Magic, Mystery & Miracles in Egypt
Back by popular demand, join Rima for another amazing mystery school field trip to the sacred land of Egypt...only this time with a sacred sexuality twist!
Rima is delighted to introduce her students to Relationship Expert and Tantric Educator Tj Bartel who will serve as co-facilitator and healer on this amazing sacred pilgrimage and retreat. We have space for only 12 women to join the journey to bring forth the goddess within every woman - the sexy, sovereign and satisfied woman we were born to be.
We will spend time in ritual and ceremony in some of the most ancient and sacred spots on the Earth. And we will solidly anchor our soul-connection to the practice of embodying our own Divine Feminine Essence.
Modern-day Egypt may seem like the least likely place to encounter Divine Feminine energy, and in many ways that is true. However, on this trip we are spending almost all of our time outside of the modern Egyptian experience. We will travel down south where things are slower and more connected to the land - it is sacred land with a profound history connecting back to the dawn of human civilization. When I am there, I feel completely at home. It is as though I am finally in a place ancient enough to fully meet my soul.
This part of the world is the original home of the Goddess known as The Queen of Heaven. She went by many names including Isis, Inanna, Anat, and Astare. One of the highlights of the trip will be a private tour of Isis' Temple at Philae at dawn. The sacred feminine energy there is truly palpable.
And in the other temples we are visiting, we will explore rarely seen rooms that were dedicated to the Goddess, each holding potent sacred feminine energy. Imagine holding the hands of your sisters in ceremony and ritual connecting us to these ancient power centers dedicated to the feminine with the intention of more easily connecting into and anchor our own feminine energy!
But by far the most potent feminine presence we will encounter on our journey is the Great Nile herself. This life-giving water simple IS the Divine Feminine in form. We will relax by day and be rocked to sleep by night as we sail for 5 magnificent days and nights on her gentle waters aboard a Dahabeah, the same style of boat used in antiquity to navigate her miles of luscious reed-lined waterways. My time on the Nile taught me so much on my last trip and I am eager to return to see what secrets she may reveal to me this time.
