BOOK NOW

You Are Invited…

Egypt is a mysterious land combining the ancient and the modern, and the desert sands still hold more secrets than they have revealed.  Modern Egypt is deeply masculine, while the bygone seeds of the culture, including sacred goddess worship, were far more feminine.  As we visit the powerful energetic temples, learning about the ways of the ancestors of us all, we will explore the Sacred Divine Union of the masculine and feminine that lives inside each of us.

Egypt will become a blueprint for your own awakening, and together we will rise to new levels of our own power and consciousness.

Whether you are a couple planning to come together, or a single traveler delighted to meet a new best friend on the trip, this unique luxury tour, led by Transformational Coach, author, and speaker Halle Eavelyn will excite and delight you.  Travel up the Nile as you travel up your chakras, using the very stones to open and guide you to your next level of greatness on this planet.

A once in a lifetime journey that will be hard to replicate!

Words cannot accurately describe the revolutionary experience I had through Transformational Tours & Retreats! I’m a girl who is never surprised and is always thinking of and anticipating the needs of others. I was shaken to my core with utter bliss and amazement at how much love and thoughtfulness I experienced. It was a true gift to be on the receiving end of such magical treatment.

I had the absolute pleasure to go with Halle and my teacher, Elizabeth Purvis, to Egypt and watch firsthand how Halle works. She was the spider in the web that made sure everything flowed seamlessly. She created the space and the opportunity for Elizabeth to do her work. Working relentlessly and quietly in the background we were given an experience of a lifetime!

Our Egypt experience was more than I could’ve ever wished for. Floating down the Nile is unforgettable! From beginning to end I felt that we were all in the best hands. Halle’s experience, knowledge of the ancient sites, and attention to detail were incredible. I’ve made wonderful new friends and had a truly transformational experience that I’ll never forget.

Meet your Tour LEADER

Halle Eavelyn

Hello! I’m Halle, a transformational coach, speaker, writer and your spiritual guide on this incredible journey.

The first time I went to Egypt, I was an atheist. My whole life. By the time I came home two weeks later, I was a deeply spiritual person who had the privilege of meeting, if not God, at least my soul, for the first time. The energy of the Gods, the Goddesses, the very stones of the Temples, washed over me as I sailed down the Nile until my ego learned to swim in this new water.

The biggest surprise of that whole shift? Though I had been wanting it and hoping for it nearly my whole life, I had no idea it would happen in Egypt and I wasn’t expecting it at all.

This tour will be my 27th time leading a group of beautiful seekers just like you through the sacred sites of Egypt. I can’t wait to meet you and guide you through this life-changing transformational retreat.

The Itinerary

Thursday, October 14 (Day 01): Arrival Cairo / Welcome Dinner

Welcome to Cairo airport, where you will be met by one of our local Egyptian family, who will assist you through customs and immigration before transferring you to our luxury accommodations at the spectacular Mena House Hotel. Built as a royal hunting lodge in the mid-19th century, this historic hotel’s past guest list includes everyone from Winston Churchill to Empress Eugenie, from Frank Sinatra to Princess Diana. The hotel grounds feature a stunning view of the Pyramids, and the hotel boasts a heated swimming pool, a full gym, and a spa. 

This evening we will gather for our Opening Circle, where Halle will do a powerful invocation so we can set our intentions for our trip. Then we celebrate the start of our journey with an incredibly special Welcome Dinner overlooking the pyramids. 

(Dinner)

Overnight at the Mena House

Friday, October 15 (Day 02): Private Visit between the Paws of the Sphinx / Saqqara Step Pyramid/Egyptian Oils Perfumery

We begin our day with an inspirational private and exclusive sunrise visit to the Sphinx.  As you awaken for this unforgettable experience, listen to the incredible sounds of the entire city being called to prayer.  Open the door, listen, and feel the energy of the spirits. We are about to discover some of the some of the most awesome wonders of the world, to touch them and feel them right here on the Giza Plateau.  Witness the sun rising directly between the magnificent paws of the Sphinx, who sees all our incarnations on this planet and who keeps safe the Hall of Records where our stories are kept.  The Sphinx, Horus of the Horizon, sits facing the rising sun in part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis, the seat of Power for the Pharaohs, a short distance from the Pyramids.

We will hold an initiation to open our 3rd Eye, the Anja chakra, to help us to acquire wisdom beyond our self-inflicted perceptions. After taking enough time to absorb the powerful energy of the Sphinx, we will return to the hotel for a leisurely breakfast.

In the afternoon will drive to Saqqara to visit the most impressive of dozens of the Old Kingdom pyramids and tombs on the west bank near ancient Memphis, including the oldest pyramid, the Step Pyramid of Djoser, and its temple of sound and healing.  About 2630 B.C. Imhotep, architect to King Djoser (Dynasty III), masterminded the Step Pyramid at Sakkara. Called the world’s oldest freestanding stone structure (by traditional historians – otherwise, you would consider the Great Pyramid far older!) this pyramid consists of six tiers atop a mastaba, or low, oblong tomb. Here if you whisper across the sands, it will be heard 40 feet away — and we will open our throat chakra in a special initiation.

This magnificent site includes other Old Kingdom tombs, among them those that hold the earliest known hieroglyphs and The Pyramid Texts (Unas) that were the model for the Egyptian Book of the Dead. 

Later we will visit a famous perfumery where we will relax and learn about many exotic Egyptian oils from an Aromatherapy Master in a beautiful setting.  You will also discover “The Seven Sacred Chakra Oils of the Pharaohs” and may wish to acquire your own set of these traditional Egyptian essential oils which will be used throughout our journey.

Dinner will be on your own tonight, a great time to join a few new friends to share your experiences of the day, or maybe just a hot bath and room service. 

(Breakfast & Lunch)

Overnight at Mena House Hotel

Saturday, October 16 (Day 03): Old Cairo / Al-Rafa’i Mosque

Today we will journey through colorful Old Cairo, including Coptic Cairo, where we will see many Coptic churches and historical sites. It is believed in the Christian tradition that the Holy Family visited this area and stayed at the site of Saint Sergius and Abu Serga. After lunch, we will visit Sultan Hassan Madrassa, the Islamic world’s most memorable monument, and the historic Al-Rafa’I Mosque. Here we will experience a little of the history and power of Islam, and you will be moved by its beauty and its joy. We will also see the tombs of the Shah of Iran and several kings who are buried in state here.  From the many styles of Islamic architecture decorated with Arabic calligraphy to the winding streets bustling with intriguing shops, cooking aromas, and city sounds, you will soon fall in love with Old Cairo.

Relax and enjoy dinner on your own tonight, perhaps you will enjoy room service or one of the delightful restaurants at the Mena House after a big day of touring this magical city. 

(Breakfast, lunch)

Overnight at the Mena House

Sunday, October 17 (Day 04): Suhag (Abydos Temple)

After Breakfast, we will transfer to Cairo airport and board a short flight to Suhag, and by afternoon we will be savoring the temple of Abydos, dedicated to Osiris, and housing the nine great Gods and Goddesses (the Ennead). This temple rests next to and above the most ancient Osirion, one of the premier power places on the planet, and home to the tattoo of the Flower of Life, the most primal sacred geometry. Here we will privately convene for a powerful initiation unlike any you can imagine. We will also see the more recent temple built by Seti I, which contains the most beautiful bas relief of any temple in Egypt.  After a spectacular day, we will check into the lovely House of Life Hotel in Abydos.

(Breakfast & Dinner)

Overnight at House of Life Abydos

Monday, October 18 (Day 05): Dendera/Luxor Temple

This morning after a hearty breakfast we will board our luxury bus and continue our journey to the exquisite Temple of Dendera, dedicated to Hathor, the Goddess of abundance, love, fertility, childbirth, joy, music, and dance.  Hathor is a goddess close to my heart. 

The temple is built with a zodiac ceiling that recalls the origins of Egypt. In the temple’s crypt, interesting hieroglyphics look nearly alien in nature. The mysterious “light bulb” carvings raise theories about ancient energy sources.

On the rooftop where Hathor priests and priestesses gathered for their celebrations thousands of years ago, we will reconnect to our heart centers in a heart-opening chakra ceremony. We will also connect with Earth and Cosmic energies, using love to amplify both, while offering our deep gratitude.

In the evening under the stars, we will visit the Temple of Luxor, a large ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the East Bank of the Nile River. Here we can see that this temple is built like a human body – the outer layers represent the feet and as we move deeper into the temple, we make our way towards the head, where the Holy of Holies, the inner sanctuary, is located. This is a wonderful place to focus on physical healing. As you walk through the body of this temple, notice how your body feels and re-member radiant health. Awaken the parts of you that are sleeping, activate divinity codes, and turn on your inner light.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on the Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Tuesday, October 19 (Day 06): Karnak Temple/Sail to Esna

Today we will enjoy an early morning visit to the magnificent Karnak Temple. Karnak is the biggest temple complex in Egypt – and an incredibly special place, dedicated to the Gods Amun and Mut. As you enter, you walk between a row of ram-headed sphinxes, which originally connected Karnak with Luxor Temple two miles away. Take some time to visit the sacred Lake of Karnak, ask for purification, and place your intention in your mind’s eye into the Lake.

Outside the main halls is a small chapel dedicated to Sekhmet, her consort Ptah, and their son Nefertum. Sekhmet is the lioness Goddess of compassion and courage. She is associated with feminine fire and healing through destruction. She is a renowned healer and known for magic and the ability to hunt down an imbalance at its origin. In a potent private initiation, we will honor the Goddess and receive the gift of courage to be our authentic selves. We will have a meditation with Sekhmet and enjoy the shade under Hathor’s sycamore tree, noted to be 2000 years old.

This afternoon we can lay back and watch the farmers and countryside of Egypt, as we make our way through the Esna Lock. These days of idyllic sailing from a time gone by are the favorite days of most of our guests. A perfect time for integration, bonding with new friends, journaling, and recapitulation of your inner journey over the last week.  If you have not yet read my spiritual memoir, “Red Goddess Rising” (available on Amazon), this may be a good day to enjoy this fun-filled adventure from atheist to goddess during my own personal spiritual adventure in Egypt.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on the Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Wednesday, October 20 (Day 07): Sailing to Kom Ombo

This morning we will continue our leisurely sail, perhaps a good time for a nice massage, or more reading & journaling.  Just meditating on deck is also a wonderful way to enjoy the countryside and integrate.

In the afternoon, we will explore Kom Ombo, the only dual temple in Egypt. The Healing Temple of Kom Ombo is a glorious, picturesque ruin along the Banks of the Nile. This dramatic temple, poised between the edge of the river and the encroaching desert sand, was dedicated to two gods – Sobek the crocodile god of strength, fortitude, fertility, and rebirth, and Horus, the Hawk-headed son of Isis and Osiris. The duality of the light/dark, conscious/ unconscious, yin/yang is apparent in this ancient site. One of the most powerful places in Kom Ombo is the Seat of Neutrality, which is placed on the exact centerline between the parts of the temple that are dedicated to Horus / Sobek and light /dark. Here we will clear the chakra of our solar plexus, for psychological and spiritual growth, and connect to our life purpose and work.

Late this afternoon we will gather on deck as I will guide us to explore the mysteries and balance the Sacred Divine Feminine and Masculine energies. Open to your greater life, where you no longer struggle to walk your true path in a patriarchal world and instead master the energetic awareness of the sacred within you.

This evening we will continue our sail on to Aswan.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Thursday, October 21 (Day 08): (Aswan) Private visit to Philae Temple 

Early this morning we will gather for our private sunrise meditation and ritual as we return to the source of all, the Great Mother, to receive the blessings of Isis as we open our root chakra at her beautiful island temple at Philae. This isle represents a fusion of three great civilizations: Egyptian, Greek, and Roman. The presence of Isis is palpable in the inner sanctum, the Holy of Holies of her temple.  Here you may feel a connection to the Great Cosmic Mother, to the power of creation, and to Egyptian magic. Take ample time to experience this loving energy. Later we will gather on deck as Halle leads us to share our experiences and discuss our creative inspirations. 

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on the Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Friday, October 22 (Day 9): Aswan (Elephantine Island/Nubian Village)

On our final morning on the beautiful Nile in Aswan, we will enjoy a relaxing Felucca sail to Elephantine Island and walk around through the layers of time that archaeological explorations have unveiled.  Later, after a hearty lunch, we will visit a friendly Nubian Village.

Upon our return to our ship, we will once again set sail, back toward Kom Ombo.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on the Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Saturday, October 23 (Day 10): Sailing/ Edfu Temple

Enjoy the fresh air and morning sun on a delightful sail to Edfu as you prepare yourself for an unforgettable afternoon.

This afternoon we will immerse ourselves in the energy of Edfu Temple, dedicated to Horus, the Falcon God, the best-preserved temple of the Ancient World, and one of the most beautifully preserved in Egypt. When you approach this beautiful temple complex, you become aware of its enormous dimensions, with a vast courtyard, a forest of towering columns, and high ceilings. The side chambers of the temple of Horus show the complexity of ancient rites; they include a healing chamber, a perfumery, and singers’ rooms. One chamber called the House of Life stored all the sacred texts used in seasonal and daily rituals. Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. This temple offers a deeper exploration of the Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities as they relate to the story of the Eye of Horus. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power. The left eye represents the lunar, the moon, the intuitive, and the feminine energy. The right eye is connected to the solar, the masculine, the action, and the yang energy. Both are necessary for true power to exist. In a private empowerment ceremony and sacral chakra clearing, we will work with balancing the masculine and feminine energies inside of us and awaken our intuitive centers to be able to experience a higher perspective.

Late this afternoon, join me on deck for an exploration of the Goddess in history.  Touching on many of the topics of my Your Goddess Awakened show, you will see how the very circle of life has been affected by removing the sacred divine feminine from our Western culture. Then clear the old energies and welcome the softness and power of the creator and receiver energies into your heart.

This evening we sail for Luxor.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight on the Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Sunday, October 24 (Day 11): West Bank (Valley of Kings/Hatshepsut Temple/ Memnon statue)

This morning after breakfast we will make a pilgrimage to Deir el Bahari, the funerary temple of the first female pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut, and visit the Necropolis of ancient Thebes on the West Bank of the Nile.  We will also explore the Valley of the Kings, where the tombs of the pharaohs are inscribed with sacred transformative texts, including the books of knowing light and dark, the book of what is in the underworld, the book of caverns, and the naming and taming the hours of the night.  Here are the royal tombs of Tutankhamun, Ramses III and VII, Seti I, Thutmosis III, and many others.  On our way back we will stop at the Colossi of Memnon, two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, where they are now uncovering the Temple of Mut, which will be even larger than Karnak Temple once it is excavated.

This afternoon, we will dine in style with a delicious Egyptian meal at Africa Restaurant, while enjoying the rooftop Nile view overlooking the Colossi of Memnon.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Overnight at Sun Goddess Nile Cruise

Monday, October 25 (Day 12): Luxor/Cairo (Khan Bazaar)

This morning we will enjoy our last breakfast on the Sun Goddess, then check out and transfer to Luxor Airport to take a short flight back to Cairo, where we will be staying at the gorgeous Four Seasons Giza Hotel.

Today we will experience the famous (and infamous) Khan El Khalili Bazaar.  One of the oldest shopping districts in the world, the Khan is like going back to the time of Ali Baba and Aladdin. Merchants have been trading on this site since at least the 14th century. In 1384, an emir named Al Khalili built a great Khan, a three-story hostelry intended to accommodate traveling merchants and their wares. Buyers visited the Khan for the goods brought in on the merchant caravans, and the selling and bartering spread to the neighboring streets.  This is the perfect opportunity to purchase any final Egyptian treasures that you wish to bring home.

Dine on your own this evening with many delicious options available to you.  Enjoy yourself and be sure to relax and continue to integrate the Egypt energies.  Tomorrow is our final initiation.

(Breakfast, Lunch)

Tuesday, October 26 (Day 13): Private Sunrise Visit to the Great Pyramid / Farewell Dinner

Early this morning, we will have a special Private Visit inside the Great Pyramid with a culminating initiation in the Kings Chamber, igniting the opening of our crown chakra, associated with enlightenment and universal consciousness. Here we unite our life story with the story of those who have come before us and those who will come after as we embrace the transformation that we have experienced.

We will go inside to visit the King’s Chamber, an event you will never forget. For nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry, and sheer bulk of the Giza Pyramids have invited the obvious questions: How were we built, and why? Centuries of research have given us parts of the answer. Today they stand as an awe-inspiring tribute to the might, organization, and achievements of ancient Egypt. Our guide, who is an encyclopedia of Egyptology, will give you detailed examinations of various controversial theories surrounding these amazing structures.

Enjoy a leisurely, magnificent breakfast at the Four Seasons.  Your afternoon is free to enjoy this iconic hotel, while you recapitulate all you have experienced.  Perhaps you would like to take in a spa treatment or just lounge on the terrace with your journal.

This evening we will gather in a special place for our Farewell Dinner where we can celebrate and share our Egyptian memories, recapitulating once more on our journey of a lifetime together!
