Returning To Our Roots

A journey to Gobeklitepe, the oldest permanent human settlement in the world, with Astrology, yoga, and meditation.

OVERVIEW

An Astrological Journey to the Origins of Civilization with Kaypacha & Murad

This “once in a lifetime” journey will be unlike any other event you have ever experienced. It is a journey to Gobeklitepe, the oldest permanent human settlement anywhere in the world, dating back to 9500-8000 BC, with astrology, yoga, and meditation both at the sites and in our private circle. We will have a unique cultural experience of Turkey (including the food!), an enlightened historical understanding gained from our private historian and guide Murad (the best), and an inner experience of ourselves, our past lives, and our future soul intentions for this lifetime with Kaypacha. 

You will return from this “initiation” into the mysteries of time and Spirit a reborn, deepened, clear, and empowered soul.

You will return from this “initiation” into the mysteries of time and Spirit a reborn, deepened, clear, and empowered soul.

If you are familiar with Kaypacha’s weekly Youtube Pele Report, you will remember that he often quotes the Sabian symbol for specific, powerful, astrological aspects.

The original Sabians have been called the “star worshippers of Harran,” as they were shamanic alchemists who lived, worshipped, and built the ancient sites we will explore.

Between visits to these powerful sacred sites, we will gather to explore the unique Sabian symbols of your natal chart. These will deepen your understanding of yourself and your unconscious spiritual soul intentions for this life.

In 1925, Marc Edmund Jones sat with a most powerful psychic, Elsie Wheeler, and felt what he described as an “ancient mind matrix,” which gave Elsie Wheeler an image for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac. “Marc said there was a presence and cooperation ‘on the invisible side of life’ of one of the Brothers of the ancient Sabian occult sect.” Having shuffled a blank set of cards such that Elsie would hold random degrees up to her forehead one at a time, once finished, both Marc Edmund Jones and later Dane Rudhyar arranged them in order and gave interpretations as to their significance within the cyclic phases of the 360° cycle.

THE JOURNEY

We will begin our journey with the security and comfort of the professional tour company Baska Rota, our private guide Murad, and Gonca Kalabalik, a native Turkish graduate of the New Paradigm School of Astrology who is familiar with Gobeklitepe. We will tour 15 ancient sites and 2 museums, tuning into the Sabians and witnessing the “oldest known megaliths,” small buildings, quarries, and stone-cut cisterns.

While visiting many sites, we will mainly focus on Gobekli Tepe and Karahan Tepe. These sites are featured in the Ancient Apocalypse Netflix series by Graham Hancock and are of immense historical/spiritual significance (particularly episode 5.)

We will then take a boat ride to see Halfeti, an ancient submerged, magical town, before heading up to the top of mount Nemrut (the highest mountain in Turkey) just in time to witness the Lunar Eclipse! Be sure to read the schedule below for all the details of what we will be experiencing.


? Your registration includes a PDF print of Dane Rudhyar’s “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and Its 360 Symbolic Phases.” In addition, especially for those new to astrology, you will receive Kaypacha’s “Astrology 101,” a 16-hour video series where he explains the meaning of the astrological signs, planets, houses, and aspects. If you are not astrologically knowledgeable, we ask that you listen to these videos before the event so we can all go deeper together.

If you have ever wanted to experience, feel, and truly tap into your soul history and the matriarchal roots from which we have emerged with a group of like-minded souls, this is the experience you have been waiting for!

Day 6 – May 4, 2023
GÖBEKLI TEPE

After breakfast, we leave the hotel and the day’s first visit is to Göbekli Tepe, the zero point of time. Gobeklitepe is a significant World Heritage historical site that has seen the beginning of civilization at least two times and changed history as we know it. The temples date back to 9600 BC. Neolithic shamans probably performed rituals in these mysterious temples near the end of matriarchal times. 

For more background on Karahan Tepe and Gobeklitepe, we suggest you watch the Ancient Apocalypse series by Graham Hancock on Netflix episodes 5 and 7 specifically!

The astronomical meaning of the carved symbols have cosmic and celestial connotations. It’s possible that these temples were built as observatories to observe celestial objects like planets and constellations. We can undoubtedly say they were used to hold equinox rituals as far back as the Age of Leo! Now, we have the chance to experience them six zodiacal ages later. Standing in this new Age of Aquarius, we can look into the eye of Leo and feel how the stars have guided us through time.

It is magnificent to witness where humans started observing the sky and carved symbols into stone before “civilization” when they were hunter-gatherers. They built temples to get to the sky! Our journey is to the heart of time, where we will feel the earth beneath our feet and awaken our hearts to ancient knowledge. We intend to not only know the sky and planets but to feel how they have always guided us and always will.

We will let them whisper their knowledge straight into our hearts, see where astrology was born, and do rituals to feel our way into the wisdom of the stars. Then, like Mark Edmond Jones, who channeled the Sabians themselves, we will follow in their footsteps to reach our deepest self, stardust, as Carl Sagan once said.

Afterward, we will return to the center of Şanlıurfa and visit the Schmidt House. Archaeologist Çiğdem Köksal- Schmidt is Klaus Schmidt’s wife (who discovered the site and was the former manager of Göbeklitepe excavations.) Though Klaus Schmidt has passed away, Çiğdem still lives in Urfa. After visiting the Schmidt House, we will visit the Urfa Archeology Museum. 

We will have dinner at a restaurant in town, and after dinner, Kaypacha will discuss the Sabians, the Sabian Symbols, and how to use them.

? Accommodation at Şanlıurfa Teserra Butik Hotel


Day 7 – May 5, 2023
HALFETİ – KAHTA – NEMRUD SUNSET – ADIYAMAN

After breakfast, we will visit Halfeti and take a fantastic boat tour on the Tigris river, including lunch. We will then proceed to Adıyaman. 

After dinner at the hotel, we will climb Mount Nemrud, the site of the original Tower of Babel and the Mountain of God in biblical tradition.

We will gaze out over the terrestrial Paradise that the pre-Roman king of Commagene enjoyed to observe Wesak Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! In addition, we will try to see the world’s first horoscope, carved in stone, which is kept under lock and key near the top of the mountain.

? Accommodation at Adıyaman Park Dedeman.
