Love and liberation - those two things are at the core of Heather Plett’s work. (They’re even in the subtitle of her book, The Art of Holding Space: A Practice of love, liberation and leadership), Heather wants to help us find more of both, because she believes a liberated, loving world will be a better place for everyone. In this Pilgrimage, we’ll talk about how to hold space for ourselves and each other, so that we can heal and grow. The practice of holding space has the potential to transform our relationships, our communities, and ourselves. It supports us in living more courageously and it allows us to claim our own beauty, dignity, autonomy, and strength. When we live in more self-actualized and liberated ways, we transform communities, which transforms cultures, and eventually, everyone is better off.

The Chartres Experience

What better place to feel nurtured than the sacred space of Chartres Cathedral? We begin with a reception to meet each other followed by an opening ritual and orientation to the program. Then each day, there is a morning seminar, a small processing group, and an experience of what Chartres has to offer. On Tuesday afternoon, there is a tour of Chartres Cathedral. Then, on Wednesday, there is an orientation to the labyrinth followed by a once in a life-time candlelit labyrinth walk with medieval music on the Chartres Labyrinth.  Thursday afternoon is a tour of the Crypt , and a closing celebratory reception and dinner are on Friday.


Our block booking to reserve a room at the Hotellerie St. Yves where the program is held will open soon. All Pilgrims who have already registered will be emailed to make their reservations prior to the link becoming available on our website.
