An Unforgettable Journey
Embark on a soul-stirring adventure from Monday 7th October to Monday 14th October 2024.
Experience the perfect weather in October – not too hot, not too cold, just right for exploring the enchanting landscapes of Crete.
A connection to the Motherland
Reconnect with the ancient lineage of the Sacred Bee Goddess as you immerse yourself in the spiritual energy of Crete.
Experienced Priestesses, Katinka Soetens and Angie Twydall, will guide you every step of the way.
Bees have long been seen as sacred in Minoan culture (which we rename as Ariadnean). The bee is one of the oldest forms and symbols of the Goddess.
Experience the Power of Ancient Rituals
Immerse yourself in the rich history and spiritual Goddess traditions as we pay homage to the late Minoan Priestess at her undisturbed bee-hive grave.
Together, we will participate in a profound ceremony of re-birth, connecting with ancient wisdom and divine energy.
Nurture your Senses with Nature’s Gifts
Indulge your senses as we wander through the sacred mountain, picking fresh bee-loving herbs that fill the air with their intoxicating aroma. We will honour this sacred land by making honey libations offerings into the cleft of the peak sanctuary, invoking ancient rituals passed down by generations of Priestesses.
A Journey of Birth, Death, and Re-birth
Follow in the footsteps of the revered Priestesses who held space for life’s most profound moments. Experience their wisdom as we explore themes of birth, death, and re-birth – allowing you to connect deeply with your own journey and discover new dimensions within yourself.
Discover Mythos and Unwind
In Mythos, experience the true essence of Greece. Take some time for yourself to swim, shop, and relax in this charmingly authentic Greek town. Rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.
A Unique Encounter with “Katoe Simi” Bee
On our 6th night together, we will have the extraordinary opportunity to visit a local beekeeper who works with the rare and special “Katoe Simi” bee. Learn about their fascinating world and connect with nature like never before.
Journey to the Temple of Aphrodite
Experience a profound initiation at the great peak Sanctuary Temple known as the Temple of Aphrodite. This sacred place was dedicated to Queen of the Bees and Hermes, Son of Maia. Discover the divine wisdom bestowed upon them by the triple Bee Goddesses, the Thriae.
A Pilgrimage’s End at Eileithyia Cave
We conclude our pilgrimage by driving to the north coast where we will visit Eileithyia Cave (if open). This sacred cave is dedicated to the Goddess Eileithyia, symbolizing new beginnings and rebirth. Connect with the energies and embrace the transformative power of this ancient site.
Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to embark on a pilgrimage that will transform your spiritual path of the Sacred Bee Priestess.
