spiritual power journey

May 7-17 2024, Ancient Egypt

A journey into Self-Awareness, Divine Consciousness
and Unconditional Love

If you desire to dissolve your fears, and identification with your mind, and step into new experiences of consciousness and unconditional love from which you can create a new life, then join us for a powerful spiritual journey through the temples of Ancient Egypt.

These are some of the special aspects of this journey that takes it beyond just being a tourist.

Private time in the Great Pyramid of Giza just for our group. Meditation, and ceremony in a temple 4,500 years old built to energetically take you to Divine Consciousness. We will spend 10 days traveling the Nile and visiting temples and building our energy in preparation for you to have this experience at the close of our trip.

In the cool morning quiet we will have quiet time in the temple of Karnak in Luxor. Free from the distractions of other tourists, we will visit the Holy of Holies altar and other energy points in this powerful temple. In these ceremonies, we will open portals of energy for your consciousness to expand with love to realize your Divinity.

Cruise the Nile river enjoying the views sailing from Aswan to the temples of Kom Ombo, and Edfu and then into Luxor. Inwardly we use the energy of these ancient temples to power our inward journey opening our heart and soul to release pains and fears from the past and awaken to a consciousness of love.  In the evening we sail into Luxor. While in Luxor our external journey will include guided tours of the Valley of the Kings, Temples and Luxor and Karnak, and a visit to Hatshepsut Temple, all the while propelling our conscious inward expansion.

These are some of the experiences that will change you and your relationship with others during the 11 days and 10 nights in Egypt. A full itinerary is below.


"I've done other retreats but I've never experienced something like this."

What you'll get....

On a power journey, you’re able to leap forward in ways that might have taken you several years working through on your own. We will use ceremony, ritual, contemplation, laughter, our attention, and every bit of awareness to move beyond the emotions and fears of limiting beliefs in the mind. Then we launch our consciousness deep into the wisdom of the Silent Knowledge of ancient masters.

"Going on a journey like this is so much more powerful than weekly sessions over the phone, in so many ways. Besides the personal growth I've experienced, and the love, I'm making friendships I believe will last my lifetime."
Greg L

This is for you if...

  • You want a deep change to your unconscious beliefs and old patterns.
  • You have worked on the Self Mastery practices on your own or in the online groups and want to take a big leap forward.
  • You are new to the Self Mastery work but feel ready to take responsibility for your current situation and make changes to your inner world.
  • You want to accelerate your personal transformation through the power of sacred sites and group support.

If any of the above applies to you, we can’t wait to have you joining the Spiritual Power journey to Egypt!

"When I first came on a Spiritual Power Journey I didn't know what to expect. I was scared of what I would discover, scared that I wouldn’t discover anything... that I would have to return home empty-handed and continue living a life that was making me unhappy. I was also scared to share this experience together with a group I didn´t know. In spite of that, I had a strong desire to go on this adventure and I am forever grateful that I did. What I found was so much more than I could have imagined."

There will be specific meditations and energy practices to prepare you for transformational processes in Egypt. In the journey through Ancient Temples you will be initiated with a conscious awareness. 

After your initiation into the energy and consciousness of Egypt on the Power Journey, you will get two more follow-up video calls so you can integrate your experiences into your life back home. And gain support with using your new conscious awareness to make changes in your day to day world that suits your new consciousness.

Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is Recommended

I highly recommend that you get travel insurance that covers changes in travel, and medical emergencies related to Covid.

If you were to get Covid in Egypt you will likely be quarantined for 2 weeks. There may also be hospitalization issues if symptoms are severe. Good travel insurance can cover these surprise expenses. You can get travel insurance here: with Allainiz or get comparison quotes here

Common Questions

We will have our first class and meet up in Cairo in the afternoon/evening of May 7th. You can arrive a day or more early if you wish, which may be helpful to you for adjusting to time zone changes. This may also be good planning in case of flight changes. 

Ideally, we are all there and can have an opening class by 5 pm. However, it may be after dinner, depending on arrival times. 

We will finish all group activities on the 16th and you can depart anytime on the 17th. 

We can arrange extra nights at the hotel at your expense if you arrive early.   

Yes, this trip can be for you.  You can be as private as you like. There are no requirements to share. You could spend the whole week in silence and do the process as a silent retreat. You are invited to be a part of every process, but not required.

We offer a process and respect how each individual wants to do it. 

If you want to go off on your own at different times, or not show up for a class, you are free to do so.  All we ask is that you let your group leader know so we know you are taken care of and not looking for you when you don’t want to be found. 

PS. What many of us discovered was that our past experience of groups gave us that “not belonging” feeling because the group didn’t know how to be kind and accepting. This often happens at a young age. When you find the right group that is willing to accept you, just as you are, then we can shake off the “not a group person” narrative. 

You don’t have to share about your own process. You are allowed to be as private as you wish. It is entirely optional. 

We open up sharing opportunities during the day, or at evening class. Often someone’s realization or question helps another person with some issue they were wrestling with.  Most sharing happens in the casual social times in between and at meals. 

We are very careful to steer away from what would look like group therapy sharing.  That is not the path or processes we work with. You are more likely to be invited to spend parts of the day in silence, or to be guided inward for deeper self-inquiry. 

We will record the preparation and integration workshops. The recording will be available after the call and you can do the practices there in your own time. If you have a question that you want to be answered, you can post that beforehand and we will answer it during the call. Or we can answer in the community chat after the call. 

If you have questions, then other people probably do also, so it is good to ask them. 

  1. If you feel excited when reading about it, but also a bit nervous and scared.
  2. If you’ve done some previous work with observing and changing your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and want to grow your self-awareness. 
  3. If you feel motivated to take a big leap and experience unconditional love and expand your consciousness.

Answering yes to any of the above? Then you’re ready.
If your mind wants to complicate it more than that, it’s welcome to. But it really can be that simple.

We recommend the events over individual coaching. The amount of instruction for your dollar (peso, euro, crowns, or kuna, etc) goes way farther at events in person. 

The commitment involved in showing up, and the focused attention for several sustained days allow breaking through many more issues in a shorter time than you will do on your own. The processes are much deeper. Your connection and support in a group environment are more conducive to learning and change as well. 

The exception to this is if you are working through trauma issues. If you are triggered into trauma reactions of panic, etc., then be more gentle with yourself and do coaching sessions, or work with a professional in this area. At these Power Journey events we do many new and different approaches to challenge, change, and move consciously past your belief systems. For a person recovering from trauma, this may be too triggering to be helpful.

With that said we’ve had several people with trauma backgrounds coming to this journey. They have in combination with other support at home experienced major shifts to their inner world. What’s true for someone else might not be true to you. One critical element in the type of person that has experienced trauma, and will flourish or grow in a positive manner at these events is if you have high executive functioning in spite of your trauma history.  Feel into what you need and want.
