And so, claim the archives, did the altar of Râ became the
village named Ratis, which means boat, island or raft. In
those times, Sancta Maria de Ratis was the first name of the
Stes Mairies de la Mer...
The name "Mary,"
simply means "Healer." According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, if
you had this title, you were a healer. The Bible mentions Mary
Magdalene. What is not clear is that she was a woman of wealth
and a close companion of Jesus.
was from the tribe of Benjamin, the 12th tribe of Israel. The
women of the 12th tribe of Israel were the spiritual healers.
They established a school that honored the teachings of the
Magi. These students were know as the Sisters of the Emerald
crucifixion of Jesus, the Nazarenes were put into boats and
set afloat without oars, food, or water. Pontius Pilot was
their protector. There is evidence that Pontius Pilot was a
cousin of Jesus. After the crucifixion of Jesus, he became
commander of the Roman troops in Southern France, and assisted
these people in arriving in Provence, where he awarded them
land in the swamp, known as the Camargue. They again
established the Magi schools, and the group of women known as
the Mary's became famous through their use of essential oils
in South France.
was the carrier of a tradition of respect and reverence for
the Divine Feminine, a secret initiatory tradition that leads
back through Jesus, Gnosticism, the esoteric teachings of
Judaism, and the Egyptian mysteries of Isis to the ultimate
ground or source of all religions.
By seeking out the alternative roads to understanding, by
looking at the Gnostic texts, legends, symbols, and
iconography, one discovers the distinct possibility Mary
Magdalene was not only first witness to and herald of the
Resurrection, but the chief disciple and recipient of
Christ’s’ gnosis, as well as teacher and transmitter of these
extraordinary Mysteries to the people of France.
In the midst of
this cosmopolitan confluence of cultures, along with the
exchange of goods there must have been an exchange of
philosophical and religious ideas. It is very possible that
during this period many spiritual and symbolic links were
discovered between these diverse peoples and their traditional
belief systems that stretched back to the temples of Egypt.
Before her arrival, France was riddled with Isis cults. The
name Paris etymologically can be linked to the pre-Celtic
ParIsis, the grove of Isis. Clearly this region was fertile
ground for Mary Magdalene’s mission.
arrival in France, she was said to have travelled the land,
preaching the authentic Gnostic gospel of Jesus, which had
been directly transmitted to her during his time on Earth and
in mystic visions after his return to the more subtle
dimensions of light. French religious literature from the
Middle Ages is filled with legends and stories of the life of
Mary Magdalene from this period until her death. Tales abound
of her miraculous healings, her performance of the ritual of
baptism, her aid in fertility and childbearing and even her
ability to raise the dead. There are even reports of a secret
tradition of the healing arts that exists today in France and
traces its roots back to Mary Magdalene.
prophetic mission was accomplished, Mary is reported to have
withdrawn to a cave in Ste. Baum, where she spent the
remainder of her days in pray and seclusion. She is believed
to have been buried at Ste. Maximin where her remains were
watched over by Cassianite monks from the fifth century until
the Saracen invasion. Then in 1058, in a papal bull, Pope
Stephen acknowledged the existence of her relics in the church
of Vezeley, which became one of the major places of pilgrimage
during the Middle Ages.
But before we
look at the evidence for her distinctive role as Apostle of
the Apostles and prophetic mission, let us take a look at the
hidden history of Gnosticism, the powerful doctrine of Divine
grace, healing and illumination that she was said to have

France, Poland, Italy and Spain. She is the Blessed Virgin
Mary of the Crusades and holy pilgrimages.
where Mary Magdalene died in AD 63, was the old town of Acquae
Sextiae. It was the hot springs at Aix (Acqs) which gave it
its name - acqs being a medieval derivative of the Latin word
aquae (waters). In the Languedoc tradition, Mary is remembered
as la Dompna del Aquae: the Mistress of the Waters. To the
Gnostics (as indeed to the Celts), females who were afforded
religious veneration were often associated with lakes, wells,
fountains and springs. Indeed, gnosis and wisdom were
attributed to the female Holy Spirit which 'moved on the face
of the waters' [Genesis 1:2].
Earlier, we saw how the baptismal priests of the Gospel era
were described as 'fishers' and, from the moment Jesus was
admitted to the priesthood in the Order of Melchizedek
(Hebrews 5), he too became a designated 'fisher''. The
dynastic line of the House of Judah was thus uniquely
established as a dynasty of Priest Kings or, as Jesus's
descendants became aptly known in Grail lore, Fisher Kings.
The lines of descent from Jesus and Mary Magdalene, which
emerged through the Fisher Kings, preserved the maternal
Spirit of Aix to become the 'family of the waters' - the House
The del Acqs
family legacy, which remained central to the Grail theme, was
always directly related to the sacred waters and was always
associated with Mary Magdalene...
Archbishop Raban Maar's richly illuminated manuscript of The
Life of Mary Magdalene consists of fifty chapters bound into
six volumes. It tells, among other things, of how Mary,
Martha, and their companions left the shores of Asia:
" ... and favoured by an easterly
travelled on across the [Mediterranean] Sea
between Europe and Africa, leaving the city of
Rome and all the land of Italy to the right
[north]. Then, happily changing course to the
right (north), they came to the city of
Marseilles in the Gaulish province of Vienne,
where the River Rhone meets the coast. There
- once they had called upon God, the Great
King of all the world - they parted... "
The libraries of Paris contain a number of manuscripts even
older than Raban Maar's, which bear witness to Mary's mission
in Provence. It is specifically mentioned in a hymn of the
600s (republished in the records of the Acta Sanctorum, issued
by the Jesuit, Jean Bolland, in the 17th century). Mary's
companions, Mary-Salome (Helena) and Mary Jacob (the wife of
Cleophas), are said to be buried in the crypt of Les Saintes
Maries in Camargue. Long before the 9th-century church was
built, its predecessor was called Sanctae Mariae de Ratis and
near the present main nave is the remains of a sculpture
showing the Marys at sea.
remains were preserved at the Abbey of St. Maximus, some 30
miles or so from Marseilles. Charles II of Sicily, Count of
Provence, disinterred Mary's skull and humerus in 1279 in
order to have them set in the gold and silver display casings
in which they remain today. Some of Mary's other bones and
ashes were kept in an urn, but these were vandalized during
the French Revolution. Mary's cave of solitude is to be found
nearby at La Sainte Baume.
At the heart of
this lineage of transmission was an extraordinary metaphysical
teaching known as Gnosticism. This teaching is believed to be
the spiritual basis of his essential message to humanity, a
message revealed to Mary Magdalene, his disciples and
followers through the vehicles of metaphor, allegory and
parable. Unlike the patriarchal, dogmatic, materially based
teachings prevalent during this period, Gnosticism placed
primary value on the feminine qualities of receptivity,
intuitive perception, visionary experience and the art of
healing. It was a teaching of love, selflessness, harmony and
experience of, and communion with, the essential grace and
majesty of Divinity, lay at the heart of this Gnostic
transmission. The clear and immediate experience of this
awakening was known as gnosis or wisdom. Often translated from
its Greek root as ‘knowledge’, Gnosticism goes much deeper
than mere intellectual understanding. Like a brilliant flash
of light arising from the darkness, this understanding arises
in the individual as a bright lucid awareness – an intuitive
realisation of the pure essence, nature and energy of Divinity
as it flows within oneself, the luminous realms and all of
doctrine of the Gnostics relates the dualistic nature of the
world in which we reside, the eternal struggle between good
and evil. They believed that Jehovah, the wrathful god of the
Old Testament was a false god and expression of what they
called the demiurge. For how could a fully enlightened
divinity contain within him the base emotions of anger,
jealousy and vengeance? For them, the real God was a loving
deity equally and directly accessible to all. This God taught
that love, compassion and the true sacrifice and
transformation of the self, or ego, was the highest spiritual
believed that the plan of this demiurge, or Satan, was to trap
spirit in matter, and the Earth itself was a prison in which
souls were exiled from their divine home. For them, the real
world was the non-material world of spirit and all of their
rituals and practices were designed to purify them and provide
them with the means to find their way out of the impure world
of matter, darkness and suffering and return to their true
home in the Light.
sacred esoteric teachings were revolutionary. Unlike the
fixed, restrictive, hierarchical systems prevalent during this
period, these teachings were open to all, female, male, rich,
poor Jew or Pagan. This all-inclusive transmission of
teachings formerly reserved for the elite was at odds with the
practices of Orthodox Judaism and the emerging Church of Rome.

she or he came to recognise their own divine nature and
perceive their place in the world from a whole new
perspective. No longer did they need the intercession of a
priest or rabbi to connect them with their spiritual
Magdalene and the other saints supposed to have landed at the
Stes-Maries, one of the most interesting is saint Sarah, now
the patron saint of the Romani (Gypsy) people. Stes-Maries is
the centre of her veneration and a place of pilgrimage for
Romanies throughout the world. Sainte Sarah, also known as
Sarah-la-Kali ("Sarah the black", Sarah e Kali in the Romani
origin of this statue is lost in antiquity and there is no
doubt that a Black Goddess must have existed there long before
Christianity. According to some authorities the village now
known as Les Saintes Maries de la Mer was originally known as
Ratis, which means raft in Latin, and later, the church itself
, which is shaped like a boat, and dates back at least to the
12th century, was for some time known as Notre Dame de Ratis
(Our Lady of the Raft). There is also evidence that in the
first century AD, Artemis, Cybele, Isis and the Celtic Triple
Goddess, Matres had temples there.
The origins of
the gypsies are no longer a mystery. We know that they left
India as a group of nomads around 900 AD, reached Persia in
950, and were in Egypt by 1230. By 1370 the gypsies, or Gitans,
were in France and it is said that they were in the Camargue
in 1438 – around the time of the excavations carried out by
By the Middle
Ages there was a widespread legend in Provence, that Mary
Jacobé, Mary Salomé and Mary Magdalene had arrived in the
South of France after travelling from Palestine in a boat
after the crucifixion of Christ. They then allegedly taught
Christianity to the local population. This is mythology only,
since official Christianity did not exist until long after the
demise of these Biblical Maries. The exact location of this
alleged landing was originally not defined. This legend
mentions Sarah, a Black Egyptian servant who accompanied the
three Maries and who sustained them while they were spreading
the Gospel by travelling around begging alms. Another legend
claims that Sarah, the Egyptian, spread her cloak on the water
when the boat was in danger of sinking, thus enabling the
three (now two) Maries to reach land safely. A Romani folk
legend claims that Sarah was the "queen" of a Romani group
living in the area when the three Maries arrived who became
baptised and taught her people Christianity. This, of course,
is not possible since the Roma did not leave India until the
11th century AD.
By 1438 the
location of the actual landing was established as Les Saintes
Maries where the present church, housing the two statues of
the two white Maries and black "Saint Sarah" now stands. The
pilgrimages are mentioned in the 15th century. ‘Egyptians" 1
the name then used to define the Roma in Europe, are mentioned
as being present at the pilgrimages as early as the mid 15th
century. This can be accepted since the Roma entered central
Europe through Romania by the end of the 14th century and by
the middle of the 15th century they had spread as far west as
Spain and as far east as Poland/Lithuania. Their first
documented appearance in France was in Paris in 1415.
course, has a Hindu goddess known as Kali. Kali is represented
as black – which would have greatly helped the confusion with
identifying Sarah as a Black Madonna – which, to a large
extent, Kali is indeed.
Common Shamanic Roots
Recent evidence strongly suggests that there is a connection
from the Mediterranean Bronze Age yoginis and those historical
yoginis recorded two thousand years later in India and Tibet.
Eurasian mummies unearthed from burials in the Altai Mountains
of Mongolia and the Tien Shan Mountains of China have changed
our ideas regarding Bronze and Iron Age peoples, showing that
they traveled thousands of miles in their migrations and
shared cultural contacts that connected them all the way from
Turkey and Greece to Tibet, India, and the western edges of
China. Buddhist monasteries and temples were financed by
merchants engaged in active commerce along the Silk Road that
linked China to Rome. Female priestesses wearing high conical
black hats (like Russian “Babas” and European witches of the
Middle Ages) have been found in the Tarim Basin from the late
2nd millennium B.C. bringing to life the many enigmatic
textual references to “dakini witches” and “yogini queens” in
the later histories of pre-Buddhist Tibet that have only
recently become available in English.

The Black Madonna is honored as a true Goddess figure, and has
been since Christianity entered Europe. She is honored by many
as Isis, Gaia, Kali, Mary, "the Other Mary" (Mary Magdalene),
Diana, Sheela Na Gig, and the Ancient Primal Earth-Mother
For many European Christians, the blending of their ancient
Goddesses with the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a well
accepted fact of their faith for centuries, there is no
conflict. The Black Madonna, be She called Isis, or Mary, or
Kali, or Diana, embodies all the aspects of Female Divinity
for many millions of people.
According to Helena Blavatsky in her book "Isis Unveiled" on
page 443 - Vol II, she states: The exoteric plan of the Bible
was made to answer also to four ages. Thus, they reckon the
Golden Age from Adam to Abraham; the silver, from Abraham to
David; copper, from David to the Captivity; thence-forward,
the iron. but the secret computation is quite different, and
does not vary at all from the zodiacal calculations of the
Brahmans. We are in the Iron Age, or Kali-Yuga, but it began
with Noah, the mythical ancestor of our race.
Noah, or Nuah, like all the euhemerized manifestations of the
Un-revealed One - Svayambhuva (from Svayambhu) - was androgyne.
Thus, in some instances, he belonged to the purely feminine
triad of the Chaldeans, known as "nuah, the universal Mother."
Every male triad had its feminine counterpart, one in
three, like the former. It was the passive complement of the
active principle, its reflection. In India, the male Trimurti
is reproduce in the Sakti-trimurti, the feminine; and in
Chaldea, Ana, belita, and Davkina answered to Anu, Bel, Nuah.
The former three resumed in one - Belita, were called:
"Sovereign goddess, lady of the nether abyss, mother of gods,
queen of the earth, queen of fecundity."
Western observers who are familiar with Hindu religious
customs have identified this ceremony with the Durga Pooja of
India In Romani, Kali Sara means Black Sara and in India, the
Goddess Kali is known as Kali/Durga/Sara.
Like the Hindus, the Roma practice shaktism, the worship of
Goddesses. In other words, the Roma who attend the pilgrimage
to Les Saintes Maries in France and in other related
ceremonies elsewhere honouring black female divinities, are in
fact continuing to worship Kali/Durga/Sara their original
Goddess in India.
According to the Durgasaptashati (seven hundred verses in the
worship of Goddess Durga and her various forms), chapter 5,
verse 12, which mentions Sara, contains the following: "Salute
to Durga, Durgapara, (Deliver of all difficulties), Sara,
(Embodiment of everything par-excellent), Cause of everything,
Krishna and Dhurma (Evaporated form in smoke)." Other
references in this ancient Hindu scripture also confirm that
Sara is one and the same with the Indian goddess Durga who is
also another aspect of Kali, the consort of Shiva.
The memory of Shiva himself has been preserved among the Roma
as O Baró Devél in Romani. Thus, the Roma pray to Kali Sara to
intercede with O Baro Devel to bring them luck, health and
prosperity. During the ceremony of the Durga Pooja in India
which takes place annually in October, a statue of Durga is
carried on a platform into a body of water and immersed which
destroys the statue. At Les Saintes Maries, the Roma do not
immerse the statue but otherwise the two ceremonies are so
similar that the similarity could not be accidental. In
France, a reduced Kali Sara ceremony also takes place in
October to complement the major festival of May.
The unexplained mystery is how the worship of Kali became
fused with the Black Madonna in the crypt at Arles. Most
likely there was always a Black Virgin at Les Saintes Maries
dating back to Pagan times, which later became incorporated
into Christianity. To explain the presence of this Black
Statue, the church may have simply invented the legend of
Sarah, the Egyptian servant of the Three Maries, now reduced
to two with the passing of time and the Church’s attitude
towards "sin.". In other words, there must have been multiple
overlays of the original Black Goddess whose name or names
have been lost. Many cultures and religions have existed in
the coastal region of Les Saintes Maries, perhaps Egyptians
and Cretans, but certainly Phoenicians, who founded the colony
of nearby Massalia (Marseilles), Gauls, Greeks, pre-Christian
Romans, Christian Romans and the ancestors of the present
The Roma arrived early in the 15th century when
they would have been forced to hide their original Indian
beliefs and religious practices under a veneer of Christianity
to escape condemnation and persecution by the Mediaeval
Church, which began to root out heresy and witchcraft in the
15th century. To avoid charges of heresy and
witchcraft they must have found this loophole which allowed
them to continue to worship Kali in the guise of Sarah the
King René d’Anjou of Provence was responsible for establishing
the cult of the Maries and of Sarah the Egyptian in the 15th
century. King René was reputedly the friend or lover of Joan
of Arc and narrowly escaped charges of heresy himself because
of his "pagan beliefs" and his founding of the Order of the
Crescent which the Church viewed as suspiciously Islamic and
also connected with the pagan worship of Isis. This was
considered unacceptable to the Church which at that time was
devoted to stamping out heresy. It was during his reign that
the remains of the four unidentifiable, decapitated skeletons
were discovered during excavations under the church. These
were assumed to be those of the Three Maries and Sarah, the
Egyptian. . This, however, conflicts with the bones found
later, in a box under the church in 1496, which are also
claimed to be those of Sarah the Egyptian servant of the
original three Maries. Bones are bones and could have belonged
to anybody including martyrs to some faith, Christian or
non-Christian, human sacrifices to some long forgotten God or
Gods, or even to some pious priestesses or temple virgins who
died after a lifetime of service to some long forgotten
Goddess. As far as is known, they have not been carbon tested
to establish the date of demise which might help to solve the
Standard Christianity took a long time to become established
in the Provence region of France and this may have created a
refuge of tolerance where the Roma were able to worship Kali
Sara unmolested. This was the location of the Cathars and the
Albigenses, two Gnostic Christian groups who were mercilessly
persecuted by thugs, pillagers, arsonists, murderers and
rapists with an eye for loot masquerading under the guise of
"Crusaders" recruited and blessed by the Pope of the era under
the banner of Christ to wipe out "heresy" in the region.
But until today, many survivals of pre-Christian religions
survive in this area from the sacred white bulls and the
horses of Provence, another ancient pagan legacy perhaps
connected with the worship of Mithra, the tridents carried by
the Guardians, the bull herdsmen who escort the statues of the
Two Maries and of Kali Sara into the Mediterranean on May 24
and May 25 to the Black statue at Les Saintes Maries whose
confused and multi-layered identity has allowed the Roma to
worship Kali Sara in the guise of Saint Sarah while the
original Black Goddess herself has refused to die but has
suffered only many changes of names and identities with the
passing of time.
Sacred Art works is one of the valued skillful means (Upaya)
in terms of inspiring practitioners towards practice,
excellence and harmony. The practitioners of today,
particularly Ngakpas, find a personal calling to try to revive
many of these art traditions so that they increase rather than
fall into memories of the past.
In this sense, the present Introduction and training into the
Shamanic traditions of the Ngakpas, is not a simple
importation of yet another Tibetan system of hierarchy or
reference, but an integrated renewal approach to spirituality,
within daily life work, and as a path of personal
We know that these unconsciousness levels and cultural aspects
are difficult to ‘see' because of their transparency, as such
are most of our modern rituals in society, and that as such

Core Shamanic methods may address everyday ailments, malaise,
depression, anxiety, addiction and behavioural issues that
cause concern, discomfort, pain and dysfunction for the
client. Many people have suffered past traumas, whether
mental, physical and/or emotional. These traumas affect our
energetic fields, the very essence of what connects our minds,
bodies and souls together.
On a more Hermeneutic (egregor) point of view, Core Shamanic
practices may also address powerplaces dysfunctions, restore
their energetic balance to their natural heritage
(pre-traumatized) state; restoring peace and access all
spiritual heritage sentient beings there residing (locus dei),
and scan the soul for embodiment...
Shamanic Healing practices works through spirit to facilitate
the restoration of an individual’s karmic energetic field.
The body/mind/spirit connection exists through the energetic
field and when that field is damaged due to trauma the
individual experiences significant power loss. The shamanic
practitioner consults with spirit to see and diagnose the
damaged areas of the energetic field and then formulates a
shamanic healing plan for the individual seeking restoration.
It is important to understand that in the practice of
shamanism the shamanic practitioner works in partnership with
his/her helping spirits. The helping spirits do the diagnosis
and advise the practitioner on what healing should be done and
which shamanic methods to use in the healing process.
In this sense, some recognized professional training in
counselling, clinical anthropology and/or developmental
interventions is clearly emphasized as the prior-requirement
for any healing practices to be considered.
The 'Incantations' thereupon preformed may present an unusual
form of musical and poetic shamanism; here Tibetan and Celtic
tunes meet Cuban folk melodies, here Grail Lore inspiration
poetry meets Thangkas aesthetics. Thus the listener dwells
through the labyrinth, facing the archetypes and archaic
sounds, that wake the primal image of the karmic worlds of
their soul. It is an naturally evolving unique combinations of
archaic world traditions and modern post-rock sound.
The (self-) healing practices of the Ngakpas Body of Light
yogas, Shamanism and Grail Lore are woven together in this
experiential pilgrimage. We will explore the
interconnectedness of our bodies, minds and spirits in a way
that is deeply supportive to each individual. The ritual of
Chod will comprise uniquely haunting, melodic chants, known to
heal physical, emotional and spiritual discord.
We may use Core Shamanic Methods of the lineages
considered in order to evaluate the selected target-sites,
residuals entities, enfolding karmic events and practitioners
in situ. The motivation is to promote awareness, compassion
and healing to those in needs.
Guardians of the Ark of Alliance - Comps
Through the seats of knights of the Grail Lore we shall use
the angelic energies to assist us in the transformation of
darkness-or unawareness, unconsciousness-into the greater
light of self-awareness.
Essentially I will call forward each of the Archangels, one by
one. Their energy will then manifest each person and into the
vibratory patterns of everyone who is present. Because the
Archangels are such a high vibratory rate, being in their
field creates a spiritual purification corresponding to the
energy of that Archangel. There are seven Archangels that we
can work with...
There is a specific ritual for each of the Archangels, and we
will lay the groundwork with specific ritual objects, incense,
and oils, and then I call the Archangel into the space. And
then, through the tones-the sounds-they affect each person
present. This high level of light and vibration purifies the
darkness of unconsciousness.
There are seven layers or aspects of unconsciousness that we
are able to address by working with the Archangels in this
It is possible that the order will change, but at the moment
the order would begin with Michael, followed by Gabrielle,
then Raphael, then Zadkiel, then Auriel, followed by Chumuel,
and ending with Metatron. After each of the rituals and the
Archangel enters into the space and works with everyone
present, there will be a time of silence, or introspection, so
everyone can allow these energies to integrate.

one from moving upward in consciousness. There are many, many
strands that hold people down. These are related to family
members, friends, social relationships, cultural thought

person locked into unconsciousness. Some of these strands are
there simply because of the nature of human interaction. Some
of them are more insidious in nature and are in place
specifically to hold the individual in a lower level of
expression and evolution; for people are much more easily
controlled when they are unconscious. This first movement is
very dynamic, because Michael will cut through everything that
has been offered.
With Gabriel there is an intense vibrational energy released
that is metaphorically called a Trumpet. It is actually an
angelic vibration that causes an implosion of negativity. One
way to look at this is that with the sword of Michael, cords
that bind are released-cut through-and with the sound of
Gabriel they are pulverized.
Raphael is a calming energy of healing. Because of the dynamic
nature of cutting through so many cords, so many energy ties
that bind, and the implosive sounds of Gabriel, the aura tends
to be somewhat in shock. Raphael enters into and calms, heals
Then we enter into another action through Zadkiel, which will
enter deeper into the auric field, so to speak. And like a
serpent, it will move through and devour other levels of
negativity and unconsciousness.
Auriel is like the singing of the angelic realms, and it is a
comforting energy, similar to Raphael, which generally is what
we would want after Zadkiel. Then we move to Chumuel, which is
a movement of expansion-very rapid expansion-which in this
case will be tied to light and awareness, or consciousness.
Then after Chumuel we move to Metatron. And essentially what
happens here is that we lock into place the changes that have
occurred through the agency of the other six Archangels.
Otherwise there would be a tendency for individuals to move
back to their resting place. With Metatron there is less
slippage, so to speak.
So this is a very energetic experience and we are using the
energies of the Archangels to transform the darkness into the
light of awareness.
