An initiatic guide to temple construction on the spiritual and physical planes • Details the initiations for consecrating yourself as a divine vessel • Guides you in building a sacred inner temple for connecting with the gods of Egypt • Delivers shamanic journeys and initiations on ascension, shamanic death and renewal, soul retrieval and healing, multidimensional realities, and more Deep within each of us lives a primal memory of a time when the natural world was recognized as divine and our temples were built from sacred materials enlivened through magic. Temples were not places you visited once a week; they were centers of community, divine work, healing, and wisdom, places where Heaven and Earth meet. This union of Heaven and Earth--the sacred temple--is also a union of Thoth and Isis: the Egyptian god of wisdom and the creative cosmic force and the Egyptian goddess of civilizing knowledge. Their relationship established the celestial teachings on Earth, for Thoth taught Isis all the mysteries and magic she knows and Isis acted as Thoth’s instrument to deliver the teachings in a form humanity could use. In this initiatic guide to temple building on the spiritual and physical planes, Normandi Ellis and Nicki Scully explain how to create a communal spiritual structure for connecting with the ancient Egyptian pantheon as well as how to consecrate yourself and become a vessel suitable for divine wisdom and a home for your personal gods. The authors detail the construction, shamanic visioning, and ritual consecration of a Moon Temple dedicated to Thoth. They explore teachings that help you develop relationships with the Egyptian neteru and realize your place within the family of the Egyptian pantheon. They guide you as you create your inner heart temple, the adytum, a safe place in which to receive guidance and access your higher spiritual bodies and oracular gifts. They provide shamanic journeys and initiations on ascension, shamanic death and renewal, soul retrieval and healing, multidimensional realities, and more. By creating a sacred temple within and without, we each can take part in the union of Isis and Thoth and restore the magic of the Egyptian mysteries to our time.

This sophisticated book, which reads like a good story, gives a shamanic dimension to psychology and the best psychological analysis to the notion of shamanism....Before reading anything else on shamans or 'spirituality, ' read this book." -- Thomas Moore "In this masterful account, Daniel Noel illumines the rising tide of shamanism. Tracking the primal practices f the religious life through literary as well as anthropological sources, he manages to extricate the sham from the shamanic while extending our vision of what it is to live in a larger reality." -- Jean Houston "A startling, ground-breaking work that offers great hope for synthesizing the many religious traditions into one comprehensive vision of the nature of our lives." Vine Deloria, Jr., author, God is Red and Red Earth, White Lies "Noel...presents an innovative and startling path that will enable Western seekers to become sorcerers." -- Values & Visions "Noel provides a model for renewed shamanic seeking. Through dreams and imaginings can come the spirituality of imaginal healing, and the loss of imagination equates to the loss of the soul. He draws from two decades of work with shamanic imagining, relating in anecdotal fashion psychological assumptions of renewed shamanic healing."
