Description - Circle of Isis by Ellen Cannon Reed
Although the pantheons of Europe and the British Isles sing to many of the hearts of modern Pagans, others find that the song that draws them is that of ancient, and often mysterious, deities of Egypt. It is for those that Circle of Iris was created. With very few exceptions, most information on these Gods and Goddesses is presented by those whom they are "other peoples gods" and therefore simply relate myths, and facts. Circle of Iris goes beyond a simple presentation of facts. Based on over 25 years of work with these deities, Circle of Iris begins by showing how Reed has come to know them, and how these Gods and Goddesses have enriched their lives. Included are mediations and techniques to help readers bring those deities into their own lives. Readers are given other tools to give depth to their practice, including songs for the deities, rituals, information of hieroglyphs, two new forms of divinations, names, incenses, oils, information and recipes for an ancient Egyptian feast, and even the best sites on the World Wide Web. Also included are instructions on the creation of a wand, nemyss, kilt, and sistrum.
Written by a Wiccan High Priestess, this book does not pretend to recreate the religion of Ancient Egypt, but rather to bring knowledge and worship of its deities into modern Pagan practice. With this book, readers will have the tools to continue learning and developing their own methods of honouring the Gods and Goddesses of Tamera, the Beloved Land of the ancient Egyptians.
