Sept. 27-Sept. 30th, 2019
You are invited to journey to MYSTICAL ITALY–

A Heart Opening Journey to Self
Sanctuary of Archangel Michael in a grotto
Birthplace of St. Francis in Assisi Italy
I am pleased to announce being guided to create another sacred journey for 2019–this time to create a mystical pilgrimage to the Puglia Region in Italy to pilgrimage in Monte Sant’Angelo and the abbey itself, a very sacred place on our planet where Archangel Michael has appeared many times throughout history and to the birthplace of St. Francis–Assisi, Italy. Join us for ten days of magical days of meditation, ceremony, joy, spirit and laughter. The dates are astrologically selected to be in the Equinox Energy, which thins the dimensional veils and to coincide with the Feast of Saint Michael, Sept. 29th.
This sacred pilgrimage is for those who are seeking a deeper experience of peace and wholeness in their lives, no matter what tradition they may be from, and have felt drawn to Assisi in their search. Assisi is one of those spiritual “power spots”- a uniquely beautiful town on an idyllic hillside in central Italy, that has nurtured two of Christianity’s most beloved saints- Francis and Clare. Their radical practice of selfless love and simplicity, embracing all of creation, has made Assisi draw pilgrims from all walks of life, all traditions, and from all over the world, like a magnet to the soul.
To enjoy this grande adventure our pshycial activity will be moderate to extended walking at times on uneven earth and stone terrain. Our excursions in both areas are not wheelchair accessible and you must be able to walk unasssited. We also advise becoming familair with the altitute of the mountain villages we will be visiting.
Assisi is one of those spiritual “power spots”- a uniquely beautiful town on an idyllic hillside in central Italy, that has nurtured two of Christianity’s most beloved saints- Francis and Clare. Their practice of selfless love and simplicity, embracing all of creation, has made Assisi draw pilgrims from all walks of life, all traditions, and from all over the world. Monte Sant’Angelo is a picturesque white town at the highest point on Puglia’s Gargano Promontory, the spur of the boot. Best known for its pilgrimage site, the Sanctuary of the Archangel Michael in a cave where tradition states that Michael has appeared and has spoken many messages. It is a medieval center, full of small, white-washed houses and interesting to explore on foot. Our accommodations are within 5 minutes walking distance from the shrine, so plan on some easy walking.
We will dedicate sufficient time for group ceremony and alchemy as well as solitary reflection and processing time. This journey is meant for all positive loving souls; space will be limited. We are on a pilgrimage, some may call it a mission….not tourists, though there will be time set aside to explore the areas on your own for shopping and cultural immersion.
The Chapel of San Damiano is where Francis felt his calling to serve with humility and an open heart. It eventually became the Cloister for St Clare. It is nestled among the ancient olive trees and was where he began his journey. The cross spoke to him here and was later moved to Saint Clare’s Cathedral, where it hangs to this day.
THERE ARE ONLY 3 SPACES REMAINING NOW AS THIS RETREAT IS LIMITED TO 9! After that a wait list will be formed.

*The cost for transport from your arrival destination to the Center is not included. However, if arriving in Rome we can connect you with a professional transport service which has been recommended to us to take you to our hotel. I’m told these reservations need to be made a month in advance.

If you are not continuing on, there is the same transport service (and others) which you can contact directly to return you to Rome International Airport (and possibly to other local airports).

Of course, we will be guided directly by Michael during our journey (and other master guides), to provide further insight into ourselves, expand our awareness of others and other places on our planet during this time of Ascension. If you are called to serve and learn more about yourself, don’t delay as space is very limited.
Sept. 27th: Arrival from minibus transport from Assisi to our hotel.
Sept. 28th: Visitation to the Shrine with processes from Kelly
Sept. 29th: THE FEAST OF SAINT MICHAEL OR MICHAELMAS DAY. Due to the crowds and number of masses scheduled, we have elected to reserve a portion of the day to visit the Shrine of Padre Pio in SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO after breakfast via transport company. Return in time to attend the town processional at 5pm
Sept. 30th: Morning check out with transport to Rome International Airport, for those leaving Italy. Your minibus transport is included in your retreat package back to Rome. We will explore the Basilica and the underground cave where Archangel has said to have appeared on several occasions.
“I am Michael the Archangel and am always in the presence of God. The cave is sacred to me and is of my special choosing…where the rocks open widely the sins of mankind may be released…that which is asked here in prayer will be granted. This is a special house of God, in which all sin may be cleansed, because this heavenly place is founded by angels.”
In September, summer comes to an end bringing relief from the heat in most parts of Italy, September has become one of the most popular months to visit Italy. On the East coast of Italy lies one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations in Italy. It attracts visitors from around the world–The shrine of Padre Pio, possibly the most famous Saint of the century, whose body is kept here. Padre Pio was famous worldwide for his stigmata, his mystical miracles and his emphasis on prayer. He communicated with angels frequently. (About twenty five years ago, Michael told me to study St. Francis and Padre Pio as part of my early spiritual learning.)

If a tour is canceled due to lack of participation, Healing Enterprises, LLC will provide a full refund. Healing Enterprisesf LLC is not responsible for any airline tickets purchased ahead of time and thereby, purchasing travel insurance is mandatory.
Medical Insurance is not provided/included. Attendees are required to have coverage for medical & travelers insurance. Attendees are advised to check on travel insurance with your medical provider, airline or travel agent. Here is a good link to learn more about travel insurance.
We will have two pre trip webinars to build group harmony and establish our intent for the journey. We ask that all attendees participate in these. We also ask that all attendees return the personal-profile’ information which will be sent to you upon registration to allow us to all ‘get to know’ one another before the trip.
As described in the terms, the initial deposit and full payment are nonrefundable. That is because we are required to pay a considerable percentage in advance for the trip, on initial registration and this payment is nonrefundable to us. Commitment is then a major part of this very special pilgrimage. In the event of illness, accident or any scenario in which someone cannot go after remitting the full payment, please be fully aware that while there are no refunds, you may sell your trip package to someone else…but you will be responsible for finding the other person. We will assist in this process where we can, but the actual selling of your package will be between you and the new attendee. Please also note that there will be an applicable transfer fee of $350 dollars payable to Healing Enterprises LLC in order to process the hotel changes in the event you sell your trip for any reason.
We do absolutely require the Registration Form with passport information and travel waivers be signed and received from each attendee. You cannot attend the pilgrimage if these are not received. All trip deposits and payments are in USD only as we are required to pay for the hotels, transport etc in USD.
We strongly recommend you to arrive in Rome or wherever you are arriving, 1 or 2 days early. This provides several advantages, providing a safety margin in case of flight delays or cancellation, time to recover any lost baggage, and time to adjust to jet lag and time differences. In the event that the currency exchange rate falls below 0.85 Euros to $1 USD, I reserve the right to review the retreat fees due.
Spero di vederti in Italia!
