Tour Description

"Would you like to experience ‘the esoteric adventure’ of a lifetime?
We are going to Egypt in October & November 2018 and this will be no ordinary tour!

"The great Temples of Egypt hold within them not only the history of their civilisation; they are also the keepers of deep sacredness and ancient knowledge.
These magnificent structures are in fact a testament to the very real connection these ancient people had with Divine Sources of Consciousness.

"Now for the first time you can directly experience these profound spiritual connections for yourself!

"You will travel side by side with my guide Amun-Min as he shares the holy meanings of the etheric pillars of love & consciousness available to us at different Sacred Temple sites.

"We will sail down the Nile in 5 star luxury by the light of a silvery full moon for 3 nights and delve deep into the mysteries of this magical place, plus lots, lots more!" - Jennifer
