Explore your Past Life (Lives)  ... in a Cathare castle

(€150 for a 1/2 day - €200 for a full day session)
  • Have you ever wondered why you are inextricably drawn to a certain person, place, geographical area or period in history?
  • Is something deep within calling you to visit the Pays Cathare, inspired perhaps by one or more of the sacred castles?
  • Are you alone in feeling this or does your life partner also deeply attracted for the same reason?


Over the years, I have met many people who felt drawn specifically to the Pays Cathare because they had experienced some form of triggered recall and subsequent need to resolve this and/or understand their interest in the plight of the Cathare people in 12th/13th century France. Examples of triggered recall are when we meet someone for the first time and yet we feel we have known them for years or when we visit a new town/country and it feels so familiar that we even know our way around without directions. 

Spontaneous recall occurs when people experience unsolicited flashbacks or intense daydreams that engender that déjà vu feeling. Our subconscious communicates with us all the time and especially so during our sleeping state and so past life recall can often appear quite vividly to us in our dreams.

My husband was so absolutely convinced that he had been a Cathare in a former life - it was one of the reasons why we relocated to this area. Unbridled curiosity finally sparked me to train as a past life regressionist and hypnotherapist ... and what a beautiful and interesting journey of discovery it has been for both myself and my clients undertaking their past life regressions.

peyrepertuseIf you, like them, feel drawn to this most magical and sacred place and want to explore your own past life connections to these people and lands, then we can work to ascertain whether or not there is one particular Cathare castle that draws you to energetically reconnect with a past life there.

Where no single castle stands out for you, we can initiate a past life regression to explore your connection to the Pays Cathare/Occitanie area. If your life partner has the same yearnings as you for these lands, there's a high probability that you were both in the same past life here together and are now re-visiting the energies of that time and place for reasons which may positively enhance the quality of your present life.

An Unparalleled Opportunity

Here at the Razès Gîtes we are based in the midst of the Pays Cathare, on the proverbial doorstep of the Cathare castles, which makes us uniquely able to offer past life regressions either within the the Cathare castles themselves or here in the meditation room, as you may prefer.

Whereas the majority of people undertake a past life journey to satisfy some personal curiosity, exploring past lives has also helped countless people unlock trauma, explain anxiety and mood disorders, and even given context to a particular disease that they are living with today: in other words, regression therapy can help you better understand past experiences that may be affecting emotional and physical reactions in the present day. Food for thought indeed.

You can choose to incorporate your past life regression as an aspect of your Walking for Wellbeing or Pathways to Stillness experience here at the Razès Gîtes or simply come to experience it as a stand alone option: €150 for a half day session or €200 for a full day (most likely includes more travel). Get in Touch for more details. 

Chakra Heal and Balance (€50 per session/hour)

chakrasChakra healing is about tuning in to the body's main energy centres (the chakras) in order to receive information on the state of energy or prana flow throughout the whole body system and identify any blockages which may be impeding a strong and healthy flow. All physical, mental, emotional and spiritual ailments and problems are related to (and thus have an impact on) bodily energy flows/blockages.

So how do chakras get blocked? If you have ever suffered one or more of the following, you will likely have one or more blocked chakras: work stress, stubborness, denial, fears, phobias or anxiety, resentment, rejection, grief or heartbreak, financial difficulties, low self-esteem or sexual repression/oppression. To name but a few.

A one hour healing session - hands-on or distant (i.e. via the internet) - can: identify which chakras are weak or blocked and why; remove old, stale energy which no longer serves and/or is detrimental to the healthy functioning of the body; and recharge the chakras to enhance good prana flow throughout the entire body system. This process results in the client feeling greater inner peace, physical and spiritual wellbeing for the highest good of the soul.

If you feel that you have lingering or niggling emotional or physical symptoms that need clearing up in order for you to move forward in life with greater relish and vigour, a chakra healing and rebalance may work wonders for you.

Coaching in Soul Writing (1, 2 or 3 hours per day - €30 to €80)writers

Writing helps us to express ourselves and our intentions more fully, communicate with greater clarity, become more focused, productive and better decision-makers. Through writing, we can develop a greater sense of awareness, generally learn more, be happier, deal with emotional and stressful problems better and work through them more easily. Writing is arguably one of the best cathartic tools available to us all. And yet, many people don't know where or how to start.

Everyone has their own story to tell - be it in note, poem or prose form - and so learning to write freely and for yourself is a great tool for self-expression, healing and development.This module is perfect then for the creative expressive seeking guidance on how and where to start, how to find inspiration, develop themes and even discusses publishing techniques. Whether you want to learn how to harness your musings and experiences in the written word through games, workshops and feedback or simply have the time, space and place to write on your own with occasional support as and when you feel the need, is entirely your choice. Writing for yourself is about stepping away from your regular everyday routine to learn how to bring characters, settings and stories to life in your unique way or simply to follow your soul's voice and write from the heart to release everything you ever needed to let go of in order to move forward in life.

Yoga Stretch and Flow (1, 2 or 3 hours per day - €30 to €80)

stretch 1Yoga helps improve our flexibility, strength, and posture bringing about a better all round fitness and may even help some of us to shed a few unwanted pounds. Bringing attention to our breathing in each pose helps increase mindfulness, boosts energy levels and longevity, reduces stress and makes us feel happier and more peaceful within ourselves. As a form of meditation in its own right, yoga has all the associated benefits. For those who find sitting meditation uncomfortable, yoga is often an ideal way in which to bring focus to both our breathing and posture.

Over the course of your retreat, we can show you a simple 30 minute Hatha yoga flow routine - comprising both standing and sitting poses - to take home and practice daily to help you relax within the privacy of your own home. The routine has you fluidly and gracefully flowing through from one pose to the next with the outcome of balancing your energies and enhancing your sense of wellbeing.  Practice yoga at a time that best suits you and you'll be giving yourself some much-deserved time out from what can often be an over-demanding and busy life.
