Red Goddess Rising

A Spiritual Travel Memoir

by Halle Eavelyn

Book Image Not Available
Overview
She left for Egypt just another tourist on vacation, a disinterested atheist with an unacknowledged, paralyzing fear of death. Red Goddess Rising follows Halle Eavelyn's transformation from reluctant spiritual tourist, through the staggering revelation of the truth of her soul, to her new life guiding other travelers through the mysteries of ancient spirituality. "Under everything in Egypt runs a current of energy, powerful and implacable. It's as if the Nile is calling to you no matter where you are, singing to you from beneath the land. Egypt changes people. It changed me." Halle's experiences of Egypt are woven into fascinating vignettes of spiritual realization and growth. Humorous and timeless, Red Goddess Rising has already been called "enlightening," "moving," and "funny."
Description
Growing up without religion, Halle’s almost debilitating fear of death was the nasty secret in her otherwise comfortable (if unexamined) life. When her partner invited her on a tour of Egypt, Halle agreed without knowing what she was getting herself into. What followed was beyond her wildest expectations, triggering a deeper understanding of self she didn't even know could exist, and putting Halle on the path to lead her own spiritual journeys. Red Goddess Rising follows Halle's travels as a reluctant spiritual tourist, then as a tour leader who facilitates her guests’ awakenings in Egypt. Her experiences—visiting Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan on a Nile cruise—are woven into vignettes of spiritual realization and growth as the story unfolds. Her stories are often humorous, sometimes deeply moving: a friend so overcome with emotion he tries to climb the famous Colossus of Memnon; a private 5-star dinner on the grounds of Luxor Temple where the guests are treated like pharaohs of old; a temple guard in the Valley of the Kings who lost his arm—and nearly his life—shielding a total stranger from the vicious attack during the 1997 Temple of Hatshepsut massacre. From dealing with Egyptian toilet etiquette for Westerners to the lessons Halle learned on a camel ride up Mount Moses, Red Goddess Rising has already been called “enlightening,” “moving” and “funny.” As Halle began to truly face her own fear of death through candid self-reflection, “psychic surgery,” and encounters with unexpected teachers, she transformed her deepest terror in a powerful revelation that totally changed her life from that moment on. Come join Halle and greet the rising sun between the paws of the Sphinx, get initiated in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, and explore the hidden backstreets of Egypt normally off-limits to tourists. Red Goddess Rising is her story, but like the ancient call of the temple stones, it will resonate with you, too.
