[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Dietary choices and the Gods

Sounds great, Senui-Iry-I! That's funny, I had thought that Hethert might approve. Makes sense that Sobek-Ra would like some meat, though.
Ra'awyserquet, that sounds tricky, I put garlic in everything! :P

Thank you! I've sent Nisut an email, hopefully I'll be made a remetj again. ☺

I agree that it's important to think about where all our food comes from, and try to buy responsibly. I'd be curious to hear from more people who have been asked by particular Names to abstain from certain foods. So some Aset kids choose not to eat pork, any other Names that might request particular foods or diets?

Em hotep! I'm another one in Germany, near Frankfurt. ☺ Nice to see that there are others here!

Thanks everyone! Nice to meet you/see you again! ☺ I might try and send Hemet an email, I did try a year or so ago but never got a reply, but I've heard there's been problems with email so maybe that's why.

Thanks for everyone's input! This is really interesting. :) And Riley.rifle, that is another issue I was going to bring up. My decision to give up animal products was based on ethical issues, and so I wonder whether factory farming is considered ma'at. Personally, I believe that although eating animals isn't intrinsically wrong, I can't see how the cruel way that they are factory farmed these days could ever be considered acceptable. But that's just my opinion, any other thoughts on this?

Hello, everyone!

It's been a few years since I've been here and in that time I've gone vegan. Just wondering what people's thoughts are about vegetarianism, veganism, or other dietary choices in connection with Netjer. Obviously I can't offer any animal products and I wonder how limiting that will be. In Ancient Kemet, I imagine most of the common people would have eaten a great deal of plant based food but from what I've read, offerings would often consist of animal products because they were more expensive and didn't last as long, therefore making them more of a luxury. But I suppose it also depends on who you're offering to; has anyone found that particular Names either like or dislike animal products? Has anyone replaced milk with soy milk, or anything like that? And in terms of Names with animal associations, such as Hethert, would you refrain from offering her anything from a cow?

I thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss, but please forgive me if it's been talked about before! I couldn't find much from searching. Any other vegetarians or vegans here?

Hi everyone! I doubt any of you will remember me, but I did the beginners course and became a remetj years ago. I wasn't ready to be divined or become a Shemsu, though, and I've not been on the forums much since as it's been a busy few years. I think I missed the reorganisation and am a guest again, so I might retake the beginners class. Anyway, I'm now living near Frankfurt in Germany and working as an archaeologist, so lots has changed! :) Looking forward to meeting you all!

Em Hotep, everyone!

I started a thread on the Q&A section about Easter celebrations, and Wenut was mentioned a few times. As I've not heard much about her, I looked through the forums to find more information, but I couldn't find anything. So I thought she deserved her own thread! Does anyone have any personal experiences with Wenut that they'd like to share?

It's nice to hear about everyone's celebrations! Quite a few people seem to be honouring Wenut, who I haven't heard much about before, and I couldn't find anything about her on the forums. Has anyone got any experienced with Wenut they'd like to share?

Oh yes, it was Wenut! I thought it was a nice idea to offer her chocolate easter bunnies. :P
And I agree, Arieni, any excuse for a party! And considering most of these Western holidays come from a mixture of completely different traditions, I always think that it's nice to celebrate them regardless of one's beliefs. :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Celebrating Easter?
« on: March 30, 2013, 07:54:36 am »
I was looking through the shrines thread the other day, and saw one which was dedicated to a hare goddess (I can't remember her name, unfortunately), in celebration of Easter. I was wondering how everyone else celebrates Easter, if you celebrate at all. Is there a Kemetic holiday that falls on a similar date, like Moomas? Do you honour a particular name that reminds you of Easter? I know there are members here that practice Wicca as well as Kemetic Orthodoxy, do you celebrate Ostara? Seeing as Easter is celebrated all over the world by people of many different religions, I'm curious to know how you all celebrate!

Em Hotep!

I've been absent from the boards for a couple of years, and returned recently to find that my status has changed from remetj to guest. I emailed Hemet about this a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had a reply yet. I don't know how long it usually takes her to reply, so I was just wondering if there's anyone else I should be talking to about this? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Em Hotep! It's nice to see another Amber. :P

If you don't mind me asking, how did you change your status back to remetj? I have the same problem and I'd love to become remetj again and see all the forums!
