RECOVERING THE LOST LIGHT

2-13 December 2009
SHAMANIC SOJOURN IN EGYPT

A Prophets Conference Journey with Hank Wesselman, Ph.D.
www.greatmystery.org/events/egyptSW.html


Horus by Anders Sandberg


A truly remarkable pilgrimage of a life-time with anthropologist and shamanic practitioner Hank Wesselman accompanied by Egyptologists who will share information on their ancient sites.

(Note: Our 2008 Egypt expedition presenting Dr. Wesselman sold-out and our current 2009 odyssey has six spaces remaining. Dr. Wesselman is not planning any future Egypt sojourns, so, if you’re interested in joining him in Egypt, you should register soon


"THE ENTIRE STORY OF JESUS, from his immaculate conception, his birth in the manger, the reverence of the three kings right up to his sacrifice at the end, was and is a reworking of the myth of Horus of Egypt."
—Tom Harpur The Pagan Christ: Recovering the Lost Light


Encounters on the Shaman's Path

Anthropologist Hank Wesselman, Ph.D.
More Thoughts from the Trail—About the Christos.

In our last column (Meta Arts Magazine 06/09) we opened up an area of depth—a nefarious region where most spiritual seekers… and even theologians… fear to tread.

In doing so, I made an observation… that the original visionary revelations that were experienced directly by the founders of our mainstream organized religions in the Western world today (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are now so far back in the past that we cannot even perceive them accurately, let alone understand them from reading, listening to and adhering to scripture.

Since those days, thousands of years in the past now, history has documented how the salaried and bureaucratized priesthoods reorganized their emerging and ever-changing religions to suit themselves as well as the times in which they lived. History also reveals how these priests intentionally distorted, censored and rewrote the original teachings and revelations of their founders to support and reinforce their own political and ideological agendas.

The end result is that today’s priests and rabbis, mullahs and bishops now have the extraordinary presumption to present themselves to us as the exclusive intermediaries between ourselves, as well as our communities, and the supernatural realms that they claim to know so much about.

Yet as we have observed, with rare exceptions, most of these worthies possess no visionary abilities themselves. In fact, most of them are no more likely than the members of their communities to encounter the transpersonal forces that the traditional people call spirits, nor have most of them even had a glimpse of the transpersonal worlds that these forces inhabit.

Despite this… our religious specialists, in all their assumed importance, rigidly adhere to and teach what they themselves have been taught by other non-visionaries who relied on scripture themselves. And so almost without exception, those priests will never convey any new visionary experiences of their own to enhance and refresh the original revelations of their religions’ founders.

Many writers and theologians have called this one of the truly great tragedies of the modern world—that the spiritually blind have for so long been allowed to mislead and misguide the spiritually blind about the very experiences and revelations that gave rise to our religious traditions in the first place.

And this is precisely why these religions are destined to fail us—and to be relegated to the dustbin of history.

The writer Graham Hancock adds (in his seminal book Supernatural) that our so-called 'paranormal' abilities, used for so long by our indigenous ancestors with reverence and caution to explore and learn from non-ordinary reality and its inhabitants, have been intentionally and continually diverted by our priestly bureaucrats into the various spiritual dead ends of the ‘ecclesia’ where everything is dogma, endlessly repeated, where almost no one has first hand experiences of the transpersonal realms… and where nothing new may be discovered and learned.

Yet the truth is always just there, waiting for us to encounter it just on the other side of the mirror. For this is the epicenter of the shaman's path—the direct, transpersonal and transformative experience of the sacred realms that defines the visionary.

Let us now say a bit more about this, not so much to bash the authorities of our organized religions although many of them certainly deserve it, but rather to give my readers permission to open the doorway into an experience of spiritual freedom and growth that has not existed in the Western world for almost 2000 years....
