Awakening wonders within & without

Epic 900km deluxe Nile cruise

Join our 900km journey to Abu Simbel, a remarkable temple located on the Nile in the very south of Egypt. This ancient temple is dedicated to the root chakra, which is associated with our sense of grounding and knowing. The temple’s architecture and intricate carvings depict significant mythological stories and various symbolic representations of the ground of being. Visitors can admire the grandeur of the temple’s colossal statues and explore the inner chambers filled with vibrant colours and detailed hieroglyphics. This sacred site serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of finding stability and balance within ourselves. The spiritual significance of Abu Simbel attracts people from all over the world, seeking to connect with their roots and enhance their sense of well-being.
