Mysteries Unfold II: Take time off to retreat with us for 12 days of pure relaxation, serenity and tranquillity up the Hapi (Nile) River. This will be an inspiring fortnight of total immersion into ancient Afrikan mysteries and consciousness expansion practices in sacred spaces. Frontier medical research, psychobiology and quantum sciences agree with our ageless wisdom teachings that a change of environment and spiritual practice in ancient sacred centres; transforms consciousness, connects mind with quantum and cosmic power-fields and heals the body-temple. For those who theoretically studied Kemetic Science with the Amen-Ra Institute, our retreats will offer the direct experience of the knowledge thus far shared.
Full 12-Day Programme
The Amen-Ra Institute will facilitate a Full 12-Day Sacred Journey aimed at restoring and re-connecting the seeker with their eternal and original core.
