Read what a traveler has to say after FOUR TRIPS TO EGYPT WITH SHAMANIC JOURNEYS!

The dahabeya Afandina The Dahabeya Afandina

Join authors, shamanic guides, and priestesses of the Egyptian mysteries, Normandi Ellis and Sandy Corcoran for the journey of a lifetime throughout Ta-Sheme'aw, the land of upper and lower Egypt. We will introduce you to the magic of the neteru, the gods and goddesses who are still palpable and accessible at the sacred sites and ancient temples we will visit. We will dedicate time to write, weaving the personal awareness that comes from our energetic exchange with these Ancient Ones as we walk the Sands of Time.

Awaken to the sight of the Great Pyramids, at the beautiful hotel we have chosen for our time in Cairo. Participate in the magic of nine days of Nile river sunsets and sunrises as we sail on our personal dahabeya (boat), the Afandina. In the evenings we dock where water buffalo graze peacefully and the ibis walks amongst the reeds. It is as if you have traveled back 3000 years in time.

Sunrise between the paws of the SphinxMany special opportunities have been created throughout this spectacular journey. Included are three special private visits—Equinox sunrise between the Sphinx’s paws, sunrise ceremony in the Temple of Isis on the Island of Philae, and a final initiation in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid—all scheduled when the monuments are not open to the public. In addition to these private ritual sites, we will take in many beautiful and still empowered locations, built thousands of years ago, including Saqqara, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, the West Bank of Luxor, Dendera, Abydos, Edfu, Kom Ombo, and Elephantine Island.

At the Cairo Museum, we will see magnificent statues and artifacts of antiquity that once populated the sites we visit. In Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan we walk through the ancient, thriving markets where treasures and special keepsakes can be found. Additionally, we may stop and visit a village along our sail!

In this journey of spiritual initiation, we will have the opportunity to engage the alchemical energies, which can further open our perceptions as we access the ancient ways of the Egyptian Priest and Priestesses of Egypt. Sandy and Normandi will guide you through meditative journeys and oracular exercises using the Medju Neter, the Anubis Oracle, and the Thoth Tarot Decks. We will incorporate writing exercises that flourish from our dreams, our ceremonies, and the whisperings offered to each of us from the neteru themselves, as we play and pray within the magic and mystery of this pilgrimage.

Long after we leave Egypt and return to our ‘individual lives’, the Ancient Ones will continue to provide a container for our spiritual transformation. This journey offers us an opportunity to heal our connection with the Self, and to recognize that our sacred processes―guided by Ma'at herself, She Who Sees All―is to actualize the transformation we seek. This is a gift shared with us, both individually and as a group, through our interactions with the land, the neteru, each other, and the Egyptian people we meet along the way.

We welcome you to join us for this IS the trip of a lifetime. 16 participants only.
