OF LIGHT, Celebrations for the Seasons of Life
Based on the Egyptian Goddess Mysteries Normandi
Ellis ... Normandi Ellis brings her rich understanding of
Egypt's sacred past to the first book to recover from original sources
the history, myths, and pageantry of ancient festivals to Isis, Hathor,
and other Egyptian goddesses. Full of folk history, vivid recreations of
Egyptian goddess mysteries, and contemporary activities we all can use
to mark life's seasons and passages, Feasts of Light will delight lovers
of ancient Egypt and of the Goddess in her many guises.
"At once, Feasts of Light is an informed history of ancient Egypt and an engaging telling of its stories. With the same wonder that all of nature --- the bluebonnets, every elm tree leaf, a raindrop --- stirred in her as a child, Normandi Ellis unlocks the mysteries of the Egyptian calendar and its festivals and leading characters, and brings them fully to life. She brings forth the spiritual richness and lessons to be learned, and offers prescriptive suggestions to bring these rituals to life, in and for one's own life." ---- Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., author of Women Who Run With the Wolves
Normandi Ellis is the award-winning author of Dreams of Isis. Her profound translation of The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Awakening Osiris, is a modern classic.
