Summary

Summary

With its unsurpassed knowledge of the arts and sciences, its awe-inspiring pyramids, temples, and tombs, and its unique landscape, ancient Egypt continues to enthrall us today. Journey into this complex and beautiful civilization, and gain an understanding of the religion, mysticism, and magic that permeated every thread of Egyptian life--and then use this new-found spiritual knowledge to enhance your own well-being. As you find out about the people (from the farmers to the royal family), archetypal deities, myths, incantations and spells, symbolism, and even everyday details about childbirth and diet, you'll also learn practical exercises for accessing this rich inheritance. Become attuned to the culture by creating your own Egyptian art: copy the striking Winged Isis drawing--and then meditate on this cherished goddess. Make and consecrate a protective amulet, enact a ritual to bring good fortune, and salute the sun in a dawn ceremony. Astrology, hieroglyphics, divinations, and dreams: they're all here, outstandingly designed and illustrated.
