Let us journey together on a 10 day adventure in Egypt 24th of January to 2nd of February 2021. This is a journey for you who want to delve deeper into the mysteries of ancient Egypt. Visiting sacred temples, meditating, chanting and depicting our journey throughout colourful Upper Egypt. An initiation into deeper levels of yourself. Bring your crayons, paint and brushes and join me on an unforgettable inner and outer journey where anything can happen...

Welcome to your deeply buried past and colourful vibrant present! This is a journey in time and space, where we walk the ancient land of the pharaohs of old. We connect with Isis, Hathor and the Egyptian pantheon in deep meditation in the temples. We travel Mother Nile, opening up to the depth of our hearts. This is a once in a lifetime experience, where you will meet the hospitality and kindness of the Egyptian soul as well as your own soul’s hidden spiritual treasures. Be prepared for a transformational time.

I will guide you to pick up the flow of the subconscious to draw and paint symbols and memories as well as the landscape we travel through. You don’t need a lot of painting experience to be able to join. We are working with the intuitive flow as well as depicting temples and landscapes. You will leave Egypt with a deeper understanding of who you are and your mission in life, and a painted diary to keep the flame burning within.

Egypt is a carrier of ancient wisdom. She holds an outstanding number of temples, sacred sites and powerspots. You will reconnect with power places where the initiates of the temples once dived deep into the mysteries. Our trip includes a three day stay in Luxor, visiting and connecting with the awe-inspiring temples in the largest temple area in the world, Karnak and its forest of pillars… We also explore the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut’s temple with its spiritual treasures, followed by an unforgettable trip on the Nile.

We travel the great river on a dahabeya, a barge slowly passing the egyptian landscape where we live, eat, do some yoga and paint. Passing many sacred temples where we will meditate and collect pieces of our soul puzzle on our way up to Assuan in welcoming Nubia. Our trip will peak in the magnificent temple of Abu Simbel and the beautiful Isis temple in Assuan, where many of us surely will feel the lineage back in time.
