The Essenes
The Infinite Light & Truth Within

Dates: May 14-20, 2023
Place: Vézelay, France
Who is this gathering for? Each gathering of Mary Magdalene’s School is a unique experience and complementary with other gatherings. Those who participate in several gatherings never have the same experience twice. The quality of each gathering is determined by real-time guidance and present-moment energies, as well as by the ever-changing consciousness of each and everyone present. The one common denominator of all of these workshops is a magical, miraculous shift in consciousness for each and every participant!

Number of places is limited

Vézelay, Eternal Hill, is overlit by the presence of Mary Magdalene, creating a channel of light in the magical countryside of Burgundy.

Imagine how this millennial sacred portal, and the surrounding sacred sites and waters, nourish your spirit and every cell in your body!

Imagine singing and dancing together around a bonfire; imagine timeless conversations and precious energetic exchanges and renewal! Imagine soul family finally coming HOME, to a place that we know is HOME, feeling in aligned resonance inside our deepest being! Imagine creating a heart field so powerful that it changes the course of history!

Come who feel resonant with the Magdalene Way; Cathars, Essenes, Priests and Priestesses, Druids, Shamans, Yogis and Mystics! It is time to gather as a community of the One Heart!

2023 Spring Ascension Week

We invite you to join us to gather as Essene Soul family and to collectively use our inner wisdom and spiritual tools for the magical creation of the New Earth during the 2023 Spring Ascension Week! So much awaits!

Transmissions, inner revelations, heart-felt exchanges with soul family, deep remembering processes … As so many participants of past retreats say – after this week, you will not be the same as when you arrive! You will leave as the next best (sometimes unexpected) version of yourself! Everything in the field conspires to strongly bring you back to your inner light … And have fun at the same time!

Infinite Light & Truth Within

We wholeheartedly invite you to join us for a very special story in May … a story about the Children of the Light. It is a miraculous story about YOU – Child of the Divine Light of Our Creator – and how YOU find, within yourself, answers for the next steps of individual & collective evolution.

You are the one you have been waiting for! Ancient vows of secrecy have been unlocked and we are in an accelerated unfolding of remembrance. It is all going so fast! We are in the process of recollecting and invoking the magnificent, infinite light that resides in the depth of our being. This is the spiritual light that holds the memory of our universal being. It is the spiritual light that is the secret alchemical component in all creation!

What can you expect?

Every day, we meet for the time required, giving the time needed for the individual & collective process of revelation. We generally meet in the mornings, allowing the afternoons for individual process work – but we keep a flexible program to meet real-time needs.  Space will be created to meet each other in the deep memory of the Children of the Light and to celebrate our Re-Union. We will allow our program to reveal itself through the space of the One Heart, in a balance between group and individual exploration.

Is this for you?

This is a story about discovering & using spiritual tools – tools we kept hidden deep inside ourselves – to bring higher realms of consciousness into the earth experience.

Through the veritable Soul University that we are living every day, we are asked to engage in a committed spiritual practice! Through such practice, we are passionately exploring & creating soul technologies to solve the disconnected creations of our world. It is a time of enormous opportunity when we engage with Life from the Essence of our Being!

If you are walking an earth journey now, then you have all that it takes to do this! In fact, this is why you came to this planet! The word Essene designates one who is a pupil in the School of Life, dedicated to the work of creation from the Source.  When we understand that earth is a School of Life and we decide to enter into sincere, heart-based learning, we inevitably encounter Essene community. In this quality of community, the learning process is held in a field of joy, inspiration, safety and unconditional love.

Are you an Essene?

The word Essene holds the Latin root esse, signifying “TO BE”. Esse designates Beingness, the Essence of All, the Original Source, Spirit, or Life. It is the I AM presence.

You are an Essene if your eyes and ears are tuned to the Divine Light Within, if you are attuned to the simplicity of your heart! You are an Essene if you are dedicated to the Holy of Holies – the Sacred Heart, alive inside each and every one of us.  It is through this inner sacred space that the magnitude of our infinite being reveals itself, through creation processes that reveal the miracle of Life, over and over and over again.

Far from being only a small Jewish sect, as is often written, the Essenes were, and are, all those committed to The Essence of Life. The history of the Children of the Light dates to the beginning of times; they are the ones with an unwavering connection to the Source, studying the workings of the Great Mystery through the Book of Life.

Essene Consciousness

The Essene commitment to Essence is key to accessing multidimensional realities that take us into a realm of magic & miracles.

And living in a realm of magic & miracles is what we are all so ready for and we know, as always, that Mary Magdalene & Yeshua will be guiding us into these fields of remembering!

This retreat will be a journey “Home”. As we rejoice in the proximity of our Essene Soul family, we remember… When we live and breathe our inner light, in community, we return Home.  In this week we will align individually and collectively with the Essene consciousness in ourselves. We will remember wisdom that we have for eons kept in our Sacred Hearts. The vows have been unlocked inside of us. It is time to bring all of our wisdom into the Earth realms.

The Essene consciousness is key:

  • to understanding the present
  • to refocusing
  • to finding our identity
  • to taking charge of our lives
  • to building a positive future for all

All areas of healthy, sovereign life – be it philosophy, culture, art, science, healing, relationship, cooperation, inter-species collaboration, exchange, invention & design – are rooted in a love of & commitment to Source, to a deep celebration of life, expressed as the joy of being alive. The Essenes are a movement set up to free people, to teach people how to penetrate the veil so that we can all access and live according to Universal Laws & Teachings.

What Our Previous Attendees Say About Us

Do you feel this call?

This return to Essence is the basis of the New World Civilisation. YOU are a part of making this happen!

It is time to remember … to focus on the cultivation of the inner spiritual light. The Divine Mother calls us to surrender to Her – to realign with a path of inner empowerment & enlightenment by re-defining & re-ordering our lives so that we are in permanent connection with, and awe of, the Essence of Life.

 In this gathering we will walk the Essene Way – through our inner experience, and our inner light.

 You are welcome, brothers & sisters of the Light!  We hope you will join us for this week of magic and miracles! We would be most honoured if you will join us to walk the path of the Essenes together!

Responsibility

While we will do our best to help you with the logistics of your journey, we cannot take any responsibility for the organisation, the safety, or the consequences of your journey to Vézelay. Please be mindful of the fact that you take full responsibility for your trip.

We invite you to deepen your spiritual connection and awareness of not only times past, but also to the new information coming in through the Vézelay Galactic and Inner Earth portal.

This region has a long and profound history of spiritual schools. The Avallon Druid School was internationally renowned. The region has many sacred natural sites, often off the beaten trail, where the druids worked. Fontaines Salées, in St. Père sous Vézelay, was a centre for Women Healers who worked with Venus, the Goddess Diana, and the Sacred Healing Waters. The Etheric Venus Rose-Gold Temple awaits you here!

Scattered throughout the territory were monasteries highly esteemed for their learning. The Templars, many of them Cathars dedicated to the House of Magdalah, originated in this region.

This land is now awakening and inviting us to deepen our spiritual connection and awareness of not only times past, but also to the new information coming in through the Vézelay Galactic and Inner Earth portal. The Basilica of Mary Magdalene at the top of Scorpion Hill awaits you, with its extraordinary crypt encoded with Unity Consciousness codes.

We are almost at full capacity for bookings at La Vieille Borde. Please contact Janneke if you would like to book a room. The retreat without accomodation at La Vieille Borde is still open for bookings.
