KUNDALINI ON THE NILE
With GURU DHARAM & SIRI SAT
LIFECYCLES, LIFESTYLES AND… LIFETIMES: sailing on the Nile
Kundalini Egypt: ESOTERIC PRACTICES FOR SELF-INITIATION & Soul Transmission
NOVEMBER 11th - 22nd, 2019
(Luxor and Cairo)
Egyptian Pharonic Culture perceived G-o-d in all aspects of life. The vision permeated the geographical and topographical features of the land and the flow of the nile itself.
In fact, Pharaonic culture was a standard bearer of Kundalini practice and had mastered many aspects of esoteric and magical lore that were then kept and taught in their great mystery schools. This part of our journey allows time for us to visit magnificent Temples of Inner Illumination and to practice Kriyas which engage the Tattvas (the elements) and give an experience of deep awakening.
Aquarian Teacher Training: LIFECYCLES & LIFESTYLES, Level TWO
(Aswan to Edfu, ending in Luxor. 6 nights of sailing.)
When we can follow the flow of life we are renewed with each breath as we reveal the mystery and find mastery through all the cycles of life.
The yogis understood that life has 3 crucial stages that are interdependent and interrelated. First, the process of choosing a mother and being born. Second, the play of Lila, (the divine play,) as we make Karmic or Dharmic choices during the story of our life. Third, is the manner in which we die and return to the heavens.
These 3 stages form a series of interlocking cycles that can be modified, altered, and refined by the Yogi. Come explore and heal all the different cycles of your life in Egypt.
