  • Exploring the inner secrets of the heart, the Secret Chamber of the Heart
  • Moving in the world with an open heart
  • Entering the world in loving relations
  • Accessing, receiving, exuding, and being in, the unconditional love of the Great Mother 
 The program will entail disciplines in High Egyptian Alchemy and Personal Transformation.
Isis brings forth deep awareness of the Open Heart, and how to move in the world with an Open Heart.  Her initiations and transmissions of crystalline life force into the innermost chambers of the heart, sheds one of the inhibitions to enter the world in loving integrity, enabling us to more fully embrace the Divine within each of us.
She and others of the Egyptian Pantheon teach that purification of the heart is one of the greatest and fastest routes to enlightenment.

  Isis is often accompanied or preceded by Magdalene.  Both have been a guiding force in many practices we have been engaging in recently, from the Easter services of the 7 Keys, and Meeting Our Divinity (2007), to the Seed Activations at Stonehenge and Avebury (also, 2007). 

Magdalene often calls us into deeper work, as a lineage holder of Isis.  Isis carries the wisdom and sanctity of our true heart, gifting us with her dearest blessings for our attainment.

Yeshua also calls us with Illuminations and Initiations into the ChristHeart, the seat, and seeding of, illumined consciousness of the principals of Universal Love held in the Christ Consciousness.

  See specific Notes for Preparations this program, as well as lunar and astrological significance for energies we are working with, at this time.

Magdalene has been most forthright in practices of upright living.

She and Isis have been sharing the practices for engaging in this Wakeful Consciousness which we have shared in our programs, articles, and newsletters, including the notes below.
The two merge in the softening and vitalizing of the heart with the intent of living within one's truth and power.
The practices are most beneficial for all who hear the Call.

A call within the practice will be to World Service, to bring to, and through our awareness, more explicit prayers for World Healing; to join together in the community gathered, to empower us more deeply, to authentically carry forward our prayers for the benefit of all humanity.  This will be in the form of World Puja, which is a practice of prayers for the world.

With the guidance of those gathered:  the great ascended ones, the Council of Ancient ones, the Hathors, the Archangels, and Melchizedek lineages, we shall add our torch of transformation to the global fires for transformation.

Those whom have not yet attended our programs, will find this a most profoundly moving experience.  Those whom know what to expect, may yet find, again, more than expected.

These programs are for those truly ready to enter and explore deep states of affinity, of connection, and commitment to their own authentic being.

Additional information may be added at a later time.
See specific Notes for Preparations this program, as well as lunar and astrological significance for energies we are working with, at this time.

We look forward to sharing in this program with you.

Many blessings to all.

Working principally with Egyptian High Alchemy, we shall explore the nature of our own Divinity, methodology to prepare room for heightened states of awareness, utilizing Sacred Sound Initiations to touch the Streams or Currents of Initiatory energies primarily of the Egyptian Pantheon (Hat'or, Sekhmet, Horus, Isis, among others), Journeys into, and Nesting, in the Celestial Worlds, The Lands of Ra, Immersions into the deep well of the Self, and utilizing exercises in the single-pointedness of Consciousness, and the planting of Seeds of Consciousness.    

See additional notes below for potent information regarding these times of Re-emerging,
and in articles section.
See our article on the Nature of Egyptian Alchemy, as well as the nature of Sacred Sound Transmissions, for general information on the nature of these programs.

     Info on the Awakening
     Horus: Awaiting Ra;  The Golden Body Oct  25-28

We are in the Times.
It is no longer time to sit back and think about 2012 or some other prophecied future.
It is Time.
The Times are Here.

Those whom are guiding us and offering insight are universally sharing, it is time to engage in the principals of being, as the energies of activation are engaging us planetarily.
The indigenous wisdom keepers are equally sharing this with us.

It is time.

Time to Be, fully present.
Make it a practice.
A living, breathing practice to be fully present.
Be Here, Now.

By practicing that we wish to see, that we wish to become, we shall make it so.

What do you imagine the shift will look like?
Imagine it Now.

If we are to be in a time of respect, reverence, love, appreciation, deep gratitude, joy, ecstasy, peaceful abiding, radiant being, be that now.
We can only achieve unto heightened states of awareness by enacting them now.

These are the seeds of Creation we are planting.
Whatever you are experiencing Now, is the seed you are planting for Tomorrow.

Find Joy, Reverence, Beauty, Wonder, Gratitude, every moment.
Those moments you do not find it, imagine it.  Do not judge your self for those moments you do not experience it.  Simply utilize your ability to Master the practice now, to be of One Mind (unified with your higher self.)

It is beneficial to understand what is happening at this time.  We are being asked to embody our highest potential.  Waves of universal energies are carrying this heightened potential into our consciousness, and activating it now.  If we are unable to accept, to be with, to integrate, these awarenesses, the energies immersing us, and emerging within us, have no home, no place to be present.  This may cause undue discomfort in our physical and emotional well being.  We are being asked to be kind, soft, understanding with ourself, to take time for the re-emerging and re-integration, to understand it simply is a matter of recalibrating our awareness to these heightened states of being.  It is a simple act of engaging in higher frequencies of consciousness, of more purified or rarified states of being.

Simple mindfulness practices can assist in this integration of heightened awareness.  Take time for yourself.  For renewal.  For re-birthing.  For integration of all you are experiencing.  For knowing and understanding these states more viscerally, and cognitively.  Breathe.  Touch.  Be with Your Self.

When you have time to experience it, imagine it:  what do you imagine the bliss and heightened states of universal consciousness should look like once the emergence, the awakening has occurred?  Every moment one is not experiencing this awakened state, the energies present, asking us to embrace them, are moving against the resistance, impacting the old, less than ecstactic states we have accustomed ourselves to.  We need compassion, acceptance, and forgiveness, to allow ourselves to move into these heightened states, to experience them, as they seek to emerge.  It is through experiencing them that we plant these seeds for renewed awakening for ourselves and others, to become fully in place over these next few years.

We have just emerged from group practices in England, utilizing ancient sacred sites, and the living Currents of Earth Energies present at them, and descending currents of universal consciousness, to assist in these planetary activations.  (Working with the Wisdom Keepers, guardians, and guided assistants of each site.)

We have engaged in practices to activate our own highest potential, as well as that of the planet.  These are highly potentized practices merging universal principals of Creation.
The Wisdom Keepers guiding these practices tell us this healing, this act of wholeness, of integration of the seeds of renewal, has occurred.  While this is happening universally, worldwide, in many ways and places not related to these specific practices, we have carried these seeds home with us.  And, while we embody them within our very being, it, also, is time to plant them universally, wherever we are.

This is a beneficial practice for all of us, who ever and wherever we are, to imagine we are planting seeds of Renewal, of Grace, of Beauty, of Wonder, of Wholeness, wherever we are, wherever we journey.  From deep within our own heart's content, from deep within our Being.  For, in the end, we alone can activate our own states of wholeness and well being.

Take time to embrace the Earth, and each other, in ways that are meaningful, in ways that are honoring of each other.  Imagine these are seeds of deep faith and being you are planting, with each action.  That will grow, emerge, and prosper into the coming times.

We are seeding our future.
We are seeding our Wholeness.
We are seeding the times of Awakening.

The time is now.
Blessings in these times.

We are setting the practices for
  • Horus:  Awaiting Ra:  The Awakening, the weekend of Oct 25-26 (Thurs-Fri).
The practice will be held at the exquisite Sumner Mansion in Hartland VT.

We will follow, that Sat and Sun, Oct 27-28, with
  • the Golden Body practice, high initiations in tantric practice. 
This will be a potentized 2 or 4 day practice, during a full moon.  You may sign up for either or both.
You MUST participate in one prior Egyptian Alchemical practice to be considered for acceptance into the Golden Body training.  (The Horus training is open to everyone, and serves for that prerequisite for the Golden Body.) 
We reserve the right to limit registration to that training for any reason.


These are special days to begin or continue our work in Sacred Alchemy, the Transformation of Consciousness.
It is time we come forward to touch and sustain our Greater Sanctity.  The Elders of all cultures are telling us the time is now, we have entered the Illumined Doorway, we must utilize our abilities to move into heightened & ecstatic states of awareness to fully bring the world into its own natural and evolutionary state.
See special information below.

In preparation for, later in 2007:
Zacciah will be offering high Tantric practices in
“THE GOLDEN BODY:  The Sacred Union”  
Attendance in one program in Egyptian Alchemy will be required, along with special consideration, to attend this Practice.  Those in Sacred Relationship, within their own being, and/or with other, are invited to attend.
There will also be a practice with "HORUS:  THE AWAKENING" .
