Pilgrimage to Chartres Cathedral September 8-13, 2013
Kayleen will join the Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress and Roger Housdent to offer a very special pilgrimage to one of the most glorious sites in the world
Sunday, September 8: Music, Myth and Mysteries of the Middle Ages While the Medieval period was a time of conflict, chaos and material suffering, it was also a time of a profound and unprecedented artistic and spiritual awakening- a cultural renaissance which has enormously valuable lessons to teach those of us in our world today who are seeking to live lives of authenticity, beauty and meaning. Join cultural historian and mythologist Kayleen Asbo for a celebration of the flowering of the pathway of love and creativity in Medieval Europe through art, music, poetry and mythology as we explore:
- Medieval Music for Pilgrimage from France to Spain on the Camino to Santiago Compostella - The myths and images of the Black Madonna as a psychological journey of transformation - The medieval Neo-Platonic schools and the Seven Liberal Arts as a pathway to the Divine - The troubadour quest for a soulful life through poetry, story, song and sublimated Eros - The Medieval understanding of a life enchanted through symbolism
Music, art and architecture tours will fill our afternoons, Our week will be crowned with a private candlelit labyrinth walk in Chartres Cathedral after hours, accompanied by a Medieval music ensemble, Join us for a once in a lifetime experience that will help connect you with the still small voice of wisdom inside your heart as you seek to follow a path of deeper meaning.
