Book Per Ankh - House of Life by Margreet Merenit de Boer

The book 'Per Ankh-House of life,' written by the Dutch writer Margreet de Boer, has now been translated into English and released as an ebook.

In this book she describes her experiences of her travelings to Egypt in a wonderful and impressive story. She takes the reader back into ancient Egypt, the time of Achnaton.

You can order it at.

Margreet de Boer:

“After this journey I came across the Dutch music-therapist and healer Yvon/Aset Taken by ‘coincidence’. Together with Horus from Abydos, the adopted son of Omm Sety ( Dorothy Eady) she established the House of Life in Abydos.

The House of Life is a training and retreat centre for Ancient Egyptian Healing in Abydos. For years, Omm Sety taught the paranormally gifted Horus the Ancient Egyptian cleansing rituals and healing methods, until she died in 1981. He in turn transferred his knowledge to Aset.

Since 2008 Horus and Aset are working closely together to develop the House of Life. They are guiding and coaching together with a team of Egyptian staff members, the House of Life guests during their healing and retreat programs.

The town of Abydos is located 200 kilometres from Luxor. In ancient times it was a place of pilgrimage for the god Osiris, of which some claim that he was buried for some time in the mysterious Osirion, located behind the temple of Sety I. This area has telluric lines, making this place on earth a ‘star gate’.

Initially I did not go to Egypt to take part in the training. I wanted to go there to meditate in a small group in the ancient temples. During the meditation assignments I had the wonderful experience that my soul started to reconnect with this mystical country. In several places I was able to indicate what had happened there. After ten days of traveling I was convinced that I knew this country on a soul level.

When I asked Yvon if I could still participate in the training Ancient Egyptian Healing, she told me I could. Back then I did not realise what I was getting into exactly. I remember thinking that now I had a legitimate reason to return back to Abydos...”

Bread to share 

Newsletter July 2020

Two newsletters one month apart, that must be real news! That is also true!

The House of Life is open again. 

The first news is that the House of Life is fortunately open again. It has received the official health certificate from the Ministry of Tourism since this week. It indicates that the House of Life meets all new requirements and rules regarding the prevention of the spread of the corona virus set by the Ministry and which hotels must meet in order to reopen to receive guests.

The week of Abydos in the Netherlands was so succesful.

The second news is to tell you how successful and heartwarming The Week of Abydos 2020 has been in the Netherlands. Despite and perhaps thanks to the corona crisis, it turned out to be a wonderful week in which not only the education project with two children could be extended to now 32 children, but it also appeared from scratch it seemed, a completely new project.

Read our report here.

Those who really know the village of Abydos from the inside know that there are several families living there under hard circumstances that they deserve extra support. Every day we see on TV how the economic consequences of the corona pandemic are currently affecting countries worldwide. It is always the families who have already a had time who are first hit and who immediately experience the consequences. Similarly in Abydos. There is suffering in silence because there is shame. In silence they hope for help from the immediate environment in anonymity.

It is often the families consisting of sick parents, widows and their children who cannot rely on the income of a spouse. Poverty, health problems and the often long-term concerns of making ends meet are the breeding ground for depression, which often results in the feeling that they have become second-class citizens.

As Foundation House of Life, we have been intensively addressing this in the past two weeks. Structural solutions are not readily available. This requires long-term social assistance projects. What is possible is to offer immediate help to meet the basic necessities of life. We did that and it is almost magical how it all went.

This is the result.

“Bread to Share”

We are a little quiet. We are silent out of wonder, almost speechless, and we are silent out of a deep sense of gratitude. What recently came to be born as a project born almost like a flash of lightning out of nowhere but out of a deep urge that this had to be done, it seems to be a project that is entirely revered by you. Thanks to your donations and cooperation, the counter shows that the Foundation House of Life Abydos can already let participate 12 families in the “Bread to Share” project not until the end of this year, but until the end of June next year! Incredibly beautiful!

For those who don't know yet. The Bread to Share project is a project that ensures that very poor families from Abydos, mostly widows with their children and families with sick parents, are provided with the flour that can be used to bake the daily bread. A 50 kg bag of flour costs around $ 12 or € 11, - . This allows these families to bake their bread for two weeks.

What is going on now shows that we can carry each other worldwide. That we can build a better world together. Don't think, "Poverty and shortages will never happen to me!" It can happen to you and it can just happen to you! Life with her circumstances can strike mercilessly! If at those moments when you really don't know what to do, people are there who want to help you, then that is a blessing without shame because Sharing of the Bread will provide on a completely different level a creation power that is unparalleled! A creative force that comes from all of us!!

We are a little quiet. We are silent out of wonder, almost speechless and silent out of a deep sense of gratitude that we are all working together on “Bread to Share”.

The Foundation House of Life Abydos ensures that every grain of wheat that is harvested finds the right soil for a better life. Every € 11 ensures that an Egyptian family in Abydos has “Bread to Share” for over two weeks.

Thank you Foundation House of Life Abydos.

With this wonderful promotion we close this extra newsletter. The foundation continues to work tirelessly to be there for the poor inhabitants of Abydos. Please keep an eye on the website. In the coming period we will be working on our Foundation House of Life donation button to make donating even easier and we will publish an overview of the projects that we as a foundation would like to dedicate ourselves to and in which the families from Abydos can participate in.

Foundation House of Life charity work 

Corona crisis & Abydos Week June 2020 newsletter

The Week of Abydos in the Netherlands 2020,

We had almost already resigned that there would be no Week of Abydos in the Netherlands in 2020. The global corona crisis has been very intense in recent months. It has been months when many decisions had to be made. It has ensured that almost all plans have been updated for this year. Egypt has also been in a lockdown since March 19. For the House of Life it means that it is temporarily closed. The many canceled stays have financial consequences for the House of Life, but also for the beautiful development in which the House of Life was located. Everything has come to a standstill. It feels very sad.

The first hotels in the seaside resorts on the Red Sea and inland are being carefully reopened. We have the hope to reopen the House of Life in two weeks. It is still unclear when Egypt will again allow foreign tourists and when foreign governments will consider Egypt as safe enough to travel to.

Like everywhere else in the world, the corona crisis has had major economic consequences. It is often the poorest who are hit first and who experience the consequences first. This also affects the poor families in Abydos. More than ever, the help of the Foundation House of Life is desired to provide help where possible. We are happy and proud that we always succeed! That our donors remain loyal to us with a monthly, periodic and or annual contribution so that we ensure that we can help thirty families from Abydos where necessary and what is in our power. We are sincerely grateful to you as a donor for that!

In addition to the activities program that we offer during The Week of Abydos ( Dutch translation) in the Netherlands and in which everyone can participate, we offer our regular donors in the Netherlands a special and free donation pampering day on Saturday 20 June in the nature garden of Sjef and Yvon Taken Muldersweg 3 in Ruurlo.

This day will start at 11:00 with a welcome and coffee / tea and cake and we will update what the foundation has been able to do in the past year. At 1:30 PM. there will be an interesting lecture given by Wim Roskam about the Akaija. The Akaija is a jewel and a healing tool. It is also a harmonizer of energy fields. It is also related to an ancient design that encompasses the entire Earth and is anchored in power places and giant stones. Wim Roskam will tell you how he developed the Akaija and how you can use the jewelry.

We continue the day with making music.

The day will end at 6:00 PM with a meal and a drink by the fire.

If you are not a regular donor, but you would like to attend this day, you are also very welcome. With your free gift afterwards, we hope, together with all the other gifts, to help the poor families in Abydos. If you are already enthusiastic and want to sign up, send us a message. If you want to help us financially, every donation is welcome on the following bank account number:

Name: St. Foundation House of Life Abydos - Bank: Rabobank the Netherlands - IBAN: NL 94RABO 0111398886 - BIC: RABONL2U

Thank you very much….


In the Netherlands the Foundation House of Life Abydos has the ANBI Status.

We observe all agreements that the Dutch society have made regarding to the corona virus. For this reason, we cannot receive more than thirty visitors and a sign up is necessary. We hope to welcome you to one of the workshops and activities and to the pampering day.

Your hostesses during The Week of Abydos will be Annelies Bastian and Yvon Taken.
