I have always been drawn to Egypt and have known that one day I would visit. That time has finally come and I am excited to invite you to travel with me to this powerful and ancient land on what I know will be a spectacular spiritual experience and a profound unfolding of the soul and spirit.
Join me and my co-facilitator Dr. Rima Bonario for a powerful deep-dive course: This course is designed to activate and awaken your Personal Divine Matrix through a powerful blend of ancient sacred spaces, soulful ritual, deep energy work, and potent practices to help you draw forth the fullness of your Essence and translate that into everyday living.

Since working with Tj I have learned to honor my convictions, be very clear about what I will and will not do, protect my energy and my finances before I provide, know what restores balance in my body, and make sure I honor that whenever I need to.
Every aspect of my life has transformed! The awakening and love I have experienced from working with you Tj has spiraled out from me to my children, my husband, and my clients. I have even lost 20 lbs!
Tj, the practices and principles you have taught me have had an amazing impact on my life. The thing I noticed the most is how different I feel about myself, my body, and my purpose in life. It's a love-fest over here!
This journey is about YOU and what you need to transform in your life to create greater authenticity, greater vibrancy, and greater soul satisfaction in everyday life. That could look like...

ONLY A FEW PLACES REMAIN SO DON'T DELAY!
From March 6th - 17th, we will travel to Egypt and meet each other in person to anchor our work at the Earth’s physical expression of the divine feminine: The Nile.
The Nile Delta has always been a symbol of the feminine divine. It’s damp, fecund, fertile, growing. It’s powerful when it floods, and it nurtures new growth as it recedes. We are venturing to the cradle of life. Modern-day Egypt may seem like the least likely place to encounter Divine Feminine energy, but in this trip, we will spend our time outside of the modern Egypt experience. We will travel south of Cairo where the pace of life is slower and people are more connected to the land. It is sacred ground with a profound history connecting back to the dawn of human civilization.
And this part of the world is the home of the Goddess known as The Queen of Heaven (or Isis, Inanna, Anat, and Astarte). We will have a private tour of Isis’ Temple at Philae at dawn, where the sacred feminine energy is truly palpable. We will explore rarely seen rooms in several temples that are dedicated to the Goddess, each holding potent, sacred feminine energy. Imagine holding the hands of your sisters in ceremony and ritual connecting us to these ancient power centers, with the intention of more easily connecting into and anchoring our own Divine Matrix energy!
In addition to our nights in world-class hotels, we will relax by day and be rocked to sleep at night as we sail for 6 magnificent days and nights on her gentle waters aboard a private Dahabiya, the same style of boat used in antiquity to navigate her miles of luscious reed-lined waterways, chartered just for us.
During our time together, you will sit in circle with like-minded pilgrims seeking to open to their greatest potential through ritual and deep mystery work. You will be pampered with exquisite food in the most magical locations. And you will have a 60-minute LEAP energy session with Tj or Rima.
DAY 1: Friday, March 6 - Arrive in Cairo by 5 p.m. (Hotel Night in Cairo)
Your tour manager will meet and assist you at Cairo International Airport and escort you to Le Meridian Airport. At the hotel our tour manager will assist with a smooth check-in. Relax at the pool, schedule a spa treatment, have a leisurely dinner on your own. The tour begins later that evening at our Welcome and Awakening Circle with Rima & Tj where we will set our intentions for this sacred pilgrimage. (Please keep in mind that you will need to leave the US on Thursday, March 5th to arrive in Cairo on Friday, March 6th)
DAY 2: Saturday, March 7 - Flight to Luxor, Check in to Private Yacht (Cabin - all cabins are double occupancy) & Visit Luxor Temple at Night
Early morning after breakfast we arrive at Cairo airport for short flight to Luxor, after which we check in our private yacht & enjoy a delicious dinner on board made by our private chef.
We will begin our energy sessions in the afternoon as well as rest and enjoy our first views of the Nile.
After dinner we will visit the magnificently illuminated Temple of Luxor. This temple is deigned to represent the human body. We will use our visit to prime our body and energy system to receive the teachings for each chakra we walk the length of the temple moving from the feet deeper into the temple towards the head where the holy of holies, the inner sanctuary, is located. This is a wonderful place to focus on physical healing as well as set the intention for the powerful initiations to come.
DAY 3: Sunday, March 8 - Visit Karnak Temple & Set Sail on the Nile
Early morning, we visit the magnificent Karnak Temple where will hold our first initiation ceremony (Earth/Root Chakra). Karnak is the biggest temple complex in Egypt - and a very special place. It is dedicated to the God Amun and Mut. As you enter, you walk between rows of rams-headed sphinxes, which originally connected Karnak with Luxor Temple three miles away. Take some time to visit the sacred lake of Karnak, ask for purification and place your intention in your mind's eye into the lake.
The highlight of the visit is a rarely seen small chapel dedicated to Sekhmet, the lioness goddess of compassion and courage. She is associated with feminine fire and healing through destruction. She is a renowned healer and known for her magic and ability to hunt down an imbalance at its origin. In a potent private initiation, we will honor the Goddess and receive the gift of courage to be our authentic selves.
Once back on the boat we start our sailing up the Nile river. We have our second initiation ceremony (Water/Sacral Chakra) while sailing on the Nile followed by energy sessions and enjoying the rest of the day relaxing.
DAY 4: Monday, March 9 - Visit Edfu Temple
This morning after breakfast we will visit Edfu Temple,. Edfu represents the struggle of good and bad through the story of Isis, Osiris, Set and Horus. Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power. The left eye represents the lunar, the moon, the intuitive, the feminine energy. The right eye is connected to the solar, the masculine, the action, and the yang energy. Both are necessary for true power to exist.
We will use this visit to bring into balance our masculine and feminine power centers. In our third initiation ceremony (Fire/Solar Chakra), we will work with balancing the lunar and the solar energies inside of us and awaken our intuitive centers to call in a higher perspective. We will visit the sanctuary in the rear of the temple - temple of Horus his energy is still very preserved. Once back on the boat we start continue sailing, enjoy lunch, circle time, energy sessions, and time to yourself.
DAY 5: Tuesday, March 10 - Visit Komombo Temple and Sail to Aswan
We move towards Aswan we arrive at the Temple of Komombo. This temple is dedicated to two gods, Sobek and Ra Hr. Akhty. Sobek is the crocodile god which represents the Lower Self, and the god Ra Hr, AKA Horus,"Who Is In Heaven" and who represents the Higher Self. This temple holds the Atlantic energy. If you are ready for this experience you will detach from the struggles between our higher and lower self, letting go of fear and negativity as we see struggle depicted on the temple walls. We will have our fourth initiation ceremony (Air/Heart) as we bridge the upper and lower selves/chakras. Once back on the boat we start continue sailing, enjoy lunch, circle time, enjoying energy sessions, and time relaxing.
DAY 6: Wednesday, March 11 - Visit Aswan - Felucca ride and Bazaar
We will enjoy a relaxing day of energy sessions and then a visit points of interest in Aswan. Here we will hold our fifth invitation ceremony (Aether/Throat Chakra).
DAY 7: Thursday, March 12 - Private Visit to Isis; Temple at Philae and Day Sailing
One of the trip's highlights, we will take a pre-dawn boat ride out to the island of Philae for a private sunrise meditation and ritual. This powerful experience will open your heart so that you can receive Isis's blessings and medicine. This isle represents a fusion of three great civilizations Egyptian, Greek and Roman. The presence of Isis is palpable in the inner sanctum, the Holy of Holies of her temple. It is often many guests' favorite spot in all of Egypt. Here we will hold our sixth invitation ceremony (Third Eye). We will invite the Goddess to open our sense of intuition and Divine Knowing igniting the parts of you that are sleeping, activating divinity codes and turning on your inner light. This ceremony will uplift and awaken your soul!
This is our final day on the Nile is a day of deep integration. After lunch back on the boat, we dive deeper into our circle time, taking our learning into our core. We will complete our energy sessions and have time for journaling and visiting as we make our way back to Luxor.
DAY 8 - Friday, March 13 - Drive to Abydos (Hotel Night)
Early morning after breakfast we will drive in our air conditioned coach to Sohag City where the famous Abydos Temple is located. After lunch you will have time to rest and settle in. We will hold a night circle ceremony and then head to bed early to rest up for the next day's events.
DAY 9 - Saturday, March 14 - Abydos Temple (Hotel Night)
After our early morning breakfast, we will visit Abydos Temple. Abydos is dedicated to Osiris and houses the nine great beings known as the Ennead. These temples rest next to and above the most ancient Osirian, one of the premier power places on the planet. It includes a more recent temple built by Seti I, which contains the most beautiful bas relief of any temple in Egypt.
We will conduct our 7th and final initiation ceremony in the Hall of the Osirian opening the crown chakra. Here we will also see the ancient symbol of the flower of life found on the stones and close our learning circle.
DAY 10 - Sunday, March 15 - Return to Cairo, Cairo Museum and Bazaar (Hotel Night)
After our early morning short flight back to Cairo, we visit the Egyptian Museum of Cairo to view the spiritual legacy of priest kings, queens, scribes and healers. The museum holds an astounding collection of Egyptian antiquities and exhibits over 120,000 artifacts, including those magnificent treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamen. Here you'll see the gods and goddesses of Egypt that you've been getting to know, rendered in hieroglyphs and reliefs and witness the legacy of the supposed "heretic" pharaoh, Akhenaton, the first monotheist. If you like, you can see the mummies exhibit and more.
Following lunch, no trip to Cairo would be complete without a visit to Khan Al-Kahlil Bazaar. The bazaar is loud, crowded, colorful, and exciting! Full of all kinds of goods and shiny baubles, you can find the typical tourist trinkets here, but don't let them distract you from the genuinely fine shopping to be found here also. After shopping we check in at Le Meridian Hotel Pyramid for the night.
Day 11: Monday, March 16 - The Great Pyramid, The Sphinx, Gamal's Oil Shop and Farewell dinner
Just when you think the tour couldn't possible be any more amazing...get ready to have your entire being upgraded! This potent day begins after breakfast with and early morning visit to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Nothing will prepare you for the majesty of this ancient wonder. You will enter the pyramid and after climbing to the top of the the narrow passage, we will have a culminating initiation in the King's Chamber to experience the final rebirthing as we come into alignment with our own Divine nature. We will bring forth that which must be unleashed so that we can be free to live the fullness of our soul's calling.
From there we visit the famous Sphinx complex and feel ourselves enlivened by the ancient secrets buried beneath it.
And as if the day isn't already filled with wonder, following lunch, we will have a private visit at Gamal's Essential Oil Shop where we will have the privilege of hearing his his wisdom and knowledge about the chakra system as a 5th generation alchemist. He will bring us from the lofty realms of our crown chakra and our Divine Self all the way back down into out Base chakra so that we may full embody and integrate our Divine nature. To complete the day we will have a Farewell dinner, basking in the reflection of our shared Egyptian experience.
Day 12: Tuesday, March 16 - Breakfast and Prepare for Departure
After a hearty breakfast, you will be escorted to the airport to catch your returning flight home. We recommend you plan for a late morning or mid-day departure to give yourself space in the morning.
An incredibly powerful group of women has begun forming for this program. This is a circle you will not want to miss!

Rima resides in Las Vegas, Nevada with her husband Tobias and her daughter Sophia.
Being driven to succeed, working hard, be assertive, proving myself… All these things led to burnout, exhaustion and frustration in my work and in my body. I had to learn a different way. Entering this Feminine Temple with Rima, was amazing. I now practice the feminine energy of receiving, allowing, and holding space. This is much more in alignment with who I am in my essence and it feels fantastic! I now have new tools that have helped me return to joy in my work and navigate through my life in an empowering, yet feminine, way. Rima is the real deal for transformation and returning to your true self. Working with her is a game-changer!
One of the greatest gifts I received from Rima is knowing what it feels like to work with someone who walks her talk. She demonstrates what it means to be awesome with humility. With her I felt heard, seen and validated as I faced my own challenges. Working with Rima has called me higher and yet at the same time validated my fears and growth areas. This was an incredible combination that gave me the courage to continue my growth while releasing my fear of being seen. I have made so many changes and stepped forward in big ways in my life. If you say yes to working with her you will find a woman who shows up authentically and connects from her heart.
I have worked with and taught divine feminine principles, relationship between the masculine and feminine, and conscious equal partnership for many years. This work has given me an entirely new understanding that, not only has changed how I do life, but will be woven into the next octave of my sacred work in the world. I wouldn't just 'recommend' this work. I would say it is nothing short of a necessary soul requirement for women to reclaim their natural state of divine grace and magic. These lost arts have opened up an entirely new understanding and my body is crying, "Thank you. Thank you. This is how it is supposed to be. This is my natural state."
