Our Sacred Pilgrimages to Egypt Include:
Normandi is an Arch-priestess of the Fellowship of Isis, a clairvoyant Spiritualist minister and an internationally known teacher. She is the author of 13 books, most notably the spiritual classic Awakening Osiris, based on the hieroglyphic text of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. For over 25 years Awakening Osiris has been a touchstone of the spiritual tourist through Egypt and was described as an essential text for the spiritual pilgrim. Her other works in the Egyptian mystical tradition include Dreams of Isis: A Woman's Spiritual Sojourn, Feasts of Light: Celebrations for the Seasons of Life based on the Egyptian Mysteries, Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt, Imagining the World Into Existence: A Manual of Ancient Egyptian Consciousness (with Gloria Taylor Brown) and her original Egyptian hymns collected in Words on Water. Her most recent book with Nicki Scully is The Union of Isis and Thoth: The Initiatory Practices of Ancient Egypt.
A sought after teacher of the mysteries, she also teaches creative writing, having received advanced degrees for her creative work and journalism. Her award-winning fiction includes Sorrowful Mysteries and other Stories, Voice Forms, Going West and Fresh Fleshed Sisters. She is the recipient of writing fellowships, including those from The Kentucky Foundation for Women and the Kentucky and Colorado Arts councils.
Normandi is a Spiritualist minister and certified medium missionary through the Indiana Association of Spiritualists. She teaches in the Metaphysical School at Camp Chesterfield (Indiana) and offers clairvoyant circles, private consultations on the phone or in person, and online classes.
Indigo (or in Egypt, Zahra) received her master's degree in Ecopsychology from Naropa University and is working on her Ed. D. in Organizational Change and Leadership at Meridian University. She is a member of the lineage of Thoth held by Nicki Scully, and is a Minister of Walking Prayer with the Center for Sacred Studies. As a priestess dedicated to serving Ma'at, goddess of cosmic order, justice, and harmony, she is committed to seeking and personifying Truth. Indigo is a student, practitioner, and teacher of the comprehensive healing art form, Alchemical Healing as well as Egyptian Alchemy. Additionally, she brings deep shamanic experience, herbal studies, reiki, past life regression, and more to her medicine bag. It is Indigo's intention to live life in service to the health of our planet and all who reside here, and in this she has discovered something quite profound and rewarding.
While in Egypt to lead tours, Indigo makes the time to give her time in service to the notion that handwork is essential for a healthy planet by providing tools such as scissor, crochet hooks, and rug looms, as well as training to use these tools though her non-profit, Zahra Handworks Foundation, a 501(c)(3). Zahra is dedicated to sharing the value of handwork, especially when creating from reclaimed and recycled materials. Indigo’s work with Zahra has already made a difference for those with whom she has shared in Egypt. Zahra not only helps to address the excess plastic waste in Egypt, it also provides economic self support and pride in the women whom she has taught the handwork skills required.
