At the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountain, you will find the majestic town of Lourdes, France. Every year, thousands people make the pilgrimage to Lourdes to experience the healing powers and waters of Mother Mary. On February 11, 1858, a young peasant girl, Bernadette, was fetching firewood with her sister and friend when a beautiful woman appeared to her at the Massabielle grotto and requested that she return to the grotto. After a number of visits, Mary revealed herself to Bernadette as the “Immaculate Conception.” During one of Bernadette’s visits with Mary, she told instructed Bernadette to dig in a certain spot and to drink from the small spring that began to bubble up. So after, countless reports of cures from drinking the water were reported. Since 1858, Lourdes has been one of the most frequented Marian sites as people from all over the world make their way to experience the healing waters of Lourdes.
Even though Mother Mary has not made a physical appearance in Lourdes in a very long time, Mary’s presence is felt though out the town in the grotto, in the sanctuaries, in the baths, while walking along the streets and the Stations of the Cross, and through the shops and restaurants where the dedication and love for Mary runs deep and unending.
Our pilgrimage begins in the city of Toulouse, where we will meet and take the train through the Pyrenees to the center of Lourdes. Here we will make our way to the Bartres Villa. This is a charming villa 10 minutes from the center Lourdes which offers a peace environment perfect for creating a safe and enjoyable space for our retreat. Whether sitting on the large terrace with views of the mountains, lounging in front of the wood burning stove, or enjoying a delicious farm fresh meal in the spacious dining room, this location offers us the unique opportunity to delve into the French culture and ourselves.
Each day will be spent working on exploring, awakening, and transforming ourselves through meditation, prayers, dancing, movement, breathe work, creativity, and group healing sessions while at the villa, as well as daily excursions to the Lourdes Sanctuary.
Throughout the week while we are at the Sanctuary, we will experience sites that most people are not even aware of. (We found these sites by accident last time we were at Lourdes and they were life changing.) We will begin with connecting in with the Mary at the Lourdes Grotto and then we will make our way to the original sanctuary known as The Crypt for a group prayer and Third-Eye meditation. We will attend the healing baths for a personal baptism with the Divine Mother. This is a sacred and beautiful experience which allows us to let down our walls and open our hearts to receiving the love of Mary through her healing waters and energy and through the volunteers who will be lovingly and compassionately assisting us.
One afternoon, we will walk up the hill next to the Sanctuary and experience a walking meditation through The Way of the Cross taking time at each of the Stations of the Cross to connect in and heal our own personal crosses. The magnificent statues at each station up to and including the crucifixion will transport us back to 2,000 years ago connecting us with Jesus as he works with each of us to heal that which is keeping each of us from living the life we were born to live.
We will also spend one evening gathering with other pilgrims for the Torchlight Marion Procession. This is a candlelight procession through the grounds of the Sanctuary which begins with a prayer and ends with the Priests giving a blessing.
Throughout the week, we will have free time for processing, exploring, and shopping. Lourdes is full of amazing local artisan and souvenir shops, including the delicious locally made ice-creams and fresh fruit sorbets shops, as well as lavender, soaps, and pottery shops. You can also take advantage of the tram and walking tours of Lourdes to learn the history of the town from the Middle Ages until present including a stop at the historic castle, Chateau de Fort, which provides amazing panoramic views of Lourdes.

All but three meals will be lovingly prepared at the villa by Robin and Joelle with local farm fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, and meats. The farm to table concept may be the rage in the U.S., but in France, it is a way a life which includes healthy living and a commitment to the local community and environment.
Our final full day in France will be spent in the historic city of Toulouse, which is known to the locals as “La Ville Rose.” Toulouse offers beautiful parks, historic Cathedrals, and close proximity to the Pyrenees Mountains for skiing and hiking, the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea for beaches and boating, and other famous cities such as Carcassonne, Languedoc, and San Sebastian for day excursions and fun nights out.
While in Toulouse, you will have the opportunity on your own to spend the afternoon experiencing the exquisite cathedrals, high end French shops, pink buildings, Romanesque architecture, modern and historic sculptures, a walking or bicycle tour of the city, a take leisurely stroll along the banks of the Garonne River, or riding the Ferris wheel.
Our journey ends with a delicious dinner of French cuisine musical entertainment on the L’Occitania. This 2.5 hour cruise will treat us to fine cuisine, beautifully lit historic buildings and monuments, and live music.
I love how the sacred sites, angels, and masters call to me to come join them in these holy places of love, peace, and renewal and the transformations, initiations, and enlightenment we each go through on these journeys inspires and awakens me and fills my heart with so much love and joy. This is why I do this, and why I’ve coordinated sacred pilgrimages through over a dozen countries and why I am so excited to share Lourdes with this divine sisterhood.
In 2015, I coordinated a sacred journey to France, which included two days in Lourdes. While I have been Lourdes before, this tour was different. Mother Mary’s loving energy was so present and the messages, healings, and the many sacred experiences from a holy baptism, to walking the stations of the cross, to prayer and meditation, to sacred ceremonies with our group and the entire city, and to feeling so very loved and filled joy from Mother Mary, Jesus, and Archangel Michael were miraculous and inspiring. So much so, that before I left Lourdes, I was directed by Mother Mary to return with a divine sisterhood for a week long sacred pilgrimage so that these amazing women will have the opportunity to also experience the miracles of Lourdes and to aid in the healing of women throughout the world, as well as humanity itself.
My greatest desire is helping others to heal their hearts and souls, especially through sacred pilgrimages. I am very passionate about traveling to sacred places to connect with the energies of these sites to assist with helping our growing divine sisterhood in healing their pains, releasing their traumas, and transforming their lives in the most loving and empowering ways. Through the last 20 years, I’ve trained and worked with some of the most powerful and talented spiritual teachers and healers which has provided me with years of experience which I love to share with others.
I have been to Lourdes several times and each time miracles happen and more of the Divine power of the Mother is revealed to me. This is a place of rest and healing but most of all a place where we are reintroduced to the truth and glory of who we are as spiritual beings.
I have wanted to go back for a long time, but it wasn’t until now that the Mother made this request to bring 12 women, a divine sisterhood to walk the Stations of the Cross, to be baptized in the Holy water of Lourdes, to release, heal and refill with the pure warrior spirit that enveloped Bernadette’s heart. This is such a unique opportunity – to be in Lourdes with all its splendor and glory, to participate in ancient ceremonies, to connect with spirit, and have fun being ourselves and sharing our authentic selves with each other.
It is truly remarkable to see the transformation that occurs within each person as we travel to Sacred places. We are always guided by the Heavenly Host to make change, to heal and to share all that’s revealed to us with the rest of the planet. The love, joy, healing and magic that happens brings us all close to our true and holy nature, and I love that. www.RobinRose.co
