Spiritual Tour of Egypt – Reawakening the Initiate!

with Peter Woodbury & Abdallah Nasr

Spiritual Tour of Egypt – Awakening the Initiate!
(includes 3 online courses prior to the trip!)*
with Peter Woodbury & Abdallah Fayed
November 10 thru 20, 2022

I first came to Egypt & Giza as a 6 year old boy! My great grandfather was Egyptian and I have never stopped returning to this sacred land. I have led or co-led tours of Egypt for 20 years. In those many travels, I have made a good friend, Abdallah Fayed, who has become one of the most respected and beloved tour guides of Egypt. We will be working together to create a life transforming experience for you!
One of the highlights of the tour will be the 11/11/22 ReInitiation in the Great Pyramid. There are many interpretations of the many spiritual purposes of the Great Pyramid, and I believe that the main one is how the King’s Chamber/”The Chamber of the Open Tomb” is an initiation chamber, where the initiate would leave their bodies for 3 days thru the supposed “air ducts” and eventually return, awakened to the great mysteries of the truth of the soul.
I will use meditation & trance induction techniques to guide travelers through the initiatory experiences for which the Great Pyramid is intended. We will have 2 hours of exclusive private time in the Great Pyramid on November 11, 2022!
*We will be meditating and energetically interacting with all the spiritual sites we will be visiting. The tour price includes 4 classes I will be teaching over Zoom:
             Understanding The Egyptian Book of The Dead
             Ancient Egyptian Mysticism
             Introduction to the Egyptian Deities & Basic Heirogyliphics
             Introduction to the Great Pyramid Initiation
The ideal of the tour is that we come to Egypt not so much as tourists, but as spiritual pilgrims. We are here to transform not just visit, here to interact and experince and not just see with the external eyes. The advance courses are designed to have us arrive prepared for some deep awakening work!
Abdallah and I have worked diligently together to create as least expensive a tour as possible, while maintaining key costly elements such as the 2 hours private time in the Great Pyramid. I went to Egypt in 1996 and paid $2000 to be on a tour with 80 people! So $2,499 in 2022 is pretty good. My advertising catch phrase is, “If you can find a cheaper tour to Egypt with what this tour package includes…then take it!”
Some of you prefer a more “lux” tour and I will offer those again in the future. But the ideal of this tour is to make Egypt available to the budget traveler.
I have also created a scholarship program to offer assistance to anyone who can’t afford the trip without financiad aid. If you need financial aid to attend, please inquire and if you would like to donate to the scholarship programs, please let me know!

Mobility Requirements:

  • Travelers must be able to climb 5 flights of stairs and be able to walk, unassisted, for up to one mile. Some hotels or restaurants may not have elevators and the Nile cruise ships do not have elevators. And some of the sites require walking in a hot sun, on uneven ground, for a few hours. The climb into the Great Pyramid requires the ability to climb at a slope, in a hunched position, for about 20 yards. I will lead tours in the future that will be more accommodating to mobility assistance. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is a Covid vaccination required to travel to Egypt?
    While the Covid vaccine is recommended, it is not required for entry into Egypt at this time. You will need a PCR test showing you are Covid negative to enter Egypt. 
    Best you take your PCR on Monday November 7 or Tuesday November 8.
  • What are the risks of cancellation of the trip?
    I HIGHLY recommend you get travel insurance though. I recommend Travel Insured.
  • Is there any security risks regarding traveling to Egypt at this time?
    There is always some risk anytime you travel to the Middle East, but the Egyptian tour company we are using and their staff are very well connected and will make sure we are kept safe.
  • What is the anticipated size of the group?
    Up to 32. I do believe this tour will sell out or be close to it.
  • Will there be any chance to interact as a group prior to the tour?
    Many opportunities. I will set up Zoom meetings many times prior to the tour so you can meet each other, ask questions, meet me & Abdallah and prepare for the spiritual experiences on the tour.
  • Food and water safety concerns?
    Avoid raw foods that you have not washed and peeled yourself.
    Only drink bottled water.
    Never drink beverages with ice.
    At the hotels, they will use filtered water to wash the produce, but to be as safe as possible, only eat cooked foods.
    NO ICE CREAM. Ice cream melts and then gets refrozen and can be dangerous to eat.
    We will have bottled water on the bus at no charge. You will also have complimentary bottled water at meals.
