In the Footsteps of the Troubadours Mountains and Mysteries in The Pyrenees June 20-25, 2019 We trace the glories and tragedies of the Middle Ages in this area of stunning natural beauty. Our focus will be Troubadour culture, with its emphasis on music, poetry and the pursuit of courtly love and the emergence of the tradition of Alchemy, a pathway of inner transformation. We reside as the exclusive guest at Chateau Camon, named by the Huffington Post as "one of the five best castle hotels in the world". Our mornings will include yoga and meditation, followed by sumptuous breakfasts. In the afternoons, we hike to the breathtaking vistas of the Cathar ruins of Montsegur and Roquefixade, then return for a swim in the pool, soul collage classes in the cloister garden, workshops on Medieval music or quiet time journaling and reading. Evening salons of music and poetry are followed by elegant three course dinners.
