Description

In Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt, Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf renew humanity's connection to the ancient gods of Egypt, the neteru. Voices from these divine ancestors remind us of the healing power of the heart, and call us to bring their consciousness into the present to help us remember our true nature as divine humans with sacred purpose. The authors provide rituals, meditations, and rites of passage to help us meet our personal and planetary challenges with grace, wisdom, and love. The shamanic initiations provided are invoked, directly experienced, and transformed into embodied wisdom that awakens consciousness and illumines the intelligence of the heart. Scully and Star Wolf focus their rituals on 26 of the primary divine entities that preside over the ancient mysteries whose roots are in Old Kingdom and pre-historic Egypt. This fresh interpretation of ancient mysteries unites the energies of Thoth and Anubis to guide us through the current cycle of Earth changes and to help us remember who we really are at heart. Through these passages, Anubis lives up to his ancient title as the Opener of the Way, and Thoth as the Architect of Higher Learning. Together they evoke their power to unite heart and mind in the sacred marriage that brings transformation, renewal, and the awakening of consciousness.

SHAMANISM / SPIRITUALITY"Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt is a valuable contribution toward uniting Science and Spirit. Combining ancient wisdom with guided shamanic journeys, it offers readers an opportunity to experience personal evolution through merging the knowledge of the mind (the source of Science) with the awareness of the heart (the source of Spirit)." --Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., author of The Biology of Belief "This book is based upon a startling premise--that the deities of ancient Egypt embody and express the myriad aspects of Nature as archetypal forces that have 'overseen' the human experiment from the very beginnings of our long journey across eternity. This compelling book will change the lives of its readers. I couldn't put it down!" --Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., author of the Spiritwalker Trilogy and The Journey to the Sacred Garden In Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt, Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf renew humanity's connection to the ancient gods of Egypt, the neteru.

Review quote

" . . . no matter your skill set and experience, coming to this book and journey with a willing and committed heart should greatly assist you in reconnecting your bonds to the Divine Order." * New Witch magazine, #16, Winter 2008 * "Recommended for seekers who are ready to shed their old being, [and]awaken the love and healing power of their hearts in a new integrated way of being." * Jennifer Hoskins, New Dawn, Mar/Apr 2008 * "This brilliant integration of the Egyptian mysteries, Jungian individuation, and the Tarot causes the reader to be initiated by the neteru--all of the aspects of nature. Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt is a great book for those who are entirely new to these mysteries, and it is a deep pool of wisdom for those already familiar with them. This book unlocks the hidden keys of ancient wisdom for the modern world." * Barbara Hand Clow, author of The Mind Chronicles and The Mayan Code * "This is an amazing piece of work. . . . The entire shamanic journey is laid out in very clear and understandable terms." * D. Tigermoon, The Pagan Review, Sept 2007 * "These refreshingly direct methods of meditation and ritual reveal where true magic and mystery meet, in the sacred chamber of the heart of the soul. Like Isis providing the missing piece to Osiris, this book brings back the heart to the process of understanding and exploring the mysteries of Egypt." * de Traci Regula, author of The Mysteries of Isis * "Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf are part of a movement we might call taking the Gods seriously. This book shows us how the neteru can be both the genuine deities of the Ancient Egyptians and a powerful force in our own lives." * Rachel Pollack, author of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom * "More than any other book, Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt answers why so many people, now and throughout the ages, have been called to Egypt. These journeys reach into the depths of your being to empower your unique soul purpose. Discover how the awakened heart-mind consciousness transmitted through these initiatory experiences is essential for the healing of our planet." * Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot for Your Self * "Scully and Star Wolf know Egypt, and their book is a guide to the emotional, living experience of Egypt; what Egypt means and how to feel it. It's scholarship of the heart, rather than of the mind. Very interesting! Useful, too." * John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky * "Scully and Star Wolf have tapped into the mythic field of ancient Egypt, cradle of civilization. I wholeheartedly recommend using this book as a guide for a most profound shamanic voyage up the Nile. It is an amazing adventure you won't want to miss." * Justine Willis Toms and Michael Toms, cofounders of New Dimensions Broadcasting Network and coauthor * "Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt opens a new and magical window into the eternal world of pharaonic Egypt and its gods. Its special quality lies in the fact that it is written with an open heart and a searching soul, very much in the manner of an initiated scribe of this ancient land." * Robert G. Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery and The Egypt Code * "Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf have brilliantly mapped out the step by step initiations we all go through in life. Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt is very profound and I think will provide help to all during these changing times." * Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth * "This book is based upon a startling premise--that the deities of ancient Egypt embody and express the myriad aspects of Nature as archetypal forces that have `overseen' the human experiment from the very beginnings of our long journey across eternity. This compelling book will change the lives of its readers. I couldn't put it down!" * Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., author of the Spiritwalker Trilogy and The Journey to the Sacred Garden * "Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt is a valuable contribution toward uniting Science and Spirit.
