Safe Pagans: A response to peer violence in the Kemetic neo-pagan online community

February 14, 2021

  Peer violence is a confronting topic to address and in all honesty, I wish I didn’t have to. But someone has to. The intention of this post is to promote spiritual safety for all pagans, particularly newcomers.

Book Review of Profane Egyptologists: The Modern Revival of Ancient Egyptian Religion by Paul Harrison — Part One

January 31, 2021

The Kemetic Cookie Co: An Offbeat Review of Sharon LaBorde’s Live Kemetic Reform Service on YouTube

October 18, 2020

  The Kemetic Cookie Co is not a real enterprise but wouldn’t it be nice if it was? I had a flash of inspiration for it during Sharon LaBorde’s live Kemetic Reform service on YouTube, which I’ll talk more about in a sec; I’m on a roll with these cookies here. We could reinvent the fortune cookie with a Kemetic spin and that could be the start of…
