Detailed Itinerary: 

THE HERO’S JOURNEY of Self Discovery

To follow the HOR is to follow the path of the Divine Feminine, the Heart or Life-Force of the Land and it’s inhabitants. Hathor/HET HOR is the ‘place of the HOR’, the OMEGA, or womb that houses the seed of consciousness. This Hor, the Alpha, or seed, is ignited by the rays of the Sun as it winds it path across Horizons, marking time and space. Horus/HERU is this ignition point on the Horizon, that sparks the cyclical Journey of the Hero each day.  Where is Horus?   What hour is it?

The Amarna Period was an era of We’ll leave early in the morning to explore the sites of Akenaton’s Tel el Amarna. The Amarna Period was an era of Egyptian history during the latter half of the Eighteenth Dynasty when the royal residence of the pharaoh and his queen was shifted to Akhetaten, which translates as “Horizon of the Aten”, in what is now modern-day Amarna. Aside from the rock cut tombs found here, the area contains the remains of many structures, such as the Great Temple of the Aten and the Great Royal Palace, that were built by Akhenaton.Our next stop is El Ashmunein.  Khmun, the Ancient Egyptian name of El Ashmunein, means “eight-town”, after the Ogdoad, a group of eight Neteru who represent the world before creation. The name survived into Coptic as (Shmounein), from which the modern name, El Ashmunein, is derived.  The Greeks named the city Hermopolis, after Hermes or the Neter, Djeheuti (Thoth). Here we will see two majestic baboon statues. 

Next we’ll drive to Abydos and check  into our rooms at the House of Life Hotel, Health & Healing Center, located at the the ancient pilgrimage site of Abydos and just a few minutes’ walk from the Temple of Seti I in Abydos. Overnight Flower of Life Hotel, Abydos  (B,L,D)House of Life PageDay 05   May 8th   Tuesday     Abydos and Temple of Seti I and Osireon    

After breakfast at the hotel, we will  visit to visit the Seti I Temple,  and the very ancient Osirieon Temple. We will discuss the symbolism as we view the masterful craftsmanship of the beautiful depictions that cover the walls of the ancient Seti I temple, that is dedicated to Osiris.abydos-7
Behind this Temple lies the megalithic Osirieon, similar to the Valley Temple in Giza, that the indigenous tell us is 35,000-50,000 years old or more. It is here that several depictions of the Flower of Life can been seen on the huge pillars. Local villagers claim that the water that accumulates in this structure has valuable healing properties. Afterwards we depart for Luxor and check into the deluxe 5-Star Maritim Jolie Ville Kings Island Resortsituated on its own private island, surrounded by the majestic Nile River and enjoy a buffet dinner together. Overnight Maritim Jolie Ville  (B,L D)Maritim-Jolie-Ville-1
Day 06   May 9th   Wednesday   Temple of Hathor at  Dendera, where the Secrets are held…
After breakfast, we drive to Dendera to visit the incredible Temple of Hathor. Star maps depicted on the ceilings in this temple, and the replica of famous Dendera Zodiac (the original is displayed at the Louvre in Paris) point to the ancient origins of astrology and superior knowledge of our universe. Hathor (Het-Hert), the Neter who personified motherhood, beauty, sexuality, love, joy, harmony, dance and music was often associated with the planet, Venus. She was known as the Lady of the Stars, and represented the nurturing solar food of the Sun’s rays, required for birth, growth and renewal. What other secrets lie within this magnificent  structure?dendera-hathor
We’ll explore the significance of this extraordinary temple together and then allow for time for everyone to explore its essence individually. We will conclude our visit with a group discussion and meditation in a special place on the temple grounds.
                     Hathor tells us that she is the Alpha and Omega, all that is, all that was,                              and all that ever shall be- and so are you.
 Overnight Maritim Jolie Ville  (B,L )

Day 07    May 10th   Thursday      West Bank   Nefertari’s Tomb, the Rameseum & Colossi of Memnon &  Evening visit to Luxor Temple. 

After Breakfast, we’ll drive to the West Bank and visit the newly opened  Nefertari’s tomb! 
Nefertari’s tomb, or ‘house of eternity’,  is known to contain the best preserved and most eloquent paintings of any Egyptian burial site. By contemporary standards, the real value of the paintings found within the tomb is that they are most detailed source of the ancient Egyptian’s journey towards the afterlife. Nefertari, whose name is said to mean: ‘the most beautiful’,  was one of several Queens of Rameses II.
Afterwards we’ll visit the magnificent Rameseum, which contains incredible ‘megalithic’ statues and evidence of highly advanced craftsmanship. It was originally called the House of millions of years of Usermaatra-setepenra (Ramses II) that unites with Thebes-the-city in the domain of Amen.The the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley penned his sonnet “Ozymandias” with one massive fallen statue in mind. Were it still standing, the Ozymandias colossus would tower 19 meters (62 ft) above the ground!
After a stop at the impressive Colossi of Memnon, we’ll return to the East Bank and check into our rooms on the 5-Star Alyssa Nile Cruise Ship.
We will explore the mysteries of the enigmatic Luxor Temple in the early evening. Linked toKarnak Temple by the Avenue of Sphinxes, Luxor Temple utilizes similar patterns of sacred geometry in its design.Luxor TempleAfter 15 years of intense study, Alchemist, R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, called the Luxor Temple- “The Temple of Man” , in a book in which explored the connectedness of ancient Egyptian philosophy, spirituality, mathematics, and science. Lubicz’s theory that the Luxor Temple was designed to replicate all aspects of Man (body, mind and spirit), is well documented and has gained support from many alternative researchers, including John Anthony West.   Overnight 5-Star Alyssa Nile Cruise Ship (B,LD)
You will have the opportunity to enjoy an optional early morning Hot Air Balloon ride over the West Bank.Luxor Museum 4

Day 08    May 11th   Friday        Karnak Temple, Mut Precinct & Nile Cruise

After breakfast we will visit Karnak Temple, the world’s largest temple. One can never have enough time to fully explore all the riches of Karnak, where we will spend the entire morning. An avenue of ram-headed sphinxes leads us into the gigantic complex, which includes temples dedicated to Amun, a Neter representing an aspect or stage of the Sun, and Khonsu, who represents the Moon.KarnakIn the open air museum we will have time to enter the chapel of Amenhotep I, which is completely made by Alabaster and has amazing resonance! Next we visit the powerful Chapel of Sekhmet to visit the great Mother.  She is alive…and has a message for you if you can sense it.
Sekhmet personifies the solar rays that provide the electromagnetic energy required to sustain life and the earth’s grid.   As the lioness, she symbolizes the powerful and fierce, yet protective love, akin to that of any mother.  Sekhem , means “power” and Sekhmet is the magnetic spark that provides the necessary ‘energy to perform what we have been  told are  mystical, magical and powerful feats, including the healing of the physical body. She is the Life Force.  Be prepared to experience a morning you will never forget! The powerful sacred geometric design and natural elements of the architecture itself has the ability to transform and raise levels of awareness and consciousness as you walk through this and other structures all over the world, designed to harness the natural magnetic current emanating from the earth at these powerful sites.
We will also visit the Precinct of Mut, which is located outside the main temple complex. 720 statues of Mut, the great mother, are said to have inhabited this area, one for each day and night of a perfect year. A crescent shaped sacred lake wraps itself around the site, which is known to be a place of healing.MutAfterwards we will return to have lunch  and set sail on our spectacular Cruise on the Nile and enjoy viewing the lush countryside and life along the river’s banks, much of which appears as it did thousands of years ago!  Overnight 5-Star Alyssa Nile Cruise Ship (B,L,D)

Day 09    May 12th    Saturday          Temples of Sobek & Horus at Kom Ombo                            

We’ll enjoy a buffet Breakfast followed by Morning and Afternoon Lectures by Kathleen and Patricia.After an afternoon of sailing we will stop at Kom Ombo, where we’ll visit the twin temples dedicated to the crocodile Neter, Sobek and Horus, the Elder. We will discuss the aspects of nature and our cosmos represented by the Neteru and how they relate to awakening our senses and raising our levels of awareness.   We will speak of the powerful initiations that were once practiced here, and how we can tap into the profound and self-empowering lessons experienced here by the ancients. You will also have the opportunity to view depictions of various medical instruments and alchemical healing practicesKom Ombo PageOvernight 5-Star Alyssa Nile Cruise Ship (B,L,D)

Day 10    May 13th    Sunday      Temple of Isis  Isis Temple   

We’ll enjoy a buffet Breakfast followed by  Lecture a presented by Patriciaphilae-7

After lunch, we will take a motorboat to the enchanting Island of Philae, and the powerful Temple of Auset (Isis). Auset is associated with the ancients’ most highly revered star, Sirius. The annual rising of Sirius was synonymous with the flooding of the River Nile, which left huge deposits of silt, the very valuable black earth or “KMT” (Khemit) for which Egypt was named. She is usually depicted wearing the throne, or “seat of power”, reflecting the matriarchal nature of the very ancient civilization.  Overnight 5-Star Alyssa Nile Cruise Ship (B,L,D)

Day 11    May 14th   Monday,  Elephantine Island and  Fly to Cairo 

You will have the option to travel, very early in the morning, individually, or as a group to the magnificent  Temples of Ramses II and his Queen Nefertari at Abu Simbel on the banks of Lake Nasser.
Later in the morning we’re off to Elephantine Island, in Aswan, to explore the site that is home to  the temple dedicated to the Neter, Khnum, who was the “master of the mysteries of water”. Scattered throughout this site we find many remnants displaying the superior technologies of pre-dynastic times. The artwork still present is simply stunning. We will discuss the theory that the Ark of the Covenant was once hidden on this island on its journey south to Ethiopia, where many believe it is now. elephantine-6
 We will fly back to Cairo and check into our rooms at the Mena House and enjoy a free evening. Overnight Mena House Hotel,  Giza (B,L)

Day 12    May 15th    Tuesday     Hospital, Step and Unas Pyramids and Serapeum     

After an early Breakfast we will travel by motor coach to the ancient site of Saqqara, home of the Step Pyramid attributed to King Zjoser.Saqqara 9The Sound Healing Hospital and the Mirror
We will visit the Sound Healing Hospital to experience the still active healing frequencies of this ancient site and discuss the many references to the importance of balancing the polarized energies within and without. You will also be able to try your hand at using these energies to create change within your life. What does Imhotep represent – and how can we become architects of energy?
Saqqara PatriciaThe ancients understood that healing is more than just the curing symptoms. It requires and interactive process wherein the patient must also discover where they are “out of Maat” or balance, within.  Patricia will guide you through the Mirror, a device created with this purpose in mind, offering you an opportunity to experience your own reflection.
Next will visit and enter the newly opened Unas, or ‘Wenis’ Pyramid where we will find the earliest Egyptian funerary texts, known as the Pyramid Texts.  Gaston Maspero created the concept that these beautifully crafted texts consisted of magic spells  intended to assist with the pharaoh’s journey through the Duat and into the afterlife.  However, today we can discern many alchemical secrets about  the nature of our reality within them.

The Serapeam  

1010911_10201239387328424_528827934_nAnother highlight of our day will be a visit to the newly opened Serapeum, a huge subterranean complex. A long hallway that runs in east/west directions is flanked by chambers that house gigantic, highly crystalline stone boxes. Many believe that Bulls associated with the Apis Bull cult were buried in them. However, no bulls or human bodies were found in any of these huge boxes which were made with an extremely advanced technology. When excavated in 1852, all twenty-four boxes, weighing 60-80 tons, had been plundered. Their lids had been pried loose and the contents taken. Our collective research shows that these boxes are far more ancient than the writings found on and around them, and were an integral part of a huge energy device. You need to view all the elements  for yourself to truly fathom how it may have functioned.   Overnight Mena House Hotel,  Giza (B,L)
Day 13   May 16th Wednesday,   Private Visit inside the Great Pyramid  &  Farewell Dinner  giza-7 After a late breakfast we will visit the Giza Plateau and see the Valley Temple before we celebrate  our private time between the “Paws of Tefnut” (the Sphinx). Here we will embrace the powerful healing and nurturing love of the great mother and welcome this into our hearts and into the new cycle we are entering into both globally and personally. We will have the opportunity to meditate together here at one of the most powerful spots on earth!

                     Next…we’re off to enter the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid                    where we’ll be gifted with 2 hours of time to ourselves.

gp-7We will all have the opportunity to initiate ourselves into our own new cycles. Each of us will be able to enter the resonance box to experience  the energy field enhanced by resonant toning.

Featured Speakers:

Kathleen A. Ball Ph, D. –Ancient Sites Explorer, Researcher, Professor and Lecturer, Talk Show Host, Mystic Intuitive and Artist

kathleenKathleen’s lifelong search and ultimate study of Ancient civilizations, their similarities and messages for mankind today, have led her on a journey to investigate first hand, a multitude of Ancient sites around the globe including Egypt, South America, North America and several European sites. In addition to her research in Mythical and Mystical belief systems and world-wide Philosophies that ultimately led to her PhD. In Philosophy of Metaphysical Studies, she holds a Masters Degree in Art and a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Multicultural Studies.
As a former Professor she incorporated the studies of Metaphysics, Ancient Culture, Sacred Geometry and the history of the Artist’s role, in terms of visual art and architecture, within the cultures of their time, into her lectures. Her emphasis being that the Artist has a tremendous responsibility to the Society in which they live to portray the beauty and Truth as they interpret it, of their time. The Artist is like a barometer of their time in history, often speaking through their media of choice, about the historical, political, social and religious atmosphere in which they live. Her own Art is consistent with these ethics.
Now retired from Education, She continues to offer her services as a Lecturer, Talk Show Host and Travel Guide passing on her knowledge to fellow travelers and students of Ancient sites and their mysteries. Her lecture topics include the messages passed down from the Ancients to us via our hard physical archaeological evidence in the sites themselves, symbols, resonance at these sites triggering our own DNA, visionary experiences, meditations, intoning, She also offers techniques on how anyone can open themselves up to these abilities, in order to enhance their experience at these ancient sites by accessing a higher state of consciousness.
Her premise, that we as human beings in our present state of evolutionary state, are at a pivitol place between two very different states of consciousness, the purely 3D physical and a much more spiritual existence. Their are very important messages that we can glean from former civilizations and their ancient mystics, astrologers, astronomers and the like. It is Kathleen’s passion to investigate these messages form the Ancients, attempt to interpret them and share them with all fellow travelers who are also drawn to them.

Blessed to have been raised by parents who allowed me to express myself intuitively, in a beautiful isolated and natural environment in Bucks County, PA., I began my exploration of the Nature of this Reality from my early childhood.
Driven by a lifelong passion to know why we exist and what our purpose is, my quest led me to the in depth study of the esoteric sciences as well as the physical sciences, mathematics, comparative religions, ancient literature, mythology, art history and symbology.
Having worked as an Architectural Artist for several years, I learned much about the energetic nature of structure, and about Color Theory and how we experience the world around us through our visual sense. I explored the physics of Color further, as well as the principles of digital technology, when I worked as a Color Specialist and Senior Account Manager, marketing digital copiers, printers and software.
All of this was an incredible preparation for the level of research that the Khemit School is currently undertaking.  The Neters, Mythology and Symbolism of ancient Khemit all combine to give us a brilliant vision and understanding of the nature of our reality, and how we eternally cycle through dimensions and stages of consciousness.  They have given us an alchemical map for how we can work with these natural and holographic archetypal energies and patterns – in order to traverse these portals in this NOW moment.
But it doesn’t stop there!  My journey has taken me to places all over the world; Spain, France, India, Scotland, England, Peru, Bolivia, Lebanon, Australia, and New Zealand, only to discover that there was a very   ancient civilization, worldwide, that left these same clues…with different labels and icons—but, all virtually  telling us the same story of who we are and where we came from. It’s an exciting time to be alive! Humanity is beginning to walk through a powerful portal together where our potential for living in harmony and unlimited self-empowerment will be heightened to new levels
As your intuitive guide and speaker throughout our journey together, I will relate the secrets of the symbolism and mysteries of the ancient Khemitians to the Shifting Energies of our current reality, as we enter this New  Life Cycle, referred to by the indigenous, as the Age of Kheper or what many call The New Dawn.  I will speak about the Pantheon of Egyptian Neters (gods and goddesses), who symbolize aspects and/or forces of nature with multi-dimensional meanings and significance– including being representative of the 360 senses that the indigenous say we all once had.  What are these Senses—and how can we RE-member them?
The information provided will help to enable you to embrace the potentials of the powerful  energies that you will interact with at the Egyptian Temples and Monuments.

 Also Featuring our English Speaking Tour Guide:
