Refreshments to follow.
*PREREQUISITE: Although this workshop is open to all who hold heartfelt interest, Patrice asks that participants be sure to have read her book 'The Portal' prior to attending, as much of the work and lecture will depend on a preliminary understanding of the initiates' journey under the Great Bear.

PATRICE CHAPLIN is an internationally renowned playwright and author who has published more than 28 books, plays, and short stories. Her most notable work 'The Siesta', was made into a film staring Jodi Foster and Isabella Rossellini. In her recent memoirs 'City of Secrets' and 'The Portal', Patrice opens the door publicly to new and compelling elements of the Rennes-le-Château and Grail mystery: the little-known, yet crucial, Girona connection, and its energy imprinted daleths (doorways) leading up to the portal on the peak of Mt. Canigou in the Pyrenees. For the latest news and event information, keep in touch with Patrice at http://facebook.com/PatriceChaplin

DAVID V. BARRETT has written numerous books on new religions and esoteric movements. His new release "The New Believers" was described as "an excellent guide to fringe religions that juxtaposes 'respectable' movements and those conventionally dismissed as cults" (Daily Telegraph) and a "no-nonsense, comprehensive survey packed with non-judgmental information about the beliefs, aims and activities of such movements" (Daily Mail). Michael Baigent wrote of "A Brief History of Secret Societies": "In a field normally typified by confusion and ignorance this book by David Barrett is clear, concise, informative and to be recommended." Barrett holds a PhD in the Sociology of Religion.
