For more information please use the contact form below stating your areas of interest. Here are a few of our most popular themed retreats:
Grail Seekers Retreat
An Introduction to the Grail legend, through the Grail Tarot and shamanic journeying, Devotions include the Rosary of St Mary Magdalene and the Mass of the Holy Grail. This retreat may also include initiation as a Knight of St Joseph of Arimathea or a Dame of St Mary Magdalen, or initiation to one of our higher grades (K/DSJB & KTPP).
Cathar Spirit Retreat - "Make me a good Christian and bring me to a good end"
The spirit of the Bonhommes is alive and well, constantly adapting itself to new generations and fresh spiritual insights. As it is known that there were Cathars in our neighbouring commune of Piuro it is also conceivable that Catari Perfetti may have even travelled this way. Our pure mountain air and wide skies are certainly conducive to introspection and re-dedication and so this retreat focuses on personal vocation and spiritual direction with pathworking using the Cathar Tarot as well as study of the neo-Cathar teachings of Antonin Gadal. The devotions at this retreat include the Chaplet of the Seven Signs (Johannine), the Temple Mass with readings from the Gnostic Scriptures and the traditional Cathar Rites of the Apparellamentum and Consolamentum. Other initiations and ordinations also possible.
Trinity Grove Retreats
Initiations to the grades of Bard, Ovate and Druid (as appropriate); Celtic teachings, rituals and shamanic work. Trinity Grove is a contacted mystery school in the neo-Druidic tradition.

Theurgical Magick for Clergy
A retreat for clergy focussed on the theurgy of the Temple Mass and the traditional theurgical operations of the Hidden Church of the Graal.
