Egyptian Resources...

This list is provided as an informational resource. Though some truly fine organizations and resources are listed here, not all that are listed are well known to the Hermetic Fellowship. Therefore, the appearance of a group or other resource in this listing does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement by the Hermetic Fellowship. In becoming involved with any group or teacher, the seeker should always exercise his or her reason and intuition. Caveat Quæstor.

I am a solitary Priest of the Netjeru using the ways of Modern Paganism as my path. My name is Asumut. My soul dates back to the 2nd Egyptian dynasty....what a beautiful time that was, but it will never be the Egypt as I knew then.

Bullet Egyptian Creation Epic
“Harmonized from various versions of the Mythos by Aaron Leitch.
When speaking of ancient Khemet (Egypt), it is necessary to remember that we are not speaking of a singular village in a singular time. In fact, we are speaking of two great nations that spanned thousands of years. In this time, there were several dynasties of rulers (not all of them Egyptian) and literally hundreds of varying religions. Each temple had its own patron deity, whose worshippers often regarded as the Supreme God and Creator. The sun-god Re is merely one example, as is Osiris. This is what often makes a study of Egyptian mythology complicated or even utterly confusing. What follows, then, is my own "harmonized" version of the Egyptian creation mythos. It incorporates most of the more popular aspects from various tellings of the story, and I have therefore named it an "epic." Enjoy!”
