Red Spirit Woman Tours
Exclusive Women's Retreat
Join Kathleen on a magical journey in the heart of Provence to awaken the senses, renew the spirit, and inspire the mind while exploring the incredible beauty and ambiance of this remarkable region.
Follow Mary Magdalene’s thirty-year history in Provence by visiting key sites: where she arrived by boat on the shores of the Mediterranean at a village now called Saintes Maries de la Mer, the famous cavern where she spent time in meditation and refuge, and her crypt under the basilica of Saint Maximin de la Sainte Baume.
Magdalene’s story can inspire the sacred feminine in us all, as we utilize intuitive practices such as numerology, astrology, and tarot throughout the week, so everyone can return to their daily lives with a new sense of empowerment.
Experience this deeply mystical and historical journey while staying in a beautiful Provencal inn reserved exclusively for our group. There is time to relax in the garden or meditate by the pool all the while enjoying the gracious hospitality of our hosts, wonderful French cuisine, and local wines.

Join Kathleen on this one-day tour and discover the incredible history of Mary Magdalene in Provence. We will drive to the village of Saint Maximin de la Sainte Baume to visit the basilica, built in 1295 to protect her burial site. Learn more details of “La Madeleine’s” history as we tour the basilica and visit her underground crypt. After lunch in the center of the village, we’ll drive 40 minutes to the beautiful Sainte Baume Mountains. Then we will walk the pilgrim’s path (a moderate 45-minute hike) to the cavern where Mary Magdalene spent time in meditation and refuge. This is a powerful site visited for millennia by royalty and commoners alike to pay homage to the woman and her spiritual legacy.
We’ll also visit the monastery at the base of the cavern, home to the Dominicans charged with protecting her sites since the thirteenth century. The chapel walls are adorned with beautiful frescoes that illustrate her story. We will return in the early evening enhanced by the enigmatic history of this remarkable woman.
