The Feast of Sekhmet (Background)
Inspired by an ancient celebration that saw people coming together to honor the power of the energy [NTRT] Sekhmet, the powerful one, is a fiery energy and we take this opportunity to invoke that fire to fuel and motivate us during the cold winter months, when normally the dreariness of the season might threaten to bring our mood and energy down.
One of the most significant portions of the evening involves a ceremony where we burn away the unhealthy traits and habits that have plagued us, asking Sekhmet to purge us of that which holds us back so that we have the power to proceed. We reenact the story of Sekhmet - how the people disobeyed Ra; how He created Sekhmet to punish them; how Her bloodlust was uncontrollable and Djehuty stepped in to use His wisdom to subdue Her - and everyone is encouraged to participate.
