Join Kathianne Lewis, DD for a trip of a lifetime and what may be her last Sacred Travel Tour to Egypt!

"Travel in luxurious style with a world renowned Spiritual Leader, Master Teacher, and Luminary. Rev. Dr. Kathianne Lewis, DD creates openings for and guides groups through sacred transformation while exploring ancient sites and engaging in the local customs of Egypt. A priceless opportunity to travel with a leader in high consciousness and a group of individuals seeking to take their consciousness to the next level. Sacred travel through Egypt with Kathianne Lewis is a spiritual immersion and cultural excursion that you will walk away from with an expanded heart, unforgettable experiences and connections, and life changing inner system upgrades!”

We all travel for different reasons; to see new things, to have a spiritual experience, to spend precious time with friends, to learn, and sometimes just to break our at home routine.

What if you could do all the above in one mind blowing (a term often used by people who travel with Kathianne), consciousness raising trip? Oh, and a chance to stay at 5 star hotels or be pampered on our own private river boat through the Nile.

Sound interesting? If so, you won't want to miss out on this trip!

Kathianne has been leading groups to Egypt for 30 years and it never disappoints. People who know her know she travels in style, so you will be pampered and cared from the moment you enter the Cairo airport until you leave for your plane trip back home; and in between that time you will travel and stay in luxury. There will also be dedicated time for community spiritual practice, process work to enhance the Egypt experience, and hanging out together. 

The trip is limited by the number of staterooms on our Nile River Boat (10) so is limited in the number of people we can accommodate.

If this interests you, set the intention and let the Universe support you in attending this trip of a lifetime!

Cairo / Giza Pyramids / Sphinx / King's Chamber / Egyptian Museum / Luxor Temple /

Following breakfast, we will have an opening circle.

Then we visit the Egyptian Museum of Cairo (or The Grand Egyptian Museum if open) to view the spiritual legacy of priest kings, queens, scribes and healers. The museum holds an astounding collection of Egyptian antiquities and exhibits over 120,000 artifacts, including those from the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Next, we will visit El Moez Le Din Allah Street; an eloquent witness for historical Cairo with the various monuments spread along both sides of the street. You can walk along history when you walk in El Moez Street. The most beautiful Islamic street in Cairo, Islamic monuments & mosques are on each side of El Moez Street. There you can view El Hakem Mosque 1000 years ago. Also, in El Moez Street, you can see Souk, Khan Khalili Bazaar, wekala, hamam, khan, hotel, palace, mosque, khankah, college, citadel and fort in flourishing historical Cairo. The atmospheres of this traditional market, together with the labyrinth layout of the streets, gives you a glimpse into what medieval markets were like.

We will then enjoy our Welcome Dinner at one of the famous Egyptian local restaurants.

Day 3, Sat, Nov 9: Giza Plateau / Sphinx / Sakkara:
In the very early morning, we will have a 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 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 will be off to discover some of the most awesome Wonders of the World, the Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, to touch them and to feel them. We study them and pay particular attention to the Sphinx. Our guide, who is a human encyclopedia of Egyptology, will give us detailed examinations of various controversial theories surrounding these amazing structures.

We will return to the hotel for a hot breakfast.

In the afternoon, we will drive by luxury bus to Sakkara, where we visit the oldest pyramid, the Step Pyramid of Djoser, and its temple of sound and healing. Sakkara was masterminded by Imhotep, the high priest, vizier and architect to King Djoser during Dynasty III. This magnificent site includes other Old Kingdom tombs, among them those that hold the earliest known hieroglyphs, the Pyramid Texts that were the model for the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

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.

Day 6, Tue, Nov 12: West Bank / Luxor Temple:
Early morning, we visit Deir el Bahari, the funerary temple of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut. We also visit the Necropolis of Thebes on the West Bank of the Nile. The West Bank where the Valley of Kings holds 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, Ramses III and VII, Seti I, Thutmosis III, and then we visit the Valley of Queens and many others. We will also visit the Colossi of Memnon before lunch at Africa restaurant.

In the evening, we visit Luxor Temple as it began under the reign of Amonhotep III. It was then added to by Ramses II and Nectanebo I. It has an intact avenue of sphinxes in front of the Ramses II pylon. The Kadesh Battle of Ramses II, against the Hittites, is detailed on the pylon walls. This is the only religious monument in the world that includes Pharaonic, Macedonian, Ptolemaic, Roman, Christian, and Islamic constructions.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 7, Wed, Nov 13: Karnak Temple / Sailing to Esna / Esna Lock:
In the morning, we visit the magnificent Karnak Temple. Karnak is the biggest temple complex in Egypt – and a very special place. It is dedicated to the gods Amun and Mut. As you enter, you walk between a row of rams-headed sphinxes, which originally connected Karnak with Luxor Temple two miles away. Take some time to visit the sacred lake of Karnak, ask for purification and place your intention in your mind's eye into the lake.

Outside the main halls is a small chapel dedicated to Sekhmet where we have a private time with her, her consort Ptah and their son Nefertum. Sekhmet is the lioness goddess of compassion and courage. She is associated with feminine fire and healing through destruction. She is a renowned healer and known for her magic and ability to hunt down an imbalance at its origin. In a potent private initiation, we will honor the goddess and receive the gift of courage to be our authentic selves.

Then we start sailing to Esna and enjoy watching the countryside of Egypt. Relax while sharing your thoughts with Rev. Kathianne on the sun deck.

Cross Esna lock. Sail North towards Luxor.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 8, Thu, Nov 14: Sailing to Edfu / Edfu Temple: 
We will sail the Nile all day until we get to visit Edfu and the Temple of Horus, one of the most beautifully preserved in Egypt. When you approach the temple complex, you become aware of its enormous dimensions, with a vast courtyard, a forest of towering columns and high ceilings. The side chambers of the Temple of Horus show the complexity of ancient rites; they 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. Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power. The left eye represents the lunar, the moon, the intuitive, the feminine energy. The right eye is connected to the solar, the masculine, the action, and the yang energy. Both are necessary for true power to exist. In a private empowerment we will work with balancing the lunar and the solar energies inside of us and awaken our intuitive centers to be able to experience a higher perspective. Overnight on an island near Edfu.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 9, Fri, Nov 15: Relaxing Sailing Day:
Spend the entire day relaxing and sailing on The Nile from Edfu to Esna, passing by the villages of the farmers & fishermen and learn as you walk through these villages about their daily life activities.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 10, Sat, Nov 16: Sail to Kom Ombo / Kom Ombo Temple / Aswan:
We sail to Kom Ombo to visit the only dual temple in Egypt. 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. The duality of light/dark, yin/yang, conscious/unconscious is apparent in this ancient site. One of the most powerful places in Kom Ombo is the Seat of Neutrality, which is placed on the exact centerline between the parts of the temple that are dedicated to Horus/Sobek and Light/Dark.

We then continue sailing to Aswan.

Following lunch, we check into historical hotel, Old Cataract.

(Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 11, Sun, Nov 17: Philae Temple / Felucca Ride / Elephantine Island / Khnum Temple / Nubia Market:
At sunrise, we visit the Great Mother, to receive the blessings of Isis at her beautiful island 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.

In the afternoon we will enjoy our felucca ride and will visit Elephantine Island and temple of the God of Creation, Khnum Temple.

In the evening have time to enjoy that colorful Nubian Market in the streets of Aswan.

Seattle Center for Spiritual Living (“CSL”), a recognized 501(c)(3) religious non-profit, is arranging a tour for interested parties to Egypt on November 7-20, 2024. In the past CSL has had an arranged travel tour cancelled due to elevated security risks and pandemic restrictions. In today’s uncertain world it is possible that this trip may be cancelled due to circumstances beyond CSL’s control. CSL therefore asks that you consider and agree to the following before making a deposit for this tour.

  1. I am eighteen (18) years of age or older.
  2. I am physically able to complete this travel.
  3. I recognize that CSL is NOT a “seller of travel” as defined in RCW 19.138.021(6).
  4. I realize that CSL is arranging travel directly through vendors in Egypt and will pay to the vendors necessary deposits from the funds I pay to CSL. I understand the deposits might not be refundable in the case of a cancellation no matter the circumstances.
  5. I understand that once the domestic flights for travel within Egypt are purchased by the vendor, the expense will not be refundable in the case of a cancellation no matter the circumstances. 
  6. I recognize that circumstances beyond the control of CSL such as a pandemic, an act of terrorism, or the U.S. State Department canceling all American flights to or from Egypt might require a postponement or cancellation of this trip.
  7. I agree to hold CSL harmless if the trip is cancelled for reasons outside CSL’s control. Although I know that CSL will do everything in its power to obtain refunds on my behalf, I will not hold CSL liable for any refunds not received.
  8. I understand that if CSL cancels the trip for its own convenience then I will be due a full refund.
  9. I understand that there is a minimum $1,000 non-refundable/non-tranferable deposit due at registration.
  10. By registering I am agreeing to the financial and time deadlines as spelled out above.
  11. I agree that CSL shall not be obligated to refund any cancellation penalties imposed by the vendor with whom the services were arranged.
  12. I understand that I am responsible for verifying the validity of my passport based on my individual arrival and departure dates, obtaining a visa in advance if required based on my individual nationality, and also understand that requirements for both varies by country. To the best of Quest Travel's knowledge at this time, passport and visa regulations are as follows:

It is a government requirement that all passports MUST have 6 months of validity.
