The Magick and Symbolism of Ancient Egypt

description: 

For nearly 3000 years, Ancient Egypt stood at the pinnacle of civilization. Its monuments, temples, tombs, and artifacts provide extensive and tantalizing clues as to the power of its people. No other nation in history has risen, fallen, and risen again in the way Egypt did during its considerable reign. Its religion, culture, technology, and magick left a lasting impression on societies that are considered to be part of the foundations of western societies, Greece and Rome. And today, over 2400 years since the last native Egyptian Pharaoh ruled, we are still fascinated by the mysteries and secrets of that ancient nation.

In this workshop we will explore the history, mythology, symbolism, magick and religion of Ancient Egypt. We will look at its temples, its tombs, its writings and its artifacts to catch a glimpse of the beliefs and ideas of this elder people. We will seek a balanced viewpoint between ‘Egyptians had intergalactic travel’ of the New Age fringe and ‘if it isn’t carved in stone it isn’t possible’ of orthodox Egyptology. In all of our explorations we will be seeking an answer to the questions ‘how does this affect magickal and spiritual practices today?’ and ‘how can I use this in my personal work and exploration?’
