Egypt has a powerful healing energy and if you feel drawn to this country this is your calling to join us on this magical trip.

 

Our retreats are designed to awaken your true soul’s purpose and to experience genuine and deep healing. Visiting the wonderful country of Egypt and its sacred sites will invite powerful changes into your life. Just open your mind and your heart and it will just come naturally. During the whole time of the retreat we will hold space for you, to make sure you always feel safe and guided. 

 

Men and women are welcome to join on these life changing retreats. These are unique experiences and we would like everybody to have a wonderful time, which is why spaces are limited.
