AFFS Journey to Egypt
– postponed… –
“Or are you ignorant, Asclepius, that Egypt is (the) image of heaven? Moreover, it is the dwelling place of heaven and all the forces that are in heaven. If it is proper for us to speak the truth, our land is (the) temple of the world…” Asclepius, Nag Hammadi Library
Welcome to this very special pilgrimage! You have decided to embark upon a journey that will bring you in contact with not only the most extraordinary monuments of history but also with a spiritual experience of the Soul that discovers its linkage with the Higher Worlds.
This is our itinerary (changes possible!!):
Monday, : Arrival in Cairo (Egypt) and Transfer to hotel
Arrive at Cairo International Airport where we will be met by a tour manager to assist us with the formalities of customs and immigration. Transfer and check-in at Le Meridien Pyramids hotel. Please make your own flight reservations. (Meals today at your own discretion.)
Sunday, : Morning Meeting / Giza Plateau / PRIVATE ACCESS to Osiris Shaft
On this first morning, after breakfast, we will gather for a briefing, overview and first study meeting. The afternoon is dedicated to visiting the Giza Plateau and learning more about its famous Pyramids and tombs. This is followed by our first private visit and exploration, which is the Osiris Shaft, also called the Tomb of Osiris, a massive 3-level chamber complex located underneath the stone causeway of Khafre’s Pyramid. All students of THE KEYS will remember that Drs. Hurtak were part of the expedition team in 1997 that led to the opening of the tomb. To visit this tomb is unique and one of the highlights of this journey. Important: You must be physically fit to join in this expedition, and we will separate into smaller groups to fit the narrow chambers. (Breakfast at the hotel and Lunch at a local restaurant included. Dinner on your own.)
Monday, : Saqqara / Unas Pyramid / Pyramid Texts / Serapium
Today will take us to Saqqara to view several of the Old Kingdom pyramids near ancient Memphis. King Djoser’s (Dynasty III) step pyramid at Saqqara is considered the world’s oldest free standing stone structure. Also at Saqqara is the Pyramid of Unas, to the southwest of Djoser’s funerary complex which is significant for our Enoch studies due to the Pyramid Texts it contains (Key 108). Finally, we will visit the Serapium, dedicated to the sacred Apis bull, one of the special locations at Saqqara. The enormous granite and limestone coffins weigh up to 80 tons each and it is a mystery how they were carved and transported into the underground vaults. (Breakfast at the hotel and Lunch at a restaurant during the outing included. Dinner on your own.)
Tuesday, : PRIVATE ACCESS visits to the Sphinx and Great Pyramid
This will be a long and very special day! In the very early morning, before sunrise, we will be paying our respects to the Great Sphinx of Giza in a private access visit that takes us between the paws of the Sphinx (Key 108). After breakfast we will share, study and meditate together to seriously prepare ourselves for the late afternoon private access visit to the Great Pyramid including the King’s chamber, the Queen’s Chamber and the pit. This is the first of two such visits we will enjoy during our journey, today to be used for orientation, the second for our “Initiation”. (Breakfast at the hotel included. Today lunch and dinner are on your own. There is time during the day to explore.)
Wednesday, : Dahshur / Red Pyramid / Bent Pyramid /Enoch studies
This morning we will drive through the countryside to visit Dahshur. This is an ancient royal necropolis located in the desert on the west bank of the Nile River. The necropolis is home to some of Egypt’s best-preserved pyramids, known as the Red Pyramid which we will also visit inside (please be aware that the air can be heavy to breathe) and the Bent Pyramid of Sneferu, which is now also open to the public. After returning to the hotel we will meet for discussions and meditations. (Breakfast at the hotel and Lunch in a restaurant during the excursion included. Dinner on your own.)
Thursday, : Wadi El Natrun / Coptic Monastery of Saint Pishoy / Monastery of El Suryan
This morning we take the ride to Wadi El Natrun where we will pray in the Monastery of Saint Pishoy, the most famous of the Coptic Orthodox churches of Alexandria. The monastery was founded in the fourth century and is a document to the early Christianity in Egypt. This sacred site is mentioned in the Overself Awakening book and of special importance to our studies. We also visit the Monastery of El Suryan, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This is our time to reflect on the journey of the Holy Family in Egypt and the discovery of Gnostic and Coptic texts such as the Pistis Sophia. (Breakfast in the hotel and Lunch on our way are included. Dinner on your own.)
Friday, : PRIVATE ACCESS to Great Pyramid / Old Cairo / Virgin Mary Church of Zeitoun
Another long and powerful day awaits us. In the early morning, we have a second private visit to the Great Pyramid. This time we do not need to explore with our outer senses but can go with our energy bodies and expand in our use of the Divine Names. After breakfast, will be visiting Old Cairo with its churches that date back to the early Christian Era. The Hanging Church, the Church of St. Sergius, one of the places that the Holy Family (Jesus, Mary, and Joseph) visited, and Ben Ezra Synagogue claimed to be the site where pharaoh’s daughter found Moses among the reeds. Finally, we will go to the Church of Zeitoun, where in 1968 to 1971 the Virgin Mary appeared to thousands of people. (Breakfast in the hotel and Lunch on our way are included. Dinner on your own.)
Saturday, : Cairo / Egyptian Museum / Egyptian Bazaar / Farewell Dinner
The new Egyptian Museum should be opened by the time we are visiting Cairo. This will be a special educational tour of the museum with its masterpieces of Egyptian culture such as King Tut Ankh Amon’s mask. Time to do some shopping and wrap up in sharing and discussions.
Tonight, we will enjoy a special Farewell dinner at the hotel. A week of spiritual, archaeological and scientific studies and initiations will have had an effect upon our minds and souls. So let us break the bread and share the wine together in anticipation of our higher supper of Light. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.)
Sunday, : Transfer to Airport and Departure
Breakfast, followed by transfer to Cairo International Airport for our final departure back home. (Breakfast, transfer included.)
The journey will be bringing together the experience of the ancient temples and pyramids with the teaching and sharing of the wisdom of The Keys of Enoch and extensive use of the Sacred Names within a fellowship of Enoch students. You should not be a beginner in these studies but be able to integrate science and spirituality on several levels, and some experience in the use of the Names of God is essential. Our discussions will go deep and the schedule will be demanding. Physical fitness is required to explore the shafts and passageways of the ancient structures.
