I continue to be amazed over the popularity of the mysteries from ancient Egypt among spiritual people. Freemasons, some Rosicrucians, the Golden Dawn, other ceremonial magicians, and various Pagans and Wiccan traditions all look to Egypt for their sources.
Perhaps it's because Egypt remains mysterious. People made all sorts of guesses about Egypt before the Rosetta Stone was discovered and their language understood. Perhaps it is because many of the hieroglyphic translations are still debatable.
Over the decades, some ideas about Ancient Egypt have been put forth that are interesting in themselves, but have no legitimate relation to the Egypt of thousands of years ago. That's why I'm so glad we had the opportunity to publish Rosemary Clark's The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt.
You see, Clark is a real Egyptologist. She was exhibit leader for the Tutankhamun tour of 1977 in Chicago. She is also the founder of a temple where people can experience the ancient practices of Egypt.
But most important is the incredible amount of information in this book. Here you will discover the history and life of ancient Egypt from one who practices it. You will learn their philosophy and theology. You will learn how they looked at astrology, clairvoyance, reincarnation, Hermetic ideas, prophecy, healing, the meaning of the ancient hieroglyphic texts, and much more. In fact, you won't just learn about these things, you'll learn how to incorporate them into your life.
While the author is a scholar of Egyptology, I feel it is more important to mention that she is a practitioner of the Sacred Tradition. She is able to show you both the history and the practical aspects of what was being practiced thousands of years ago. Whether you are interested in Egypt from a historical, philosophical, or active point of view, this book will show you the wisdom of the past you can use in the present and future to make your life better than ever before.

Pagan religion is visual. We don't just hear our gods, we see them! The practice of theurgy teaches us how to see the gods in three forms: their representation in art, in the faces of other people, and in the temple of our own bodies. I've engaged in each of these practices and they all are flourishing today. Bodies of Stone I get excited in... read this article
