She left for Egypt just another tourist on vacation, a disinterested atheist with an unacknowledged, paralyzing fear of death.

Red Goddess Rising: A view of the Sphinx and Pyramid from within the Sphinx enclosure. Red Goddess Rising follows Halle Eavelyn’s transformation from reluctant spiritual tourist, through the staggering revelation of the truth of her soul, to her new life guiding other travelers though the mysteries of ancient spirituality.

Red Goddess Rising

Halle’s experiences of Egypt are woven into fascinating vignettes of spiritual realization and growth. Humorous and timeless, Red Goddess Rising has already been called “enlightening,” “moving” and “funny.”


Halle Eavelyn tucks the reader into her pocket with vivid candid descriptive snapshots of her years of travel to Egypt. She transports us–one breathtaking and detailed image at a time-to the sacred temples, life-giving Nile, and mysterious pyramids. But the real treasure of the book is not its fresh take on an ancient land; rather, there is a deeper vein of gold–witnessing her unexpected spiritual transformation.
