Exploring Eternal Egypt - Berit and Derek Seagrif

The journey

Our Journey is planned as a magical Adventure from start to finish. It begins when you Register your commitment to be one of the Keys of Light that each traveller shall represent. The Temples & Tombs of ancient Egypt were designed as places for self-realization – and our Tours reflect & respect this tradition.

21st. Century society and individuals can learn so much from the ancient Egyptian world view, which is why our Tours always emphasis “Eternal Egypt”. They were Masters in this technology of Light – and we are their students.

Exploring Eternal Egypt - Key Of Light

Preparation

That being so, we shall prepare all travellers with a 70-Day program of meditation & various visualization exercises designed to prepare you for attunement with this ancient Egyptian vibration. This inner preparation work has been an original feature of our Tours for more than 25 years. Every 7 days you will receive a special set of papers – and there are 10 such “Books” or study material.

Rebirth on the Nile

One look at our incredible schedule will show you that this is a carefully crafted adventure that seeks to bring you deep into the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Egyptians – with focus upon increased livingness. We could also rename the Tour:

Rebirth on the Nile, for any visitor wanting to enjoy the true, authentic Egypt, must take time to experience sailing on the Nile, experiencing sunrise & sunset, eating & sleeping, reflecting and centering oneself, healing on the Nile. Yet not on a big cruiser but a wonderful luxury sailboat exclusively hired just for our group – fantastic!

Our Tour 2022 is planned with Tour Leaders Berit & Derek Seagrief and Younes Rejser ApS.

Exploring Eternal Egypt - Horus

Together we will gather a Scandinavian group combined with a group of Seekers from the USA.

Our previous Tour was 14-Days & took place at the Autumn Equinox 2018, and was the ultimate Egypt experience, because it was the culmination of 25 years experience – and then came the Corona lockdown.

 

But during this interval, there has hopefully been the creation of a totally new Egyptian Museum in Cairo which will open in 2022 and this is a big event for all travellers to enjoy, and especially if you have previously experienced & can recall the old cramped conditions of the earlier Museum.

 

A Key of Light

Egypt is undoubtedly an inspirational experience – and in contrast to most charter groups, we place great importance on the unfolding group process, making space & place for these personal transformations.

You are a KEY OF LIGHT – The Golden Ankh – and a key needs to be turned to open the door.

Welcome to an incredible magical and alchemical 11-Day Adventure!
