Title: Em Hotep - A Pleasure To Meet You All!
Post by: Kheperdjesef on July 08, 2019, 10:33:44 pm
Hello everyone! My name is Kyle, and I am part of Beginner's Class 54. Since I'm new here, I thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself.

For the past 13 years, I have been a solitary Pagan practitioner, with a focus on the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt. I have found a lot of personal growth by working with the Netjeru over the course of my practice, but I have reached a point in my life where I feel the need to start looking outward. The solitary path is, well, solitary. It can be hard to find purpose and motivation when you feel like you entirely alone in your faith (even if statistically you know you are not). I am a Pagan in the process of finding his way Home, and from what I have seen thus far, I feel the House of Netjer has the kind of community that can help me on that journey.

My relationship with the Netjeru really began with a period of intense dedication to Bast. Something about her always beckoned to me, so it felt like a natural place to start. That introductory period (which happened during a challenging and formative time in my life) helped me to redefine much of how I viewed myself, and my beliefs.
Since then my "personal pantheon" has grown to include other Netjeru, particularly those connected to the divine family of Mennefer/Memphis.

I'm thrilled to be here, and I eagerly look forward to exploring the Kemetic faith together!

Welcome, and I hope you enjoy the Beginner's Class! I know what you mean about the solitary path being a bit lonely -- I started out as a solitary practitioner as well, and I've found it very rewarding to be a part of this community. :)

Em hotep and welcome.
My story is similar, solitary pagan for many years before coming here. I hope you find what you are seeking.

Nice to meet you Kyle! Similar to you, I started as a devotee of Bast before becoming something of a Memphite cultist. I hope you have wonderful experiences here!

Em hotep and welcome!

Something has always drawn me to Bast too, even if before I could never have guessed why, but time and time again there was always some kind of connection.

Now, after my RPD, it makes sense!

I hope you enjoy the beginners class!

Em hotep, welcome! I hope you enjoy the class!

I’d originally thought I’d stay solo and just learn about KO for a secondary perspective - here I still am though! Quite happily ^^
