Deep within each of us lives a primal memory of a time when the natural world was recognized as divine and our temples were built from sacred materials enlivened through magic. Temples were not places you visited once a week; they were centres of community, divine work, healing, and wisdom, places where Heaven and Earth meet. This union of Heaven and Earth--the sacred temple--is also a union of Thoth and Isis: the Egyptian god of wisdom and the creative cosmic force and the Egyptian goddess of civilizing knowledge. Their relationship established the celestial teachings on Earth, for Thoth taught Isis all the mysteries and magic she knows and Isis acted as Thoth's instrument to deliver the teachings in a form humanity could use.

In this initiatic guide to temple building on the spiritual and physical planes, Normandi Ellis and Nicki Scully explain how to create a communal spiritual structure for connecting with the ancient Egyptian pantheon as well as how to consecrate yourself and become a vessel suitable for divine wisdom and a home for your personal gods. The authors detail the construction, shamanic visioning, and ritual consecration of a Moon Temple dedicated to Thoth. They explore teachings that help you develop relationships with the Egyptian neteru and realize your place within the family of the Egyptian pantheon. They guide you as you create your inner heart temple, the adytum, a safe place in which to receive guidance and access your higher spiritual bodies and oracular gifts. They provide shamanic journeys and initiations on ascension, shamanic death and renewal, soul retrieval and healing, multidimensional realities, and more.

By creating a sacred temple within and without, we each can take part in the union of Isis and Thoth and restore the magic of the Egyptian mysteries to our time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
. . . skillfully interweaves ancient wisdom and spiritual healing into a practical plan to help people actualize their highest potential and sacred purpose. This highly readable book offers valuable insights and simple practices that enable readers to move beyond misperceived limitations and create lives overflowing with love, peace, and happiness. * Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., epigenetic scientist and author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolut *
"The Union of Isis and Thoth is a fine distillation of Nicki Scully and Normandi Ellis's work defining the essential characteristics of the neteru, and they share their guidance for building temples and the invocation of these divine beings. This excellent book with beautiful photos and illustrations offers their shared path for housing the divine in the world, amazingly in a pure and simple text that comes from very high places." * Barbara Hand Clow, author of The Mind Chronicles: A Visionary Guide into Past Lives and Revelations *
"This is a fabulous book--a treasure. It begins with cautionary information about metaphysical practice and proceeds through a sweeping overview of the gods of ancient Egypt, revealing that the origin of the ancient word for a divine being--neter--and the root of the Coptic word netjer, meaning "god," etymologically become the English word nature. This book is a rich resource destined to become a classic." * Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., anthropologist and coauthor of Awakening to the Spirit World *
"Postmodern Priestesses Nicki and Normandi have crafted a book for temple builders of the future, to teach us the ancient mysteries and open the gates of wisdom embedded in the living gods and goddesses of Egypt. Thoth and Isis have offered this vision to these authors, who share with our desecrated world a vision of planetary renewal." * Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, artists and coauthors of Net of Being *
". . . an invitation to forge a deep, meaningful, and direct relationship with the pantheon and your inner sanctuary from a place of equanimity: eye-to-eye, peer-to-peer, divine-to-divine. Perhaps your best friend, divine partner, and staunch ally resides within these pages. Once you are reunited your life is forever changed. * Danielle Rama Hoffman, author of The Temples of Light and The Council of Light *
"The authors have written a rich shamanic tapestry that eloquently weaves the sacred threads of Thoth's wisdom into the high magic and love of Queen Isis. Enter and explore the initiations presented in this book through the union of these two amazing energies." * Linda Star Wolf, Ph.D., founder of Venus Rising Association for Transformation and coauthor of Shama *
"Normandi and Nicki's combined and deep wisdom of ancient Egypt and its pantheon weave a portal of initiation through magic and ritual. This book is a must have!" * Kathryn Ravenwood, author of How to Create Sacred Water *
"The Union of Isis and Thoth is a unique gift to all those questing for the essence of mystical Egypt. It is the essential guide of practical wisdom delivered from the mind of Thoth to a waiting world." * Naomi Ozaniec, author of The Breath of Isis *
"The Union of Isis and Thoth is yet another gem which causes me to stop every few pages and think with delighted envy: I didn't know that!" * Alan Richardson, author of The Inner Guide to Egypt *
"All true seekers can benefit from the vivid imagery and profound initiatory teachings provided in this remarkable book." * Robert Simmons, The Tucson Metaguide, January 2016 *
"The esoteric tradition has long held that the initiate is a temple, and thus the purpose of initiation is to prepare that human temple for a greater influx of the Divine. The Union of Isis and Thoth teaches us how to make that initiatory temple real within ourselves. The inner journeys through which they lead us are beautiful and visceral. The magic is potent. The Mysteries are revealed by experienced teachers. Let this book help you realize the union of Heaven and Earth in the place where they have always met: the sacred temple of the self." * M. Isidora Forrest, author of Isis Magic and Offering to Isis *
"This is a beautiful book that uses, explains and teaches the ancient mysteries and opens up the wisdom of the Gods and Goddesses of ancient Egypt. This is also an excellent Egyptian history and source for the understanding of who the Gods of Egypt were, and what they represented and what their powers were." * Awareness Magazine, Gary Miller, May 2016 *
