Join us on an unforgettable sound healing journey through Egypt and Israel,
to the ancient Pyramid of Giza and the Egyptian energetic mysterious temples,
and the sacred places of Israel in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, and the Galilee.

Explore the power of sound healing, meditations, and initiation with sounds for transformation at the most sacred and beautiful ancient spaces of high vibrations, transformative forces in the world.

David Gibson, sound healing researcher, explorer and teacher will lead us through a series of transformative experiences, including sound healing meditation, sacred sound, channeling, chanting, and healing work.

In this retreat, you will discover the power of sound healing and
ways to let the sounds open your heart and heal your body and mind.

During this transformational expedition, you will experience deep healing, guided sound meditations that will allow you to meet new and unexplored parts of yourself. Along with this a connection will be revealed to your authentic self and there you will enter confidence, strength, and wisdom that has always been there…waiting for you.

You will discover the breathtaking landscapes of Egypt and Israel, and visit the most sacred places, connect with some amazing like-minded people. Note that you do not have to have any experience with sounds, music, or singing.

We have created special itineraries designed to provide time for private and group ceremonies, personal exploration, and meditation in key sites. In addition, we will also do group sound rituals designed to activate ancient resonate chambers. 

You will be guided by David Gibson who will lead you in sound, mythology, meditation, history, science, and personal exploration, with the focus being on raising the consciousness and vibration of ourselves and the planet. There will also be an opportunity to participate in mini-workshops, with David’s guidance. 

The principals of Stay-Tuned Expeditions – Gil Tetro and Ya’acov Fried – are veterans in the music consciousness world and in planning educational journeys.  They will expose us to the latest cutting-edge programs and sessions in both Israel and Egypt, and will lead mini-sessions, and will facilitate for us opportunities for private programs at sacred sites in both countries.

Both journeys will include educational discussions providing background on the history of the sites and multiple sound mediations and activations in the sacred spaces. 

Last but not least, we will establish a sound and soul pod group to hold the space for everyone to receive the spiritual guidance and messages they need for their own Soul purpose fulfillment.  

 

INTENTION

The Great Pyramid at the Center of the Earth’s Sacred Grid

 

We are all aware of the tremendous power that sound healing has in
personal growth, confidence, creativity, motivation and in improving our well-being.

While visiting Israel and Egypt, our group intention is to
explore, educate and elevate the spirit and consciousness of everyone involved.

This journey is meant to help us expand and be of service to the earth and
the expansion of human consciousness.
 

This is an extraordinary opportunity to join with a select group of powerful and humble sound healers
in such an expedition of transformation at this special time.
 

This expedition puts out a call to those individuals whose soul and life contracts and resonate with the intent of reviving, remembering, and recovering this greater purpose of service to humanity and activating this knowledge into actualization.  

We believe that the journey in the holy sacred places in both countries, with its tremendous energetic healing powers,
will be a life changing experience for each one of us.

ISRAEL OVERVIEW

Israel is a unique country full of unforgettable and potentially life-changing experiences. This special journey is rooted in the spiritual traditions of three faiths that call this ancient land home. 

We’ll explore Israel over 8 days and 7 nights, on a comprehensive journey that reveals the complex history of the land,
its people, and its sacred sites. 

We’ll begin with a visit to the Old City of Jerusalem where we will have the opportunity to explore the city from
Moslem, Christian and Jewish perspectives.

The Western Wall (the Kotel in Hebrew) is the holiest site in Judaism. Located in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is a place that evokes deep reflection and emotion for Jews from all over the world.
We will also have unique sessions in Jerusalem’s Old and New cities. 

The whole meaning of the spiritual dimension of the city of Jerusalem is summarized in a nutshell in the words of the prophet Isaiah: “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem… the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed… The people who waked in darkness have seen a great light.” (Isaiah 40 :1 and 9 :1,2)

Following this we’ll spend a day in the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea Basin, the world’s lowest place. So, we were mightily impressed when the Dead Sea made the list of candidates for the new Seven Natural Wonder of the World. Nearby, we will visit and have energetic activations at one of the fascinating sacred areas, including activities at the Qumran Cave where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. 

During a 3-day journey to the Galilee we’ll visit holy Christian sites along with a variety of sessions and experiential programs in sacred sites. We will also visit Rujm El-Hiri, regarded as the “Stonehenge of the Levant”. ‘Rujm El-Hiri’ is a mysterious megalithic prehistoric site in the central Golan Heights, covering an area of 6 square miles. It is the biggest megalithic site in the near east, whose function is still being debated.

Finally, we’ll visit the cultural city of Tel Aviv; a modern vibrating city that offers great musical experiences. We will have an opportunity to explore the city along with sound healing workshops with leading Israeli teachers, and much more.
