#17: Ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti with Dr. Joyce Tyldesley: Beauty, Fame, Power & a Death Shrouded in Mystery
Ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti with Dr. Joyce Tyldesley: Beauty, Fame, Power & a Death Shrouded in Mystery more places The last dynasty of Ancient Egypt may have died out over two thousand years ago, but the legacy and mystery of the circa three-thousand year period lives on in the hearts and imaginations of those enchanted by it, as well as in the fascinating pyramids, beguiling sphinx and immortalized bust of Queen Nefertiti. No one knows where she came from or when or how she died, but everyone knows her bust. The basic anatomy and physiology of human beings has changed little since Queen Nefertiti’s life. They say that history repeats itself, so if modern humans are physically similar to those in Ancient Egypt, it makes sense to investigate what we can learn from them. Queen Nefertiti lived from an estimated 1370-1335 BC. She was the wife of the Pharaoh Amenhotep IV during one of the wealthiest periods of Ancient Egypt in which they moved the capital from Thebes to Amarna. Although enemies of her husband tried to erase him from history, ironically, she instead became one of the most famous women to emerge from Ancient Egypt. Nefertiti’s bust is currently in the Neues Museum of Berlin. Talk about Eternal Beauty! Joyce Tyldesley is a British archeologist and Egyptologist, academic and the author of over 20 books about Ancient Egypt including the female Pharaohs Hapchepsut, Cleopatra and Nefertiti. Joyce teaches at the University of Manchester, specializing in Egyptian historiography and the role of women in Ancient Egypt. She teaches online degrees in Egyptology – so if you are listening, you can actually study under her! She is the author of the books, “Nefertiti: Egypt’s Sun Queen” and the more recent book “Nefertiti’s Face” which focusses on the Berlin bust of Nefertiti. We are talking to Joyce today, one of the world’s leading experts on Nefertiti, to un-earth and unbury information about Egypt’s elusive queen from the mouth of one of the world’s leading experts on her. Joyce studied archaeology of the Eastern Mediterranean at Liverpool University, before getting her doctorate in prehistoric archaeology at Oxford University focussing on handaxes used by Neanderthals. She holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Bolton and is a Research Associate of the Manchester Museum. Prior to joining the University of Manchester she taught prehistory and Egyptology at Liverpool University. You can read more about Joyce and contact her on her website http://joycetyldesley.co.uk.

#16: Dr. Kara Cooney on Ancient Egyptian Female Pharaoh Hatshepsut: Lessons From the Woman Who Was King in a Man's World
Dr. Kara Cooney on Ancient Egyptian Female Pharaoh Hatshepsut: Lessons From the Woman Who Was King in a Man’s World more places Last year I visited Hatshepsut’s Mortuary Temple, known as Deir el-Bahri, in Egypt, and was profoundly awed by the scale, beauty and symmetry of the structure. It made me wonder – who is the woman who had the power to create this monument around 3,500 years ago when kings were almost always men? I turned to the world’s leading expert on Hatshepsut to find out more about this extraordinary female Pharaoh. Dr. Kara Cooney is one of the most famous modern faces of Ancient Egypt. She is an Egyptologist, archeologist, author and professor of Egyptian Art and Architecture at UCLA. She has hosted TV shows on the Discovery Channel including Out of Egypt and Egypt’s Lost Queen and written top-selling books including the 2018 book When Women Ruled The World and the 2015 book, “The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut’s Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt,” which focuses on the subject of our podcast today – Queen Hatshepsut. Hapshetsut created the tallest obelisk in the world at the Temple of Karnak, which still stands in Rome! Hatshepsut lived from roughly 1507 – 1458 BC and ruled Egypt from an estimated 1478BC until her death. How and why did she come to power when typically only men ruled? How did she keep her power? What sacrifices does a woman who wants to rule have to make? What can we as women learn from her about our modern world? Kara has Irish-Italian heritage and grew up in Houston. She obtained a Bachelor in German from the University of Texas and then a PHD at John Hopkins University in Egyptology. She co-curated the exhibition Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2005. Her specialties include economies, craft production and coffin studies in ancient cultures. She has spent years at excavations sites in Egypt studying things in person. Kara currently lives in LA with her husband Remy. Some of the courses she teaches at UCLA include Women and Power in Ancient World and Art and Architecture of Ancient Egypt, Predynastic Period to New Kingdom – so if you happen to be a current or future UCLA student – you are in luck! She also has an upcoming 2020 National Geographic live tour of the US to discuss When Women Ruled The World.

The Honest Guys Siân Lloyd-Pennell: Creator Of Magical Guided Meditations For Healing, Peace & LOTR Fans Watched 300 Million Times + Special Appearances By Kev & Rick more places We all have the power and nature within us to be strong, beautiful and loving beings, but sometimes pain, trauma and chaos overwhelm us and prevent us from being our best selves. One of the magical things about our modern era, is the power for positive messages to be shared remotely around the world in the blink of an eye, and for those who would help us to truly step into our light and embrace our best qualities to find a way to do so. Today I have a guest who is very dear to my heart though I never once met her in person, because the messages that she has helped to create have deeply touched me, helped me through many painful and desolate moments, and inspired me daily to tap into my strength and core qualities while choosing to face and release negativity. In other words, the woman I will interview has magically impacted my life for the better and I want to share her message today so that she may perhaps touch the hearts of others in the same way. “Suffering can have a lot of different causes but the suffering is still the same.” The Honest Guys originally began as a youtube channel 10 years ago to review different self-improvement products and methods, and then slowly became what it is today – a channel with a huge variety of guided meditations and music to help listeners improve their lives with meditations that have been played around 300 million times. They have meditations meant to help you fall asleep fast, to calm anxiety, to face and reduce negativity, to start your morning with positive thoughts and energy, to reduce stress and relax, meditations involving white light, chakra meditations, and even fantasy guided meditations including themes with elves, wolves, unicorns and fairies. The Honest Guys is comprised of three people – Kevin, Rick and Siân, who is the sole woman in the trio and with whom I am speaking today, although Kev & Rick were in the room during the interview and do make cameos! “People must think that they’ve got me chained up in the attic, feeding me bread and water.” Siân writes the scripts for the meditations, and has been writing since she was 10 years old. She comes from a long-line of teachers interested in holistic medicine. She loves reading and especially Lord of the Rings, as perhaps evidenced by the THG’s meditations that delve into Lord of the Rings places including meditations that occur in the Hobbit Shire, Green Elven Wood, Rivendell and more. Today Siân is going to talk to us about what it means to her to create guided meditations, from where she draws inspiration, how her own physical and mental pain has made her want to help others, how much time and energy THG put into speaking to their listeners & why the law of attraction works.

She is going to talk to us about how everything is energy, our human experience as souls,the pain women store in their solar plexus and sacral chakras, guardian angels roles in our lives, why we actually have 12 chakras instead of 7, connecting to dragons in their realm and how meditation and healing can transmute energy just like magic before our eyes. Natasha has drastically improved my life experience as well as the experience of millions of others, and she did it virtually and without asking anything in return for it – she did it by putting something made from love into the universe. I am hoping to make others aware of who she is so that she can also have such a positive impact on them. She “came out of the spiritual closet” in the last couple years ago. Natasha was a naturally spiritual child who shut down her connection to spirit at a young age, only to slowly re-open herself to it after a physiotherapist recommend she see an energy healer for a physical ailment in 2004. She slowly began to embrace a new path, eventually leaving behind a corporate career to help and guide others along their spiritual paths. You can book a one-on-one session with her in one of the many different types of healing sessions she offers at natashatome.com.
