Zahra Indigo opened the door for me to the Egyptian Mysteries in a way that has profoundly altered my life. From the very first moment I met her, I felt the foundation of integrity that is the core value by which she lives in service to Ma'at.
Walking through the sacred lands of Kemet alongside her, I was continually in awe of the way she weaves relationships with the Neteru, the temples, the people, and the culture with a deep respect and willingness to learn from everything and everyone she comes into contact with. Her teachings flow with grace and she walks her talk.
The level of attentiveness she gives to both the macro and the micro on her sacred journeys is what led me to ask her to help plan, coordinate and build the container of the pilgrimage I will lead in September 2024. Having carried so many through those lands, she has an intimate understanding of the best flow for the itineraries to follow the theme emerging for each particular group.
As the inheritor of Nicki Scully's immense work in those lands, she brings with her a lineage of deep relationships, the ability to open doors that remain invisible to others and the structures built over decades to attend to every detail of a sacred travel experience. Beyond that, she carries this lineage forward with a refinement of the processes across technology and with an eye towards the ever-changing needs of this world (whether that be political, environmental, or health-related shifts occurring).
I trust Indigo to create the template of a journey that is vast in its scope, deep in its experiences, detailed in its itinerary, and safely held and staffed to allow each participant there to fully surrender to the magic and mystery of these ancient lands.
Let yourself take a pilgrimage with Zahra. Let nothing stop you. Not time. Not money. Let yourself go and experience. When Egypt calls, answer. Answer yes. Words will not suffice the narrative of why. Trust and Be Love that you are on earth to represent. You are safe to open next to Zahra Indigo.
I SO appreciated Zahra's care, knowledge, grounding presence, patience, and intuition as she lead us with exquisite grace through not just a tour, but a process of opening ourselves to the mysteries of Egypt. I felt well held and confident in Zahra's experience on all levels as a guide, educator and a group leader. I was inspired by her passion and deep love for Egypt and the relationships she has cultivated there to support her and our group to fully immerse ourselves in our experience.
This was the experience of a lifetime. Ever since I was a boy, I have wondered about Egypt and it's pantheon. The Mysteries of Egypt tour was everything I could have wanted. They have a fantastic crew and you are taken care of every step of the way. So many doors were opened for us, and we all became family. I will treasure these experiences for the rest of my life. I couldn't ask for a better teacher than Zahra Indigo. You can easily tell her heart is in this work. I got everything I yearned for and so much more. It truly was life changing for me. If you are ready to immerse yourself in ancient Egypt and open yourself to her mysteries, this is likely what your heart has been seeking.
Magical Honeymoon in Egypt
My husband and I truly loved working with Zahra Indigo and her team for an amazing Egypt adventure. Zahra listened to our interests and planned a perfect agenda to maximize our time with a pleasant pace. She arranged Drivers and Guides in both Cairo and Luxor. All of her team were very caring and knowledgeable. We felt as if we stepped into some of the documentaries we've seen and saw sites that few foreigners visit.
Most travelers focus only on the ancient pyramids and tombs, which are mind-blowing. Yet we also requested visiting "Old Cairo" and the Orthodox Coptic treasures of Christianity. I highly recommend Sacred Witness Pilgrimages for a unique, safe and fascinating time in Egypt.
Traveling with Zahra Indigo on the Egyptian Mystery Tour is an experience that opens doors to the ancient while cultivating the knowledge of the holy sites of Egypt. The relationships Zahra has made bring a sense of family that opens your heart and stills your mind so that the soul can drink deeply.
Mysteries of Egypt provided me with the opportunity to enter into the heart of the Mystery that is Egypt. Zahra Indigo is a wonderful guide and brilliant teacher on this pilgrimage to past that lives in my heart as the present and the future. This land and its people opened their hearts to me in a way that I could have never imagined. It was a dream come true. I will come again if it is in the stars for me.
Zahra Indigo sets the tone for and implements the ideal of a sacred pilgrimage. She is clear in her communication leading up to the trip, clean in her expectations and desires during the trip, and does so with grace and strength. I'm honored to have been on this most beautifully held journey.
I want to thank you again for including us in this journey. Every aspect of the experience exceeded my expectations. Your guidance, planning, preparation, and leadership were superlative. I had some reservations about the focus and context of the trip being spiritual and mystical in nature. I was also concerned about fitting in and relating to the activities in which we would participate. None of my concerns were founded or realized and the depth and richness of all those activities and experiences effected me profoundly. My feeling of connection to all the people, the land, the culture, the history, and the mythology enlivened my spirit and enriched my soul. The gratitude and appreciation I felt about everything filled my heart. And again so much of this was due to your efforts. Thank you again.
My first visit to Egypt was with Zahra Indigo in March of 2018. I was more than amazed by the entire experience. Indigo is a wise, compassionate guide. I thoroughly enjoyed being lead through the magical land of Egypt by such a stellar team of brilliant souls. This trip was transformative. The energy in the temples and sacred spaces is magnificent. Meeting locals in a few villages was heartwarming. I felt so welcomed by everyone I encountered in Egypt. My first visit has me longing to return and explore further. Much love and appreciation for this gift.
I have had the pleasure of traveling in Egypt twice with tours lead by Zahra Indigo. During both tours I marveled at her knowledge of Egypt, it’s people, culture, and history. In a very seamlessly easy and elegant manner she knows how to make things happen inside of a culture that is very different from ours here in North America. She walks the earth there as if she were native to the land. The Egyptian people love her and even more important they respect her, it is a beautiful thing to witness. There was never a moment that I didn’t feel taken care of in the most luxurious way and on top of that I always felt extremely safe. Zahra Indigo is fun, lively, strong, and beyond capable. It may or may not be a stretch to say she knows Egypt like the back of her hand. If it is, it is not far from the truth, and I can testify that her hands are extremely capable, loving ones which I have felt fully comfortable to trust with my well being physically and spiritually in a foreign land.
I traveled with Zahra Indigo and Normandie Ellis to Egypt in Feb/March 2018. Indigo doesn’t just know Egypt, she embodies Egypt. She becomes Egypt. She IS Egypt. Watching her walk barefoot on the sand and in the temples and tombs, draped in scarf and shawl, I was inspired, humbled and taken on the magic carpet ride that Indigo created for us all. This was my third trip, and viewing Egypt through Indigo’s leadership was surprisingly eye-opening; the mysteries continued to unravel and unfold. If you are intrigued by Egypt, if you are drawn to this profoundly loving and magical country, you can’t do better than having Zahra Indigo as your guide. And I want to add a big shout-out to Normandie, who shined in her co-leader role. You guys and gals... GO! Go to Egypt (with Indigo). I promise your mind will be blown and your heart will burst open with love.
In February and March of 2018, I had the pleasure of traveling through Egypt with Zahra Indigo as one of my guides. I cannot say enough about what an amazing experience this was. Of utmost importance to me was finding a tour group with leaders that held the same reverence and awe for the history and sacredness of this country that I do as well. Indigo did not disappoint. The time and planning that obviously went into our journey beforehand, along with the knowledge and respect for every area and site that we visited were simply amazing. This is not to mention the attention that was clearly paid to every last detail, from meals to roommates and beyond. Zahra Indigo sees the big picture and she did an incredible job of planning a sacred journey that was appropriate for our entire group, while also attending to each individual person and all of our separate needs or concerns. She has the ability to tailor the experience to each person in a way that makes it their own. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in an experience that goes beyond the average and reaches for the Spirit of Egypt itself. In fact, I am already saving for my next journey and opportunity to travel along with her again!
Zahra Indigo’s journeys are not for tourists, but for pilgrims and seekers. Years before I met her, I visited Egypt and became well-informed. But when I returned with Indigo, I became transformed. Everything about her journeys opens the heart and engages the soul, from her intimate relationship with myth and archetype, her devotion to the magic of ancient tombs and temples, to her love for Egyptian people and theirs for her. With Indigo’s skillful guidance, we may touch antiquity, connect to sacred truths through ritual and prayer and reclaim our rightful place in the unbroken chain of divine energy manifest in the material world.
Egypt truly is a magical place. I’ve felt that from the first time I stepped onto its sacred soil almost twenty years ago, to right now as I write this review. I have traveled to Egypt six times so far. Each time its very essence pulls me deeper into its mysteries. For me, traveling without having to worry about the nit-picky details is heaven and allows me to truly absorb its magic. I’ve traveled with Zahra Indigo several times, including my last tour where we went off the beaten path into parts of Egypt I’ve never seen before, but wanted to experience. It was wonderful. Zahra Indigo has taken the time to totally immerse herself, not only in the magic of the ancient sites, but also in the day-to-day lives of the Egyptian people. Her Zahra Foundation is a wonderful example. I respect that and feel it adds to the experience. As we all know, travel to ancient lands is not always perfect, but during those times Indigo has been upfront about it and offered alternatives or other solutions to the issues, thus moving seamlessly through the land. I hope you will join her on one of her upcoming tours. You won’t be disappointed!
I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to explore Egypt with Shamanic Journeys a couple of years ago, and had such an incredible experience! Zahra Indigo was one of our guides, and she stood out as an individual who is very knowledgeable and passionate about the intriguing history and beautiful people of Egypt. She led our group not only through ancient lands and sacred temples, but also on an internal journey of activating the spirit and awakening. Her warm, welcoming presence, and the connection and cohesion that she facilitated among our group was so special. I will always remember the sunrise ceremonies that we shared at Seshep Ank and the Isis temple, as well as our night time visit inside the Great Pyramid. The collective experiences of this trip, under the guidance of Zahra Indigo, sparked a new light inside of me, and my fascination with the mysteries of ancient Egypt will never subside.
Having Zahra Indigo Rønlov as my Co-facilitator while we traveled Egypt this year was pretty miraculous. Looking forward to working with her again. She has a nose for keeping the details straight and taking care of her people. Straight up Ma'at from this gal.
I’m Doaa. I’m working as tour guide in Egypt. I know Zahra Indigo since her first time in Egypt. She is very organized & takes good care of her clients. I also felt that I completely hugged & fit in her groups. It was my pleasure to work with her & for the next tours too , keep going my Habibi! Best wishes.
Rest In Peace, Dear Doaa. You are missed. 5/25/2021
I have had the wonderful opportunity of co-teaching in Egypt a handful of times, but none of those experiences have been as fluid, nor touched me as deeply, as the times I have co-taught with Zahra Indigo. She has an enormous capacity to introduce groups to wonder of Egypt, because of her love of the country and its people. I am always delighted to work with someone who is well organized, dedicated to participants feeling the wonder of Egypt in unique ways, and who has the capacity to fully and fairly co-teach. I love working with Zahra Indigo and look forward to another journey of the heart.
