Summer Solstice 2018

OK, I know we’ve moved on from the solstice, and I’ve been meaning to update the blog in a long time, but well, I’m quite frankly enjoying the disconnect from the community that kicked over at Samhain 2017.

I’m still around of course for those that feel they want to talk to me, I’m not cutting myself off completely, just not going out of my way to involve myself in community activities. To be honest I really am feeling so much better for it.

After my health scare at the end of last year I’ve made many changes to my life which continue, and will do so for the rest of my life. Right now, sitting in my back garden which I have been busy sorting out after neglecting for the past few years as I’ve always been dragged off to some other event or something, I am more at peace with myself now than I have been in many years. The wonderful hazel trees, the fruit, my grapes, the amazing smell of jasmine filling the garden. Utter bliss!

The happiness I feel I think is due to being less concerned and wrapped up in dealing with other people’s problems rather than my own. Don’t get me wrong, I love to help, but those of us who help too much can neglect our own welfare, which over a long time can be very detrimental. Now, I have less worries and my focus is on other things.

Talking of which, my main focus of course, and the most significant reason I have withdrawn from the community is to focus on my own Kemetic path. And I have certainly done that. The Kemetic Temple UK continues to slowly build, I’ve reconnected with a few friends I thought I had lost, and I’ve learnt so much more about my own path.

I continue to work on the next book, which after a few days away in Glastonbury a couple of weeks ago has finally resulted in the decision to write two books instead of a series. Those will be talked about as we go.

As well as that, exploration of my Kemetic continues and I love it! In fact I’ve even considered the possibility of undertaking courses in Egyptology. I start a short online course in September to see if I can get back into distance learning before committing to something a little more significant. πŸ™‚

Have a great summer and I will see some of you at Artemis Gathering for sure.

Launch Of New Kemetic Community

Further to my last blog entry, I’m now at a point where I think I can open the doors to a new Kemetic community focused primarily on the UK but hey, why not for everyone? πŸ™‚

Early days, and its never an easy thing to start something new, so things are a little bare at this point. This is where dragging anyone with an interest in will help.

https://kemetictemple.uk/

I don’t care if you are a full Kemetic re-constructionist or just interested in adding some ancient Egyptian deity to your existing practices – all are welcome.

Share and lets get this buzzing, I know there are plenty of Kemetics out there, we just don’t often come out of to play that often πŸ˜‰

Thanks and see you there!

Community Announcement

Hey all,

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.

Thanks

Kev

Winter 2017

Hi all,

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.
