Day 3: Cairo
Giza Pyramids and Sakkara
An early wake up call this morning as we have a very special visit to Giza plateau and the Pyramids with nobody else there except our group! As we connect with the energies here you will feel a sense that a doorway opens between dimensions. We will pass through ancient passages and in doing so we delve into the deepest corners of your soul. The Great Pyramid represents your Crown chakra which aligns to the King’s Chamber — it therefore represents the core centre of the human brain.
Listen closely as you awaken your inner being with a sunrise excursion to the Valley Temple of Khafre — stand between the paws of The Great Sphinx. As you connect to the site, you will hear the incredible sounds of the entire city being called to prayer — you can feel the energy as the dawn breaks. The Sphinx is ‘the soul star’ pathway to accessing ancient knowledge through meditation, whereby seeing all things through an expanded place of awareness. This is the Brow chakra, your 3rd eye. Therefore it is possible to see all things as they truly are with no questions or judgments.
After a breakfast stop we will transfer to your visit of Sakkara which corresponds to the Throat chakra. This temple is aligned with the God Thoth, the enlightened communicator— the holy scribe and wisdom keeper. Sakkara opens the portal to communication, growth and speaking one’s higher personal truth. This intuitive centre is associated with the gift of teaching, communication, and cultural knowledge. When the Pyramids were build the ancient Egyptians possessed an intimate understanding our Universe. They understood the precession of the equinoxes, advanced mathematics and astronomy.
Visit to Papyrus museum. You will see how the ancient Egyptians made the papyrus which is still in use today.
**Conference room will be available for us.
Day 4: Fly Cairo to Aswan
After breakfast transfer from your hotel in Cairo for your flight to Aswan. Meet and assist at Aswan Airport.
Aswan is a major city along the Nile, and is considered the Root Chakra. The main god of Aswan is Khnum, the ram-headed god — the god of creation who sits at the potter’s wheel and forms individuals out of clay. When visiting Aswan, many people experience what is described as “a new birth” — this corresponds to the Root Chakra.
We will take a ferry-boat to the temple of Isis on Philae Island and experience the beautiful feminine energy of this temple complex. When finished we will visit the unfinished Obelisk. Then transfer to your Nile Cruise for check-in and lunch onboard.
Afternoon tea in the Old Cataract Aswan Hotel then a Felucca ride around the botanical garden and a visit to a Nubian village. The Felucca is a traditional sail boat which is widely used on the Nile. It has not really changed since the time of the ancient Egyptians.
The Old Cataract Aswan Hotel was built in 1899 by Thomas Cook to house European travellers. Its guests have included Tsar Nicholas II, Winston Churchill, Howard Carter, Margaret Thatcher, Jimmy Carter, Princess Diana, Queen Noor, and Agatha Christie, who set portions of her novel Death on the Nile, at the hotel. The 1978 film of the novel was shot at the hotel:
**Dinner and overnight on board.
Day 5: Nile Cruise
Sail to Kom Ombo Temple
As we move away from Aswan and sail on this celestial river — we arrive at the temple of Kom Ombo, the Navel or Sacral chakra. This temple is dedicated to two gods, Sobek — the crocodile god which represents the Lower Self and Ra Hr Akhty who represents Horus who is in the heavens — he represents the Higher Self. If you are ready for this experience you will detach from the struggles of higher and lower self. You will let go of fear and negativity as we see the struggle between the higher and lower selves depicted on the temple walls.
**Optional Tour Abu Simbel Temple: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner onboard.
Day 6: Nile Cruise
Edfu and Luxor Temple
Early morning visit to Edfu temple — still in the area of the Navel chakra — we see the struggle of harmony and chaos through the story of Isis, Osirus, Set and Horus.
At Edfu temple you will connect with your hidden emotions. We will visit the sanctuary in the rear of the temple of Horus — his energy is still very present.
We’ll take afternoon tea onboard as we sail to Esna. We next visit Luxor temple which is also associated with the Third chakra. Luxor temple describes the structure of the human body, incorporating its energy centres, the chakras.
**Dinner and overnight on board.
Day 7: Luxor
Dendera and Abydos Temple
Check-out from the Nile Cruise and visit the most beautiful of all the temples on the Nile, the sanctuary at Dendera — dedicated to Hathor, the goddess of love — naturally, this centre corresponds to the feminine Heart chakra energy.
Moving northward is Abydos Temple which is associated with the male Heart chakra energy with its Osirion temple. Abydos is known as the place of healing and transformation.
**Lunch at local restaurant in Abydos city and check-in to your hotel, dinner and overnight in Luxor.
Day 8: Luxor
Luxor West Bank Tour – Valley of the Kings
Another early wake-up call this morning as we have a private visit to El Deir El Bahari, the temple of Hatshepsut on the West Bank — the funerary temple of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut — sunrise at this temple is magical. This temple in ancient times was known as the Holies of Holies. The site was chosen by Hatshepsut for its precise strategic calculations. It is situated not only in a valley considered sacred for over 500 years to the principle feminine goddess connected with the funerary world but also it sits on the axis of the temple of Amon in Karnak. The middle level of this three tiered temple holds the chapels of Anubis and Hathor.
When we have finished here we will move to an eatery for breakfast. Next visit is to the Valley of the Kings. This is the site of the burial tombs of the Kings of ancient Egypt which are decorated with scenes from ancient Egyptian mythology — it is as if they were painted yesterday. On our return to the hotel we will stop off at the Colossi of Memmon. *Optional tour: Hot Air Balloon
**Conference room will be available for us.
