Taking them from long distance isn't so much with the possible, but what is is bringing Hemet over to Europe, if we have the W'abu to facilitate the rite. I think we need two, which we do now have (GO HEHI) though he's in a [censored] of a place for getting to us all XD. This does mean we have the cost of bringing Hemet over, though. You don't have food costs and hotel costs and Retreat fees though, so it is cheaper, especially if more than one person is taking Weshem-Ib and is chipping in for her flight.


Jet: The RPD cost *can* be waived for hardship, but it's always nice if people consider saving up for it, or what hardship means, etc :) It's not denied to anyone who would have to sacrifice living costs for it!

Taia is correct: it's not possible to do the Weshem-Ib "long-distance" like we were able to do our Namings. It requires your physical presence. However, as Taia also noted, you could get a group of folks together to invite Hemet over and pay her expenses. She has also done the 'Ib at Pantheacon before (a US Pagan convention on the Pacific coast in California), so there is a precedent for off-site rituals. They just have to be off-site personally attended rituals.

As for earlier comments that this is a job, I agree. While it isn't a baleful occupation, there is a considerable burden in keeping one's oaths. This affects quite a bit of my daily decisions, I must admit. It is certainly not something entered into lightly.

Em Hotep,

it has always been my hope that Hemet (AUS) will come one day to Europe so that more European members can undergo Weshem'Ib. Of course money always is and was a main factor but the more Europeans members we have and who would be willing/able to contribute to cover the costs the more probably it will be

I bumped this last year, what a confidence cause I've been struggling with the thought about becoming Shemsu-ankh then Wa'abhood in the futrue. I even had the bravada to ask Djehuty and Wepwawet via oracle if this is the right path, they both said yes.

Last year I couldn't afford a trip to Tawy and I also wasn't very sure of myself or the community. I have to say spending more time in person and making the jump to speak more openly with my temple family has made me more trusting or self assured. I'm not sure I would go next year to retreat, I would have the funds, its all up to wheter I feel right about taking on more commitments. :)

Aww, it's not so bad if you remember to bring your graphing calculator for the math part of the test. ;)

Even if you are not planning on adding to your commitments, Retreat is an amazing experience.

In my own case, there wasn't ever much doubt about my taking that path, but it certainly isn't for everyone.  But there is so much going on at Retreat, the experiences can be very profound, moving, exciting & fun.

(And not even just those at the hotel or Tawy.  I am taking the memory of Raheri, myself & our lovely Finnish sister visiting the supermarket to my grave.  It still makes me giggle more than a year later and I expect it will should I reach 90.)

I have to truly trust the people I am committing too otherwise that just shows I'm not taking this seriously. I heard how Retreat can be very exciting however I could ever really afford one trip every few years so it might as well be special. ;)

I will second that going to Tawy is an amazing experience. I didn't go for Weshem-ib or for Wep Ronpet, but it was still an amazing thing to experience.
