Join Andrea Mikana-Pinkham and Mark Amaru Pinkham – teachers of the Ancient Egyptian Mystery Teachings
with over 25 spiritual pilgrimage tours of Egypt between them - for an extraordinary Journey into Secret Egypt
that only the most advanced initiates of ancient times were privileged to experience.

While moving up and down the sacred Nile River with Andrea and Mark you will gain special access
into secret temple rooms visited by few tourists; most don't even know they exist!
You will participate in
candlelight rituals of initiation in some of the temples during private morning and evening entrances.
You will stand before temples, pyramids and megalithic structures
that ancient historians claimed to be tens of thousands of years old.
You will learn many of the most ancient and forbidden secrets of the
Djedhi Mystery Teachings that were first brought
to Egypt by the magician priests and priestesses of Isis and Osiris from Atlantis.
And you will lie within the resonant box in the
Great Pyramid during another private entrance
for the
final and ultimate initiation!

This tour is only operated during the most powerful time of the year for initiation, when the Sun transits through Scorpio,
the Zodiacal sign of alchemical transformation and spiritual rebirth.

The Ancient Enigmas of Malta
March 19 - 25, 2017

With Dr. Robert M. Schoch and his wife Catherine Ulissey

Join Dr. Robert Schoch, his wife Katie Ulissey and SSJ's Director Andrea Mikana-Pinkham,
who led our April 2013 and March 2015 journeys,
for an in-depth exploration and reanalysis of the most ancient structures on Malta,
while also enjoying and absorbing modern Maltese hospitality.

The tiny archipelago nation of Malta, located just south of Italy, is home to some of the most
 ancient and mysterious megalithic structures on Earth.
These are not just crude stone circles or free-standing pillars, but finely constructed stone temples
 and other structures, some of which are composed of numerous levels or stories.
And the oldest ones date back to over seven thousand years ago!

Dr. Robert M. Schoch
Featured Speaker

Dr. Schoch is one of the foremost authorities regarding the origins and extreme antiquity of civilizations around the world.
He has forced his fellow academics to rethink not only the when and why of the beginnings of high culture and civilization,
but also the earliest dating of many ancient sites - marshaling evidence demonstrating that in some cases
extremely ancient structures were reused in later, but still very ancient, times.
On this trip Dr. Schoch will share with you firsthand his thoughts and insights on the megalithic structures of Malta.

Dr. Robert M. Schoch, a full-time faculty member at Boston University since 1984,
earned his Ph.D. (1983) in Geology and Geophysics at Yale University.
In the early 1990s, Dr. Schoch’s geological analyses of the Great Sphinx demonstrated that
the statue is thousands of years older than the conventional dating of 2500 BCE,
bringing him international fame and recognition.
His assertions that there was an earlier cycle of civilization before civilization is supposed to have existed,
though attacked by many members of the Egyptological and archaeological establishments, have stood the test of time. Stunning confirmation of Dr. Schoch’s views has come with the discovery of the highly sophisticated
12,000-year-old site of Göbekli Tepe in southeastern Turkey.
In recent years, further data and re-analysis of his previous work has led Dr. Schoch to conclude that
the origins of the Sphinx go back millennia further than he first proposed.

Dr. Schoch is the author of numerous books and articles, both academic and popular, including Forgotten Civilization:
The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future (Inner Traditions, 2012).

Our Sacred Sites Journey will take place during the week of the Spring Equinox in March 2017.

We'll have a special access morning visit to Mnajdra and Hagar Qim for the Spring Equinox sunrise!
As the ancient people who built this magnificent stone temple did, we'll watch the Sun come up over the mountains
to the East and see the light it casts into the temple's entrance and inner sanctum.

The group is filling quickly, so we encourage you to reserve your space NOW!
