& special guests 
Eleanor O'Hanlon & Steven Pope

August 4-6 Bugarach France

The lion's essence is your connection with your heart and your force of manifestation, expressing the voice of your soul, in consciousness with your multidimensional nature earth sky.

For this time of opening of the Lion's Gate, I invite you to raise awareness of your union with your divine essence to bring out your strength to manifest the truth of your heart. In connection with the elements and the territory of the Cathars, the sweetness and resilience of Marie-Magdalena, facing the magic mountain of Bugarach and its power of alignment, we will come together to go into our hearts and receive the energies of the star Sirius which aligns with the earth, the belt of Orion and the sun in Leo, to receive the vibration of the heart of the lion. Thus you will receive the messages of your soul and your true being in order to see clearly the right manifestation for your path.
We will go to the sacred sites of this land imprinted with the memories of the Essenes, in connection with the guardians of Earth and Heaven, to open your wings to your highest vision of life. In the vibration of your divinity, you will find the keys to your sovereignty, purified from interferences and healed from the wounds of the past. Fears will be transcended to make way for the truth. To simply be, to be in your heart, to be your primal nature, to be your divine essence, to be multidimensional and to live fully.

This retreat is guided by Clara Sofia Medicine Woman and creator of the Salon des Alchimistes, platform uniting ancestral knowledges. Clara Sofia guides retreats and cacao ceremonies between Europe and Colombia and co-creates with the indigenous peoples of the Amazon and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
For this retreat in Bugarach, we will have 2 special guests, Eleanor O'Hanlon, author and guardian of the spirit of lions & Steven Pope, author, teacher and guardian of the sacred texts of the Kabbalah. They will share with us their experience in Africa among the first Kalahari peoples who initiated them to come into contact with free lions in the wild. Eleanor will share this experience with us so that we embrace the multidimensional nature of the lion.
Steven will share with us a sacred Kabbalah text: “The Lion Spirit of Universal Love” from the Song of Songs book. These texts allow us to connect to the source through the vibration they carry.

Looking forward to meeting you for a strong moment of sharing, awakening and healing,
Clara Sofia
