This afternoon we visit  the famous Egyptian  Museum Our Egyptologist will guide us through this famous museum with a collection of over 200,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts, dating back to 4,000 BC. Visiting the museum is an opportunity to see the statues and artifacts that originally were located in the temples, this paints a fuller picture when you go to the temples, like seeing the original furniture designed for a house in ancient Egypt. There you will also experience first-hand the different periods of ancient Egypt and the individual artistic and architectural styles of each period.

One of the many highlights of this museum is the visit to the treasures of Tut-Ankh-Amun. Stand before the breathtakingly beautiful gold death mask and marvel at the treasures that traveled with this boy king to the afterlife.There will be time to explore the museum on your own and to feel the sometimes eerie presence of energies from the past that still linger within the statues.

(Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 3, Mon, Nov 13th: The Sphinx / Islamic Cairo:
In the very early morning, private visit to the Giza Plateau, when nobody else is there except our group. Listen closely as you awaken and dress for Sunrise at the Valley Temple of Chephren on the Giza Plateau. As you reluctantly come alive, you will hear the incredible sounds of the entire city being called to prayer.  Open your door and listen – Feel the energy of the spirits…we are off to discover some of the most awesome Wonders of the World to touch them and to feel them. The Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau.  We study them and pay particular attention to the Sphinx.  Our guide, who is an encyclopedia of Egyptology, will give us detailed examinations of various controversial theories surrounding these amazing structures.

This afternoon we visit the incredible Mosque of Refaai, was completed in 1912 and is built in the Mameluk style. Its exterior is sumptuously decorated with marble, cedar wood and ivory ornamentation. The Mosque is in fact the family vault of Ismail and within it are buried Princess Khosiar, Ismail himself, his wives, Sultan Hussein Kame, King Fouad and Shah of Iran.

Evening group meeting with our Spiritual Leaders.

(Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 4, Tue, Nov 14th: Cairo / Luxor / Karnak Temple:
Following breakfast, transfer to Cairo airport to get on our short, one hour flight to Luxor. Check into the deluxe Sonesta St. George Luxor hotel.

In the afternoon, tour of Karnak temple, one of the largest temple complexes in the world. Karnak recalls us to the powerful acts of creation, of beginning anew, and of building on the divine plan. It has been home for more than 3,500 years to the living statue of the lioness goddess, Sekhmet, who will instigate our mystery school rites of passage. We will write and receive initiations inside the temple complex.

(Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 5, Wed, Nov 15th: Luxor / Dendarah / Luxor Temple:
We drive in the very early hours of the day to North Luxor city to visit Dendera to visit the exquisite temple dedicated to Hathor, the Goddess of abundance, love and joy. The temple is built with a zodiacal ceiling that recalls the origins of Egypt. On the rooftop where Hathor priests and priestesses gathered for their celebrations thousands of years ago, we reconnect to our destinies.

In the evening we visit to the Temple of Luxor and work with the brilliance of the human body called ' The Temple of Man'. Here we are able to see that this temple is built like a human body--the outer layers represent the feet and as we move deeper into the temple, we move towards the head, where the holy of holies, the inner sanctuary is located. This is a wonderful place to focus on physical healing. As you walk through the body of this temple, notice how your body feels and re-member radiant health. Awaken the parts of you that are sleeping, activate divinity codes and turn on your inner light.

(Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 6, Thu, Nov 16th: Luxor / West Bank:
Early morning we visit the Necropolis of Thebes on the West Bank of the Nile. The West Bank holds the Valley of Kings the tombs of the pharaohs that are inscribed with sacred transformative texts, including the books of knowing light and dark, the book of what is in the underworld, the book of caverns, and naming and taming the hours of the night. Here are the tombs of Tutankhamun, and visit The Royal tomb of Ramses VII, and also visit the Valley of Queens with its Unique tomb & many others. We will also visit the Colossi of Memnon.

Free time in Luxor.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)          

Day 7, Fri, Nov 17th: Luxor / Aswan / Edfu / Kom Ombo / Nile Cruise:
In the early morning we drive to visit the Temple of Horus at Edfu, one of the most beautifully preserved in Egypt. Here, we follow the pattern of the hero’s quest as we learn how Horus and his followers (the Shemsu Hor) conquered chaos, and we see the sacred marriage of the king and queen as the embodiment of Horus and the goddess Hathor. The side chambers of the temple show the complexity of the rites that include a healing chamber, a perfumery, and singers’ rooms. One chamber, called the House of Life, stored all of the sacred texts used in seasonal and daily rituals.   
 
We continue drive to Kom Ombo. 

At Kom Ombo we visit the temple. This dramatic temple poised between the edge of the River and the encroaching desert sand was dedicated to two gods - Sobek the crocodile God of strength, fortitude, fertility and rebirth, and Horus the hawk-headed son of Isis and Osiris. Drive to Aswan.

Check into your deluxe Nile cruise. 

We will enjoy a special afternoon of free time in Aswan, where you can explore the local market and/or check out the very fine Nubian Museum, which beautifully expresses the history and culture of the region.

Day 8, Sat, Nov 18th: Aswan / Philea Temple:
Early morning at Dawn we return to the source of all, the Great Mother, to receive the blessings of Isis at her beautiful island, privately at her temple at Philae. This isle represents a fusion of three great civilizations – Egyptian, Greek and Roman. The presence of Isis is palpable in the inner sanctum, the Holy of Holies of her temple. After exploring the grounds and some storytelling on the island...

One of the oldest shopping districts in the world, the Khan El Khalili, is like going back to the time of Ali Baba and Aladdin. Merchants have been trading on this site since at least the 14th century. In 1384, an emir named Al Khalili built a great Khan here, a three-story hostelry intended to accommodate traveling merchants and their wares. Buyers visited the khan for the goods brought in on the merchant caravans, and the selling and bartering spread to the streets around.
