We are very excited to announce our first collaboration with the Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism


January 22nd – February 1st, 2017

Earth to Aether:

The Alchemy of the 5 Elements as the Cosmic Dance of Life

Join our experts of the ancient indigenous traditions from India, Liesbeth Pankaja Bennink, from Egypt, Patricia Awyan and from Australia, Stella Wheildon, along with Geologist, Suzan Moore, and our Host, Nayantara Chakravarthii on a magical journey of self-discovery.

Our physical reality is manifested from spirit into the material from Purusha and Prakriti through several steps of devolution. Akasha or AETHER, Vayu or AIR, Tejas or FIRE, Apas or WATER, and finally Prithivi or EARTH, are the elements that combine to create our perception of Matter.

We will visit Five powerful temples dedicated to each one of the Five Elements that were constructed a Major Magnetic Ley Line in Southern India where we’ll be offered our own opportunity to transform from LEAD into GOLD – from PHYSICAL to ETHERIC states of being.

This will be a pilgrimage of birth and renewal that will take us through the physical expression,fully experiencing the sensation of each Element from Earth through to the Akasha, the Field of Aether, in the sacred city of Chidambaram.

We will walk the transformational path of the Alchemist, evolving through the stages of physical experience, finally merging and re-uniting with our Source at the Heart Chakra of the world.
