High officials added private funeral monuments during the entire pharaonic period. It remained an important complex for non-royal burials and cult ceremonies for more than 3,000 years, well into Ptolemaic and Roman times. Saqqara is also a place with very strong spiritual power and we will do our first meditation of the day in the area.

We will watch the beautiful sunrise and do our morning mediation, followed by a nice breakfast. Then we will visit the White Desert National Park, which is one of the most well-known desert destinations in Egypt and in the world – and this for a good reason: the quantity of unearthly and beautiful wind-carved rock formations shaped in the form of giant mushrooms or pebbles is amazing. We start exploring the formations and wind carved sculptors that resemble both human and animal faces. These formations are unique and the powerful energy of the desert will ground you in a wonderful way. This will be followed by another barbeque and a tea banquet.
