The ancient Egyptians believed in the gods and goddesses of Egyptian mythology. Cleanliness was actually very important to the ancient Egyptians. They had cleansing rituals daily in the river or bathed at home in water basins filled with water from the river

The ancient Egyptians believed in the gods and goddesses of Egyptian mythology. Their religion was polytheistic, but towns and villages would often claim a particular god as the one they worshiped most. The religion was filled with rituals, rites and other special practices and ceremonies, and many temples were built in honor of specific gods and goddesses. They had cleansing rituals daily in the river or bathed at home in water basins filled with water from the river. They didn't use soap, though. Instead, they washed with a cleansing cream that was made from oil, lime and perfume.

Egyptian Paganism for Beginners. For this purpose, we composed eight seasonal rites, based on ancient Egyptian texts, and these we later put into a book.

Bring the sacred rites and rituals of ancient Egypt into your Pagan practice today. This beautifully written guide, by noted scholars Jocelyn Almond and Keith Seddon, presents a compelling overview of ancient Egyptian religious and magical beliefs. Egyptian Paganism for Beginners is unique in its focus on specific rituals for individual gods and goddesses. For solitary practitioners who want to perform daily devotions, it offers genuine invocations and prayers for each of the main Egyptian deities. There are translations of authentic religious texts, along with insightful commentary on relevant Egyptian history, myth, and lore. Also included in this comprehensive guidebook are practical instructions on how to cast a circle, make a shrine, consecrate statues, and channel oracles. The reader will learn how to safely evoke entities, invoke deities, and "assume the Godform"-a major tenet of ancient Egyptian religion.
  • If you want to understand the Egyptian Pantheon and how to use it in your pagan practices, this book is an excellent source. There is a full explanation of Egyptian gods and goddesses, a chronological time period to understand them in and different ways for you to be able to connect with this energy. I highly recommend it.

  • When I was exploring Paganism a fellow Pagan had suggested Egyptian paganism as a path and strongly suggested this book. I purchased and began to dive into the book trying to extract what imformation I could. As the title of the review suggests it is a good start. The author tries to explain key concepts in this ancient religion while giving a beginner the means to put this form of paganism into practical application. While there is a great deal of information which is appreciated by this rookie it written in a manner that questions whether Jocelyn Almond & Keith Seddon took the time to see how the overall work flows. After following a logical path they seem to go out of their way to jump around like one trying to find an artifact in the Egyptian desert. One has to stop in ones tracks (hope you don't lose your place) try in find the passage elsewhere in the book and then go back. Perhaps they were afraid that the reading would get too dry if they put the other chapters being referenced in front rather than post the early chapters. This erratic pace could have been avoided with the proper use of footnotes (there are none) or at least giving the reader page numbers as opposed to chapter numbers to minimize the chaos. The book also suffers from the lack of illustrations. The only drawings provided are of that of the dieties. The proper use of illustrations would be a big plus in understanding how to set up an alter for example or in performing various steps and rituals. The leaves the reader having to try to visualise how things are to be. However, compared to what is out there it is the only book that makes a serious balance between providing guidance and historical background. From other reviews of other similiar books provide even less information for one trying to explore Egyptian Paganism. Depsite its faults I would still recommend the purchase of this book for seeking the same knowledge I am.

  • The Egyptian Book of Shadows is more ritual oriented but still my favorite by Jocelyn Almond. I would recommend this book first to beginners looking for an Egyptian Pagan guide.

  • I new to Egyptian Paganism and I'm glad I got this book. It is good for someone like me who is not sure where to start. Well organized and easy to read.

  • My mother for whom i bought it for really loves this book so am happy with it

  • An excellent addition to my 15 year olds beginner library about egyptian paganism. She really is enjoying the book.

  • Amazing book. It has changed my life. I am in communion with the Gods and Goddesses. I have honestly never felt something so real.

  • This book is a good starting point in the Egyptian path of Paganism. It presents the basic gods and goddesses as well as information on worship and altar creation. I wouldn't, however, take it as the end all of the pagan path. Personally, I plan on using the references within this book as a starting point in continuing my study.

    It does use a lot of comparison with other religions. While the Judeo-Christian comparisons stand out because I was raised Catholic, there are also a lot of comparisons to Hindu ideas. I found this helpful in understanding the meaning behind what the author was trying to express.
