Arboretum Mysticum: 2023 Egyptian Initiations – Powers of the Sphinx
A 5-part working beginning December 2nd 2023 11am and culminating December 30th 2023
Location: In-person & Online via Zoom
1 year ago December, 40 students and faculty of 22 Teachings traveled through the magical land of Khemet on an Egyptian Initiation voyage. Along the way in ancient temples, before the altars of the Neteru, 5 initiatory activations were performed by each participant. Now on the 1 year anniversary, we will bring these initiations forward again, honor the ancient altar flames, and the names of Ausir and Aset, Sekhmet and Ptah, Aten-Ra, Habi, Dejuti and Ma’at, Heru and Hator.
These 5 initiations will activate the powers of the Sphinx, crucial qualities of the magician’s lineage: To Dare, To Will, To Know, To Keep Silent, and the 5th occult power, To Make Sacred.
They will be performed in the Elemental Order – Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Spirit, on each of the 5 Saturdays in December.
