The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt — 4/23/2015
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
The ancient Egyptians were extremely spiritual, and at the core of their highly-developed and successful society were their Gods and Goddesses. They’ll also be at the core of our class, where we’ll explore the deities and their specific roles, before discussing the concepts of monotheism and polytheism. It was said that each deity ruled a specific energy in a person’s life and we’ll discover how the ancient Priests and Priestesses governed the lives of the Egyptians at a time when pleasing and obeying the Gods was thought to ensure health, wealth and prosperity. So strongly-held was this belief that even the Pharaohs strived to elevate themselves to that of a God in life and in death. This led to the ancient Priests developing a sophisticated system of categorizing the Gods known as the Tree of Life or Paut Neteru. You will walk away from this class with an understanding of Egypt’s most prominent Gods Maat, Tehuti, Heru, Auset and Asuar, and the knowledge of how you can tune into their power to help you achieve the success in your life that the Ancient Egyptians spent their lives striving for.
