Egypt Tours Egypt is Calling - Magical Travel to Egypt
 
 



A Postcard From Egypt- October 2008

Greetings from the Giza Plateau,

Today is the last day of our journey through Egypt - and what a magical journey it was again, which culminated today with a sunrise private visit of the Great Pyramid on the full moon. Every time we come to Egypt we are looking forward to what special opportunities and surprises our groups will manifest - and this year showed again that Egypt is a place of unlimited possibilities. It was 4:45 AM and we were crossing the Nile on our way to a private visit of Isis' Temple on the island of Philae. All of the sudden several were pointing into the sky, yelling "oh my God, oh my God". When we turned around, we saw a huge meteorite with a long, golden, fiery tale descending from the sky above the area of our destination. I have never seen anything like this before. If this would have happened at home, all of us would have talked about this amazing display for many days. Not so in Egypt. At our circle that same afternoon, nobody seemed to mention the shooting star, because so many other magical things had happened on Philae- whether it was the magical sail to Philae in the dark, the powerful experiences during our meditation in the sanctuary or that we were for the first time able to access the roof top of the temple to watch in awe the sunrise. During this journey we were blessed with many other unexpected manifestations - however, the most amazing one was that, instead of traveling the Nile in a big cruise-ship, Mohamed Nazmy, the owner of Quest Travel, invited us for a 5 day sail on his private "Dahabia" - a luxurious sailing yacht, which he just finished building (see picture). About half of the group came already for the second or third time with us to Egypt, and they could especially appreciate the difference. Sailing on a "Dahabia" is like traveling in your own private palace. You are much more closely connected to the Nile and are able to stop and explore the land freely. The boat fits a group of 20 people, it has 2 sundecks, an air-conditioned dinning room and library. All the cabins have air-condition and a private bathroom with shower. And the food that is prepared for us daily by the wonderful crew rivals any gourmet restaurant. Emil, our Egyptologist, told us at the beginning of our trip "you will never want to travel any differently" - and he was absolutely right. I always find being on the Nile a very meditative experience - on the Dahabia this was even more enhanced. It was the perfect place to integrate all the experiences and adventures that happened every day. We could stop at little sand beaches, even swam in the Nile, visited farmers and small villages and learned to know and appreciate Egypt in a new and more personal way. Imagine someone would knock on your door and lead a bunch of foreigners with cameras through your house. I am sure you wouldn't be "amused". Here in Egypt you are welcome no matter when and where you go. Most of the people we visited don't have much, they live in very traditional ways, in many hundred year old, mud-brick buildings. But what they have, makes them the most prosperous people I know - which is an open heart, peace and contentment. We all felt humbled by how much there is to learn for us Westerners from the ways Egyptians, especially in the rural areas, approach life. Through sailing on the Dahabia we learned to appreciate Egypt and the Nile as sacred sites themselves, and we all will forever remember the gentle breeze, the fresh scent of Nile water and the warm, welcoming smiles of the people we met. We call our journeys to Egypt "a pilgrimage into the sacredness within". Through meditations and empowerments in the ancient temples and sites, we are remembering aspects of us, that are extremely potent and precious - but were often forgotten in the midst of our hectic daily lives. For example the ability to stay grounded in appreciation and neutrality, the inner balance of masculine and feminine power or the courage to fully accept, love and express our truth. These were some of the gifts and insights, that we were giving ourselves on this journey. Transformation on such a journey is inevitable. One of our fellow travelers, who felt completely deflated before she came on our tour, found her confidence and strength again. Another one found a state of awe and bliss about life and herself, that she did not believe was possible. And the people who came for the second or third time described that they were able to have even more profound insights and realizations than before. Personally, this journey for me was about deepening my commitment to living in the flow, letting go of control and trusting even more in the goodness and infinite possibilities of life. And like everybody else on our pilgrimage - I also feel transformed and enriched. We all came together on this journey to Egypt as different people, from different walks of life. We will leave Egypt, always connected in our experiences, with more open hearts and greater appreciation for who we truly are and the unlimited possibilities of life. Our next pilgrimage to Egypt is already February 7-22, 2009. The very exciting news is, that we are extremely fortunate that we were offered again the Dahabia for this upcoming trip - and we don't know, when it will be available to us again. However, this also means that the number of people who can join us for this trip of a life-time is very limited. In fact, there are only 8 spaces left.
