    It really depends on the practitioner.

    I've known exactly three people that claim Tameran Wicca as their tradition--one practices Wicca with Egyptian deities, another worships the Egyptian gods using contemporary Pagan practices, and the third practices more of a synchretic blend


    Either way, you might find this interesting: http://www.wiccantogether.com/profil...-tameran-wicca
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: New to Kemetic Paganism? Basic info for newbies!

    I can't believe I just noticed this.. Thanks for the link, Thal!
    However, the article leads me to another question. Just because I'm someone who prefers clear definitions. What's the difference between a Tameran Wiccan and a Kemetic, then? The only official Kemetic path is KO, but I don't see myself as someone who follows their "rules of the game". If I had to compare this to Judaism (because it's easier for me), then I'm like the "Masorati" people. Those who celebrate the holidays and believe in the basic codex of the religion. In my case, the 42 purifications of Ma'at.

    Imo, it's the Wiccan part.....either their ritual structure or beliefs with Egyptian deities or a hybrid system
