Our travel through the ancient land Kemet, as Egypt was formerly named, is an inner journey as well as an outer journey. The ancient Egyptian sites are charged with source energy, seeded over 5.000 years ago. Through meditations and workshops we connect with this energy and feel where there is an internal resonance. Also, the sacred sites resonate with the different chakras. During the journey we will focus on the particular chakras per ancient site or region.
