Review

"The...[illustrations], the translated invocations, and, above all, the how-to approach to making connections with transcended beings make this book a metaphysical marvel." -- Dell Horoscope magazine "Dell Horoscope magazine"

About the Author

Rosemary Clark is a writer and lecturer on the esoteric tradition of ancient Egypt and its religious, philosophical, and metaphysical legacy in modern times. Her continuing study in this field derives from a thirty-year background in historical research, travel throughout the Middle East, and the development of a repertoire of unique skills in recreating Egyptian ceremony and rituals. She has been a featured speaker on several tours of Egypt, and has acted as coordinator for on-site devotional temple activities. Ms. Clark served as exhibit leader for the Tutankhamun tour when it came to Chicago in 1977, and illustrated The Traveler’s Key to Ancient Egypt (New York: Knopf, 1985). She has appeared on NBC television in a feature broadcast on her work as founder of Temple Harakhte, a group of men and women devoted to the experiential religious practices of Egypt’s Old Kingdom. Above and beyond offering a thorough knowledge of Egyptian history and mythology, Clark is well versed in the hieroglyphic script, its transliteration and the translation of ancient texts, and in the nuances of Hermetic philosophy and Sacred Science.

Format: Paperback
This interesting work serves as a superb reference on various aspects of the Egyptian mysteries, presents beautiful rituals based on ancient Egyptian texts and provides a repertoire of ancient hymns, litanies, spells and ceremonies in the ancient language.

Chapter One deals with the legacy of ancient Egypt, the sacred tradition and its relevance to modern spirituality. Chapter Two looks at esoteric architecture, sacred geography and the ancient temple. Chapter Three discusses cosmic resonance, including sacred astronomy and the lunar, solar and stellar calendars.

Chapter Four deals with Theurgy (daily rituals, ceremonies and initiation), Chapter Five with Liturgy, Chapter Six with ceremony, including the 12 festivals celebrating the powers of the 12 Neteru in the solar cosmogony. Chapter Eight: Transformation, looks at the function of ritual in divination, execration and protection, including the Opening of the Mouth ceremony.

The text is enhanced by black and white figures, tables and 4 photographs and there is a section on Sacred Names in Greek and Egyptian. The book concludes with a bibliography and index.

I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when I

first received this book. I couldn't quite get my

mind around how this practice could be restored. After

reading Ms. Clark's work I can say without a doubt she

has indeed restored the spiritual practices of Ancient

Egypt. This work is a delight to read. The author has

taken an immense amount of research and layed out the

fundamental basis for an enlightened practice of this

sacred magick. I highly recommend this work to any student of the occult.

The work is concise and thorough. It is a fitting addition to

any occult library.

A REVIEW

[...]
Once in a great while a new volume on the Temple Tradition of Ancient Egypt is released that not only sparks our interest, but demands our attention and holds onto it with tenacity. Rosemary Clark's book The Sacred Magic of Ancient Egypt: The Spiritual Practice Restored (Llewellyn Publications, 2003) is one such work- a work that should be considered mandatory reading for anyone who attempts to find meaning and a path of faith in the Wisdom Traditions of the Ancient Egyptians.
This is a large companion volume to the sizeable The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt: The Esoteric Wisdom Revealed (Llewellyn Publications, 2000), a book that is highly recommended to readers before they attempt to apply what is presented in its sequel. For students of the works of renowned metaphysician-philosopher R.A. Schwaller De Lubicz (not forgetting those of his wife Isha Schwaller De Lubicz), Rosemary Clark's volumes will become indispensable research and study guides for the high science through which the Temples, monuments and theological works of the Ancient Egyptians were composed. Whereas the strictly scholarly works of R.A. Schwaller De Lubicz serve as a tool for mapping out what Egypt's Temples and tombs say to us on an intellectual (and some would say anthropological and / or philosophical) level, Rosemary Clark has given us a far less clinical, and much more practical method for approaching the beauty of the Egyptian Mystery Traditions preserved in the monolithic religious remains of Ancient Egypt.

Format: Paperback
I recently bought this book and the book Egyptian Paganism for beginners, this book arrived in the mail first, so I naturally devoured it and was done in about ten hours. THis was an extremely well-written book, I especially loved that one of the first things that is in the book as was a table of the Non-Hellenized version of the Egyptian gods and goddesses names, which to anyone who is a practitioner of this path should be of great import, with the principle of right-speaking, it was so informative and just plain interesting. I just finished it when I put in my order for the Esoteric Wisdom of Ancient Egypt, I can only hope that it is as wekk written and just plain beautiful as the one I have already read. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially someone relatively new to this particular path. And also loved the Prologue dedicated to an article telling the story of Omm Sety.

Format: Paperback
I found this book be insightful and useful regarding Egyptian ritual practice. Since I had read the author's previous work, Sacred Tradition, and enjoyed it thoroughly, I was disappointed to find the repetition of astrological information from that work. I think that material should've definitely been referenced but certainly not repeated. However, the information regarding rituals, purifications and the like were enjoyable and interesting, therefore I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about Egyptian ritual practice.

This book is really useful. It's language is easy and the richness of the information overcame my expectations. Besides that, the illustrations are pretty good. It gives support to work alone or ritual group. Today, I have a complete different vision about how to really operate with egyptian knowlegde.
