The program runs until lunchtime  on the last day. Depending on the time of your flight the taxi will take you to the airport or to your next accommodation in case you need an extra night or decide to extend your stay in Luxor.

HOW DO I GET FROM LUXOR AIRPORT TO VILA AMIRA?

You will be picked up from the airport (or train station if you choose to come by train from Cairo) by our taxi driver.

WHAT KIND OF FOOD CAN I EXPECT?

We will have our own our private chef Hani cooking for us. 
Hani won the ''Best Chef in Luxor Award'' from the Ministry of Tourism!

We wish to provide you with a fully holistic, nourishing, replenishing and transformative experience during our time together.
That includes healthy, fresh, light, wholesome and nourishing foods.

Therefore we choose to serve mostly vegan, and always vegetarian meals throughout the retreat that will support the inner work we are doing.

CAN I DRINK ALCOHOL OR USE DRUGS DURING THE RETREAT?

This is an alcohol and drug free immersion. This includes the use of plant based medicines outside of that which may be included in our programme such as Cacao & Blue Lotus. Those mentioned are optional for you and will not impact the potency of your experience during ceremonies as we will guide you ito connection with the spirit of the plants if preferred which will provide you with what you may need to receive from them. 
During the retreat we’d like to offer you an as much as valuable, transformative and impactful experience, and we believe that being sober and clear is of best support for that.

IS IT SAFE TO TRAVEL AS A WOMAN (ALONE) IN EGYPT?

First of all: Know that we do all that we can for your journey to be the smoothest, safest and most comfortable (and unforgettable) as possible!

From the moment you arrive in Luxor until the moment you will leave the villa at the end of the retreat, we arrange everything for you.
If you’d like to explore Luxor by yourself in your free time - we are here for you to give you information about where to go, how to get there etc.

Although the culture in Egypt may be very different from the culture(s) you are used to, our experience so far is that it is safe to travel in Egypt.

Bear in mind though, that it is a mostly Muslim culture, and it does help to be mindful and respectful towards the culture. Dressing discreetly will probably help you to feel more comfortable (no shorts or short skirts, no shirts or dresses with cleavage etc - long loose pants, long skirts or dresses work very well to be covered but not too hot).


Know that you may be addressed multiple times by people who want to sell you products. Know there is no need to feel intimidated, you are free to say ‘NO’ and walk on if you are not interested! See it as a good practice to stand in your strength!

IS IT OKAY TO COME ALONE?

Most definitely! Many of the people in the group may come alone or have attended retreats alone before. You will be surprised to see how quickly the group can feel like family when we dive deep in the work that we do, in the safe and sacred space that we create for you.
If there is anything coming up during the week that you want to share with someone, know that we are there for you.

DO I NEED ANY EXPERIENCE TO JOIN?

No experience is necessary as you will be fully supported and guided throughout the retreat.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A WOMEN ONLY RETREAT?

Something truly magical and mystical happens, when women come together in a safe, sacred sisterhood container, which is what we create for you.
We support each other to bring out our best, we share with each other, we feel each other and find recognition, we invite each other to step into our full power and potential.

When women come together,the field we create together supports us to step into our full potential and our strengths that we naturally carry as women.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MEN'S RETREAT?

There is a different dynamic and energy happening when only men or only women come together. Regardless that we are all connected, all one, and we can always learn from each other, 

there are specific benefits to gathering just with men or just with women. 


Sharing time with other, likeminded men, will offer you the opportunity to look at and work with topics and themes that are common for men in specific. It will give you and opportunity to find recognition and support, deepen the connection to what ''being a man'' means to you through the mirror of the other men joining you in this experience. 
It may bring you an opportunity to find true brotherhood with other men, to connect with each other from the heart, beyond comparison or competition. 

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

  • Clothes you feel and can move comfortably in, and that cover your body (mostly) for our visits to Sacred Sites and visiting Luxor

  • (For women's retreat) an outfit that you feel most beautiful in! An outfit that brings out your inner Goddess / Priestess

On average, Autumn and Spring are usually a beautiful seasons weather-wise. Not too hot, and not too cold in the evenings.

The average temperature in these times is 25-30 degrees Celsius during the day, and minimum 12 degrees celsius at night.

HOW MUCH MONEY DO I NEED TO BRING?

You won’t need much cash money besides what you’d like to spend on your free time, on snacks, souvenirs etc. Egypt is quite cheap compared to European prices.
You can exchange money for a fair rate at the airport.
If you need more cash money, there are cash machines all around Luxor.

IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD DO TO PREPARE?

The moment you say YES to this experience, you might notice things already start to move and shift within you and/or your life. Saying yes means you are energetically opening the gates to enter into this immersion and allows the movement of energy to start to happen already. You don’t need to do anything specific for this.

You can already start to feel into your intention, but don’t worry if it doesn’t come up yet. It will naturally as the time of the immersion comes closer or when the retreat starts.


You can start to journal insights that come through or questions you might have.

DO I NEED TO TAKE PART IN THE FULL PROGRAM?

The program has been set up carefully and intentionally to build up safety, trust and depth. The intention is to have all of us take part in all of the program.

 If at any point you really feel you need to skip something, of course this is possible.
We do ask you however, to come to us and discuss it with us first.
It is natural that towards some practices resistance may come up. Resistance however is always a big teacher and may come up to show you something important. Together we will look at what is underneath the resistance, and what is needed for your highest good in that moment.
