Introduction to Hieroglyphs for Magicians

An intro to the basics of reading Egyptian Hieroglyphs, and how they were used in magick. The word "Hieroglyph" means "sacred inscription". Myth informs us that it was a gift to humanity from the God Tahuti. This beautiful writing is a complex system of sound-signs and ideograms. We will go over the basic principles of hieroglyphs. You will learn how to write your name, the names of some of the Gods, and some basic vocabulary. We will examine how hieroglyphs were used in spells and as amulets. We will also read the hieroglyphs on the Stele of Revealing. If you have a copy of "The Holy Books of Thelema" by Aleister Crowley you may want to bring it, as we will be using the translations in there. Saturday, January 23, at 6:00 pm at Altered Stages 212 W 29th St., 3rd floor New York, NY 10001 (near 7th Ave.)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
