A Taste of the Mysteries of Egypt.  Presented by Lane deMoll Wednesday evening, May 31 from 7-9 pm at Pine Grove Community House in Manzanita  Join me as I recount tales of my March trip to Egypt led by Shamanic Journeys Ltd. Not simply a travelogue. Egypt has fascinated me since I was a child and I went there to immerse myself in the places and legends of its gods and goddesses, particularly the Isis/Osiris story. You’ll hear about a private ceremony between the paws of the Sphinx as the sun came up on the Equinox and an initiation in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, as well as the magic at lesser known sites as we sailed down the Nile. One of our guides translated the Egyptian Book of the Dead from hieroglyphics and another grew up in Luxor among the ancient sites. We were giving to the sites as they were giving to us.  It was a journey of transformation.
