Banyen's Description: 

The true-life memoir Patrice Chaplin began in City of Secrets continues here in The Portal—the story of her spiritual initiation into the Kabbalistic tradition preserved since the Middle Ages in the pre-Roman city of Girona, Spain. Salvador Dalí was a member of that society charged with protecting esoteric information, as was the renowned author Umberto Eco, the filmmaker Jean Cocteau, and Jancint Verdeguer, one of the most celebrated Catalan poets. Importantly, so was the mysterious Berenger Sauniere, the priest who in the late 1800s built Rennes-le-Château in southern France, with the Tour Magdala, a tower that is twin to the neo-gothic tower in Girona.

The author, daughter-in-law of legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin, and a guide, a mysterious recluse and one of the few true living Kabbalists, traverse cities and landmarks in southern France and northern Spain that fall on energy-rich ley lines—geographic locations that resonate with mystical force. One stop is Rennes-le-Château, the small French church popular with speculative historians of the Holy Grail. Chaplin’s journey is an initiation into the Holy Grail’s deeper mystery and involves fasting, chanting, and a psychic baptism. Reading like the adventures of a female Castenada, Chaplin is led through a series of initiatory stages which correspond to the magical square of Venus, containing the constellation of the Great Bear. What she discovers in the end is what it is to be human, and to be “of” this earth. The mystery of our origins has been imprinted upon our planet from time immemorial. The time for us to remember has come; this journey is now a gift for everyone.
