MERKABA workshop in Egypt

 private meditations in the CHEOPS pyramid

and between SPHINX pawns


sightseeing trips to Cairo and Luxor

 12- 19 April 2013



The Merkaba trips to Egypt in previous years were such a huge success that we have decided to organise a further trip in April 2013. In addition to Tom de Winter’s Merkaba workshop, there will also be the possibility for a completely private visit to the three inner chambers of the Great Pyramid of Cheops and to meditate between Sphinx pawns and visiting places like Cairo and Luxor.


Although the main body of the group originates from Poland, as the seminar is conducted in both languages (Tom de Winter speaks in English, which is then translated into Polish), English-speaking participants are most welcome and those English speakers who joined us on the past four trips greatly enjoyed the experience.
