Sacred Journey  to the  Island of Crystal

A  14 Days Pilgrimage to Keltic & Cathares Powerplaces in South-France,

with Dr. B. Raven Lee & Dr. William R. Leon






     " Welcome  to  Caer  Sidi... ! "


Drawing on both Celtic and Tibetan Shamanic Healing practices, as well as modern Quantum Psycho~Energotherapy, Dr. B. Raven Lee and Dr. William R. Leon  invite you to discover  Caer Sidi,  the sacred Keltic & Templars Mandala in the Verdon area and its mirror sites in the Cathares Aude regions. The next pilgrimage will be organized in the South-of-France, within a choice between the five major Options, listed hereunder...


Caer Sidi  is a unique experiential program which includes introduction to both Tibetan Tsa-rLung and Celtic Shamanic Healing in selected powerplaces and allows participants to find their own Keys to Transmutation, Rejuvenation and (Self~) Healing, through the Body of Light practices...

The Caer Sidi Itinerary is intended to re-awaken and develop a synthesis of our latent roots shamanic abilities. We will learn how to intentionally shift our state of consciousness, link with Protectors and Holy Spirits, as well as how to get more awareness of subtle non-ordinary reality, while opening and cleansing our Higher Chakras.


We will establish connections with Mary Magdalene, as well as with other selected Keltic and Tibetan Sacred Helpers, Who will facilitate personal and communal health and healing. The programme will also be an opportunity to gather further knowledge in Central-Asian Common Ancestral Roots of Keltic and Tibetan Shamanic Healing practices.

Dr. B. Raven Lee, Dr. William R. Leon and other experienced intervenors will guide the target-sites meditation and healing rituals. Participants will concentrate on the compassion emanated from fully enlightened protectors and principal emanations in the Verdon Sacred Mandala and the Cathares Lore retreats.

The stream of transmission of the Compassionate Healing energies will bring the Third Eye (Ajna Chakra) and Compassion (Heart Chakra) in resonance with the Spiritual Heritage of the target-sites visited. This will lead to Initiations taking the form of "Spontaneous Arising Light"  (Tigle), Visions or other subtle transmissions inherited from the lineages, protectors and guardians of these sacred sites.

Experiential spontaneous transmissions of teaching and revelations from Masters, Angels or Fairies, have always been a foundational aspect of spiritual awakening in both the Tibetan Body of Light (Tsa-rLung) lineages and related Arts of Divination, Rejuvenation and Healing in the Grail Quest.

 Through the embodiment of the Keltic and Vajrayana Body of Light practices, we will pursue the Never-Ending Human Grail Quest of Spiritual Development.






  "Caer  Sidi,  The Island of Crystal "


Caer Sidi, The Fortress of the Fairies is mentioned in the Book of  Taliesin (Lewis Spence).

That Caer Sidi (Camelot) was the Seat of rituals and initiations for Healing and Divination of an extraordinary vitality and importance to the Celtic psyche is no new thesis . But that it can be re-awakened today,  simply through a comparative experiential study of  Grail Lore and Himalayan Tantric Shamanism is a testimony we want here to share  with you.

One of the Island of Crystal, or Caer Sidi, is the Celtic, Cathares, and Knights Templar sacred archaeological Mandala situated at the entry of the Gorges du Verdon, some 150 km northwest of Nice, South-of-France.

It was the seat of rituals and initiations for healing and divination practices, which originated from the Black Sea (Wisigoths and Scythes Central Europe) and the Asian Steppes (Kelts and Huns), and continued into early Celtic-Roman times and later Holy Grail Mary Magdalene Lore.

The word Sidhe (also spelled Sidi, Sidh, Sid, Sith ...) may be regarded as the standard term for "fairy" in the Gaelic tongue of Scotland , Wales and Ireland. While some reliable authorities further stress that Sithide or Sithde is the genitive of Sithd, a female fairy, Gaelic records Sidhe as also implying "hill" or "mound". Mounds and hills often are both graves and  abodes of the elves.

  Caer Sidi : " the  Itinerary... "

  Caer Sidi  will be of a 14 days duration, on the traces of the Healing tradition of Mary Magdalene, Wolfram Von Eschenbach Grail Lore and Tibetan Vajrayana in the sacred sites of the Verdon and Pyrennees, including pilgrimages to Montsegur, Puivert, Alet, Limoux, St Maximum, Ste Beaume, St Victor, Ste Marie and other Sacred Black Madonna altars.

At the introduction level (First Tryptic), we will visit and scan together the Verdon Mandala target-sites and will focus upon the historical heritage for the envisioned synthesis of the Tsa-rLung, Yogas and Keltic Archetypal Healing practices.

It will include numerous references to the Grail and Keltic Christendom Lore Mythology giving Keys for the practices (Wolfram Von Eschenbach) in relation with the current Tibetan Tsa-rLung Five Elements (Body of Light) teachings from  Khyentse Rimpoche, Dudjom Rimpoche, Tarab Tulku Rimpoche, Tenzin Namdak, Namkhai Norbu, Tenzin Wangyal Rimpoche and John M. Reynolds, amongst others, this always bearing in mind the hermeneutics needed for a synthesis of Roots Shamanic Healing practices.

We will drive in mini-bus and then trek to several megalithic artefacts, ruins, fortress, altars or chapels, following the ancient pilgrimage traces for a renewed Grail Quest.





  (Valcros)  Caer  Sidi  2009  !

Caer Sidi 2009 is a 10 days intensive Sacred Arts & Shamanic Healing Practices in selected target-sites of the Verdon Sacred Heritage, including some further discovery and study of Keltic and Templars altars at the frontiers and center of the outer and inner Mandalas.

The Magdalene Pilgrimage is a renewed programme focusing more indepth into the Grail Lore, the Three Maries and Sarah mythology, the Black Madona(s) altars, the Ste Baume lgend and other (so-called secret) scriptures or traces found within the Troubadors, Kabbala and F-M sources, this within a renewed Itinerary basically the same as that pursued in October 2008 in the Verdon, Ariege and Aude regions, but now more focused upon divulging the relations between symbolism, rituals, history and powerplaces, and the Dakinis  ...
