Halle went to Egypt a disinterested atheist with a paralyzing fear of death, just another tourist on vacation. But somewhere in the middle of exploring the fascinating mix of developing country and ancient monuments, she found the unexpected revelation of her soul. Travel up the Nile with Halle as she recounts timeless, riveting stories of both ancient and modern Egypt, of her own awakening, and the changes in the lives of the people she now guides.

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 "spiritual" 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 journey 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.
