    You will be accommodated in a shared room basis. Depending on your flight arrangements, further accommodation can be arranged at the exclusive private LUXOR Light Retreat Centre for Healing and Ascension overlooking the Valley of the Kings. You will enjoy your stay during the meditation cruise on the Nile on board a traditional Egyptian Luxury yacht call a dahabieh. All rooms have private en-suite, air-conditioning.

    You just need to come to Egypt to discover an abundance of mysteries and align with the vibrations and energies of the "Collective Consciousness".

    Day one

    You will transfer from Luxor to Esna to visit the temple of Khnum. Khnum was known as the Ancient Neteru (god) that fashioned life into form from the potter’s wheel. He is known as the Neter that creates the Ka body (etheric template). Healing the Ka body is the most important body to work with. When it is strong and whole, it enables you to receive the vital force from the rays of the sun that feed our chakras that balanced and maintain the health of the physical body. People have this because it is like a forcefield, a shield that enables them to have vital health when it is working efficiently. The Ka body transcends death of the physical body. Therefore on the path of ascension where you are ascending with the physical, it is vital to maintain a strong and healed etheric. If possible, there will be time to meditate in the temple and then meditate on board the dahabieh in the afternoon.

    The purpose of this visit to the Temple of Khnum will be to honor “your” temple (the physical body) and receive vital healing to strengthen and align your etheric template (Ka). After lunch, there will be time to relax and enjoy the Nile as you set sail on the dahabieh.

    Your journey on the dahabieh will be filled with magical experiences if you allow yourself to simply be in the moment.

    Imagine sailing the Nile just as the ancients did in a land that in many cases appears to not have changed for thousands of years.

    It is possible to get a glimpse through the veil and witness for yourself the crystalline pyramids on the horizon.

    Day two

    The Temple of Edfu is dedicated to Horus, the golden child, and holds quite a lot of mystery around it. It was here that the ceremony of the sacred marriage was celebrated once a year and Hathor, wife of Horus, traveled down the Nile from her temple in Dendara to the festival of the Beautiful Feast for the reunion. If this is the temple where the sacred marriage was celebrated, then this is the place that you yourself can celebrate the integration of the masculine and the feminine, the divinely balanced chakras incorporating both polarities fully activated into the fifth dimensional chakras of the new world.

    With fully developed fifth dimensional chakras, comes the ability to transcend the emotional body and operate from a balanced and responsive nature, rather than a reactive nature. Of particular interest is the alchemy room, showing that this was indeed a place of magic and ritual. Your meditation of the day will be to celebrate the sacred marriage of the balanced masculine and feminine within the chakras to welcome the fully integrated fifth dimensional consciousness and experience the dance of light in the reunion of god and goddess.

    There will be an evening party on board the Nile Heaven II with Egyptian dancing and tabla music.

    Day three

    Your next stop along the Nile is to Gebel Silsila and the temple of Horemheb located within the stone quarry where they used to get the stone to build the temples. Horemheb was a scribe, a priest, and a warrior during the reign of Akhenaton. He was a general in the Akhenaton army and this temple represents the importance of loyalty to that which you believe in and the building of strong foundations to your personal temples (your body). You will have time to visit the temple and to walk through the quarry of rough-hewn rocks, a highlight to every trip. Lunch will be on board and then sail further along the Nile. You then will walk along the canals to the village of Ramadi to have tea in the shade of the palm trees with the local Egyptians. Dinner will be on board the dahabieh.

    Day four

    After the morning meditation, you sail onward to the temple of Kom Ombo. This temple is dedicated to Horus, representing good or spirit, and Sobek, representing the dark or ego. It is here that you will recognize the light and dark within yourself. There will be evening sacred sound immersion healing on the evening -

    Day five

    After morning meditation, there will be breakfast on board the dahabieh, and then a morning walk on a small island through the irrigation canals, farms, orchards, and palm groves. Lunch will be on board followed by the journey to Gharb Aswan to visit the Nubian village. Dinner will be held on board. -

    Day six

    After breakfast, participants will leave the dahabieh for Aswan to the Island of Philae. Here you will take a motor boat to the Island of Philae and the temple of Isis. The focus here is the Divine Feminine and if you are lucky on that day, you will visit the original site of the temple before it was moved followed by meditation on the beach of the original location of the temple.

    After this you have the option to visit St Simeons Monastery, return to the boat and begin to sail back to Luxor.

    Day seven

    Laze on the boat as you sail back to Luxor, in the evening you visit Luxor Temple for the close of the trip.

    You will have the opportunity to visit a different ancient Egyptian temple every day during this retreat.

      ChristinA's gift is that of the energy known as Luxor Light. Her Mission is raising consciousness through the gift of Luxor Light. Christina passes on the wisdom of the teachings through the channel which comes forth in the ancient language, meaning they touch you at the level of the soul, and the ego is not involved. But more than that, it means that the wisdom or teachings that reach you are already balanced.

      "Where to start? I would most certainly recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in Egypt and spirituality. It is a unique way to see Egypt and is the break of a lifetime. You will get to see and experience more than the standard tour. You will not regret it. My daughter and I joined Christina on a trip down the Nile. Everything was taken care of from the minute we arrived. On the boat, the crew were respectful, friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The freshly-cooked food was fabulous and there was plenty of it. The accommodation was clean and very nice and comfortable. The boat itself was lovely, and it was so peaceful and magical sailing on the Nile. All the temples were amazing and we had a great and very knowledgeable local guide, and so was our host Christina. The meditations and spiritual side of the trip were excellent and Christina was amazing. I felt blessed to have been able to be a part of this retreat and experience Christina's energy and healing in person."

      "Wow, just wow! From the initial fearful moments of trying to find my way around an airport full of signs written in Arabic, up to the warm greeting from Christina's friend Amro, I always find myself smiling when remembering the moments from this trip. Exploring Cairo with Amro was a sublime mixture of tourist adventure mixed with past-life remembrance. Then we were on to Luxor to reconnect with Christina who I have known since 2004. The serenity of Luxor in the morning is something to be experienced, and the mesmerizing chants from the surrounding mosques overlay the peaceful energy of the Nile. Then we boarded the Dahabieh and set sail down the river. Relaxing daily sailing was punctuated by day trips to villages, shops, museums, and temples along the Nile. Each day was so full of adventure and experiences of new energies at each temple, and so we were always grateful to return to the boat where our friendly crew cooked beautiful meals for us. Each evening, we also spent time in meditation. It was all just brilliant."

      "Everything in this retreat is totally mind-blowing - the people, the culture, the heat, the food, the energy of the Nile, the temples, the history, and much, much more. And Christina, Ashraf, and Cathy are all amazing people that you would surely want to meet!"

      "I really love doing the meditations when I'm ready and doing them again and again even in the middle of the day or night. I love courses taught in person and being with lovely friends, but this is great because you're just at your own pace and you have time to reflect on what is happening. When you're in a workshop, you tend to get caught up in what's happening with others and then missing what's happening with you. Now, I can read others' experiences whenever it suits me. I'm excited!"

      "Words alone cannot express my gratitude to you. Thank you so much for everything. I have been home for nearly a month now, and Egypt is still prevalent in my mind and nightly dreams. When I first met everyone in our group, I was surprised to hear that almost everyone is actually coming back to Egypt for a multiple visit, now I understand why. I cannot wait to revisit Egypt in the future. I had the most amazing journey. I have accomplished all that I intended to do! It was definitely a life altering experience that I hold close to my heart and mind. I will be utilizing all the lessons I learned in my daily life. Thank you Christina for the wonderful trip and journey you have provided. It was truly an honor to connect with such a great light worker in one of the most amazing places of our dear Mother Gaeia. Thank you so much for sharing the Luxor Light as it is beautiful and I consider it a gift for me. What an amazing experience. Thank you!"
