Self-Empowerment & Longevity Retreat with Archangel Raphael in South France

17-23 October 2023

Lafage, Aude, France

This event has now passed, but please use the contact form to be notified of similar retreats in the future.


The theme of the retreat will be on empowering you to be fully in your power when it comes to your health and wellness on all levels – the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. We will be helping you to step into your power, to activate your gifts on a soul level – the things you know already about yourself – helping you to clear away fears and doubts, perhaps negative life experiences, which have taken you away from your power and sovereignty.

We will also be working on very deep-seated beliefs that you may be holding, things that you may have been taught by others and taken for granted – beliefs about health and healing, longevity, what it really means to be on the Earth and have a good life and be well – working with these beliefs and bringing in new energies, new information about what it really means to be on the Earth plane and be living a healthy life; clearing away anything that has been coming in from old times; bringing in new information that is helpful to know so that you are able to navigate your everyday life with ease; knowing what is right for you, and knowing what works for you.

And finally, we are also going to focus on helping you on a personal level when it comes to you challenges – so there will be time to be with each person and talk to them about what is going on in their lives when it comes to wellness. So each person will have some personal time with Archangel Raphael, and they will support you on your journey to full wellness.

from Frank Albrecht:

Most of us have understood that contemporary medicine is a purely capitalistic venture and does not serve anyone to heal but rather suppresses symptoms and creates life-long patients. In high cultures of the past, the study of health and healing was anchored in each families life’s and doctors where rarely necessary as each individual had some natural understanding of health and healing. Now, in the Kali Yuga we have lost most of the essential knowledge about life, of the inner nature of our being as well as true knowledge about healing and medicine.

In this retreat we focus on the higher, divine laws of life and healing and immerse ourselves in a deeper understanding of health, healing and longevity that is presently showcased by science and media. We look at nutrition and longevity from a scientific, metaphysical and spiritual perspective, including modern research and ancient tradition. During these 5 days we will learn to comprehend the processes of regeneration and degeneration in the living human system in more detail, which will enable us not just to understand our own healing process, but also to make the necessary changes in our life and diet. To enforce our own healing and the reconnection with higher knowledge, we practice meditation, Agni Hotra (ancient vedic Homa therapy), and chanting mantras & heart songs. To create a joyful time together we will also do some free dance to sacred music -for those who wish.

About the retreat

Our retreat combines the inspiration that is derived from opening your horizons to new possibilities and reintegrating sacred knowledge about life itself – with deeper inner clearing work through Jabeen & Archangel Raphael’s session and meditation. Many ancient texts suggest that a very, very long time ago, man knew no diseases and reached an age that is unimaginable to us today. How did people live at that time, what natural processes did they know that enabled them to live in this way and which have been forgotten today? During these 5 days we go on a journey to find the answers and how we can apply this knowledge in our own lives, to help us stay well and self-heal.

During 3 hours every day we go through the theoretical part: we will look at all those factors of degeneration and regeneration of living beings – that is, all that leads us humans to become ill and to age accelerated (our true potential would be to reach an age of 140 years). This knowledge enables us to comprehend the road from health to disease and back.

Some of the main topics of this retreat:

  • Why all degenerative diseases only develop in an acidic body environment
  • Raw or cooked food, food combination, fasting and purification
  • Which food supplements and when
  • What role do vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins play in the diet?
  • Life energy and the function of the etheric body for the regeneration of living systems
  • How electromagnetic and geopathic stress cause cellular degeneration and disease and how we can counteract this
  • What are the causes of degenerative diseases such as Cancer, Alzheimer‘s, Arthritis, Diabetes and others?
  • Spiritual causes of depression and mental illness in general.
  • The chakras as “body-soul interface” and their role in healing and health
  • What to consider in any therapy
  • Water as the substance of life – how we can purify and energise it
  • The role of parasites in all degenerative diseases and how to avoid them
  • What is the role of meditation and spiritual practices?
  • Understand in detail how a healing process works – the personal and environmental factors
  • The role of trauma, how it leads to separation of soul fragments & how to heal and reintegrate them
  • The role of family and ancestors

Every evening we will come together for a singing circle, soul dance or a sound healing session with Ivan.
