Pilgrimage to the South of France: A Journey of Healing

May 16-31, 2019

A contemplative, thirteen-day journey through one of the most beautiful regions of the world: the South of France and the heart of Provence. The itinerary includes stays in Racamadour, the medieval city that has served as a Christian pilgrimage place for more than a thousand years; Lourdes, the ancient Christian healing place, and Avignon, in the heart of Provence with special emphasis on the healing journey of Vincent Van Gogh and Cezanne; there will also be side visits to Arles, Ax-En Provence and St. Remy, plus some of the most beautiful gardens in France. Our theme is inner healing, and the journey will allow time for rest, free time to explore and spiritual reflection. The pilgrimage will be led by Christopher McCauley, spiritual director and teacher and host of international pilgrimages and Frank Ramirez, veteran co-host of pilgrimages throughout the world.
