Thursday evening, 27th April -1st May 2017
Col de la Lauze, 09300 Montferrier in the Pyrénees, France
We would like to invite you to join us as we take the opportunity to explore ourselves and this Prayer that uses words attributed to Jesus in the language that he spoke.
We will use body prayers and body awareness practices, walking meditations, breath and sound practices, chanting, Dances of Universal Peace, moving meditation.
Together, as Jesus guided us, we will experience “when two or more are gathered in my Name, I Am there among them”, using words in Aramaic, the sounds of power, that Jesus gave to us in the form of this prayer and other sayings.
We will use a form of the prayer as an individual practice that we can use in our daily lives, as well as dancing the prayer cycle using simple movements, chanting the words, accompanied by guitar.
This can allow us to experience this practical prayer of renewal in new ways that can help us transform ourselves and our lives.
All are welcome.
What to bring:
- You might like to bring a shawl or blanket for the sitting practice, possibly a meditation stool or cushion
- A journal to use writing and drawing to deepen your experience

Notes for travellers from the UK
The easiest airport to fly to would be Carcassonne. There are probably coaches going from Carcassonne to Lavelanet, where our hosts would pick people up. Otherwise it is possible to fly to Toulouse and then go to Foix by train, then by coach to Lavelanet. If people manage to arrive at the same time, it might be possible to pick people up from the airport. That would need to be organised in advance! Some people are interested in the history of the Cathars....Dominque Asherah says, "Yes indeed, we are right in the land of the cathars, with Montségur 15mn from our place, and well visible from our home. Col de la Lauze was most probably a road taken by cathars from Foix to Montségur in order to avoid the big cities and ways"
