Product description

From the Author

Our book aims to be helpful for devotees of Egyptian deities
Jocelyn Almond writes: When I first began to worship ancient Egyptian deities, I was not sure how to do it. I did not know which rites to perform or what festivals to celebrate. I wanted to read a book that would help me, but I couldn't find one. I had a look at the Egyptian Book of the Dead and couldn't understand it. After many years of training in the Fellowship of Isis and elsewhere, and through private study and personal devotion to the Egyptian deities, I have become a priestess and teacher in the Fellowship of Isis. With my husband, I wrote this book to help other Pagans on the Egyptian path: those who are confused newcomers as I once was, and those who are already experienced and want genuine ancient Egyptian material to work with. The eight seasonal rites in this book are composed entirely of translations of ancient Egyptian texts by well-respected Egyptologists such as EA Wallis Budge and RO Faulkner. They may be performed by four people at home, or could be adapted for fewer. Although they have been tailored to fit the solstices, equinoxes and cross-quarter days observed by most modern Pagans, they relate directly to festivals celebrated by the ancient Egyptians, and are therefore authentic to the spirit of the ancient Egyptian religion. We have been fortunate that the Honourable Olivia Robertson, Arch-Priestess and co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis, has written the foreword to our book.

From the Back Cover

'An Egyptian Book of Shadows' presents eight seasonal rites for performance at the solstices, equinoxes and cross-quarter days by devotees of the ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. These rites are composed entirely of ancient Egyptian religious texts, some as many as 4,300 years old, translated by well-respected Egyptologists such as E A Wallis Budge and R O Faulkner and made accessible to a modern readership.

Providing a fascinating insight into the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian world, this workbook is equally suitable for newcomers to Egyptian mythology and spirituality as for more experienced followers. It includes:
• an introduction to and explanation of each rite
• rites that are ideal for Pagans who may not have a temple
• rites that may be performed at home
• a general overview of ancient Egyptian religious and magical beliefs
• a glossary of the deities' names and Egyptian terms
