Superior Technologies And Consciousness Of The Ancients Tour September 15 To October 2, 2014

 

Following on from a hugely successful tour of Egypt in 2013 we are excited to announce our next adventure! For the first time 5 speakers with varied specialties will help guide guests around Peru and Bolivia. Our 5 hosts include the star of the History channels Ancient Aliens and pre-Colombian culture expert Brien Foerster, along with Stephen Mehler, master of Egyptian oral tradition and history, and Gary Evans. We will also be joined by Patricia and Yousef Awyan from The Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism, (who are continuing the teachings of Yousef’s father Abd’el Hakim Awyan, Egyptian indigenous wisdom keeper).

There are many tours of Peru which are “spiritually” based, and many others that focus on the Inca civilization as the sole creators of such iconic stone structures such as Machu Pic’chu and Sachsayhuaman. An important distinction to note about our tours approach to spiritual matters is, we will not be approaching the sites from a “new age” perspective. The ethos of the team working on this tour is to go back in time and try to understand what the original builders of these sites were thinking. Modern interpretations of spirituality are quite often at conflict with this approach. Instead, for those interested, we will simply suggest time to be mindful at the sites, time to contemplate. This will be focussed around the most powerful locations we visit. Many of the sites have palpable atmospheres, many of us are aware of the still feeling in the air we experience when entering a church or cathedral. Sacred Space has a very real “atmosphere”. We will provide opportunities to “tune in” while on location. As always the group dynamic and the people attending will help direct the flow of our experiences. Please speak with Gary for any extra details, or listen to his recent interview on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Mysterious Ancient Sites with Gary Evans interview link

This tour embraces two different but complimentary aspects.

Ancient Technology: we will take an in depth look at the anomalies found at the sites, and show that at least one highly advanced technological civilization preceded the Inca. We will compare this with evidence for a highly sophisticated civilization in Egypt, existing prior to the Dynastic Egyptians. Our hosts will discuss the remarkable indications of what is possibly the world’s greatest secret – that a highly advanced civilization with superior intelligence and capabilities once inhabited our planet thousands of years prior to the claims of most academics.

Consciousness expansion: Gary and Patricia will “hold space” for meditations and group intoning. A number of locations can be activated by sound resonance. Our ancestors had the ability to go deep within for insights; together we will share a journey of self discovery. We will also experience the intense energies at the powerful sacred sites. Join us for the journey of a life time!

Day 8: Sept. 26: Now we inch our way to Machu Picchu, by exploring the northern part of the Sacred Valley.

It is a very sacred space most likely made before the Inca existed, and excellent for ceremony, toning and meditation. After this we thoroughly explore the massive “mother temple” complex of Ollantaytambo, which was in use for thousands of years before the Inca. It has some of the most magnificent examples of megalithic “lost ancient technological works” to be seen anywhere. Overnight Hotel San Augustin:
