Priestess of the Goddess - 15 -27 February 2022

 

What does it mean to be a Priestess of the Goddess?

As we travel in our group of soul family along the Nile, to the pyramids and sacred sites of ancient Khemet, you will experience a reawakening. Reawakening to Who You Are and Who You Were, a reawakening of All you can Be.

This trip is for serious Lightworkers and Gatekeepers, the time is now. As we travel and connect to the temples and stargates, we do our work for the planet at these phenomenal gateways. Personal, collective and planetary healing is our aim.

With daily chakra meditations and sharing circles, this will be a safe space for your personal healing. We will work with sacred oils, chakra activations, energy healing, mantras and sound.

The major temples and sacred sites hold specific chakra activations. We will connect to the Neteru powerfully, in many sacred places, enjoying meditation time and private access in the temples.

As we visit temples sacred to the Goddess you may reconnect to your priestess lives. What does it mean to embody the Goddess?

Along the way, we will visit orphanages and help the children, meet local women, and offer assistance to the poor. We will spend some time in an Ecolodge and learn about eco travel. Our organisation is affiliated with various charities that help women, children and orphans through education and the relief of poverty. We are committed to ending child marriage and FGM.

On this journey of a lifetime, you will have the opportunity to experience Egypt in a conscious, friendly group; connect with soul family; embrace your soul work; and to experience a new birth as you reconnect with your ancient lives, returning and reawakening to embody your true soul essence. 

Places are limited to 12 travellers - full itinerary below

Our Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Luxor: our rep will meet you at the airport, assist you with your luggage, and check you into the 5* Luxor hotel. Our group of spirit travellers will meet for our first circle on the banks of the Nile, and enjoy a welcome dinner together. 

Luxor Temple at night: our trip starts with an evening visit to Luxor Temple, lit up in splendour, as we are guided through this temple arranged in the shape of a human being. Many footsteps have walked this temple, including Ramesis the Great, Tutankhamun and Queen Hatshepsut. We will meditate in the ascension room, the holy of holies.

Day 2: Karnak Temple: we will visit the magnificent Karnak Temple, gateway to the mysteries, and spend the day meditating there while being guided around by our English speaking Egyptologist. This temple is dedicated to Amun Ra, the great hidden God, and is the largest temple complex in the world. The altar of Amun is where the sun rises on the winter solstice. It contains many smaller temples to different Neteru, such as Osiris Lord of the Underworld, Khonsu the Moon God, Opet the Great Mother Goddess, and Sekhmet Mut.

Private Access with Sekhmet: our group will enjoy private ceremony entering through the seven gates of Sekhmet into the Temple of P'tah. We will spend private time inside the Chapel of Sekhmet, with the Lioness Goddess of healing power. Sekhmet emanates the Sekhem energy, the "Power of Powers", and the Violet flame. Here you will be able to meet Sekhmet and ask her to transform your obstructions.

Full Moon ceremony: on the full moon in Leo, we will hold a transformation and release ceremony on the banks of the Nile

Day 3: Abydos - Temple of Seti I: one of the most beautiful and mysterious temples in Egypt, this temple contains seven chambers for the seven chakras and the seven major neteru. A pilgrimage place of Osiris since ancient times, this temple built by Pharoah Seti I has striking colours and well preserved reliefs. Here we connect to the deep, watery energy of Abydos, place of Nun and Nunet, and the Divine Masculine energy of Osiris.

The Osirion: the ancient Temple of Osiris is sunken into the ground behind the Temple of Seti 1. Here you can see the Flower of Life on the columns. The most ancient temple in all of Egypt is where Isis found the head of her beloved Osiris. The Neter of nature and fertility, always shown in green, he died and was resurrected by Isis, allowing them to conceive their son Horus, before he died again and became Lord of the Underworld.

Denderah - the Hathor Temple: we journey on to Denderah and the Temple of Hathor. This temple was a centre of healing and medicinal treatments, and had a healing pool in the grounds which people would travel to from miles around. Hathor relates to motherhood, fertility, love, magic, and all aspects of childbirth and feminine health. The wife of Horus, her temple is a mirror image of the Horus temple. Our group will enter the crypt which is a sacred place of meditation, and connect with the energies of Hathor. We will see the location of the famous Denderah Zodiac, and the chamber of the Resurrection of Osiris. We will also be allowed on top of the roof, which was a place of stargazing for the priestesses.

Day 4: Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at sunrise: the mortuary temple for Pharoah Hatshepsut is built directly into the rock face, and considered to be one of the most stunning temples in Egypt. Hatshepsut declared herself to be the daughter of Amun Ra, and she built her temple lined up precisely with Karnak. Here we will tune into the energies of the Divine Feminine and this powerful Pharonic Queen.

Medinet Habu: the morturary temple for Ramesis III is a beautiful, lesser known temple aligned with Deir El Bahri and the Golden City of the Sun.

Collossi of Memnon: these iconic collossi are part of a temple which is slowly being uncovered year by year.

Valley of the Kings: visit to the Valley of the Kings, where we will see royal tombs including the tomb of Tutankhamun and others. Optional visit to the Tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens.

Check into Nile Cruise: our private Dahabiya sailing boat awaits us, where we will enjoy a welcome lunch and set sail for Edfu. A Dahabiya is truly a sublime way to experience the Nile river, in comfort and privacy, close to the water, under the sky.

Day 5: Temple of Horus at Edfu: we arrive at Edfu and visit the beautiful Temple of the Falcon God. Horus represents the Living Pharoah, the Divine Masculine, and the Victorious one. We will connect with the sacred exalted masculine energy and the breath of life, to balance the Divine Feminine. We sail on and spend our second night on the boat.

Day 6: we spend the day sailing down the Nile, river of infinite mysteries, meditating on deck, journaling, integrating, and continuing our healing processes. We spend our third night on the boat, docking at Gebel Silsila. 

Day 7: Gebel-el-Silsila: this was an important sandstone quarry site for the temples of the eighteenth dynasty to Greco-Roman times. Many intriguing shrines and stelae can be found here, in this, the birthplace of temples.

Temple of Kom Ombo: this imposing temple is dedicated to both Sobek and Horus. When Horus went to war with Set, Ma'at decreed that this sacred space be shared. There is a holy of holies for both, and the temple is split down the middle. Here we meditate on the Victory of the Light over the darkness, and the victory of the higher self over the lower self. The high frequency energy of Horus the Elder is contrasted with the deep kundalini energy of Sobek the crocodile deity, an aspect of Set. We spend our fourth night on the boat, with a traditional Egyptian celebration party.

Day 8: Check into Aswan hotel: we arrive at Aswan and check into our hotel.

Philae Island Temple of Isis: we will take a small boat to Philae Island, the "Pearl of Egypt", and the great Isis Temple. This temple has the heart vibration and the energy of Mother Isis herself, Queen, High Priestess, Spiritual Master, Alchemist and Great Magician. Here we meditate on anchoring this energy into the heart chakra. Isis was able to use her magic to discover the secret names of Ra, and after putting the pieces of her husband back together, she restored Osiris to life. It is believed that she found his Heart at Philae. This is how she resurrected the sacred Divine Masuline.

Day 9: Optional Trip to Abu Simbel: early morning drive through the desert to Abu Simbel, the Temples of Ramesis and Nefertari. These temples are stunningly beautiful, in a peaceful location by Lake Nasser. The Temple of Nefertari has the Love vibration as she was the most beloved Queen of Ramesis.

Free time in Aswan: optional boat trips, camel rides, swim in the Nile, explore the Nubian village.

Day 10: Flight from Aswan to Cairo: transfer to the Ark Ascension Retreat

Abusir: this beautiful place on the edge of the desert is located between Giza and Saqqara. An ancient place of Osiris, there are fourteen small step pyramids here. 

Day 11: Abu Ghorab: we have special permission to visit Abu Ghorab at sunrise, at this lesser travelled site we will see the Solar Disk of Ra, part of the Sun Temple of Nyuserre. This site is full of mysterious calcite basins and a small pyramid.

Saqqara: we will spend the afternoon in the Saqqara necropolis, where we will go inside the Pyramid of Unas and view the pyramid texts. We will see the great Step Pyramid of Djoser, and many other tombs and sites including the Serapeum, the place of Osiris and the sacred bulls.

Day 12: The Great Pyramids & Sphinx of Giza: the pinnacle of our trip, we will visit the Great Pyramid of Giza early in the morning. We will spend time meditating in the King's Chamber, where the greatest transformations can occur. We will also visit the second Great Pyramid of Khafre, which has the Divine Feminine energy and completes the balance. We will then spend time with the legendary Sphinx of Giza, the oldest monument on the planet, and a powerful stargate.

Cairo Museum: we will have the opportunity to explore the original Cairo museum, designed by a French architect, which still has many good artefacts inside, before they are moved across to the Grand Egyptian Museum later this year.

Khan el Khalili: an optional trip to the famous Cairo bazaars for those who wish to explore the colourful sights, sounds and aromas of Egypt.

Farewell Dinner: We bid our soul family farewell, and give thanks for divine connections and blessed experiences, ready to carry the energy of ancient Egypt into our daily lives.

There is space for yoga and our meditation circles as we glide through the land of Khemet.

A deeply empowering place that... blasted my heart wide open

"It is hard to put into words what I experienced on my journey to Egypt with Katy and our incredible group of women.  First off I had no desire to go to Egypt but it kept calling me and showing up in my world so I began my search for a retreat.  I knew that If I went it had to be a spiritual retreat that went beyond the surface level of the traditional tours. 
When I came across Katy’s website and read the incredible intinerary I immediately knew I had found my retreat.   Egypt was so much more than I could have ever imagined. It is a deeply empowering place that has awakened caged up power within me, and blasted my heart wide open.  It gave me the courage to release the things and people in my life that were safe and comfortable allowing me the space to grow beyond my fears, and false limitations.   It was the perfect way to end a year of self work.  I am new blank canvas ready to paint my masterpiece.
So if you are ready for transformation and Egypt has been calling you I highly suggest Katy and her retreat. 
I am forever grateful to Egypt and most of all the beautiful soul sisters I gained on this journey."

Amanda Beisel, Consultant

Divine Feminine in Egypt

Experiencing the Goddess on that level changes you forever

"There is no other place on Earth like Egypt! Visiting its extraordinary sites which still hold the ancient high vibrational energy is absolutely transformational.
It has been my dream since I was in my teens and joining Katy Sophia’s retreat made my dream come true.
The immersion in the ancient sacredness of the temples has been very profound for me and all of us collectively. I didn't feel like a tourist visiting another country but like a priestess returning home to the temple. It was an empowering process that clarified my connection with Egypt. Experiencing the Goddess on that level changes you forever. I came home to myself, the anxiety has dissipated, the fears burned away and my Soul surrendered and melted into the waters of the Nile, from where everything germinates and is born anew.
What was truly special about this trip was the relaxed pace Katy Sophia created with plenty of space of time for all of us to be in the temples and sites we visited. This was very important for me as I couldn't have been rushed while living such a profound connection felt on a cellular and vibrational level.
All my needs were met. Katy made sure we were all happy and the organization of the trip was exceptional and more than I imagined it would be. Having as a guide the guardian of the Karnak temple added to the learning experience and the sacrality of the visit as his knowledge comes from the ancient Mysteries School and he explained to us the iconographic representation on a deeper level.
We saw things of a breathtaking beauty, we meditated in the most beautiful sites and we sailed in the most magical river in the world.
I will be forever grateful to Katy for making this trip possible for me and if I had done it by myself I wouldn't have had the blessing of all this trip offered including very special new friendships.
Thank you Katy Sophia, LOVE YOU! ❤🙏

Excellent ***** Five Stars
"The itinerary and organisation were excellent.  The accommodation was very comfortable & all well appointed.  We loved overlooking Great Pyramid!  Our Egyptologist Guides were exceptional - as well as being extremely knowledgeable & delightful people they were also very helpful & took care of any issue in the background.  

The Private Access visits were very special & made the trip for me.  Not sure I can (say what I enjoyed most) as I loved the whole ‘journey’…  JUST LOVED the whole experience!  There was just the right amount of ‘guiding’ and time to enjoy on our own… not over organised which I liked.  Thanks Katy :-) A trip of a lifetime!"
