Summary

 
This tour offers you a very unique itinerary, connecting the two pearls of Egypt: Siwa and Nubia.
The Oasis of Siwa is hidden in the Western Desert, it is the home of the Amazigh People, the „Noble Men”. This faraway paradise was not part of Ancient Egypt, however played a very significant role in keeping the energetic balance of Kemet. Siwa has a strong magical power, which called Alexander the Great to journey here, through the desert and through a lot of obstacles. Siwa also offered a safe placeto Cleopatra, when she was escaping the rage of her brother. Some believe Mary Magdalane being the granddaughter of Cleopatra and also visiting Siwa and the famous Oracle Temple. There are legends talking about Pharaohs trying to reach Siwa, and never returning.
The other pearl of Egypt is Nubia,  a kingdom on its own, the other balance pont for Kemet, it has started by Elephantine Island, where the Nile became too wild for the Egyptians to control it. Nubia is the land of the Queens, all strong and famous Egyptian queens has a strong connection to Nubia, some of them  left behind their temples deep in the desert of Nubia. Nubia with its colored houses looks like a fairy land and the Nubian people are guardians of the Golden Times of Atlantis.
Kriszta Veres, the leader of this trip sees and remembers Siwa as the initiation place of the Pharaohs and Nubia as the initiation place of the Queens. Kemet was great and flourishing till the King and Queen did the initiation journey, and their Divine Union was the base for balance and justice on the land of Isis.
We call you to journey with us, following the steps of Kings and Queens through the desert, to do your own initiation journey to balance the mascuine and feminine inside you and in your life!  Come and discover the ancient places and the gifts they can offer to your Soul and everyday life!

Day 2 (​23 November / Marsa Matrouh and old town of Siwa)


Early morning visit of the beautiful and wild Cleopatra Beach in Marsa Matrouh, where there are two magical rock formations in the turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea. One of them forms a crowned woman, the other one a man approaching her in full power. We will meditate here, connecting with the wild beauty of the elements, and the memories of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, and all those who started their initiation journey from here before. We will do our meditation-walk on the rocks and the water, finding our heart-intention with this journey and offering our intentions to the elements.
 
We will arrive at Siwa in the morning, we check in to our hotel, have a nice breakfast and after breakfast we will climb to Shali, the old city of Siwan people. Shali was the home of Amazigh people since the 13th century, but the mud-brick buildings were washed away by a 3-days rain in 1926. The remains of the old city are now in the centre of Siwa, holding a lot of memories and the walk through the labyrinth of old buildings offers a gate to our own Soul-energy. Here on the top of Shali we will open our Souls to do our own initiation journey with the elements in the next two days.
 
In the afternoon there will be free time to rest in our traditional Siwan hotel, which is few minute walk from the city centre or discover the many shops offering Siwan handmade treasures and of course the famous Siwan dates and olive oil. We will meet again for dinner.

Day 3 (24 November /Desert Safari)

Day 3 (24 November /Desert Safari)


After breakfast in the hotel we embark our jeeps driven by the experienced Siwan desert guides and start our discovery of the dunes of the Great Sand Sea. The breathtaking Great Sand Sea is the third largest dune field of the World, and Siwa is the northern gate of it. We will travel through the dunes, climb the mountains formed from the sand and the left-overs of the ancient sea, which once covered the area. We will bath in the natural hot and cold waters of the desert, eat our lunch between the dunes and enjoy the sunset by the desert fire while drinking the famous Siwan tea. We will do four elemental initiation journeys, connecting to the wisdom of air, water, fire and earth.
After sunset we return to the edge of the city, and we will have our delicious dinner cooked in the hot desert sand in a Siwan camp. Overnight in the hotel.

Day 4 (​25 November /Mountain of the Dead, Oracle Temple, Bath of Cleopatra, Dakhrour M)

Day 4 (​25 November /Mountain of the Dead, Oracle Temple, Bath of Cleopatra, Dakhrour M)


After breakfast we will visit the Mountain the Dead with its Greco-Roman tombs, in the energy of the Mountain we will connect to our ancestral lineage and ask for their blessing for the next step of our journey, which is the initiation of the fifth element, Love, in the Oracle Temple.
The Siwan Oracle Temple was the same famous like the Oracle Temple of Delphoi or Dodona. Alexander the Great received the life-changing message of the Oracle Priestesses here. He was proclaimed by them as the Son of the Sun God, and this made him the Pharaoh of Egypt. Of course there was a lot more to this message from the Oracle, his initiation journey continued here for many days and nights, he was tested the the priestesses and the message was revealed when he was ready to rule from his Soul as a Sacred King. We will connect to sacred space of the Oracle Temple, walk the maze of the Temple, we will listen to our own messages whispered to us by the Priestesses still present energetically and meet for a healing ritual on the Sanctuary of the Sanctuaries.
After the ritual there is light lunch a possibility to enjoy the turquoise detoxifying water of the Siwan Salt Mines and then the water of the Cleopatra Bath, where we will have free time to look at the shops and try the wonderful fresh juices of the café.
We will climb to Dakhrour Mountain before sunset. This is the mountain of peace, every year in the autumn the Siwan people gather here and remember and honor the peace which happened between the two tribes (Westerners and Easterners). They do it with a three-day festival of sharing food, chanting, drumming and dancing together. In the beauty of the sunrise and the panorama of the mountain we will do our own energetic exercise to create inner peace.
We will return to the hotel after another delicious dinner and a Siwan drumming and dancing party.
 

Day 5 (​26 November /Travel to Alexandria)

Day 5 (​26 November /Travel to Alexandria)


We will say our farewell to Siwa at sunrise by the Mountains and Salt Lake. After breakfast in the hotel we start our bus journey to Alexandria. After late lunch in Alexandria we will check in to the beautiful Sheraton Montazah and rest.

Day 6 (​27 November /Alexandria and travel to Cairo)

Day 6 (​27 November /Alexandria and travel to Cairo)


After breakfast we do a morning meditation on the beach of the hotel by the waves of the Mediterranean Sea. The city was founded by Alexander the Great, and became the home of the Ptolemaic Kings and Queens. Alexandria was also the home and capital of Cleopatra, from where she ruled as the embodiment of Isis together with Marcus Antonius. The city is the perfect example of beauty the Saced Masculine and Feminine can create together and also the example of how it is ruined when there is no balance between the masculine and feminine energies. Here on the beach we will connect to Cleopatra and to the ability of the feminine to bring change through the heart.
After check out we will visit the Serapeum of Alexandria, and connect to the energy of the Old Alexandria Library and Hypatia, through a visualization in the tunnels of the Serapeum honoring the brave women like Hypatia who acted from the truth of their Souls even in difficult circumstances.
In the afternoon we will travel from Alexandria to Cairo, after dinner check in and free time in the hotel.

Day 7 (28 November / Giza Plateau)

Day 7 (28 November / Giza Plateau)


We will have a special sunrise overlooking the Sphinx and the three pyramids of Giza Plateau. There are many theories about the pyramids. The official theory calls them tombs, I – and many others working with energy – experience them differently. I see and feel the pyramids as places of initiation, each one of them build with a different purpose and holds a different vibration, through the connection to those specific vibrations we can expand our consciousness, and can start living and manifesting the Light from which we were created. We will talk about these theories and than through a small ritual we open our hearts to the Sphinx, the Guardian of the Heart of Egypt. She holds strong power to measure our hearts on the scale of Maat, and cleanse our hearts from all anger, resentment, and negative feelings.
After this preparation we will enter the Giza Plateau, connecting from closer to the Sphinx, and then walking from the Sphinx to the Great Pyramid. 
The three chambers – only one of them can be visited in normal opening hours - of the Great Pyramid offer the possibility to cleanse and release all memories connected to the abuse of magic (which is our ability to create consciously). We will enter the Great Pyramid, energetically connecting to the two closed chambers, than climbing up to the King Chamber the reconnect there to Who We Really Are.
After this we will have breakfast in the beautiful Mena House, enjoying the royal atmosphere of the past, the beauty of the garden and the view of the pyramids.
 
Free time to relax in the hotel, with the possibility of cleansing the Atlantis Karma at the StarGate Temple. At a certain point in Atlantis we started to believe that power in limited, some can have it, others not. From that illusion the power-over pattern has started, which finally destroyed Atlantis, and keeps destroying our World. It is essential that we heal that Karma at the personal and collective levels, so that we can create a different reality.
Dinner and overnight in the Cairo hotel.

Day 8 (​29 November/ Dahshour& Saqqara)

Day 8 (​29 November/ Dahshour& Saqqara)


Visiting the Moon Pyramids of Dahshour. For me the three pyramids of Dashour – the Black, the Bended one, and the Red – are holding the energy of the Crone, Maiden and Mother. Between the pyramids there used to be the Sacred Grove of Isis, and a little further, the Sacred Lake. Here the Divine was honored in the beauty of Nature, and the Priestesses working in harmony with the Male Guardians taught the sacredness of all Life. We will attune to those times, and calling it back to our times.
After Dahshour we will visit the healing temple of the Saqqara Pyramid. Here we connect to the archetype of the Healer, allow our healing abilities to strengthen and creating healing space for all the members of our group.
We finish our visit in Saqqara by visiting the mind-blowing Serapeum with the 24 granite and basalt Sarcophagea (each of them 70-100 tons). The official theory considers this place as the tombs for the Apis Bulls, but anybody with a little bit of open senses will feel the powerful energetic field of the portals. Here in the Serapeum we will connect with our Star Lineage and commit to act in harmony with the Divine Will.
After late lunch, we will fly to Aswan, where we will meet the representative of the travel agency, who will escort us to our accommodation in the Nubian Village.

Day 9 (​30 November/ Kalabsha Temple)

Day 9 (​30 November/ Kalabsha Temple)


After breakfast by the Nile we will have free time to relax in the hotel or discover the many shops in the Nubian Village.
Early afternoon we will visit the Temple of Kalabsha. We will start in the main building of this Nubian temple, connecting to Mendulis, and to his essence of being able to strip away what we do not need anymore. We will offer all those parts of us which we do not want to carry anymore to the transformative space of the temple.
After this we will connect with Sekhmet, the guardian of how to use our power right. In her strong presence we will create a connection between the Solar Plexus and Heart chakras, so that we start using our will and power from the heart.
We will finish the temple visit in the Sanctuary of Qertassi – the Nubian name for Hathor – where we start our preparation for the next part of the journey, opening the gate for dreams and visions. Dinner in the hotel.

Day 10 (​1 December/ Abu Simbel)

Day 10 (​1 December/ Abu Simbel)


After early breakfast we start our journey to Abu Simbel. According to the official theory the two temples of Abu Simbel are the mortuary temples of Ramses II. And His Great Queen, Nefertari. In my Soul-knowledge the Nefertari Temple was the mystery school of Hathor, where the priestesses of Hathor were trained and where the Queen was initiated. The Ramses Temple was a place of healing, where the priestesses of Hathor lead the wounded – energetically or physically - men back to the fullness of their Soul. The Nubians call these temples Nubian temples, and it was a sacred place and mystery school of Hathor since ancient times, long before the rule of Ramses II.
The initiation journey of the King went through the desert of Siwa and was completed in the Oracle Temple of Siwa. The initiation journey of the Queen went through the small Nubian temples hidden in the desert between Aswan and Abu Simbel. It was the road of Dreams and Visions, in each temple the Queen waited for the Vision opening the road to the next temple. The first temple was Kalabsha, where the day before we opened the gate for dreams and visions. We continue asking for the dreams and vision on the 3-hour bus journey between Aswan and Abu Simbel.
In Abu Simbel first we visit the temple of Nefertari and Hathor opening our bodies, hearts and minds to this place of initiation. We invoke the presence of the priestesses and Queens initiated here before and offer ourselves to become chalices for the essence of Hathor.
Than we take this essence to the Ramses Temple, and do healing to our wounded masculine parts, and stories. Dinner, Nubian Evening and overnight in the hotel.

Day 11 (​2 December/ Isis Temple of Philae)

Day 11 (​2 December/ Isis Temple of Philae)


Sunrise on the Nile before we enter the Isis Temple of Philae, which was also the Temple for the Divine Union between the initiated King and Queen. We will visit the Birth-house of the temple connecting to our inner Masculine, inner King. Than we walk with this energy to the main temple and create the Divine Union between our inner Masculine and Feminine. In the Sanctuary of the Sanctuaries in the sacred pose of Isis we will hold the vision of a World born and nurtured from that Unity of the Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine. We will have breakfast in a beautiful restaurant overlooking the Philae Temple.
After breakfast free time in the hotel and the Nubian Village.
Early afternoon we will go sailing on the Nile, which is so beautiful here in Aswan, we will visit the powerful temple of Knum in Elephantine Island, where we also set our intention for the future.
At sunset we will have our farewell dinner on the terrace of the legendary Old Cataract Hotel. Closing, sharing circle in the hotel, in the Nubian Village.
