An Equinox Retreat in Egypt with Dana Micucci
September 21-October 1, 2023
  • You are invited to join me for ten days in eternal Egypt for a deep immersion in the Egyptian Mysteries.
  • Walk in the footsteps of ancient mystery-school adepts through sublime temples of light and transformation.
  • Resurrect to a new way of being at legendary initiatory centers like the Great Pyramid, the Temple of Isis, and Luxor Temple.
  • Discover the timeless healing wisdom of this sacred land and its god/goddess archetypes.

Dear Friends,

Heightened planetary energies are assisting us in embodying a whole new level of Divine creator consciousness.  

We are more easily able to manifest/magnetize in the outer world all the gains we have made inwardly during many years of intense clearing, purification, and recalibration, as we embody our true Divine essence and power now more than ever.  

We can benefit even more from such supportive earthly and celestial energies at sacred sites. These highly charged power nodes across the planet help to activate our light bodies, unlock our hidden potential, and greatly accelerate our soul’s ongoing expansion.

Of all the sacred sites I have visited, few compare to the immense beauty and magic of Egypt.

That is why I am excited at this time to be offering a sacred Equinox retreat in Egypt in September.

Highlights Include:

  • The Great Pyramid of Giza—Private time for our group only in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid—a multidimensional portal and one of the most powerful energetic vortexes on the planet—where great mystics such as Pythagoras, Jesus, and Mary Magdalene underwent death and resurrection initiations. This experience alone can be life-changing.
  • The Sphinx—Intergalactic waves of light are further activating mega portals like the Sphinx on the Giza plateau. Supported by this light, we will connect with the Hall of Records beneath the Sphinx, which stores the wisdom of the ages, to gain greater access to our gifts and soul mission.  
  • The Hathor Temple at Dendera—Private time for our group only in the Isis sanctuary at the exquisite Hathor temple. An aspect of Isis, Hathor is the goddess of joy, creativity, and sensuality. This temple offers a potent opportunity to reconnect with your divine feminine essence (men, too)! 

I hope you will join me for this spectacular, life-altering immersion in the Egyptian Mysteries of eternal Egypt!

With Love and Blessings,


On This Retreat, You Will:
Raise your light quotient, and accelerate your ascension process

Further activate your true power and purpose


Advance to new levels of self-mastery


Cultivate deeper levels of love, joy, and abundance


Receive and transmit light codes for personal and planetary healing


Realign with your immortal divine blueprint, gain greater access to your gifts and talents

"This was the most transformative trip of a lifetime for me, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!”

  • “I was amazed at Dana’s soul retrieval session. After her blessings and work, my body began to vibrate so strongly it felt as if I might come off the massage table. It was as if I was shivering intensely from the cold yet I wasn't cold. My body felt different after. A minor illness was gone when I woke the next day. The anxiety in my chest was gone. Dana discussed past experiences that gave perspective to some current issues I had been experiencing. I felt different, more confident in my connection to God. What an improvement she's made on my outlook on life. It's been a true blessing. Thank you, Dana, keep doing what you’re doing. It's making a difference.”
    ~ Lisa J., Pennsylvania

  • ​​“My soul retrieval with Dana was the most incredible experience in my life. She is so warm, welcoming, and real. What we talked about relieved so many issues for me. I was sobbing at one point, but I have never felt better in my life. Everything makes sense now. I highly recommend Dana, and I cannot wait to meet up with her again.”
    ~ Sharon McElwee, Lansdale, PA

  • ​​​“I came to Dana at a crossroads in my career and personal life. During the first Reconnective Healing session, I felt very peaceful. The following sessions and The Reconnection blew me away. It changed my thinking about how to attract what I want, which I learned can be done simply by changing my energy. I had three big manifestations after the healing sessions.  At one of the sessions, parts of my body even levitated! I felt like I was floating for days afterwards. My energy had truly shifted into a more positive state, which I had not experienced for a long time. I feel that I connected directly to the power of Source, and my vibration has been altered.”
    ~ VJ, New Mexico


"Dana leads her profound teachings with clarity and grace and a beautiful heart. The planning of the Egyptian trip was impeccable, and our guide Yasser was amazing.  The visits to the sacred sites were made more memorable and inspirational with Dana's meditations. This was the most transformative trip of a lifetime for me, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!”
~ Maureen R., Scotland
“Thank you, Dana, for orchestrating this amazing, impeccable experience for everyone. I believe we have all been changed in ways we may not have imagined and are still to understand and integrate. I was so impressed with how organized everything was, yet you were also flexible in regards to the needs of the group. You facilitated the bonding of the group, while keeping space for each person's personal journey. I feel so blessed to have participated in this experience and am so impressed with how everyone honored the path of others, so each could grow and receive whatever they were meant to gain in their own time and space. You provided such a wonderful mix of experiencing both the indigenous beauty of the people and land of Egypt and the spiritual power of the Egyptian energies for our personal/spiritual growth. I have seldom met someone who so honorably ‘walks your talk’ and truly lives the messages that you teach. You have a wonderful gift, and I would encourage anyone who is considering a spiritual journey to take advantage of what you offer.”
~ Joyce K., MI

“I have many amazing memories of our trip to Egypt. Many thanks, Dana, for your beautiful teachings and holding sacred space for all of us!! You create the most beautiful balance of spiritual wisdom, ritual, and travel experience out there. Your trips also have some time to regroup which many do not have. It is so important to integrate everything. I love traveling with you so much!”

~ Ann B., Chicago, IL

“I am deeply grateful for the incredible journey to Egypt. I had powerful experiences at the Great Pyramid and several of the sacred temples, and I know I’ll be integrating what I received for months and probably years to come. It was rich, full, and profoundly nuanced on so many levels. I am now closer than ever to discovering new aspects of my teaching and healing gifts that I can bring to the world. Thank you again, Dana, from my heart, for your sparkling, gracious, and wisdom-filled leadership. I could not have gone on this journey with anyone but you. You are truly gifted.”
~ Suzanne E., Wilmington, DE
"I have attended all Dana's retreats and loved them all, but Egypt was the most spectacular on many levels. The trip felt like magic from beginning to end, with Dana's beautiful and insightful teachings and our Egyptian guide’s knowledge. Our tours of the pyramids, tombs, and the beyond-beautiful temples were organized, private, relaxed, and deeply moving. I feel forever changed after visiting these sacred sites, where the powerful Divine energy is so accessible. Dana took care of every detail, and our group felt totally safe, cared for, and protected, making it easy for us to enjoy the sacred sites, the cities, and the culture. I was so touched by this visit I plan to return again with Dana and spend more time soaking up the most exquisite balance of divine male and female energy I have ever felt. Thank you, Dana, for your commitment to the work and to fulfilling a deep spiritual journey we will never forget.”
~ Cathy H., Los Angeles, CA 

“My heart is full of gratitude for the amazing and beautiful journey to Egypt that you created. Through all the teachings, healings, initiations, and blessings, so much was received. Your meticulous care in planning and orchestrating this bounty was extraordinary. The group was held so perfectly that it enabled the divine process to unfold purely. Thank you so much. It was wonderful to experience this special and sacred time together.” 

~ A.W., Connecticut
