Innu, the navel of the earth

"Just as our navels were initially connected to a source of physical nourishment via the umbilical cord, so the terrestrial omphalos connects us to an invisible source for spiritual sustenance. The pharaoh Akhenaten unnderstood this concept very well. As an adept of the Mysteries Schools, Akhenaten allowed himself to be a channel of maat, meaning truth, justice and the perfect order of the cosmos. Free from the misguided idolatry that had come to prevail at Thebes, he sought to do what previous enlightened rulers had done since the days of the primordial mound at Heliopolis: to bring the law and order of heaven to bear on human affairs, to facilitate enlightenment and bring the potential of paradise ever closer to the individual and communal body."

THE LEGACY OF EGYPT with Freddy Silva

Ancient temple cultures such as the Egyptians recognized the body as a vessel in which the soul is trapped from its divinity. Although the person lives and breathes, their spirit is anaesthetized, their view of the world is narrowed to what can only be touched. Such people were considered to be 'dead'.

But esoteric societies found an antidote. They built temples using a specific spiritual technology to help initiates disentangle themselves from the physical, reconnecting them with the intangible and enabling them to immerse themselves in a pool of energy that liberates the soul, becoming "as a bright star."

In this richly illustrated presentation, researcher and bestselling author Freddy Silva takes you on a concise journey into the inner workings of temple culture, what it means to be awake, and how much of these concepts are still around us.

Akhenaten, Egypt with Freddy Silva

Some people come to Egypt to see elegant buildings, ornate columns and towering pyramids. Others come for a deeper purpose: to experience their resonance.

You see, when the ancient temple-builders erected sacred monuments, they created much more than beautifully appointed stonework. The buildings are harmonic structures designed by master craftsmen to guide subtle forces into a defined space whose ultimate purpose is to induce a higher state of consciousness in the pilgrim.

Temples, then, are far and beyond masonry and mortar: they are alive, they are living, breathing entities, living mirrors of the pure forces that bind nature. As the ancient architects stated on the walls, temples are, first and foremost, places for self-realization, where a person can be “transformed into a god, into a bright star.” Find out more...
