The Egyptian underworld cycle of the Sun God Ra, who descended into the dark world of demons, gods, goddesses and the dead in order to achieve rebirth and renewal is one of the greatest mysteries in the ancient Egyptian world. It is also the proto-type for the resurrection of the Pharaoh, his court, and ultimately all Egyptian people who could afford the cost. The Amduat is a New Kingdom literary invention that encapsulates the mystery of the this passage into the twelve hours of the night. Frater Barrabbas will explore this Egyptian mystery and show how this mythic based cycle is similar to the cycle of initiation in the Western Mystery tradition. He will also show how this cycle of light and darkness, life and death is integral to the magical process of spiritual transformation, and how it emulates the cosmogonic cycle in the Trumps of the Tarot. The Tarot is indeed the lost book of Thoth of ancient Egypt, and Frater Barrabbas will show all of the elements work together to fashion a magical methodology still relevant today.
