My Magical Journey to Egypt!

I listened to Spirit talk about Egypt. They whispered in my ear for years. I stepped up and out and made my pilgrimage to Egypt in February 2015. I asked for some tangible indication of the benefits that will be reaped on this journey. I was assured that the information, healing, and initiations I experienced would inform my teaching and healing work, and it has. Here is what I wrote for my guides and facilitators there:


My Egypt

In February 2015, I had the profound privilege of joining a group of travelers, led by Presence of Heart and guided by Quest Travel, on a journey to Egypt. The experience and effect on my life are deep and difficult to put into words.

Whether you feel a sacred call to this magical place, are following a curiosity, or are simply accompanying another whose dream it is to visit Egypt, this opportunity to explore a land filled with mystery is not to be missed.

From the moment I arrived, my every need was gently and beautifully taken care of… I felt the warm welcome of the soul of the Egyptian people at every turn, easing any questions or concerns that may have been in my mind. I felt safe, secure, respected, and at ease.

The container created by this team of skilled professionals allowed my experience to take me deep into the realms enchantment—of Temples, Pyramids, and Tombs—feeling the mystery and knowingness of truly standing at the center of the world. Jane shares her profound love of Egypt with an open heart and the wisdom of decades of sacred ceremonies and initiations. Emil’s passion for his home and depth of knowledge as an Egyptologist adds a dimension of linear and nonlinear understanding. His playful Spirit adds to the joy of being pampered in luxury on land at the Mena House, and on the charmed atmosphere of the Afandina, as we floated gently down the Nile. Mohammed’s grace and expertise in providing structure and balance—as well as his reputation as a consummate guide and respected businessman—added to the comfort and certainty of a tour well-done, and done with love.

Words pale in comparison to the gratitude I feel in my heart for my experience in Egypt. I will return, and when I do, I will again seek the guidance and assistance of Presence of Heart and Quest Travel.


With the amazing generosity and support of my family and friends, I went to Egypt and experienced the life-altering magic of that country and those people. My gratitude is deep and profound. Stay tuned for more as I continue to integrate my experiences and share them with you all.
