Go here for all info!


Receive initiatory activations with the potent energies of Egypt.


Engage the alchemy of resurrection, crystalline DNA activation, and planetary healing.


Attune your vessel for next-level upgrades and conscious ascension.

Join your Priestess Facilitators, Dawn DelVecchio, MA and Emmi Mutale, MA for an intimate pilgrimage to Egypt’s sacred sites.

Beloved sister,

If you are a woman dedicated to your own spiritual ascension … If you know you are called to be in sacred service as part of your Earth walk … If the alchemy and potency of Egypt has been calling you … Then this is for you.

In a circle of 12 women we will connect with the crystalline frequencies of these ancient power spots in order to awaken dormant DNA, encode our fields with Light, and engage our Soul Missions in service to planetary ascension. 

Together, we will weave high planetary service with celebration and sisterhood, through ceremony, deep journeying, crystalline DNA activation and planetary grid-work.

“This is the needed “Spiritual Medicine” of our time!”

Crystalline Activations, Upgrades and Initiation 

The Priestesses have been called to Egypt for several decades now. Preparing for this time of ascension, sacred sisters have sojourned to the ancient lands in order to activate Codes of multidimensional, crystalline remembrance.   

Now, as the quickening of LIGHT serves as a wrecking ball for the unloving systems that cannot abide in New Earth, we are asked to hold the Light of Ascension ever-more firmly. It is essential that we be grounded, anchored and activated as holy women, in or to be in service to Gaia and all of life.

We, the Priestesses, are the conduits to ground and root this New Light, with Egypt’s highly activating and alchemizing lands supporting us.

When we attune to the ancient temples, sacred sites, and the sacred waters of the great Nile River, we make ourselves available for Soul-deep healing, remembrance and rapid expansion of consciousness.


Priestess ~ Mother ~ Queen

As with many ancient Goddesses worldwide, the Great Mothers of Egypt have been activating women to awaken and remember our spiritual “plan” for this incarnation.   Isis, Hathor and Sekhmet hold the Light Codes of remembrance for the true, Priestess-Mother-Queen energies – those lost to us during the epoch of density, fear and masculine domination.

These Goddesses invite us to reawaken our ancient gifts through the high-frequency Light Codes of Egypt’s temples, chambers and portals. We answer their sacred call so that we may serve as feminine emissaries during this blessed, formidable, and auspicious transition of consciousness on Earth. 

Our pilgrimage is for women devoted to spiritual service through sacred practices and personal alchemy.


I am truly grateful for Emmi’s nurturing guidance that comes from a deep place of working for the highest and greatest good. She lovingly and professionally leads and holds space with devotion and attentiveness to the unique energies and needs of the group. (I have benefited) tremendously from her transmissions.

Karlyn, USA

Dawn gives thoroughly. Her worldly and otherworldly knowledge of the feminine shows up in everything she does. She has integrity and a heart full of love for all. She is unafraid to speak the truth. She is the kind of leader we need for these times. Dawn is the real deal.

Vivian Jane Powers, MotherSpirit Priestess, Performing Artist, Priestess of TRUTH

Highlights & What You Can Expect

We have specifically curated this intimate Priestess retreat & pilgrimage in order to ensure each sister in attendance receives the gifts of the Goddess as Priestess, Mother & Queen. In addition to the potent activations you will experience at sacred sites and in ceremony, you can expect …


Luxurious accommodations in Aswan, Luxor, Abydos & Cairo.


An extraordinary, 4-day sail down the great Nile River – River of Kings and waterway of LIFE eternal.


3 life-changing private access visits to the Osirian, The King’s Chamber, and the Sphinx Paws.


Visits to Priestess Island, the temple of Isis, Hathor’s temple and Sekhmet’s holy chamber.


Alchemical healing to transform old grief and fear patterning.

Co-create healing ceremonies for Mother Earth and the collective.


Connect with the ancient Egyptian Goddesses & Gods through shamanic journeying & ritual.


Energetic upgrades through planetary grid & stargate work, a water attunement ceremony, shamanic journeying, and of course, visits to Egypt’s most potent sites.

This pilgrimage offers nothing less than the unapologetic activation of your Soul Mission!


Exclusive Access Visits 

Regardless of how one visits Egypt, when you come with an open heart for service, you will receive the upgrades and activations you need for next-level ascension. AND  … it is during private access visits to specific, light-encoded sites where you can generate extraordinary power for healing and transformation.

 In addition to our sailing trip, other ceremonies and inner journeys, we have secured three exclusive, 2-hour private sessions for you:

The Osirion Temple at Abydos

The ancient temple of Osirion was the location of high-level initiation rites for priests, priestesses and pharaohs. These were death-resurrection rites that allowed initiates to face their fears and strengthen their powers in order to serve the people. Here we will conduct a ceremony of initiation and honoring of the many ways we have each gone through cycles of ego death and rebirth into higher levels of consciousness and response-ability.

The King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid

The King’s Chamber is a place of extraordinary, electro-magnetic pulsations. To leverage these energies, we will take time for quiet reflection first, followed by a toning session in order to harness and focalize and direct the energies for planetary service and personal ascension.

Sphinx’s Paws

This is a significant power spot for projecting healing frequencies out into the world. And that’s exactly what we will do as we absorb, amplify and send forth the power of our collective hearts for Earth Gaia and all of life.


With Emmi’s help, I am able to bring playful, loving light to dark and painful situations and emotions, often leading to immediate shifts in my external world and an ability to face difficulties with a greater sense of empowerment, energy and tenderness toward those near and dear to me. I hope that many, many women come to be touched by Emmi’s healing work and by her who-she-is-ness.

Katlego, SA

Dawn is a beautiful example of a holder of divine light, guiding other women to hold reverence for themselves and step into their own Goddess power. It has been an honor working and learning with her.

Daily Itinerary for Our Egypt Priestess Pilgrimage

Subject to small changes dependent on speed of sailing, etc.

Day 1: Welcome to Egypt, Sister!

Heissa and Priestess Islands, Aswan

November 19, 2024

We will meet at the hotel lobby in Aswan at 6pm and head to Heissa Island for a sumptuous welcome dinner and to open sacred space and initiate our pilgrimage with a fire ceremony and womb activation.

Afterwards, we will head over to the Priestess Island for a night visit to the original gate that used to lead to Philae Temple (priestesses and others on pilgrimage would have passed through this gate to enter the temple).

Overnight at a hotel in Aswan.
Meals: Dinner


Day 2: The Isis Activation Ceremony & Isis Temple

Philae Temple of Isis, Aswan

November 20, 2024

Our morning begins back on Priestess Island in ceremony with a potent energy transfer called the “Isis Activation,” given to Dawn in 2018. The activation transmits a frequency to support your sacred harmonization of inner feminine and masculine energies, as well as your priestess alignment as emissary of Divine Mother.

After the ceremony, we will visit the Philae temple, dedicated to Isis, Osiris, and Horus. Built during the reign of Ptolemy II (circa 284 to 246 bce), this temple served as a pilgrimage destination for priestesses (especially those dedicated to Isis) and priests for hundreds of years. The temple walls contain scenes of Isis bringing Osiris back to life, giving birth to Horus and mummifying Osiris after his death. The temple was moved from its original location during the building of the Aswan dam.

After our time at the temple, we will pack up and check out of our hotel to board our dahabiya, traditional Nile sailboat. After dinner we will gather for a sharing circle and attunement to the Nile.

Overnight onboard dahabiya sailboat.
Meals: B, L, D

Day 3: Healing & Awakening

Kom’Ombo Temple of Sobek and Horus, Kom’Ombo

November 21, 2024

Our focalizing theme for today is healing for self and planet. We begin in ceremonial space after breakfast, followed by a visit to the Kom’Ombo temple, which originally served as hospital and healing temple, dedicated to the Gods Sobek and Horus.

 The ancient Egyptians understood the importance of combining medicine and energy healing such that people would come from all around the world to receive healing here. Kom’Ombo is also a birthing temple and you will get to experience the beautiful images of women giving birth on its walls. The temple acoustics are particularly activating, with sound that carries through the walls of the temple from one part to the other.

We will have the opportunity to attune to the mystical acoustics together, activating personal healing we may each request, then amplifying and radiating these frequencies for Earth.

Overnight onboard dahabiya sailboat.
Meals: B, L, D

Day 4: First Time, First Breath & Planetary Rebirth


November 22, 2024

Gathering in sacred space after breakfast, we will learn about the Egyptian “Zep Tepi” (“First Occurrence” or original world) and prepare to deepen our gnosis of the death and rebirth process as revealed through the story of Isis, Osiris and their child, Horus.

Then we will disembark for a day of exploration at the Gebel-al-Silsila archeological site and the Edfu temple.

Gebel-al-Silsila was an important destination for ceremonies and rituals, and a place of devotion for many deities, including Amun, Sobek, Habi and others, with each deity representing different aspects of life and nature. Most monuments, mainly shrines, are cut directly into the cliff face creating an awe-inspiring landscape, with the biggest structure being the rock-cut temple of Hormoheb. 

One of the best-preserved shrines in Egypt, the Edfu Temple of Horus holds many secrets, including those of what the ancient Egyptians called Zep Tepi, “the first occurrence”, along with the mysteries of death and rebirth, as is modeled by the God Horus, son of Isis. The inscriptions on Edfu temple walls provide important information on language, myth and religion during the Hellenistic Period in Egypt, including scenes of the conflict between Horus and Set.

To the West of the main entrance is the Birth House, also called the Mamisi, where the annual Festival of Coronation was held to honor the divine birth of Horus and the pharaoh.You will find several scenes depicting the story of Horus’ divine birth in the presence of Hathor and other birth-related deities inside the Mamisi.

Overnight onboard dahabiya sailboat.
Meals: B, L, D

Day 5: Creation & Fertility on the Nile


November 23, 2024

On our last morning aboard ship we will gather after breakfast to focalize our intentions upon the energies of fertile creativity, before disembarking for Esna town and Esna temple.

Esna is one of the most spectacular temples along the Nile, with still-vibrant frescoes and intricate carvings. Esna temple was dedicated to the lesser-known, ram-headed God Khnum, and his Goddess consort, Sekhmet. Khnum is associated with creation, fertility, and the annual flooding of the Nile river. He was said to be the creator of humankind, shaping us from clay on his potter’s wheel. Thus the temple served as a center for rituals honoring Khnum and his role in the creation and rejuvenation of life.

After our time in Esna, we will check in at our hotel at Luxor’s 5-star Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel situated in the heart of Luxor, and with stunning views of the Nile. You’ll have the chance for some quiet time, a dip in the pool or spa treatment before we gather for dinner at a local restaurant.

Overnight at Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel
Meals: B, L, D

Day 6: Awaken Your Queen

Temples of Hatshepshut, Luxor and Karnak

November 24, 2024

Following breakfast, we will meet in the hotel lobby to begin our ancient Thebes, full-day excursion.

We begin at the temple of female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, considered to be a masterpiece of ancient Egyptian architecture. Hatshepsut was the Great Royal Wife of Pharaoh Thutmose IIand the fifth Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt, ruling first as regent, then as queen from c. 1479 BC until c. 1458 BC.

Hatshepsut’s reign is noted as a period of great prosperity and general peace for her people. She serves as a model for the Embodied Queen. After her death, there was an attempt to remove her from official accounts of Egyptian historiography. Sadly, her statues were destroyed, her monuments defaced, and many of her achievements ascribed to other pharaohs.

From here we move on to explore the Karnak Temple Complex, dedicated to Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Karnak is the largest complex of temples, pylons, chapels and other structures. The entire area was known to ancient Egyptians as ipet-isut, meaning, the “most sacred and selected of places”, and it was the main worshiping place of the 18th Dynasty New Kingdom, dedicated primarily to the god Amun.

The ancient Goddess Mut – also worshiped here, was known as the Mother Goddess, or the mother of all.

Sekhmet’s Chamber

Another sacred highlight of our trip – and one of the most powerful spots in Egypt – is Sekhmet’s chamber, which is part of the Karnak temple complex. This small, guarded space houses a large statue of the Goddess, emitting an energy that is out of this world. Some Egyptians say that of all the statuary found in these ancient lands, it is Sekhmet’s alone which remains a “living” energy. Many report seeing the statue move as people pray, chant and sing in the chamber.

As one of our leading Goddess energies, Sekhmet guides us into our Queen embodiment, and what it means to fully claim our sovereign throne.

We will end our day at the Luxor temple complex, the largest religious center in ancient Egypt, constructed over hundreds of years by a number of pharaohs, including Amenhotep III and Tutankhamun. Luxor Temple was known as the place of the First Occasion, where the god Amon is said to have experienced rebirth during the pharaoh’s annual coronation ceremony. If we are lucky, we will get to experience a magnificent light show at the temple complex.

Overnight at Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel
Meals: B, L, D

Day 7: Calling in the Great Mother

Hathor’s Temple, Dendera

November 25, 2024

Following breakfast we will check out of our hotel and board a bus for Dendera which houses both the temple of Hathor and the temple of the birth of Isis.

Dendera is one of the most preserved temple complexes in all of Egypt. It was built over many centuries, starting during the Middle Kingdom, and even earlier. The complex includes the Hathor Temple, the Temple of the birth of Isis, a sacred lake (source of water for purifications and sacred rituals), and a sanatorium.

Here we will conduct a small attunement ceremony to activate the Mother Ray, followed by a communion with the most ancient of Mothers, Hathor. Hathor’s temple contains hidden chambers and alleys, as well as a magical ceiling painting and carving of the zodiac and the night sky, featuring sky Goddess Nut.

Following our visit to Dendera, we will get back onto the bus and drive to Abydos, where we check in to the beautiful hotel and healing sanctuary, the House of Life, where we will stay for the next 3 nights.

Overnight at House of Life Hotel & Healing Center
Meals: B, L, D

Day 8: The Initiation of LIGHT

Temple of Seti I, Abydos

November 26, 2024

Abydos is one of the oldest cities in Egypt, regarded as sacred, and considered one of the most important archeological sites in the country.  Following breakfast we will gather for our first of 3 visits to the great complex of ancient Abydos: the Temple of Seti the 1st. This temple complex contains 7 distinct chambers, each dedicated to a specific deity, and connected to the seven chakras, on the walls of which are depictions of Osiris’ resurrection as well as of ancient technology, including an image of a modern-looking airplane! In one of the chambers, we will also get to connect with the energy of light.

For lunch, we will visit the Flower of Life guest house and healing center, for a roof top ceremony and talk by Ameer – a true guardian of the Temple of Seti and an elder with tremendous wisdom. You will also get a chance to shop for local souvenirs at the guest house, and visit a rooftop collection of crystals.  

Lunch is followed by a second, late afternoon visit to the temple for a group meditation. Later on we will enjoy dinner at the hotel, followed by a sharing circle.

Overnight at House of Life Hotel & Healing Center
Meals: B, L, D

Day 9: Death & Resurrection

Private Visit to Osirion, Abydos

November 27, 2024

The ancient temple of Osirion is known as a high-level initiatory site for priests, priestesses and pharaohs. These were death-resurrection rites that allowed initiates to face their fears and strengthen their powers in order to serve the people and advance as spiritual beings.

We will have private access to the Osirion, located within the Seti 1 complex, which hosts the famous sacred Flower of Life wall carving. Here we will conduct a ceremony of initiation and honoring of the many ways we have each gone through cycles of ego death and rebirth into higher levels of consciousness and response-ability.

We’ll then return to the hotel for lunch, with time for a swim, spa treatment, rest, or optional return to the Temple for a final visit (at additional cost)

Overnight at House of Life Hotel & Healing Center
Meals: B, L, D

Day 10: Destination Giza

Travel to Cairo

November 28, 2024

Following an early check-out from our hotel, we will have a long day’s travel by private bus to Cairo. This is an ideal time for rest, reflection and energy integration. We will also have the chance to conduct a sister-blessing ceremony, giving each woman the opportunity to be fully honored as Priestess, Mother & Queen of her realm!

On arrival in Cairo we will check into our 5-Star hotel, then gather for dinner.

Overnight at hotel TBD


Day 11: Planetary Grid Activation

Private Visits to the King’s Chamber & Paws of the Sphinx

November 29, 2024

We have an early start today and a very potent day it is! With 2 private access visits to the King’s chamber of the great pyramid and the paws of the Sphinx, this day is the culmination of all of the healing and activations we have received during our pilgrimage.

In the King’s chamber we will have time for quiet reflection as well as a toning session in order to harness and focalize the powerful, electromagnetic energies of this planetary massif called the great pyramid.

Following this, we will make our way to the ancient of ancients: the Great Sphinx. This is a planetary power spot for projecting healing frequencies out into the world. And that’s exactly what we will do as we absorb, amplify and send forth the power of our collective hearts for Earth Gaia and all of life.

We will then make our way to a very special essential oils shop to explore the scents of sacred anointing. We will then conclude our pilgrimage with a farewell lunch and closing ceremony.

You will then have the option of a transfer to Cairo International Airport* for your flight home, or join Emmi and Dawn for 1 more night at a local AirBnB (additional fees apply).

*IMPORTANT: Whether you choose to fly home on this day or stay an extra day, please be sure your flight is in the evening. Traffic in Cairo is hectic, and it can take up to two hours to reach the airport from Giza.

Our Accommodations

Our Pilgrimage includes accommodations in Aswan, on a dahabiya vessel along the Nile river, Luxor, Abydos and Cairo. With a combination of 4- and 5-star locales, you can be sure that your experience will be comfortable and well-attended.


Basma Hotel 

In Aswan we will stay at the Basma for our first night.

Basma Hotel is located on the highest point of Aswan next to the famous pharaonic monuments and overlooking the beautiful greenery and the amazing Nile Views.

Each room is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to ensure that guests have the utmost comfort during their stay.

Dahabiya for the River Nile

We will spend 4 nights aboard a beautiful, traditional dahabiya. These are passenger boats used along the Nile. This shallow-bottomed, barge-like vessel has two or more sails and has been around in one form or another for thousands of years. We will dock on shore for the nights, and in the mornings, you will be able to go for a swim in the Nile.

You will be accommodated in en-suite double cabins below deck. The deck itself is an open-air space with comfortable lounging and sun-tanning areas as well as a dedicated space for dining.


Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel

We will spend two nights at Luxor at the Steigenberger Nile Palace hotel.

With its prime location along the Nile, the Steigenberger is an ideal resting spot for us. Your well-appointed room features a balcony or terrace overlooking either the city, the courtyard, or the Nile itself.

Is This Pilgrimage for You?

Egypt itself is highly activating. Combining the potent life-force energy of the great Nile river with the energies of the ancients imbued in the geometry, symbolism and architecture of the lands of Khemet have called many over the centuries. And if you are reading this, you are one of them! 

Here’s how you’ll know that now is your time to answer the call … 


You know there is a higher “mission” your Soul came to fulfill.


You feel called to be in sacred service during this planetary ascension cycle.


You are dedicated to your own spiritual growth.


The alchemy and potency of Egypt is now calling you.


You are ready to receive spiritual upgrades for greater joy, peace, presence & service.


You want to step into your Soul’s highest plan.

This pilgrimage is NOT for you if …


You are not comfortable sharing in a personal, honest and vulnerable way.


You are committed to maintaining beliefs, habits or addictions that you know deep-down no longer serve you.


You do not believe you can claim your greatest potential.


You seek authority outside yourself.


You prefer to attribute your life challenges to others, rather than claim sovereign authority over mind, body & Soul.


You are not physically able to handle the itinerary of a pilgrimage in a desert environment.


Thank you Emmi for your wonderful soul code activations; they are exquisitely gentle and powerful, which are the highest qualities of the feminine. I loved the simplicity and magic of working with the different goddesses of the elements, and yet it was a powerful transformative process, going deep into the essence of life and self. I felt that I was able to release so much of the past and was so enriched by your process.

Kate, Australia

Being able to study with Dawn from day one has always turned out to be more than I expected because she gave me what I needed to learn and not just what I wanted. I’m blessed to have her as my teacher and mentor. She knows her stuff!

Thank you, Emmi, for such a beautiful, powerful, and generous offering! I experienced deep and profound stirrings within my spirit as the activations reawakened soul memories and healed multiple levels of stagnation. You are a gift and I encourage any and all who are called to join in your offerings to step forward in trust that you will be lovingly and safely held in sacred space… deep love and gratitude Emmi!

Frequently Asked Questions

(Important. Please Review)

Why do I have to fill out an application?

Because of the nature of this retreat, we are inviting sisters who know they have a Soul-level mission to support our planetary ascension, and are willing to do the inner work needed to hold high-frequency Light Codes. As much as we love to join with many sacred sisters, for this retreat we are specifically calling forth women who have dedicated themselves to their spiritual ascension and service as feminine emissaries of Light.

What happens once I fill out the application?

Once we receive your application, we will send you an email invitation for a short call via zoom. After that you can choose to make your deposit or pay in full.

How can I make my deposit and other payments?

We accept all Venmo, credit cards*, PayPal*, or personal checks from within the USA.

The 4% processing fee can be avoided if you Pay-In-Full using Venmo for a direct bank transfer, or personal check if you reside in the USA.

How many people will be in this retreat?

Spaces are highly limited for this pilgrimage. We can accommodate a maximum of 12 sisters, including your Priestess Facilitators, Emmi Mutale & Dawn DelVecchio.

Do I need a passport?

Yes. Unless you are an Egyptian citizen, you will definitely require a passport to arrive in Egypt.

Further, it is important to note that on arrival you will receive a Visa stamp. Depending on your nationality, there may be other requirements involved. You are responsible for ensuring you meet the Egypt Tourist Visa requirements in order to obtain an Egypt Tourist visa upon arrival.

How do I get to Egypt?

Egypt is located in the Northeast corner of the African continent. Flights arrive at the Cairo International Airport.

When should I arrive?

The retreat begins on November 19th. We recommend you arrive in Egypt at least one day and ideally two days prior in order to give yourself time to ground, and to adjust to the time difference, temperature and dry climate. Accommodations for these nights are not included in your itinerary or package, but we are happy to offer suggestions.

Will I have time to visit Egypt beyond our itinerary?

Your length of stay is up to you. If you are coming from Asia or the Americas, we recommend you plan to stay a bit longer than the length of our pilgrimage. Since we will not be conducting specific shopping or tomb tours, this gives you the chance to explore the beauty and unique culture of Egypt either before or after our time together.

Will I get any help with planning?

Once you have secured your spot, we will provide you with a comprehensive information packet which includes details on: where to find affordable flights to Egypt, what to bring, when to arrive and other important information.

What if I am new to this work?

If you are a newly awakening lightworker or not-yet initiated priestess, no worries! Your best course of action right now is to read and fill out the application.

Can I have private accommodations?

A single supplement is available for all hotel stays (but not on the boat). The single supplement cost is $1077.

Will my dietary needs be taken into account?

Yes! Your dietary needs will be accommodated in the hotels, restaurants and on the boat. Once you are registered we will request information on your dietary needs.

Will men be with us on this pilgrimage?

In Egypt, it is important – and expected – to have a local guide with us no matter where we go. The local guides are responsible for all the logistics of the trip, and make sure our journey runs as smoothly as possible. It is much more common for the local guides to be men than women.

The men we choose to work with are extremely considerate and kind, will make themselves as invisible as possible, and will not interfere with our daily practices and processes.

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

All requests for cancellation must be submitted in writing via email to Dawn. Regardless of the reason for cancellation, those canceling their booking will forfeit their Non-Refundable Deposit of $1000. You will then be entitled to a refund of a portion of the remaining Retreat Fee in the amounts provided below:

  • If we receive your notice of cancellation at least 60 days before the Retreat, we will refund you 75% of the amount remaining of the Retreat Fees, after deducting the Non-Refundable Deposit.
  • If we receive your notice of cancellation at least 50 days before the Retreat, we will refund you 50% of the amount remaining of the Retreat Fees, after deducting the Non-Refundable Deposit;
  • If we receive your notice of cancellation at least 40 days before the Retreat, we will refund you 25% of the amount remaining of the Retreat Fees, after deducting the Non-Refundable Deposit.
  • Regardless of the reason for cancellation: There will be no refund whatsoever if the notice of cancellation is received 39 days before the Retreat or later.
  • Should the event be canceled by the Retreat Organizers, all fees will be refunded.

Please note that as the Retreat Organizers, we are not responsible for your airline or travel arrangements, and assume no responsibility or liability for losses due to cancellations arranged by the airline carrier.

Do I need travel insurance?

A journey to the ancient sites of Egypt is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and a dedication of time and investment. We strongly encourage you to invest in travel, medical and trip cancellation insurance.

Will I have WIFI access throughout?

Internet may NOT be available at all times. It is usually quite strong at the larger hotels, but we neither guarantee nor promise there will be internet on the Dahabiya or during excursions. This is a great chance to disconnect from social media and to detox from digital conformity and attachment. However, if staying connected is crucial for you, we advise buying an Egyptian SIM card for your phone. You can do this inside the airport upon arrival.


Emmi is an amazing woman, a wonderful healer and a true Sister in the Heart. With Emmi’s I have been able to step into my power, regain my creativity and take the first step towards my Soul Purpose. I am grateful to her beyond words.

Petra Tarnai, Healer and Women’s Circle Leader

The Priestess Retreat I attended with Dawn opened me up to my innate power within. We connected deeply to our bodies, minds and spirits through dance, ceremony, prayers, blessings and deep and authentic connections. I felt seen, heard and truly loved in a container that felt safe and expansive. Dawn leads authentically with her full heart, and humbleness. Thank you Dawn for such a life-changing experience!”
