Lessons From EgyptAdele Green
I learn and discover more about myself each time I travel. When I decided to include my lessons from Egypt I thought long and hard about how this could be of value to you, other than just sharing my travel experience.

It took a while for me to get it and then after the Egypt trip I reflected about its true value for me – just how to live closely with my personal soul-aspect. Egypt opened the door to my commitment – not to a spiritual path, but my commitment to – my individual soul path.
