Loretta's photo (with mysterious orb) taken right after ceremony in the Holy of Holies at Isis' temple at PhilaeJourney to Egypt, by Loretta Vigil
My journey home to Egypt has stirred such a profound awakening that for the first time in my life I truly have clarity about myself and my place in the world. I call it an awakening because for the previous 40 years I had been spiritually asleep; denying myself of my Self by the weight of sorrows, disappointments and disconnections, anxieties, depressions and the heartbreaks of life on the material plane. From time to time something in me would begin to stir and I would seek out a retreat, a reading, a class here or there but I never followed through with anything. I went through the first two initiations in Reiki, became a Certified Hypnotherapist, but always allowed myself to be pulled back down into the responsibilities of life.
Something had to give; somehow I had to crawl out from under the rock, put things in perspective and find a way to live a more authentic life. Or so I kept telling myself. Funny that aging makes us think more about the innocence of youth. How, I wondered, do I find my way back to my ‘original nature’ and what is that exactly?

Emotional Freedom, Judith Orloff, M.D.
It is my pleasure to recommend a book by an author and teacher that I hold in great respect:
Judith Orloff, M.D., bestselling author and UCLA psychiatrist, invites you on a remarkable journey where you can embrace more happiness and mastery over negativity than you may have ever known. Our world is in the midst of a meltdown. She describes how to stay intuitively and spiritually centered in our times.
Dr. Orloff is celebrating the exciting launch of her new book Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life by treating you to an incredible book-launch one-time offer with special gifts from herself and others such as Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Michael Beckwith, and more!
In Emotional Freedom Dr. Orloff states: “I’m presenting the unique process I use with patients to view emotions as a path to spiritual and intuitive awakening (not EFT). I synthesize traditional medicine with energy medicine to offer you new tools to master emotions and become heroes in your own life. Inner peace leads to outer peace in the world.”
In the book, you will discover:
- Four questions to transform fear with courage
- What your emotional type is
- How to stop absorbing the emotions of others
- How to combat emotional vampires with compassion
- The spiritual meaning of depression and hope
If you'd like to liberate yourself from negative emotions and compassionately own the moment in all situations instead of simply being reactive, go here: http://drjudithorloff.com/emotional-freedom-promotion. For more inspiration and information visit DrJudithOrloff.com.
with Star Wolf, Brad Collins & Ruby Falconer
February 26 - March 13, 2010
As we travel through the ancient land of Egypt, immersing ourselves in the shamanic magic of these archetypal principles, we will view the neteru through the prism of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology.
Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, a co-creation of Linda Star Wolf and Ruby Falconer, is a re-languaging of the ancient art of astrology. The result is a new perspective appropriate for a new age. Inherent in the myths and stories of shamanic Egypt is a description of our world as it existed before the shattering we collectively experienced many thousands of years ago. Encrypted in the language of western astrology is a description of the wounds we have suffered. This language has served us well, because we are a wounded planet. It is now time to move beyond our wounds, however, and embrace our wholeness. Shamanic Egyptian Astrology is a language of wholeness.
This new astrological language is based upon the books co-authored by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt: Awakening the Healing Power of the Heart and The Anubis Oracle: A Journey Into the Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt.
At each stop on our journey, we will explore the neteru from a Shamanic Egyptian Astrological perspective. At the foot of the Sphinx, the Earth Altar that holds the key to the Akashic Records, we will invoke the shamanic energies of Anubis and will open to the Blue Star Mysteries. At Karnak, we will honor the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet, the great agent of change who reconciles the opposites and therefore helps us step out of duality into greater wholeness. At each temple we will stand before Nekhbet, the great grandmother crone, and ask her permission to enter into the shamanic mysteries contained within these sacred structures. Throughout our journey the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology will be invoked to broaden and deepen our experience.
A Shamanic Egyptian Astrological chart will be prepared for each of our journeyers on our trip to Egypt. Ruby Falconer, a professional astrologer with 36 years of experience, will be available for personal in-depth readings both on our journey as well as by telephone after we return home.

Our Bridge for Healing Cancer program presents phone bridge rituals conducted by Nicki Scully to heal and transform cancer. Whether you have cancer or want to assist and support those who are suffering from cancer, you are welcome to join our bridge. Participants from around the world meet by telephone for each bridge to practice an Alchemical Healing process during which we join together to create a vessel in the shape of a parabola. From this form, which is similar to a satellite dish, we receive potent healing energies and also transmit cancer cells outward in a safe and effective way. This is a free event.

Saturday, July 4 10AM-5:30PM Eugene, Oregon
Celebrate Independence Day with ceremony, rituals, and new edge teachings focused on 2012 and beyond.
The year 2012 is being hailed as a pivotal moment in the history of our world. Some see this as an apocalyptic time of chaos and destruction. Others see it as a new beginning, an opportunity for a quantum leap in consciousness that results in a paradigm shift that ushers in a Golden Age. Either way, 2012 and the shamanic death it portends can provide a timely catalyst for the regeneration and renewal of body, mind and Spirit for ourselves and our planet. Please join us for a day of transformative ceremony and new edge teachings as we prepare to become part of the great paradigm shift that is happening NOW.
The price of this workshop is $120 if you register before June 10. Register online at Hathor's Mirror.

August 19 ~ 23, 2009, Eugene, Oregon
Join Nicki Scully and Gloria Taylor-Brown in Eugene this summer as we explore and weave together the new Egyptian Mysteries that are calling to us. As we continue spiraling upward and forward through the shamanic cycles of death, illumination, regeneration and rebirth that punctuate our ongoing awakening process, we have found that the Egyptian Mystery teachings provide a consistent, unique and always surprising high note each summer. Although the teachings and rites we will be sharing have their foundations in Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt and The Anubis Oracle, this retreat is an opportunity to reach beyond the neteru that appear in those and my other published works.
Gloria Taylor Brown has a wonderful new website where you can learn more about her and the great things she is doing. Please visit GloriaTaylorBrown.com
