Listen closely as you awaken your inner being with a sunrise excursion to the Valley Temple of Khafre — stand between the paws of The Great Sphinx. As you connect to the site, you will hear the incredible sounds of the entire city being called to prayer — you can feel the energy as the dawn breaks. The Sphinx is 'the soul star' pathway to accessing ancient knowledge through meditation, whereby seeing all things through an expanded place of awareness. This is the Brow chakra, your 3rd eye. Therefore it is possible to see all things as they truly are with no questions or judgments.

This temple is aligned with God Thoth the enlightened communicator— the holy scribe and wisdom keeper. Sakkara opens the portal to communication, growth and speaking ones higher personal truth. This intuitive centre is associated with the gift of teaching, communication, and cultural knowledge. When the Pyramids were build the ancient Egyptians possessed an intimate understanding our Universe. They understood the procession of the equinoxes, advanced mathematics and astronomy.
