The Complete Nile River Pathway of Initiation

A Temple Arts Initiation on the River of Immortality: Awakening the Beauty of the Soul

October 28th – November 7th, 2024
















Join me in Egypt this Fall
to explore the pathways of Divine Kingship & the Ancient Egyptian Priestess Arts


Experience the initiations of Pharaohs & Queens, and countless figures of brilliance throughout history – from Moses & Jesus, to Aristotle & Alexander the Great, to Davinci – what is it about Egypt that catalyzes greatness in the human soul & spirit?  You are about to find out! 

The Nile River Pathway of Initiation


The temples along the Nile River form a pathway of initiation through the energy centers of the Divine Man.  Beginning in the deserts of Nubia with the formidable Temple of Abu Simbel and rising to the Great Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, this sequence of celestial temple activations was an initiatory path in ancient times – one intended to awaken the “deathless state” of the D’jedi The Divine Man/Divine Human.

We will take the full shamanic journey through these epicenters of divine human consciousness, allowing the mystical waters of the Nile & the magic of Isis – primordial wisdom of the Great Mother & spirit of this land – to be our guide.

Be initiated in the Ancient Egyptian Temple Arts tradition. Experience Skybodywork, essential oil therapy, blue lotus ceremony and the sacred sexual priestess path on the cooling waters of the river of life as you reclaim the wisdom of our ancient ancestors in the pilgrimage of a lifetime  

Enter the Temple Within…

The Gift of the Nile in an exclusive tour designed by Akara Sophia through the originally-intended sequence of temple activations on the Nile. You will connect to the power of your Soul through its many lifetimes, the King/Queen codes, & the mysteries of Divine Love & Sacred Empowerment.  This tour is designed for those interested in facilitating the Temple Arts Mysteries and applies to accreditation in our Temple Arts of Sacred Union Facilitator program.  However, its also open to all those seeking the heart of the mystery! Includes a 50+ page overview of the temples & their celestial empowerments to prepare you for the journey, plus a group call with Akara Sophia.  It is truly one of the richest and most profound shamanic journeys you can take on the Nile!

Thursday, October 31st: Set Sail! / Kom Ombo

Set sail for our Nile river cruise this morning! Isis is the Mother of Horus, but to birth the King requires us to face our shadow & integrate the primal masculine fertility power of the crocodile god, Sobek, in Kom Ombo. Kom Ombo is actually 2 identical temples – one to Horus, the other to Sobek – who “face” each other as “mirror-images.” Here we work with the reflective power of the water element to compassionately integrate our shadow so that the primal masculine power of the King may rise.

Blue Lotus medicine ceremony this evening at “The Garden of Eden” – the only remaining island on the Nile to house the elusive blue lotus.
