Welcome to The Night the Stars Danced.

In the Netherlands the book already has a large group of fans!

Now the English translation is available!

Discover why some Dutch readers say: Buy this book! It is a revelation!!!!!!!!!”

For over three years, Shantah worked on The Night the Stars Danced. It
has been a massive undertaking, but it finally feels good. Finally,
the mirror is polished. What she wanted to say, she has said.
“In my opinion, we have totally gone off track, and the real
questions of life are pushed to the background of our
consciousness. In The Night The Stars Danced I have tried
to put light on some of our societal values and standards, and that
hopefully, will contribute to our insights regarding the broadening
of some of the many issues of today.
Every person that reads this is a part of society, and has the ability
to contribute to achieving a society that is based on complete
respect for the individual. Because everyone, in my experience, is
a little piece of the Light captured.
Intuitively, searching for the truth about myself, I started writing
a letter to my son.
Writing The Night the Stars Danced has changed my perspective
on life in so many ways. Not in the least because I know now –
how crazy it may sound – that I have lived here, in the past. And I
would love to return here. In the future. In this cosmic miracle.
But how will live be in 50, 100 or 200 years? We have lived here
for about 300,000 years; 200 years in our evolution means
“tomorrow.”
Never before had I been thinking about the distant future, but now
it’s my focus.
We owe our existence because we can think. I think it is time that
we evolve; think differently. It is time for the Homo sapiens 2.0.
So that hopefully sometime in the future – preferably before
“tomorrow” – we will live here together in freedom, abandunce, respect, peace and love.
Living without fear, full of love, trust, caring, honesty, integrity,
spontaneity, honesty, openness, with understanding, appreciation
and acceptance, but also forgiveness for everyone and everything.
A life without dogma, a life without shame. Live in unity and
total freedom…
Because we will realize that we can turn this cosmic Paradise,
into Heaven or into Hell.
80% of the proceeds from The Night the Stars Danced I donate to
that change.
Last but not least, I want to thank Delilah Matrix and Claudia
Ravn. They have done a tremendous job translating and editing
from Dutch to English. They have made it into what it ultimately
has become. Thank you so much!”

Shantah.

October 2005. The life of Paul Janssen changes completely when he travels to southern France where he gets in contact with a distant soulmate in a vision. It is a woman who used to live there about 1,000 years ago. She invites him to go with her, back in time, to 1145, so that Paul can see for himself how different life was. A world opens up to him when he agrees, he discovers Occitania, the land where dissidents, the Cathars lived …

What a book!!! I read it, and what an impression it made on me! I borrowed the book from a friend of mine and would love to have it. We are ‘aware’ of a life in Love and Light, without judgments and letting go of opinions. Of course this is not quite possible yet but the book has made me even more aware of such a life and I have a feeling of homesickness. In Love and Light….Anja

This book shows another way! It bears witness to a large portion of thought. The Night that the Stars Danced can compete with the Celestine Prophecy!

Ook ik leef in een ander wereld en heb altijd geweten dat deze wereld anders is en kán! Als we het maar weten en willen! Ik kwam thuis toen jij het woord “andersdenkend” gebruikte.
Helaas wordt je in deze wereld snel voor gek versleten, maar dat heb ik inmiddels geaccepteerd..:)

My admiration for this book is enormous and I have received much confirmation in my way of thinking that it can be done differently. For me it is now even clearer than before, that in a world without jealousy and envy there will be much more joy AND love. Love in every conceivable form. Let's step into this new world together!

It’s a book with a lot of passion and you notice that as soon as you start to read it, it touches you, it touches you and I think that everyone who will read this book will look at the world differently. It is a book you would like to share with the people around you who are dear to you. The book touched me in a way I didn’t expect it to. I can tell you more about the book but actually I think you should read it yourself and will be touched by this great book. to the writer Chantal Alais I would like to say that I hope she will definitely continue to write and I really enjoyed your beautiful first debut!

I didn’t feel like I was reading a book, I felt like I was experiencing a part of my life in a different time and space. I laughed, weeped, felt itchy, had flashbacks….. Thank you for writing down all this beauty and wanting to share it in a selfless way. That Light and Love may continue to flow through, through all times loving Patricia.

I read the book in one go! Beautiful story and very compellingly written, just like you experience it yourself!  Buy that book!!!!!!!! It's a revelation!!!!!!! The values and norms of the Cathars confirm what I have felt for a long time in my Being and have now been confirmed, I was also one, because I still think so......

The night that the stars danced, a title comes to life while reading. As by chance I ended up on this website where I read about the book. My curiosity drove me to order the book. I let myself get carried away in the book and was surprised by curiosity and honesty. Through adventure, passion and perseverance. At first sight, the story may seem unrealistic and bizarre. But for those who really believe in higher abilities, it can be a key. The book gives hope to anyone who feels their flame of light burning. The book gives me a feeling of recognition and trust, an absolute must for everyone who is looking for peace, for everyone who believes that everyone is a spark of God. I thank you Chantal, for the beautiful book, for the honesty of your feelings, it touches me deeply and gives me confidence to believe in myself and in others.

A pearl in bookland. Also fragments I laughed about. Hilarious those reactions. But very well written. I can see and experience everything and everyone in front of me. I already promoted it on my three twitter accounts @ I connect @vandermieden and @tweetkind.

The fact that I feel related to the Cathars and the positive appearance of Chantal have invited me to buy this book. I didn’t regret it for a second! Very quickly I was sucked into the story and it seemed as if I was one of the main characters who experienced everything…. The ideas that are clearly expressed in this book, confirm my own feeling of how Love can be….. pure Love, without possessiveness or jealousy, but just letting the other person be who he or she is and enjoy together the Divinity that we all carry in us…Beautiful story, and very well written, without unnecessary fuss about the history around “the battle of the Cathars”, but finally a book that is about the people themselves, their values and norms, but especially the enormous Love that there was among themselves!An absolute must!!

On the website of Ezzulia I read Chantal’s proposal thread, in which she presents herself as a transgender. Partly because of her frankness I was curious about her website and about the novel she had written (The night the stars danced) and brought out by herself. After reading a few reading fragments on her website, I was intrigued. In the beginning I had to get a bit into the story and I didn’t know very well what to expect, but soon the story got me in its grip and I wanted to read on. Chantal writes very compelling and visual which makes it almost seem as if you walk around in 1145 and look through the eyes of Shantah. The Cathars to which Shantah belongs live a very loving life in which they are open to everyone and experience the divinity with whom they want without jealousy. The night the stars danced is an honest story about love, living without jealousy, and opening yourself up. It reads like a fairy tale without getting woolly and I have read it with great pleasure. Thank you for allowing me to read the book! Dear Marieke

A book you must have read! In the book we meet Paul Janssen and his colleague Esther. We go along to a climate congress in southern France. The congress is held in a historic burght. After the congress there is a drink and there is room to have a chat with each other. Paul is rather dull all day, and is going to take a look in the garden of the burght. The night the stars danced is a story of a man, who gets to know his soul mate in a vision. The first few chapters of the book were quite stiff, and it took a while before I got the taste of the book, but once this was done, I didn’t want to put it away anymore. At the same time I did not want to read on, because I did not want to read the book. Not because it was not good, on the contrary. The fact that the last page was getting closer and closer saddened me, I could have added 100 more pages to the book. Shantah takes him to 1145, where we will experience the life of 1145. The night that the stars dance is a story about soul relationship, friendship, the now and accepting people as they are. Not for a moment did I find the long jump from the present to 1145 difficult. The author, Chantal, introduces himself as a transgender. After reading The Night as the stars danced, this surprised me. The message of the book is to leave the people in their worth for who and what they are. Presenting it as a transgender feels like a contradiction to me, because in my opinion this is not relevant at all. for me The night that the stars danced is a book you present to your friends as a precious gift. You want to share the book with the people around you. A book you must have read! Chantal, a more beautiful gift you can not give someone, thanks that I could take a look in your thoughts….

What a wonderful book! It gives a lot of food for thought and I love that. I ordered the book on a whim because the title appealed to me. Your mail made me very curious of course?

The night the stars danced is a story about soul relationship, friendship and love. I would have liked to have lived in 1145, the simplicity, without judgment, enjoying the divinity, exciting from beginning to end. T makes you curious how it ends! Thank you for having received a copy via astrid (astridenmellis.weblog), and success with your next book!

Riet(je)

I read it in one day; it is as if you are in the Efteling in the dream flight. You go all the way back in time to the life of the past, as if you were experiencing it all yourself. The night the stars danced is a pure, honest, moving and compelling story about love, desire and friendship. Chantal, my compliments!

Highly recommended, should not be missing in any holiday suitcase. Delicious book, reads well, gives enrichment to yourself, unleashes your imagination, your dreams....And the thought is it now fantasy or real.... Just buy and read!

In het begin heb ik wat moeite gehad met de wat "springerige" manier van schrijven. Maar oh God wat is dat goed gemaakt. Ik ben er zelfs in de nacht voor opgestaan om door te lezen. Een prachtig verhaal en mooi verteld. Binnen een paar dagen uitgelezen. Jammer dat het boek uit is.

Ik lees veel en heb al veel van dergelijke boeken gelezen, maar jouw boek is heel speciaal. Ik ben geneigd speciale dingen bij me te houden, maar jouw boek gaat de ruilboekenkast weer in, zodat anderen er ook van kunnen genieten. En zodat het zo de grote steen kan bijdragen tot realisatie van de nieuwe wereld.

Ik moet zeggen: jouw persoonlijkheid intrigeert me wel. Wat een zoektocht heb je achter de rug, respect!

Dankjewel!

Al lezende werd ik meegesleurd/ondergedompeld in een wereld zoals die zou kunnen zijn; een wereld van onvoorwaardelijke liefde, licht en passie. Nu, ongeveer een jaar later, merk ik dat jouw boodschap zich heeft verstrengeld met mijn beleving van de wereld. Het was al aanwezig maar ik leef het bewuster.. Als jouw boek zich op deze manier kan verspreiden, door zich te nestelen in het collectieve gedachtegoed en de belevingswereld van mensen, dan dragen we beslist bij aan een toekomst vol liefde.

It is also a story that teaches you to love without jealousy or possessiveness… How beautiful that would be… Chantal has written the story in a loving way, it doesn’t become “floating” anywhere…. On the contrary, we can all learn something from it… And Oh, Chantal…Imagine by John Lennon was already one of my favourite songs, but when I listen to it now I will always think of you, thanks for allowing me to read this book!!

I have read out The night the stars danced in one day. In the beginning I had no idea which way the story would go but at a certain moment the story had me in its grip and I couldn’t put it away anymore. It is a fantastic novel set in the years 2005 and 1145. At the moment the story went back in time I felt like I was stepping back in time. From time to time, I felt like I got to know the characters of the time personally. At the moment I had to put the book aside, Shantah, Beatrice and brother Alfonso stayed in my head and all I can say is that Chantal wrote the night that the stars danced with passion and that this story will stay with me for a long time to come. Chantal, I would like to thank you very much for having been able to read this book and I hope that more stories will follow.

Een regelrechte aanrader, dit boek! Want als we allemaal ‘Anders gaan denken’ worden alle misstanden die onze maatschappij nu nog in z’n greep lijken te houden – zoals ongelijkheid, machtsmisbruik en eigenbelang - binnen afzienbare tijd opgelost en overbodig!!

I could not control my curiosity. So yesterday at the end of the afternoon I sat down in the garden to read and read the book in one go. What a wonderful story! I also have something to do with the region you describe, one of the most beautiful and interesting in terms of history (the Cathars) in France.

Als je de titel leest weet je niet zo goed wat je moet verwachten, maar dat is juist het verrassende van dit boek! Kortom: gewoon lezen dus! De levering verliep ook zeer vlot, niks op aan te merken! Met dank aan schrijver Chantal Holleman!

I have received your book from Peter Willemen, a friend of yours and a very old friend of mine, and it is wonderful to read and experience, recognition there is more between heaven and earth that is also my experience.

I enjoyed your book, besides the fact that it is fun and beautiful to read, I also love how you have brought together certain knowledge and have 'explained' why certain people do not feel at home in this body or life, a must to read and actually I hope for a sequel .... Knuff of me and good luck with this' child 'yours!

Together with a good friend Paul visits an old castle in the South of France, where a symposium on the climate is held. In the beautiful castle garden he gets a vision. He makes contact with a woman from a distant past. Chantah, who turns out to be his soul mate, invites Paul to go back in time, to the year 1145. A time when “the dissidents” lived in harmony with each other and loved each other without jealousy. A time in which you could be yourself without fear and restraint. Paul opens himself up and gets to know this world. While he himself and the people around him notice how he changes, he experiences this world more and more intensely and goes in search of the Truth. I would describe The Night that the Stars Danced as pure. As you read it you feel that it is written with love and dedication. The underlying message is very nicely incorporated in the book. Because of the smooth writing style it is also very easy to read. It is a beautiful book and I enjoyed reading it. Still, the enormous enthusiasm of other readers did not come to me. Because the book is so much applauded in the reviews I have read so far, I had very high expectations. I see this as a somewhat spiritually tinted book and therefore, especially in the beginning perhaps had some difficulty to let myself be taken along in the story. A little later I could surrender more easily to it. All in all I think The Night that the Stars Danced is a good book and certainly worth reading. Chantal, I want to thank you for giving me this opportunity.

It takes you to a world where people loved each other without conditions, it touches on all kinds of life themes and gives you insight, some people looking for their truth, others already live their truth, but above all it gives you a feeling that life is worth living if you know how to open your heart, a fantastic book and unique of its kind, LiefsVincent

Ik, Robin heeft zijn lieve soulmate daisy ontmoet en zij heeft mijn ziel gelezen en mij dit boek gegeven. Ik zei haar wel dat ik bijna niet lees omdat ik dislectiesch ben en dus erg gauw de draad van een tekst kwijt ben.
MAAR:
Toen ik maar net begon in het herhaal werd ik er echt ingezogen en kon mezelf niet meer tegen houden, ik werd geboeid en hield het verhaal vast! Heerlijk gevoel.
Er was ook zoveel herkenning(en gevoel. Het moment van waar het communiceren met gevoel plaats vond wist ik wie ik was. Ik ben een gevoelsmens, maar al lezende ging ik steeds verder open staan. Ik herkende gevoels golven, het oogkontakt welke toegang geeft tot de ziel, dat praten met elkaar eigenlijk alleen een aanvulling is op het gevoel. De goddelijkheid beleven is echt een intens gevoel dat zo mooi is.
Ik herkende ook mijn soulmate. Heel dubbel want mijn soulmate is Daisy en in het boek werd ze Beatrice.
Door de vele herkenningspunten die ik bij mezelf vind werd ik 1 met Shantha en keek door haar ogen naar Beatrice.
Het is een heerlijk verhaal die mij een warm en goed gevoel geeft.
Het laat duidelijk zien wat wij op dit moment als mensen,in het algemeen, op deze wereld missen.
Namelijk gevoel naar elkaar toe.
dank mooie verhaal dat eigenlijk iedereen moet lezen xxx Robin

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

SHANTAH HOLLEMAN
“We live in a cosmic paradise!”

About Shantah

A lot has happened during the past ten years, I could write a book about it. In the summer of 2008 I was talking to several Dutch top-10 publishers, all of them interested in publishing my book, but I decided to develop and sell the book myself, directly via this website.

Naive as I am, I thought it would be pretty simple, because we live in the digital era. I had no idea how difficult it would be. Then I did not realize that I am a pioneer. A sheep that tries to cross the literary dam, because my novel has no ISBN. It is FairTrade.

About me and the book

Before I started writing, I knew little about the Cathars, and during the writing process I got a very strong feeling not to search for information about them on internet, but to follow my feelings.

Afterwards, about 3.5 years later, I was of course very curious about the reactions of “Cathar specialists”. Bram Moerland and a few other specialists turned out to be very interested, and I send them a free copy. A few months later I emailed them several times, even I lieft a message on his phone. But I never received a response. Nothing.

Indirectly I have understood (by what Bram Moerland said in the media) that he is opposed to the ideas. The image I give of the Cathars appears to differ greatly from the “official” image in some respects. But the official picture is based on what the Inquisition wrote down about 1,000 years ago.

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

A few companies control the global mainstream media and the global booktrade. Those (family)companies earn hunderds of millions euros/dollars p.a. while most authors earn little, not enough to pay the bills.

FairTrade is different. As a reader you order the book directly from the author, the author does not use the booktrade system.

Waiting for other authors to join  FairTrade Books.  We can connect our websites, promotion, sales.

The Cathars

According to the Cathar prophecy, the insights of the Cathars will revive 700 years after their extinction. The article appeared in 2012, because it was exactly 700 years ago that the Cathars had been murdered.

The Dutch original – De Nacht dat de STerren Dansten – appeared in 2008. Until Apr. 2017 I have written almost nothing about the Cathar prophecy. I have left it to the readers.

This review says everything:

“I read the book in one go. A beautiful story and very compelling written, as if you experience it yourself. The values and norms of the Cathars confirm what I already felt in my Being and has now been confirmed, I was also one of them, because I still think so. Buy the book! It is a revelation!!!!!!!!!”
