At The Girl’s Guide to Swagger, I and guest columnists have given our advice through Swagger Up advice columns. Now I need your advice!
I have a chance to go on a trip of a life time to Egypt. Julie Loar, author of Goddesses for Everyday, is guiding this trip in March 2012. Julie’s website is www.QueenOfCups.com. The 12 day trip will begin in Cairo and include visits to the Pyramids, Spinx, the Egyptian Museum, as well as a cruise on the Nile. The trip will be focused on sacred history and the divine feminine.
I recently finished reading the wonderful new biography of Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff; book review at http://www.girlsguidetoswagger.com/?p=1316 . Cleopatra is a woman of swagger and there are so many legendary goddess stories that originated in Egypt. In her book Goddesses for Everyday, Julie describes Isis as “the great Egyptian goddess of magic .”I have always been fascinated by the archeology and the mystic nature of the country and it has long been on the top of my list of places to visit.
So what is the issue? Of course I should go! I think so, but the trip is not inexpensive andwhile there has been much positive change in Egypt in the last year – that change has come with civil unrest and some violence.
So – please give me your advice – should I go? How should I decide? Thank you! Cindy
