Several years ago I ventured out into the pagan community searching for fellow Kemetic practitioners or re-constructionists.
Luckily, I found a few scattered around the UK and further afield, though depressingly searching for a larger pool I thought there could be groups or organisations that might offer a better chance. Unfortunately apart from some short lived groups (perhaps failing because of the low Kemetic population) there doesn’t appear to be any that offer what I am after. Sure, there are some overseas ones that have UK extensions but they don’t appeal to me due to how they’ve approached Kemetic practice.
Of course there have been plenty of general pagan groups and while I’ve really enjoyed those opportunities, the practice of ancient Egyptian magic and it’s approach to deity does not quite align with how much of the pagan community do theirs. This has resulted in some disappointment which is a real shame.
All is not lost though. From those who appear to be in a similar situation I’ve been thinking about creating a corner for us local Kemetics to hang out. Now, I may have no success, it may fail like all of the other past groups. On the other hand it might work – we won’t know if we don’t try.
If any Kemetics out there – doesn’t matter if you are UK or not I suppose – are interested keep in touch and I will announce things once I’ve sorted out the basics.
Its been a while since I last did an actual blog post properly and I think its about time I did considering recent events.
Towards the end of October 2017 I was reaching an impasse on the writing for my next booklet on ritual magic, been going round in circles with way too much information to put over and for the crucial parts that were from my own quirky touches. In the end I decided to ditch a years worth of work in favour of skipping onwards for the following item; a full sized book on Kemeticism.
Its something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time following the release of ‘A Path Laid Bare’, but just couldn’t for some reason. However in the past few years my path has taken some interesting turns and opened up some new vistas which have necessitated a significant amount of review of what I know and do.
Then can a bewildering week of an intense stream of ideas for this new book that I have decided to withdraw as much as possible from any obligations or events that I would normally fill my time with, to focus on this new work.
A month in to this new regime and I’m happy about that, I’m just keeping my sessions at Pure Magik and the Healing Circle on Second Life going. All moot activity has stopped and so far I don’t think I’m missed – certainly not had anyone chasing me so that’s helpful. Its been quite refreshing to more-or-less cut social media activity too!
Writing is piling up with 100’s of pages so far and perhaps two book’s worth – maybe. Still early days of construction.
Looking forward to what the winter brings and the inspiration it contains.
