Your cultural & spiritual guides, Indigo and Hope, will use music and rhythm, story and ritual to guide you with intention through your divine inner journey as well as the outer landscape of Egypt, meeting the people of the present and the goddesses and gods of old. In addition to sacred time spent in the temples and monuments, we will have the opportunity to meet with local musicians to engage in musical cross-cultural collaboration. As we, together with those who are called to join us, co-create this sacred passage, we will deepen our understanding of who we are, what we are here to do, and our place within the history of humanity's evolving spirit. We will enter into a rich archetypal process that will reconnect you with your sacred purpose.
Indigo and Hope will bring you along the River Nile, through this ancient Egyptian land, rich with tradition and sacred connection. The temples and monuments of Egypt have an amazing capacity to evoke powerful experiences for any person who enters with an open heart and desire to comprehend the deeper meanings and intentions magically infused by the adepts who built them so very long ago.
You will be offered the opportunity to meet and work with the Egyptian pantheon in their homeland while spending 4 nights in Cairo at the Mena House hotel at the foot of the Great Pyramid and 9 nights aboard our luxurious dahabeya (boat) traveling on the Nile between Aswan and Luxor with plenty of opportunity to make music while we sail. This tour includes 3 amazing private visits: to the Sphinx at Sunrise, to the Temple of Isis at Philae, and inside the Great Pyramid at night. These special visits allow us to experience initiations and rites of passage not available to the public.
We look forward to inspiring you on this transformational journey of manifestation as we connect into the wisdom of a time when universal consciousness was as expansive and as unlimited as our true potential. We look forward to co-creating this spiritual, magical, and musical adventure of a lifetime! Now is the time. We are the ones we have been waiting for!
