Writing from Belcastel

Here we are, writing from Belcastel. I thought we lived in an ancient place, and of course, we do - but - Becastel, both the village and the chateau Belcastel are even older and stranger and just so beautiful. We hadn’t found out much about it before we arrived so it was quite wonderful to discover that the chateau has an ancient chapel devoted to Mary Magdalene and that the church in the village as well is devoted to her. The chateau is a Templar stronghold and the combination of Magdalene and Templar energy is quite amazing. We need to digest all of this before we write about it. Interesting experiences everywhere here! 

The workshops are wonderful. Brian has been having a fascinating time with his groups and I do hope that mine have enjoyed the experience as well. I think they have although I’m making them work quite hard! Some how, working very hard in a castle is easier than working quite hard in the middle of a city! Well - it’s a different experience certainly! 

There are faeries and spirits here -someone took photos with orbs in almost all of them -all hovering over Brian (and a few over me as well). We can’t remember who took them so if you are reading this please get in touch! There are also tiny lizards and bees and all sorts of wildlife and blue skies and sometimes thunder and lightening. Very dramatic. 

I’m finding it hard to write while I’m experiencing all of this. I’ll catch up when we get home next week and try to sort out something coherent to tell you. 

Until then -We’re living a medieval life and eating and drinking far too much but enjoying it all enormously!
