Welcome

Welcome to Sophia Services, please join us in our travels in search of soul as expressed within nature and among humankind.

Amid our bustling lives are hidden doors that can open to experiences that nurture the heart and soul. We will go in search of these nurturing experiences – they can still be found in our present day world. When exploring in lands and cultures different from our own, we can open our senses from the inside out. Come – open some doors with us!

We offer tours in small groups, in search of experiences that touch and nurture the soul. These can occur amid the geography and nature of a land and/or amongst its people and their culture. Experiences of the soul are more likely to be found far away from a bustling metropolis, expensive hotels, TVs and phones. As a consequence, these tours will be relatively low cost while maintaining a basic level of comfort. Experiences will be individual, yet enhanced by exploring with a small group of like-minded people.

Francis of Assisi continues to be one of the most loved and revered people in the history of humanity. He was pronounced a saint by the Roman Catholic Church as long ago as 1228 and is regarded as the patron saint of animals and the environment.

What is it that is so endearing about this simple mendicant from a small town in Italy? Rudolf Steiner held Francis in great esteem and we’ll be studying why as we explore Assisi and the surrounding sites associated with Francis of Assisi.

The Knights Templar are well known for their activities in Jerusalem and the Holy Land in the Middle Ages following the First Crusade. Their demise in 1307 is also well known. What is not so well known is the belief that their activities in Portugal formed a Kingdom of Conscience with laws that are echoed in Rudolf Steiner’s Threefold Social Order.
