Florence’s churches and museums contain an amazing amount of artwork that is encoded with deep secrets through symbology of the human soul journey and transformation.
Our visit to Florence will take us to the Neo-Gothic Franciscan church, Basilica di Santa Croce, the largest Franciscan church in the world. The Santa Croce Basilica has survived more than seven centuries of history and has a profound artistic and cultural heritage that has contributed to its status as one of the best-loved and most frequently visited sacred sites in Florence.
This magnificent church contains sixteen chapels, many of which are decorated with frescoes by the master artist Giotto and his pupils. Giotto’s highly influential works illustrate the great expressiveness and profound humanity that was captured by this revolutionary artist and painted into his sacred stories.
In the Peruzzi chapel, we will find scenes from the life of John the Baptist and John the Evangelist. In the Bardi chapel, we will encounter frescoes that tell stories from the life of St. Francis. Legend says that Santa Croce was founded by St. Francis himself.
The church is also notable for its tombs and cenotaphs; it houses the tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, and many other significant historical figures. Santa Croce contains the remains of more Renaissance masters than any other single church in Italy.
Our time at the Basilica di Santa Croce is sure to be transformational for those who are there to encounter the energies of the many influential and inspirational individuals who left their mark on history.
Join us in Florence this fall to experience the works of Giotto and his pupils, and pay homage to those whose final resting places are housed within, as we explore this mystical place that is truly unlike any other.
Journey with us to the medieval city of Siena, known for the Palio, the Palazzo Pubblico, and the Duomo, Siena’s beautiful Gothic cathedral. The 14th century Duomo is a Piasan-influenced Romanesque-Gothic church containing masterpieces by Donatello, Michelangelo, Pisano and Pinturicchio. The Duomo was built on top of a pagan temple dedicated to the goddess Minerva. It is filled with wonderful treasures. The baptistery contains amazing frescoes and a font created by Donatello, and inside the main nave there is an inlaid marble floor with 56 square slabs, each depicting a scene that tells a story. These masterful and inspiring creations date from 1349 to 1547 and were created by different artists, almost all of whom were from Siena.
Precious wonders await us in Siena as we explore the beautiful Tuscan countryside; it is an enchanted land calling us to awaken to higher levels of awareness on our journey through sacred Italy. Join me as I help us unravel the many mysteries we will experience in this sacred place.
Travel with us to experience the shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia, the Patron Saint of the Impossible, where her body has remained incorrupt and is venerated to this day. Saint Rita is also the saint who appeared to John of God when he was only eight years old.
Cascia is situated in the beautiful green hills of Umbria, about 60 miles north of Rome. This small town is known for its association with Saint Rita.
Many people travel from all over the world each year to Cascia, to pay homage to Saint Rita and experience the mysticism of her final resting place, where many ongoing miracles are reported to have occurred. The Basilica of Saint Rita contains beautiful artwork on the walls and ceiling, and houses important relics including the very Crucifix from which she received the Stigmata.
Cascia is an amazing place that will touch our hearts as we quest Sacred Italy. I invite you to witness and experience all that Cascia has to offer.
Welcome to the splendor and majesty of Rome as we quest and experience the Sistine Chapel, the Forum, Santa Maria Antiqua, the Colosseum, St. Mary Maggiore, and much more! Rome is a truly ancient sacred land, unparalleled in historical richness with its abundance of awe-inspiring art and treasures.
The Pantheon, built by Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century, was a temple to all the Gods. It was converted into a church in 609 and is the lowest point in Rome today. The oculus, or eye, of the Pantheon is the only source of light inside the temple, and symbolizes the connection between the temple and the gods above.

The Basilica of St. Mary Maggiore contains treasures of inestimable value. It was built over an ancient Temple of Minerva, the Goddess of Wisdom, just around the corner from the Pantheon. It was founded in 352 following an unprecedented snowfall in the month of August that was predicted by a vision of the Virgin Mary, and houses a Black Madonna which offers visitors the opportunity to share in some extraordinary experiences.
Inside the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore
The Basilica of Saint Clemente descends through three layers of history from the 12th century church to an altar of Mithras. The amazing and unique archaeology of this Basilica records the history of Rome from the beginning of Christianity to the Middle Ages.

Venice is known as the most romantic city in the world. Imagine taking a gondola ride through narrow canals, surrounded by historic and inspiring scenery. The sights and sounds of Venice are mesmerizing, and it’s not hard to see why so many fall in love with this mystical and beautiful place.
Venice is made up of over 100 small islands in the Adriatic Sea. Known as “the floating city”, the name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who inhabited the region by the 10th century BCE.
On our Sacred Tour of Italy, we will spend time visiting many of the ancient and modern-day sites that people come from all over the world to see, including Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Cathedral, and more. Our time in Venice will be a once in a lifetime experience that we will share along our Sacred Tour of Italy.

We will also pay homage to Saint Clare at Santa Chiara and walk the surrounding beautiful, bird-filled garden.

Wesak is the most Important Spiritual Festival of the year.
“The Month of May is one of deepest significance to all who are affiliated with the Great White Lodge, the Wesak Festival takes place and is a moment of deep spiritual importance. A time of great importance and opportunity.”
In the spiritual year, the first three spiritual festivals of the year, Aries, Taurus, and Gemini, can never be emphasized enough, although to personally experience them, one must probe their significance through reflection upon these signs and meditation. Taurus marks the high-water mark of the spiritual year because of those Liberated Beings who guide Humanity, who meet in yearly conclave and connect with their ashrams and disciples more closely than at any other time.
Taurus-Wesak is the highlight of the spiritual year because of the alignment that takes place between our most exalted planetary guides and humanity. The triangle of Buddha, Christ, and Sanat Kumara – linked in sacred ritual with the assembled Masters of Wisdom – in turn, aligned with their respective ray ashrams of human aspirants, disciples and initiates, all poised and ready to anchor the new impulse issued in the previous month of Aries; this is a potent visualization in meditation.
Wesak is important because it is the only time of the year that the Buddha re-connects with this planet, almost liberated from his responsibilities here, but still serving an important role in this transition phase between the two zodiacal ages and the root races.
