FOR OVER A SPAN OF 30 YEARS THERESA & EMIL HAVE BEEN WALKING THESE ANCIENT SITES TOGETHER
WITH SEEKERS OF LIKE-MIND.
YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN THEM ON THIS SPECIAL JOURNEY OF HEALING & DISCOVERY.
The sacred spaces within the temples of Egypt were built specifically to energize the sacred spaces within ourselves.. And within our sacred spaces lies the answer to our destiny and meaning in this life.
Throughout this transformational journey experience for yourself the special energy of the Great Pyramid and what it means for you personally. The Sphinx, together with the Great Pyramid, are doorways into our ancient past…and into our innermost sacred selves.
Egypt is a land whose origin is shrouded in mystery. Before 3,000 B.C., a civilization suddenly sprang forth with a fully formed language and belief system. No one can say for certain when the Sphinx and Great Pyramid were built.
Even today, how the Great Pyramid was built, or for what purpose, remains an enigma. This special experiential journey is an opportunity for you to investigate these great mysteries yourself.
- The Great Pyramid, just to ourselves, for up to 2 hours when it is closed to the public. The world’s greatest transducer of energy, experience how its mystical presence can greatly accelerate your spiritual evolution.
- Sunrise at the Sphinx, just our group. The mystery of the Sphinx is that it is a gateway, the gateway into TIME itself, and from there into Infinity.
- Cruise in style on a 5 star Nile ship!
- Private access to the island of Philae where the magnificent Temple of Isis is located, for sunrise.
- Immerse yourself in the grandeur that is the Temple of Luxor, who’s design is symbolic of the human body. This magnificent Temple reflects how the ancient Egyptians felt that the human body is a living temple of the spirit.
- Experience the awe-inspiring Temples of Karnak, the largest temple complex of the ancient world.
- Travel to Dendera, the site of a spectacular temple dedicated to the goddess of love, music & dance, where her loving embrace is still so powerfully present.
- Remember ancient mysteries as you explore the Valley of the Kings, place of Eternal Peace, location of King Tut’s tomb, plus more in a spectacular setting on the West Bank of the Nile.
- Float down the Nile on our own felucca (Egyptian sailboat), caressed by warm the warm breezes, immersed in the same scenery as ancient ones.
- Indulge your shopping fantasies in bazaars straight out of “1001 Arabian Nights.”
- Plus so much more!

The Mena House was initially a hunting lodge, built in 1869 for the Egyptian Khedive Isma’il Pasha.

Family Nurse Practitioner (retired),
Author of “Deathwalker-Journeys of Life, Death & Beyond,” researcher in neuroscience, the world’s expert for over 40 years on Power PlacesTM around the world.
Since my first experience at a power place in 1979 where connections to my inner Highest Self effortlessly came through, I have sought out mystical places with special energies such as the Great Pyramid, Sphinx, Machu Picchu, the Mayan temples and pyramids. For almost 25 years I practiced nursicompany my husband named and founded in the early 80’sng, starting at the age of 16 as a candy striper and then as a nursing aide in a convalescent hospital to assist in putting myself through college to become an RN. As an RN I worked in emergency rooms, intensive care units, acute cardiac care units, birthing labor and delivery of newborns, cancer treatment units, post operative and recovery room care, rehabilitation medicine, and did hospice work. In the early 80’s I obtained an advanced certificate for Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from University of California, Davis’ Medical School in Family Practice. As a Nurse Practitioner I worked in Family Medicine, a rheumatology practice (the study and treatment of joint and inflammatory immune system diseases), and in Neurology, specializing in headache management and chronic pain treatments.
Since the early 70’s I have extensively studied the then new field of neuro-immunology. I have practiced various forms of subtle energy medicine and holistic medicine, in addition to instructing patients on behavioral and cognitive techniques to help with pain control, anxiety and stress. The training and practice of Western medicine in various medical disciplines, with the over forty years of in-depth metaphysical studies coupled with subtle energy medicine know-how, allows a unique perspective in bridging science and spirituality.
In the early 90’s I left medicine to help run “Power PlacesTM,” an international custom group tour company my beloved husband Toby named and founded in the early 80’s. “Power PlacesTM” is now a commonly used term that relates to many spiritual and mystical sites around the world with special powerful energies. Examples of such sites would be Machu Picchu, Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid and Sphinx, the ancient temples in Tibet plus many more around the world. Power PlacesTM originated the travel niche of “transformational travel” and is widely acknowledged as the leader in spirit-centered journeys. “National Geographic’s” Traveler’sMagazine wrote that Power PlacesTM is the granddaddy of spiritual tours. As Director and Vice President I was in charge of the international on-site tours, and international conference management.
I’ll be collaborating on a book with Emil, a longtime dear friend of myself and Toby. For years he and Toby conducted transformational tours through the incredible temples and ancient sites of Egypt. They talked about writing a book together, however, Toby passed a little over three years ago and the book never happened In the recent re-writing and drafting up of “Deathwalker-Journeys of Life, Death & Beyond” for publication I enlisted Emil’s expertise and assistance to review the chapters that deal with ancient Egypt. It was then the project of working together on his and Toby’s book came up. Expected release is fall of 2021.
Emil Shaker, Egyptologist
Widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading Egyptologists, in addition, he is the “Encyclopedia Britannica” of ancient Egypt’s hidden mysteries. Even after 43 years of guiding, he brings an authenticity that irresistibly draws a person into the mysteries still present in these sacred temples. The love he has for these ancient temples, coupled with profound understanding of their hidden mysteries, provides a “key” to the person’s own wisdom within. Throughout this special experiential program he will share his 4 decades knowledge on ancient Egypt mythology, cosmology and his unique insights into their teachings on life, death and the after life.
On meeting Emil one is captured by his genuine warmth, great sense of humor and his wondrous enthusiasm for “life.” One of his great joys is sharing his beloved homeland of Egypt with those who are fortunate to be able to be with him. He awaits to walk with you through these ancient holy places as the temples reveal their secrets to their dearest “son.”
