Our adventure in Egypt begins in the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Giza, where stone meets sky as a testament to one of the greatest civilizations on earth. Here, on the plateau of Giza, 2,300,000 blocks of stone, some weighing as much as 9 tons, were used to build an eternal tomb for a divine king. The shear grandness of these structures and monuments is breathtaking and the history amazing. Even if we wanted to we could not build a structure like the Great Pyramid or even the Temple of Luxor!
During our journey we will dream our own spiritual transcendence just as the ancient initiates did thousands of years ago. As we walk within the footsteps of those before us with each step we come to know who we really are. We know our birthright and the eternal divinity that exists within us.
On this sacred journey we have the opportunity on this journey to be in the presence of sacred space designed for the purpose of spiritual alignment. Private time in the Great Pyramid will be one of the highlights of this journey. Join us as we share in the magic and mystery of these powerful places and in saying, "YES" to life and the experience of your transcendence.
We are blessed to have a wonderfully knowledgeable Egyptologist with us on our journey, and he will share his enthusiasm and wisdom of this incredible culture with us. A great way to prepare for this journey is by reading John Anthony West's book, The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt: A Guide to the Sacred Places of Ancient Egypt.
It is not a typical travel book, but instead focuses on the spiritual aspects of these beautiful structures. This knowledge will help you align with the intent of these structures when we are in Egypt. The art, design and proportion of these structures were truly a testament to their religion and devotion to an illuminated consciousness. When these ancient stones speak to us, whispering their mysteries and wonders, we will be ready.
As is typical for a Journeys of the Spirit retreat, you will experience class time daily, time for sharing with the group, reflection and meditation time, and one-on-one personal time with your group leader (along with fun and shopping time too of course!). It is our intent that you return home with an open heart and mind along with the tools you need to make the changes in your life you desire.
