Egypt is one of the most magical destinations on the planet.

Being in Egypt immerses you in the realm of infinite possibilities, the veils are thinner, your connection to your full potential more accessible and your heart opens more easily. Your pilgrimage through Egypt is a process of conscious evolution, one that can be classified as an ascension spiral into the open heart. As you, the initiate journey through the sacred sites in Egypt you unlock and access energy, consciousness and wisdom, which aligns you with your soul, your inner being, your divine self, your full potential and you and your life are forever changed for the better. This process is one of renewal, transformation, personal growth and expansion. Join us in May 2010 for this heart-opening, awakening and enlightening journey through Egypt. The possibilities are infinite, what will you create in Egypt?

Imagine yourself between the paws of the Sphinx setting powerful intentions, at Isis's temple on Philae opening your heart to unconditional love, at Sekhmet's chapel accessing courage and power to be your authentic self. Activate Egypt's magic in an exclusive visit of the Great Pyramid. Integrate and luxuriate in 5-star accommodations. Learn about Egypt's history, culture and art through our world renowned Egyptologist. Receive ongoing support during this journey to integrate the powerful experiences through group circles, preparation lectures, energy work, sound-healing and mind-body-spirit integration.

There is one more reason why this journey will be very special:

"The Afandina"

AfandinaThanks to Mohamed Nazmy, the owner of Quest Travel, we are extremely fortunate that we were offered to sail down the Nile with a "Dahabia," a privately chartered luxurious sailing yacht, on this upcoming trip—and we don't know, when or if it will be available to us again. Sailing on a "Dahabia" is like traveling in your own private palace. You are closely connected to the Nile and are able to stop and explore the Egypt off the beaten track of the tourist. The boat fits a group of 16 people, it has 2 sundecks, an air-conditioned dinning room and library. All the cabins have air-condition and a private bathroom with shower. And the food that is prepared for us daily by the wonderful crew rivals any gourmet restaurant. Sailing on a Dahabia is very special opportunity and allows us to learn to know and appreciate Egypt in a unique and personal way.

Note: To enhance your experience, the size of this group is limited to 16 people. Please register early, either by signing up for the trip (below) or contacting the office with your trip deposit.
