[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / oldest images of Bast
« on: July 15, 2012, 04:03:08 pm »
Em Hotep, House Scholars!

Does anyone know what the oldest known image of Bast is, and where I can find it online?  Google is failing me in this search.

Thanks,

Tahai

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Nit Offerings?
« on: January 09, 2011, 03:52:39 pm »
Hotep, All.

Anyone have any suggestions for special offerings to Nit?  WepWiki is a bit lean on that topic.

Thanks much,

Tahai

[PUBLIC] Serving the World: Ma'at In Action / Bee-Keeping Webinar
« on: December 21, 2010, 12:06:20 pm »
Em hotep, Kemetic Community!

As many of you know, I am a Penn State Master Gardener, so interesting things come through my mail box from time to time.  Recently, I recieved a request by the Penn State Cooperative Extension to help promote their latest Webinar, a Beginning Bee-keeping course.  

I immediately thought of my Kemetic family, as I know many of you have an interest in sustainable practices.  The Webinar is entirely internet based, runs the course of one year, costs $150 (US), and is taught by a Penn State professor.

I decided to post in this forum, as I believe helping to re-establish and strengthen the bee population is of vital importance to the health of the entire living planet, so bee-keeping could be considered a vital act of service.

Following is the information I received.  Hope some of you decide to participate.  Please share the information in your other forums, as you never know who's always had a desire to learn bee-keeping!

Blessings and Merry Moomas!

Tahai

Beekeeping For Beginners – Virtual Webinar Series

Penn State Cooperative Extension is conducting a virtual Beginner Beekeeping Class starting in February 2011.  The webinar course is designed to create a foundation of beekeeping knowledge in order to confidently help beginners manage honeybees.  

Webinars are web-based seminars which delivers training through the Internet directly to your computer. You are able to view the presentation via your home/office computer and listen to the audio portion of the presentation through your computer’s speakers. These are interactive and will allow the participants to ask questions and communicate with the presenters.  If you can’t join the session or would like to review a certain topic, sessions will be recorded and available to participants until the end of the year

The Beekeeping for Beginners is a one year course that will include the following:
1.   A seven part live webinar series (all sessions will be recorded and available until December 31, 2011)
2.   Virtual Beekeeping Field Day
3.   Accessibility to instructors through:
o   Virtual office hours
o   Discussion forums
The registration fee for the one year Beekeeping for Beginners is for $150.  Registration and agenda information can be found at: http://clinton.extension.psu.edu/Hort/webinar/11Beekeeping.htm

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Heru-sa-Aset's falcon
« on: February 09, 2009, 08:32:03 pm »
Em hotep.

Does anyone know if there was a specific falcon associated with Heru-sa-Aset?  

I found a reference to the Saker Falcon as the "Spirit of Horus" but that was on an art piece, and the Saker falcon is not native to Egypt. It is the most sought after falcon to use for hunting in the Middle East, so might have been imported by the wealthy.

I also found a reference to the Sooty Falcon  (Link), which is native.  

I ask because I am setting up a small shrine for Him, and would like to include a picture of the most appropriate falcon.

Thanks for your help,

Catlin

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / problems divining parents ?
« on: November 04, 2008, 03:18:09 am »
Em hotep, all.

We have been discussing the roles of outside gods in our beginner’s forum.

That conversation led me to the following question:  Has anyone's parents ever been unable to be divined?  (Sorry for the awkward phrasing)

For example, a person searching for their spiritual home feels a strong connection to the House of Netjer, and decides to become a Shemsu, but their divine parent is not a Kemetic Name (therefore unable to be divined by a Kemetic priest):  it is instead Celtic, or Norse, or Martian, and the person just hasn't found them yet.

Any insight would be appreciated by experienced members of the House.

Sincerely,

Catlin
