THE GODDESS IN EGYPT 2020
A Sacred Pilgrimage for Women of Goddess
Beloved sister, I’m so glad you are interested in this tour, because it will change the way you view the world for ever. You will be led by myself, High Priestess of the Global Goddess Anique Radiant Heart, and with my magical voice, I will bring the sites alive for you and open your heart to receive the guidance you came for.
I was born in Egypt in 1947, and came to Australia with my family in 1956 when I was 9 years old. I had never thought about returning to Egypt until a wise Aboriginal sister told me that I had to return and re-connect with my Ancestors there. I had to bring some dirt back with me from Egypt, and bury it in my garden so my Ancestors would know where to find me when I passed over.
In the Ancestors Chamber in the Temple of Hathor at Dendera, on my first tour to Egypt in 2018, I connected with them strongly, and they blessed me by opening a portal of understanding of the hidden messages in many of the sacred sites in Egypt and also in other lands.
It will be my honour and my pleasure to share these insights with you on our beautiful tour.
Day 1: 20 March – Arrival to Cairo International Airport
Greetings and welcome to Cairo!
Your magical tour begins with a Goddess In Egypt representative, who will be waiting for you at the airport with your name on a sign.
He will help to finish the arrival procedures, which includes buying a visa for $USD25.
You will need US dollars or you can use your credit card. He will then escort you to your Hotel and help you to Check-in.
For those who wish to arrive early, we have planned a full day shopping excursion. Please go to the end of this webpage for full information about the optional tours.
Day 2: 21 March – Tour to Visit Giza Pyramids, Sphinx and Museum
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, The Goddess In Egypt representative will pick you up from your hotel and a sister guide will accompany you from your hotel for an excursion where you will be awed by the sight of the great Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus.
These ancient Temples, renowned for their sound healing resonances, were also places of power where the rich and powerful would come to energetically re-align with the Cosmos, or the deities. For those who are able, you can climb down into the great pyramid, however you will have to be able to walk bent over at the waist.
Following this extraordinary experience, we will stop at the Sphinx, an ancient symbol of the Goddess, signifying the power and wisdom of the Goddess embodied as half lion and half woman.
For lunch we will stop at a local restaurant and enjoy delicious Egyptian food.
After lunch, the tour continues to the Egyptian museum of Antiquities, which houses the world’s largest, most precious, and rare collection of genuine artifacts, over 250,000 pieces are displayed dating back to 5000 years including an exhibit of the ancient mirrors used by the Priestesses of Hathor and Isis. There is also a wonderful statue of Tawaret, the hippopotamus Goddess of fertility and childbirth. It is said that if a woman wants a child, she prays to Tawaret, and rubs her head to ask for a child.
After the Museum, we can choose to either go to a local restaurant, or return to the hotel for dinner at your leisure.
Day 3: 22 March – Transfer to Cairo Airport to Fly to Aswan
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, the Goddess in Egypt representative will pick you up from the hotel and take you to the airport for our flight to Aswan airport and transfer us to the lovely Basma Aswan hotel. You will have time to settle in and view the sights from your hotel window.
In the afternoon our representative will come to pick you up for a private access tour to the Philae Temple.
Built to honor the Goddess Isis. This was the last temple built in the classical Egyptian style, typical of the pre – pharaonic period, before the priests of Amun took over the spiritual/worship life of the people. It was at this time that gods began to overtake the Goddess.
Construction began around 690 BC, and it was one of the last outposts where the Goddess was worshipped. The worship of Isis continued here until at least AD 550, and still continues today as evidenced by the Iceum of Isis in the US and all over the world, as founded by Lady Olivia Dunston in the early 1030’s.
Before we actually arrive at the Temple proper, we will visit the old Gate/Arch which led to the Priestess House, where the ancient Priestesses of Isis and Hathor would ceremonially enter the sacred inner sanctum of their place of living and worship. Here we shall chant and do a simple yet powerful ceremony to prepare us for our entry into the Temple. We will re-connect with the ancient Priestesses of the Temple and ask them to join us. We will call them in with invocation and song.
After the extraordinary experience of the Temple, we will return to the hotel for dinner at your leisure.
Day 4: 23 March start your Nile Cruise visit Aswan & Kom Ombo
In the morning, after breakfast which is included The Goddess in Egypt representative will be waiting for you at the Hotel and will escort you to your Nile Cruise, where you will experience a very smooth check – in.
After you settle in, our representative will come to pick you up and transfer you to a tour to the Nubian village.
Depending on river conditions and the weather, you’ll travel in a traditional felucca sail boat, or in a modern motorboat.
This is a spectacular opportunity to experience the Nile River at close quarters…..you can actually trail your hand in the water as we sail.
Take in views of the Nile riverbanks on the way to Sohaila Island, passing Elephantine Island along the way.
Disembark on Sohaila Island, and visit a traditional Nubian house to learn about the history and culture of the Nubian people over a glass of welcome tea.
After your time at the house, take a walk to explore the island on your own, strolling through brightly-painted villages, and chatting with the locals.
The shopping here is the best in my opinion. The shop keepers are happy to bargain, and grateful for your custom.
Then the Cruise Ship will start sailing to Kom Ombo, where you will visit Temple of Kom Ombo (45 Kilometers drive form Aswan).
This temple was built to Honor the Crocodile – headed god Sobek, who gradually took over the role of Tawaret as the “god” of fertility.
In some of the later depictions of Tawaret, he is seen riding on her back. I feel this temple has been built over a number of much older Temples, as its location is one of great power.
It is located right in the banks of the Nile, and was constructed with underground channels that filled initiation chambers below ground.
I feel many initiations were enacted there to make the Priestesses imbued with the power to assist women in all the birthing rites, as well as the power to induce pregnancy.
Once on the ship, all meals are included.
Day 5: 24 March Tour to Edfu
Relaxing day on the cruise enjoying the sailing, or join us on an opional tour to the Temple of Edfu.
Day 6: 25 March – Tour to West bank of Luxor
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, you will check out from cruise ship, and the Goddess in Egypt representative will pick you up and accompany you from your Nile Cruise by an air conditioned deluxe coach to visit the west bank of the river Nile where you will enjoy the experience of the Valley of the Queens.
The experience will continue with a visit to the Hatshepsut Temple at El Deir El Bahary.
The Queen Hatshepsut was the only female pharaoh, and High Priestess of Hathor, and the temple dedicated to her is as exceptional as she was, rising up in a series of terraces from the yellow desert.
To the far left of the Temple complex is an ancient holy of holy’s dedicated to Hathor, which remains from the old Temple site which was built over.
However, as with many temples (and also as in many churches around the world) the new priests knew that they had to keep a remnant of the old ancient Mother Goddess, or the people would not embrace the new religion. The little “chapel” is locked of course, but you can still look in and feel the power which is still there.
At some stage during the day, we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant for lunch at your leisure.
Afterwards you will be transferred to your hotel, where dinner is included.
Day 7: 26 March – Tour to East bank (Luxor & Karnack temples)
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, our representative will accompany you from your hotel to the east bank to visit the Temple of Karnak. This temple was dedicated to God Amon, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu. It is one of the most powerful patriarchal edifices in Egypt. It was here that the Amon priests reached their ultimate power and it is here that the worship of the great Mother Goddess was finally cut down in the minds of the people.
When I first visited the Temple, I found it hard to enter, but of course I had to as I was Tour leader, and as I crossed over the threshold, I felt a powerful “blow” to my Heart Chakra, and I began to shake.
I had a vision of all the High Priestesses of all the Hathor and Isis temples being rounded up and brought here. I watched in horror as their hair was brutally cut off and their breasts mutilated, before they were stoned to death, as a warning to all that worship of the Great Mother was now taboo.
It took all my power to continue. But I did so because the gift of this site is the small Sekhmet Chapel, where we shall have private entry. Here there is a holy if holy’s, with an extraordinary statue of Sekhmet, which mysteriously moves before your eyes.
As I was praying to Her, She called me strongly to open my eyes and look at Her, and I saw Her eyes glow like fire. She whispered in my heart that She was the Goddess of Justice, and to trust Her in my yearning for Divine Accounting of the atrocities done to Priestesses at this Temple. I left with a deep healing having taken place.
At some stage we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant at your leisure.
After lunch, you will be transferred to visit the Temple of Luxor which is located in the Heart of Luxor City. This enormous structure, also holds a little treasure, another holy of holy’s dedicated to Hathor and Sekhmet. Again, here there are no guards, and we will do a powerful ceremony to Sekhmet, asking her to heal the wounds we all carry as Priestesses, from these terrible times of persecution of those who loved the Great Mother Goddess.
Overnight at hotel.
Dinner at your leisure at the Hotel.
Day 8: 27 March Felucca and Dandarah
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, the Goddess in Egypt representative will accompany you from your hotel to have a delightful tour with felucca on the Nile for an hour.
Here, we shall offer our songs and prayers to Mother Nile.
The rivers of the world are known for carrying the songs and stories of the people, and are powerful “song lines” for healing the Land.
Please prepare a song or a poem of gratitude to offer.
We will stop at a local restaurant for lunch and also some shopping in Luxor.
In the afternoon you will go for a Private Visit to Dandarah and visit the ancient Temple of Hathor.
The name Hathor is made up of: Hat – meaning “highest” and Hor – meaning “light”. So She was named The Supreme Light – or –The Supreme Creatrix.
The Dendera Temple complex, which contains the Temple of Hathor, is one of the best-preserved temples, if not the best-preserved one, in all of Upper Egypt.
The whole complex covers some 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mud brick wall.
The present building dates back to the times of the Ptolemaic dynasty and was completed by the Roman emperor Tiberius, but it rests on the foundations of earlier buildings dating back at least as far as Khufu (known as the Great Pyramid builder Cheops, the second Pharaoh of the 4th dynasty [c. 2613–c. 2494 BC]).
I was sure that there would be some remnant of proof that the old original Temple was there. And sure enough, in one of the side chambers, I found a hole where the previous foundations show through.
At the side of the Temple is the sacred man-made lake or initiation pool. In ancient times, and until relatively recently, before the Nile River was dammed in a number of places, at Full Moon, when the river rose and swelled, the waters would flow from underground channels into this pool, and the Priestesses would do Full Moon rituals to make sure the land would continue to be green. Alas, these days, the land is far from green, and the great gardens of Hathor are lost to us.
Upon your return to the hotel you will have a farewell dinner as a good bye to all the beautiful goddesses of Egypt and to each other.
Day 9: 28/Mar/2020 Departure from Cairo International Airport
In the morning, after breakfast which is included, the Goddess in Egypt representative will be waiting for you at the Hotel. He will accompany you to the airport where there will be one of the Goddess in Egypt staff who will help you to check into your plane for your flight to Cairo to connect with your international flight, we wish you a happy flight, and hope you will tell all your friends how wonderful the tour is.

21 March – Great Pyramid from Inside
Get the chance to visit inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 meters (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years.
24 March – Edfu from Cruise by bus
The Goddess in Egypt tour guide will accompany you from your Nile cruise to a air conditioned bus to visit the Horus Temple in Edfu; it is considered to be one of the most well-preserved temples and the second largest in Egypt.
However, the treasure here is an ancient “hoy of holy’s” – the old Temple to Hathor, which is not even looked at by most tourists. In fact it is considered so “unimportant” that there are no guards here.
Here we will be free to do a deep and powerful ceremony, to bring the Goddess back to Centre in both Egypt and the world.
Afterwards, you will be transferred back to your Nile Cruise. Enjoy the sailing to Luxor.
Once on the ship, all meals are included.
26 March – Hot air balloon (Luxor)
Hot Air Balloon is an amazing way to see world’s largest open air museum.
