About Dr. Joan Borysenko:

How did a Harvard trained medical scientist become a mystic? In reality, it was the other way around. At the age of 10, Joan experienced 6 months of an alternate reality, what modern psychiatry would label psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder. One day, while praying fervently for help, all fear and confusion parted to reveal a luminous reality of exquisite love, surpassing peace, and practical wisdom that guided her to an almost instantaneous recovery. Her journey to hell and back birthed a lifelong fascination with healing, the roots of consciousness, and the realm of Spirit. Weaving together biology, psychology, and spirituality in a credible, accessible way is her soul's purpose.

Joan's doctorate is from the Harvard Medical School where she subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in cancer cell biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and behavioral medicine. In 1987, her New York Times bestseller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind (revised in 2007 for it's 20 year anniversary edition) described the program of mental and physical healing that she and her colleagues pioneered at a leading Boston hospital. She has authored or co-authored a dozen other books about healing, inner peace, and the spiritual journey, along with numerous audio programs and guided meditation CD's. Joan is also a licensed psychologist, a journalist, a renowned inspirational speaker, and a television personality.

Her lifelong interest in mysticism and the world's religions culminated in co-founding The Claritas (Latin for clarity and illumination) Institute for Interspiritual Inquiry with her husband, organizational psychologist Gordon Dveirin, Ed.D. The Institute has programs to train spiritual mentors, offers spiritual guidance to individuals and corporations, and hosts seminars and retreats. Website:

Comments from Nicki's Equinox 2009 Journey to Egypt with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey

From Beth Stanford, Hayward, CA: I am still brimming over with gratitude and light, and expect to be integrating for months if not years. We went to a party with many dear friends last evening, and although extremely jet lagged, I found myself spilling out tales of our sacred travels. I cherish the special tribe that we created together almost instantly.

From Lori Stargrove, Portland, OR: I am slowly coming down from an all encompassing WOW state! words like amazing, outrageous, fabulous seem to be my favorite adjectives... I am so thankful for this life changing experience. I didn't know I would fall in love with Egypt, but I did and in a big way.

Auntie-Up (Martha-Lee), Gulfport, MS: I am ever so grateful for the abundant blessing sharing the time and place; thoughts and feelings; love and light with all y'all...

More Testimonials…

Please join Nicki Scully and Joan Borysenko, PhD for the Shamanic Journeys, Ltd. Autumn 2010 pilgrimage to Egypt.

Joan Borysenko, one of the original vanguards of integrative medicine and the mind/body connection, is the best-selling author of thirteen books. With her heart-centered presence, her renowned wisdom and wit, and her vast knowledge of medicine, metaphysics, spirituality, and alternative forms of healing, she provides an eloquent compliment to Nicki's expertise in Egypt, her experience in guiding tours, and the wealth of knowledge she has gathered over the past 30+ years of exploring Egypt. While Nicki is highly respected as an author, healer and practitioner of the shamanic arts, her great love is Egypt, and her books, CDs and teachings reflect her passionate immersion in Egypt's mysteries.

Nicki and Joan are creating a program that offers opportunities for deep reflection, transformation, and spontaneous healing as you travel the Nile in the comfort of our group bubble. You will be cared for and supported along the way with sharing circles, lectures and discussions, including a caring staff to make sure that both your physical and spiritual needs are met.

The monuments of Egypt are unsurpassed for spiritual Rites of Passage and Initiations into higher levels of consciousness. The great goddess Isis traveled throughout Egypt searching for the lost and scattered parts of her murdered husband, Osiris. At every place a part was found, a temple was erected in his honor until Osiris was fully re-membered. During our pilgrimage, we will visit many of those ancient sacred sites and reclaim the fragmented parts of ourselves.

Imagine your first morning in Egypt: Our group enters the Great Pyramid complex in the pre-dawn quiet, and proceeds to an ancient temple at the base of the second pyramid. Our field of vision includes the Great Pyramid, the Sphinx, and Cairo spread out below. As the sky brightens and the warm glow of sunrise lights the mist in the east, you can hear the city awaken. When the sun has risen, but long before the plateau is open to tourists, we enter the Sphinx enclosure (a great privilege not available to the public) and stand between the paws of that enigmatic guardian of the mysteries, and experience the first of many ceremonies.

There is no place like Egypt, and no doorway into her mysteries like the one we will enter together.
