Mystical Catalonia Odyssey Quest

A unique alchemy of tour, retreat, vision quest and spiritual adventure.

October 27 – November 4, 2018

“This is where it all began. This is where I realized how far I could go.”

– Pablo Picasso, referring to Barcelona

Barcelona, capital of Catalonia, is a city of possibility, of creativity, of renewal. Just as the doors of possibility opened for Picasso in this beautifully grand city, there is a promise awaiting your arrival.

Here, in the northeastern corner of Spain, lies one of the most powerful spiritual portals in Europe.

Catalonia and her people encourage, nurture, and create beauty, whether physical, spiritual, or transcendent. Picasso, Gaudí, Dalí, Tapies, and Miró are a few of the culture’s many courageous creative beings who’ve reshaped our vision of the world.

Her people masterfully do what we are meant to do—write our own life’s adventure from the infinite perspective of our soul’s vision, rather than from the illusory perspective of limitation.

“Originality, is returning to the origin.”

― Antoni Gaudí

The Odyssey Quest will merge very powerful energies to answer the question that has brought you to this point—“Who am I and what was I made for?”

What energies?: The legendary El Camino de Santiago pilgrimage; the sacred, empowering, other-worldly majesty of the mountain top monastery of Montserrat; the passion and brilliance of Barcelona; and most importantly, your soul’s yearning to bring your myth to life.

Is your heart calling out for more? Do you feel you have a mission, a destiny, a calling? Are you longing for adventure?

. . . NOW is the time to step forward, discover the depths of who you are, and bless the world with the gifts you came to bring.

Barcelona, Catalonia and Montserrat

are the PERFECT places to discover what you’re looking for…

All you need to do is to say “YES! I’m ready!

Join us on the Mystical Catalonia Odyssey Quest as we guide you to discover and actualize your own deepest desires, and begin living the life you were meant to live.

As part of our soul’s story, my Odyssey Quest co-creator and I were instructed by the renowned Black Madonna of Montserrat, the Patroness of Catalonia, to create this profoundly life-changing experience …

… and offer you the opportunity to not only experience your soul’s vision, but to express it by rewriting your story from that new perspective.

Join us as we answer the call. Come embark upon this sacred match-making mission, aligning and empowering our souls with Divine Energy’s intention for each of us individually.

Our Odyssey Quest is structured to ensure you will be deeply fulfilled through reconnecting with your power and purpose as it reveals itself through the sacred adventure we take together.

Each day’s experiences will provide opportunities for soul-evolving shifts, through meditations, deep interactions with nature and mystic places, ceremonies, creating personal talismans, and daily numerological, astrological and Tarot readings as we reconnect ourselves to the sacredness of life with grace, glee, solemnity, and wonder.

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”

― Rumi

So why should you join us?

The Odyssey Quest is the PERFECT opportunity to discover your Authentic Self and connect with the purpose of your life.

Each destination and event has been carefully designed and chosen to give you extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that will leave your life transformed.

As you discover and learn how to move, step by step, into the life that was created for you, your insights and experiences will inform and bless every day of the rest of your life.

We’ll be exploring the most amazing sites, eating delicious food, and taking care of ourselves on so many wondrous levels, as we rediscover having fun and creating magic!

“All those stories you’ve read … about heroines and heroes, epic adventures, discovering their treasure, returning as transformed people … that’s YOUR story. Let’s do it!”

– Daniel Piatek

“Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.”

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

The Venue

Catalonia is a land where freely expressing who you truly are pulsates in her people’s blood and permeates her lands.

Our Odyssey Quest through this mystical land goes beyond the usual tourist track. With grace and elegance guiding our souls we’ll travel in chauffeur-driven coaches, participate in soul-evolving ceremonies and workshops, discover deeper parts of ourselves, and have plenty of free time to relax, shop and just simply be.

Catalonia perfectly provides the container and backdrop for a profoundly joyous journey of self-discovery and self-actualization.

About the Mystical Catalonia Odyssey Quest

We’ll begin our adventure in the beautiful, eclectic city of Barcelona, home of the magnificent architecture of Antoni Gaudí, and the birthplace of the Modernist Movement.

From Barcelona, we’ll make our way to the mountain vortex of Cap de Creus, the eastern-most point of Catalonia overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, where we’ll invoke the power of the five directions and initiate our epic adventure.

We will continue to Cadaques and tour the home of the talented master of Spanish surrealism, Salvador Dalí, where we will engage with his creative spirit. Here, in this lovely seaside village, we’ll begin to notice that our soul’s story is opening up to us!

The next day we’ll experience the liberating effects of exploring the official Salvador Dalí Museum in his home town of Figueres. This visit will perform an immediate and powerful “re-set” on the way you view your life and possibility!

After lunch we’ll make our way to the medieval village of Besalú, where the village Spirit Guides promised Daniel: “We will provide a place for your group to play, adventure, and explore!

The following day, making our way to the legendary El Camino de Santiago, we’ll stop in Zona Volcànica to explore Fageda d’en Jordá – a beautiful, enchanted forest where your spirit guides and totems will come to meet you through a special, empowering ceremony.

After reveling in a traditional Catalan lunch, we’ll move on to one of the most profound experiences of our Odyssey Quest—walking a portion of the mystical pilgrim’s path, El Camino de Santiago.

Continually traveled for over two millennia (possibly much longer), pilgrims of all faiths have walked the sacred Camino for many reasons, two of them being connecting directly and personally with Divine Spirit, and restoring your faith in yourself.

Later we’ll ascend, either by taking the cable car, the gondola, or staying on the coach, to the majestic mountain top Monastery at Montserrat (the traditional ending point of the Camino de Sant Jaume).

In this exalted place we’ll spend the next two days and nights in a conscious, altered state of being, communing and bonding with our Higher Selves and our Spirit Guides.

There we will meet the Black Madonna and possibly receive a message from her; we’ll visit the most beautiful cathedral in the world and sit in the special pew that not only knows your soul’s history but can reveal it to you; we’ll walk the Way of the Votives where our prayers will be amplified and answered; and, if we choose to, we’ll interact with other sacred beings in residence.

And we’ll have plenty of free time, too. In addition to other amenities, attractions, restaurants, and shops, Montserrat has a world class art museum on site, hiking trails to explore, profound other-worldly energy, and beautiful views. Click here to read more about our inspirational visit to the monastery.

Having had so much happen for us, we will leave Montserrat and make our way back to Barcelona, where we’ll tour the city’s most well-known landmark, Gaudí’s magnificent modernist cathedral, La Sagrada Familia. Begun in 1882, and still under construction, it’s a stunning pronouncement of Catalan vision and dedication. After a special lunch, we’ll have free time to explore the city on our own (there is so much to see!) and reflect on all of our experiences. On our last night in Barcelona, we’ll gather together in one of the city’s most celebrated restaurants for a festive farewell dinner and celebration.

We will continue to Cadaques and tour the home of the Master of Spanish Surrealism, Salvador Dalí, where we will continue our basking in the energy of creativity.

For the remainder of the day there will be plenty of time to explore this enchanting Mediterranean village, as we begin to notice that our soul’s story is opening up to us.

Your Guides

From the outer world, we guide you to the inner world where you will discover and reclaim the power, beauty, and magic of your life’s purpose and soul’s intention. And then from the inner world, guide you back out to the outer world, where you can live in the fullness of that divine knowledge and awakened spirit.

Socrates said, “Know Thyself.” Not bad, philosophically speaking. However, we’ll go beyond that and teach you how to “TRUST Thyself” so you can “Know Thyself” and “BE Thyself”. Now that’s the whole story!

Daniel Piatek serves as a catalyst and guide for others to discover their Authentic Selves and create their Authentic Lives. Daniel has walked this path continually over the past 30 years, experiencing profound life changes as his connection with, and ability to transmit, Spirit continues to grow and evolve.

Combining his own life experience with real-time, directed guidance from Spirit, Daniel loves teaching people how to find their own way to actualizing the life they came to live, inspiring them to keep moving forward, and guiding them to stay on track.

He has developed “The Hero’s Quest” process—a conscious, purposeful, joyous, and committed engagement with the Forces in the Universe to become who you were meant to be and live the life you came to live.

Sheilaa Hite’s life is an ever changing, soul evolving, joy-filled, transformational odyssey and when you accompany her on a journey like this—your life changes! Join her and share in her magic as you discover your own!

As the person who coined the phrase and wrote the book, The Spiritual Hedonist, Sheilaa knows the different ways of consciously choosing to live a life of class, grace, and soul awareness. As a result, she understands that Spiritual Wisdom can only come about if you’re able to fully experience life, through the fun, creativity, and joy of connecting to your senses.

Sheilaa is one of only a handful of people in the world permitted by the British government to enter and conduct ceremonies in the sacred ‘inner circle of stones’ in Stonehenge, as well as being the first metaphysician authorized by the city of Malibu, California to teach in their facilities. When she says, “Life is a journey; I know the route,” she truly means it.

Is This For Me?

I would say this to anyone considering taking a spiritual journey with you: “Imagine an opportunity to journey with a group of kindred spirits, take in the soul and spirit of a country, and find your own personal connection, past or present to a magical and sacred land. With special attention to detail, the amazing contribution of two wonderful guides who appreciate the history, the sacred spaces and the magic of their country and fully share that with you and your guiding hand, this journey will surpass expectations. I recommend this to others without reservation.”    -Carolyn S., New York

 

When I think about my experiences working with Daniel, words such as transformation, deep healing, respect, passion, and new tangible possibilities come to my mind. I am always amazed about his natural intuitive abilities and accuracy when he enters the energy field of people.   -Sergi Aynó, Barcelona, Spain

 

You did an excellent job!! The invocation, New Moon Ceremony, and evening meetings were amazing. Thanks for taking me on the adventure of a lifetime!! With you as our Odyssey leader and guide, I had an enlightening and joyful experience. I feel blessed to have made the trip with my fellow pilgrims and you. Together we embraced the beauty, mystery and splendor.   -Patti K, New York

The Odyssey more than lived up to my expectations– reading it on paper was nothing compared to the experience of living it! I enjoyed the evening talks and pulling the Card and Word of the Day. You brought a world of beauty and wonder to my life! Not used to having my travel time scheduled so tightly and having never done a group trip before I was very pleasantly surprised by the peace of mind this provided. It was great to just go with the flow of the day since someone else planned it all out for me! When I heard of this trip, the Universe just wouldn’t let me ignore it, so, I made it happen! You did an amazing job putting this all together for us!  Thank you!  -Carol H., Connecticut

Anytime I know Sheilaa Hite is creating/leading an event, I want to be there! The Odyssey experience was phenomenal. It offered an amazing opportunity for connection, discovery and appreciating the beauty, majesty and sacred aspects of the places we visited. The care and detail that went into creating it was evident in how everything transpired. The amazing places we visited, the beauty of the surroundings, the connection between members of the group, the after-dinner meetings– all made the experience rich, rewarding and memorable. Your presence throughout ensured that this wasn’t simply ‘another trip’– it was more an opportunity for a shift in consciousness and thinking, beautifully orchestrated by a loving spirit whose dedication to enriching the lives of people everywhere speaks volumes about who you are as a spiritual teacher and guide.  Simply, the Divine in action!           -David N., England

“Daniel is remarkably intuitive. He has often seen something beneath the surface of my own awareness that was beckoning to emerge. It’s hard to estimate the value Daniel’s guidance has had for me. He is a deeply insightful and special person, and for his presence in my life I shall be forever grateful.”  -D.G., Canary Islands
