Hello!
« on: June 20, 2021, 08:23:03 pm »
Hello! My name is Alex, and a friend of mine got me interested enough to poke my nose in. I'm a vague polytheist (ie, willing to look into just about anything, but not strictly going down any one path) who used to participate in ADF/druidry several years back.

I've always been drawn to Kemetic traditions and faith, even as a sort of 'ooh, shiny' when I was a kid. I haven't registered for the upcoming class, but I'm definitely intrigued (just, as noted above, indecisive and unsure of really where to start).

Anyway, hello!

Em hotep and welcome!

My interest in all this started when I was a kid as well, and was definitely of the "Oooh, shiny!" variety. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I hope you find what you seek here, and I look forward to chatting and such with you in the future!

It's good to meet everyone else as well!

Is there anywhere folx recommend I start poking around, other than signing up for the class? Even just a nudge one way or another would be helpful (otherwise, I get overwhelmed and can't get going).

Glad to see everyone seems so friendly!

One source I found very helpful was the Kemetic Roundtable. Several of the links on it are dead but the ones that are still live have some very good information.

Hi Alex:

Other than in these forums, I'd also suggest Edward Butler's site Henadology:

https://henadology.wordpress.com/theology/netjeru/

If nothing else, one gets a much better idea of just how many Netjeru there are! (and his list still doesn't cover everyone!)
