometry alignments, the remains of Jesus Christ, and references to Mary Magdalene settling there in the south of France. Books, such as The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code have their roots in the Rennes-le-Château area.
It all seems mysterious and exciting! We will be traveling here with the intention of understanding some of the mysteries and to experience the energy that is held in the churches, castles and the beautiful countryside. Feminine energy is predominant. The statues of Mary holding the baby Jesus in the churches reflect the way the Egyptians portrayed Isis holding the baby, Horus. The divine Feminine energy can be sensed and is easily felt here, as it is held in the land throughout southern France. This Goddess energy is waiting to be uncovered by us, so we can integrate and use it to fulfill our earthly potential.

My beloved Divine Mother
Dance with me
under the soft moon shining
in the wide open fields
far beyond the toil and trouble
of my busy mind
Dance with me
before the night grows old
while the winds of love
still bow the grasses
and the coyotes howl for you
to step their way
Dance with me my beloved
while the Mystery's Edge
still flirts in the shadow
of your radiant light
