Per Weben Benu: House of Phoenix Rising
Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Nashua, New Hampshire
Key Contact: Rev. Caine Steele
Spiritual Path: Tameran (Egyptian) Wicca
Status: Group Forming
Community Support: Legal Clergy...
Group Overview: Em hotep (welcome, in peace) !
Per Weben Benu- the House of Phoenix Rising- is a new online coven, with dreams of someday attaining a physical location with land to serve as a retreat center and place for any and all spiritual groups to gather if they need it. We are going to incorporate as a religious group and/or pursue tax-exempt status (if need be) later on, once we are a bit more established.
It is a Tameran Wiccan coven- ie, it follows an Egyptian Wiccan path. We are a teaching tradition and coven, coming together with love of the Egyptian deities, committed to honoring the joy of Zep Tepi- the First Time which can be found in every moment- and through this, honoring the Greater Balance. We fuse together the old Egyptian practices and Wiccan practices where there are similarities, and go beyond simply 'deity-swapping' or making 'piecemeal' patchwork religious practices. While an authentic Egyptian ritual might show up now and then in our practices, we are -not- Kemetic Reconstructionist or Kemetic Orthodox. While some might believe that taking pieces of the old ways and putting them into a new context is disrespectful, we acknowledge that we are in a new era and unable to perform the exact rites- either through some parts missing from time eroding them away, or simply in a vastly different culture than the ancient Egyptian peoples. What Per Weben Benu offers is a more comprehensive Egyptian-Wiccan practice than simply calling an Egyptian god and goddess during a Wiccan rite. Our rites and lessons draw directly on the information we have left available to us which has survived the passage of time, which is a rare gift. There is nothing 'wrong' with being a Wiccan devoted to the Egyptian deities any moreso than there is to focusing on the Celtic deities within Celtic Wicca, Norse deities, or any other pantheon, and the variety only adds to the lovely tapestry of Wiccan practices and deepens one's relationship with divine energies- and we are in a new age.
Lessons are on an individual basis and at the student's pace- rather than a traditional year and a day study. We go into this more in depth on our website. We cover "core" Wicca and then Egyptian information and the similarities and marked differences with ancient Egyptian practices, then the hows/whys of the fusion being taught. It leaves room open for personal self-growth and positive development.
This coven is for you if you are a newcomer to Wicca seeking to join an Egyptian coven (not simply an eclectic coven working with Egyptian deities now and then) and learn a comprehensive, in-depth Egyptian-Wiccan practice, or if you are already devoted to the sacred Neter (Egyptian deities) in personal practice and seek to become part of a coven of likeminded individuals.
Thus far we have 4 people, and it is expected to grow as more people find out about us and seek to learn.
Come drop by for a while and learn more! Our lessons are free.
