Thank you for your interest in this extraordinary experience that promises to be an astonishing adventure through the ancient land of Egypt.
The alchemical focus of this pilgrimage is to connect with Elemental Egypt through the Blue Water Lily (Nymphaea nouchali var. caerulea), more commonly called the Blue Lotus, a flower that held such a reverence to be carved throughout the temple walls and columns as well as included into sacred rites and initiations. The Blue Lotus once grew along the banks of the River Nile and was a sacred plant deified by the god Nefertem, son of Ptah and Sekhmet. The flower has long since stopped growing along the riverbank as modern civilization has encroached and changed the river's conditions. Yet, there are some in Egypt who work to bring it back by growing it in ponds in various places in the country.
As we move through our journey, we will move with the elementals in pursuit of this ancient flower in the outer world of Egypt, in the mythical and alchemical world of the ancients, as well as within our own spirit as we connect to the essence of who and what Nefertem is within us. To become the Blue Lotus requires the four elements Earth, Water, Air, and Fire as the seed must germinate and sprout in the mud, grow up through the water reaching for the air, and bud then bloom with the heat of the sun. On this pilgrimage we will begin as the seed, germindate, grow, bud, and bloom as we Become the Lotus.
A pre-tour program consisting of 4 classes will bring us into alignment with these sacred elementals as well as connect us to some of the Egyptian neteru (deities) who are associated with these elements—for example: Hapi is the god of the Nile (water), Geb is the god of Earth, and Re is the fiery sun.
The guidance we receive both inward and outward, along the journey will be given expression through our connection with the Neteru—the gods and goddesses of the Egyptian Pantheon—who show up to work with us. We will utilize ritual, envisioning, dreams, oracle cards, and writing as we move through the land, along the River Nile, under the sun, and in and amongst the ancient temples of Egypt.
In addition to the amazing visits to many ancient Temples of Egypt, this pilgrimage includes special private experiences, outside of pubic hours, with the Sphinx of Giza, at the Temple of Philae, and in the Great Pyramid.
