St Catherines Monastery, Petra and relaxing at The Red Sea.
We take six days where you move out from your familiar surrounds and get a chance to move away from your familiar programs. A time to discover more of yourself, the parts of you that may have been laying dormant because you couldn’t retreat from your life.
Why not take six days and go all in. Go into new surroundings challenge your beliefs, share your venerability, overcome your fears. Transforming yourself so you can transform the world.
Six days traveling together in parts of the world we may not be familiar with allows us the time to uncover ancient connections with our ancestors, open to a creativity that connects to our soul and explore other cultures.
Watch the sunrise from the sacred mountain where Moses is believed to have received the Ten Commandments a place rich in biblical history. After experiencing the spectacular sunrise we descend for a guided tour of St Catherine’s Monastery’s church and treasures.
After our visit to Saint Catherine’s our next stop is Petra.
Petra dating back to 300 B.C was once the capital city of of the Nabatean Kingdom. Because of its locatain surrounded by beautiful rock formations Petra remained undiscovered till the 1812. Up to present day it is an amazing archeological site. The Rose City is another name that Petra has been given as it is carved into red sandstone that takes on a rose hue depending on the position of the sun. It is now a UNISCO world heritage site. We will spend the day here to take in this city its Treasury Temple, Monastery, Tombs and much more.
You will have two days to unwind, relax and intergrate your experiences at our hotel on the Red Sea. You may feel called to journal, sketch, meditate, or share in our group circle.
