A Priestess Journey

The Inundation: A Priestess Journey March 13 - 24, 2023
Inundation: to cover with a flood; overflow; the process of a dry area being permanently drowned or submerged.
In Ancient Egypt, the Season of Flooding, was called Akhet, The Inundation. This was the time of the year when the Sacred Nile River would flood. This happened every year at the exact same time replenishing the nutrients in the soil.
We have aptly named this devotional journey, The Inundation, because it is a flooding, a saturation, an inundation of our sacred temple bodies by the light codes, the wisdom, the holy waters, the mysteries of Ancient Kemet (Egypt) so that we may be of greater service in the world.
Since ancient times, women have prayed, danced and sung in ritual celebration – invoking energies of the Universe, manifesting beauty, opening portals to subtle realms, and transmitting blessings through their bodies. Journey to the sacred temples of Kemet, in tandem with a powerful group of 21st century priestesses, to activate codes of rememberance of Black African civilization and mysticism. This is a pilgrimage of sister souls who have incarnated at this time to connect wombs, hearts and minds for collective healing, and in deep service.
This Kemetic Priestess Journey goes beyond spiritual tourism and self-development. It's for women who have heard the profound call to unite in purpose and prayer. Priestesses Aja Shah and Monika Nataraj (with special guest Shaman Marcela Lobos) are humbly honored to share ceremonial space and hold the container for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Join us as we explore spiritual magic, forgotten feminine secrets, and ritual grace guiding our exclusive dive into the mysteries of Ancient Kemet/Egypt. Allow Her infinite gifts to ascend within, revealing your unique life's purpose and catalyzing each woman's authentic, multi-faceted priestess presence.
"For every woman is a Priestess of her own realm. A warrior spirit, wielding the sword of wisdom's mysteries. She need not ask permission to ignite her power, to embody her inner Auset/Isis, Het-Heru/Hathor, Maat, Nebt-Het/Nephthys, Bast, Sekhmet. Every woman is a purveyor of ritual transformation. A sacred portal. Able to cut cords. Shed skins. Face the fire. Dance with truth. Walk beauty's way and hold space for others to do the same." ~ MN

“O people of the earth,
men and women born and made of the elements,
but with the spirit of the Divine within you,
rise from your sleep of ignorance!
Be sober and thoughtful.
Realize that your home is not on the earth but in the Light.
Why have you delivered yourselves unto death, having power to partake of immortality?”
~ Ancient Egyptian Proverb
