Hello! I'm way excited to start my journey as well! I adore Bast and feel I serve her best by running a small but significant community cat rescue. I also used to own/run my state's only ferret rescue so that's my connection to Ra (I was told years ago by someone knowledgeable that is who would watch over my ferrets). I feel called by Sekhmet but due to life's setbacks I feel both stuck and stagnant. I pray that this new chapter in my life will help. So nice to meet you. 😊

Many blessings, B.

"Baubo may also be related to a little-known Egyptian goddess named Bebt. The ancient historian Herodotus (c. 484 – c. 425 BC), described rites for the Egyptian cat goddess Bast at her main temple at Bubastis. During these ceremonies, men and women rode a barge down the river, yelling “mocking jokes and jests” at women on the riverbanks. Women on the barge performed dances, “then, standing up, they hitch up their skirts.” (According to Herodotus, more wine was drunk during this festival than at any other time of the year.)

The image of a vulva-flashing goddess was so popular in Egypt that artwork of her in one or another of her guises, but always unashamedly displaying her bits, appears to have been mass produced. In the late 19th century, antiquities hunters in the markets of Cairo or Alexandria in Egypt could buy bronze or terracotta figurines of this sort that had been dug up in farmers’ fields, writes Lubell. These showed women in flowing gowns and headdresses, lifting their skirts above their naked pudenda. Is it possible these figures were actually of the much older Egyptian goddess Isis? Again, scholars disagree."

Em Hotep!

I am on a research about sacred feminine and the goddess Baubo, and one of the websites I am reading says this Goddess can be related to an Egyptian Goddess called BEBT... I have never heard about this Goddess, or even if She exists... Is She a kind of proto-Bast?

I hope you can help me,

Thank you...

Senebty,

Em hotep all! I'm sure the next class will be starting very soon! Wanting to make a thread of those of who are in the next one or previous ones to talk to each other! I'm so looking forward to this and want to meet others who have and are going to be participating! Getting to know the peers and whatnot!

I am Karissa! I'm 27 years old and I am deeply into art! I have been on the Kemet path for just under a year but I have been a lifelong lover of Ancient Egypt since I was a little girl. I know my inner child is simply giddy with excitement to learn so much more and to be apart of the religion I thought was gone. I have always felt a pull even though Yu-Gi-Oh! was my introduction to Egyptian things... though that only jumpstarted my love for it. In my childhood I would always make sure to read every single Ancient Egyptian book on the shelves and even then... with what we know now it still makes me so happy to know of more Netjer! I was never aware of some as they were never mentioned in early books in my childhood.

I guess it has been a childhood dream to be closer to this and now that I am it is so much more than I have dreamed. I will visit Egypt someday but, for now... to be with likeminded passionate people and to be apart of those who truly understand really makes me happy. I get emotional writing this honestly haha! I already have felt close to each of these gods in ways I can't explain as well as the culture. I look forward to this class and to a lifetime of knowledge!

Who are the Netjer you are looking forward to getting to know better or cultivating more with?

For myths, I'd recommend Geraldine Pinch's work Egyptian Mythology: A Guide to the Gods, Goddesses, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt
