Early morning visit to Karnak, the world’s largest temple. This huge temple complex in Luxor was one of ancient Egypt's grandest and most ambitious building projects. Its multiple temple buildings are monuments to a list of pharaohs who all wanted to stamp their mark on their kingdom's most revered religious sanctuary. This was the house of the Gods, and its glories were to be celebrated by all. During our visit we will experience the powerful Chapel of Sekhmet, the Neter who represents the potent and purifying energies of the sun. Next we will visit the newly opened Precinct of Mut, one of the four main temple enclosures that make up the Karnak Temple Complex. At noon we sail to Esna.

Day 10

Nile Cruise (Monday April 15th)

After breakfast we will gather together for lectures.

By late afternoon, our cruise ship will dock beside the Temples of Sobek and Horus the Elder at Kom Ombo. It is here that the ancient initiates would face and learn how to overcome their fear and anger (as represented by the crocodile Neter, Sobek), emotions that can severely inhibit our spiritual growth. In Drunvalo Melchsidek’s second volume of ‘The Ancient Secrets of The Flower of Life’, he mentions that this temple represents the second chakra. As it is the only one that’s dedicated to polarity or duality, which is the basis of sexuality. Therefore two gods are associated with it – Sobek the crocodile god and Horus. As you face the temple, the right half is dedicated to darkness and the left side to the light. How appropriate that this was such an important site for initiations. Overnight at the Nile Cruise (B.L.D)

On our way back to the boat we will explore the famous Aswan granite quarry which has the 1,200-ton Unfinished Obelisk. A structure that only very few cranes worldwide could lift today, yet another significant evidence of higher technologies used by the ancient Egyptians. After lunch we will sail by motorboat to Elephantine Island, where we will experience the unique and powerful energies of this location – while also visiting the temple dedicated to the Neter, Khnum who was the ‘The Maker of the Ka’.
