About this trip

Are you ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime to Ancient Egypt? The Ancient Egyptians were incredible alchemists whose accomplishments include amazing architectural wonders and magical ritual rites. 

Our unique 13-day pilgrimage begins on the eve of the Fall Equinox which is an auspicious time of rebalancing, aligning and empowering intentions.   On September 19th, 2020 we gather at the Giza plateau where we will stay at the beautiful Mena House and commence with a welcoming ceremony and special openings of the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx for private meditation time. 

After the first few days of visiting Giza, the step pyramid of Sakkara, the sun temple Abu Ghurab and the famous Egyptian Museum in Cairo, we fly to Luxor where we will journey down the Nile on a private luxury river boat.  We will then spend the next 7 days sailing the Nile traveling the path of the Pharaohs in times gone by from temple to temple soaking up the beauty and transmissions of these ancient archeological marvels.  During our sail we will have plenty of time to rest, reflect, and engage in gentle yoga and sound healing practices to deepen and integrate the journey. 

A special feature of our unique Mystical Alchemy Egyptian Pilgrimage is our interactive retreat journal which will help participants document their journey and harvest the most out of it.  In addition to our live sound healing sessions, participants will receive recorded guided meditations, videos and other support material that will help you awaken to your mystical transformation.  This material can be accessed indefinitely and has been an amazing tool for transformation for many of Heather and Donny’s retreat clients. 

A few highlights along the Nile include visits to Hathor’s temple at Dendera, Osiris’s temple at Abydos, Sekhmet’s shrine in Karak, Luxor temple as sunset, Valley of the Kings, Queen Hetshepsut’s Temple, and the Temple of Isis at Philea where we will also enjoy an evening Sound and Light Show and more!

Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreats

We are the founders of the Black Swan Temple and the Mystical Alchemy prayerformance group! We offer sacred sound healing, yoga, Aerial Yoga Play, high vibrational plant based cuisine retreats out of our beautiful nature sanctuary in the lush tropical part of Maui, Hawaii!!!


I was so well taken care of. The meals provided were incredible, the host and hostess so warm and inviting, and the experience in yoga and personal sessions provided respite and grounding for my mind, body, and soul. I loved the accommodations in which I had a darling personal bungalow. The hosts provided guidance on what and where to explore on the island and I had a blast! Top notch getaway wit
I had a wonderful time learning yoga, getting to know the others on retreat, and working with Heather and Donny on my goals for the week. They are very dedicated and focused on helping you accomplish your goals, whether it be exploring Maui, trying aerial yoga, or encouraging you to journal and explore yourself. The location is very relaxing and the perfect place to get away and reset.
My wife and I had a great time. It was definitely an out-of-the-box experience for us. Heather and Donny are super nice and caring people. We really felt at home. We didn’t really know what to expect with the yoga and only eating a vegetarian diet for a few days. But it was fantastic. They are excellent cooks and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back again one day! I definitely recommend booking the treehouse with a private bathroom. It made things a lot easier especially at night.
Heather and Donny are wonderful hosts! Thank you for a great experience!
Wonderful experience! I was hesitant to attend given I hadn't tried aerial yoga before but the yoga swings were easy to work and Heather's instruction was simple to follow and patient. The stretches you get from the swing are amazing. Even better than the yoga stretching is the mindfulness practice that Heather and Donnie provide each day. So powerful and transformative. If you're thinking of doing this retreat - do it - the universe is talking to you!
