The Inner Guide to Egypt is both a tantalizing tour of Egyptian culture and a unique tool for spiritual enrichment, guiding you on a self-initiation into the Egyptian Mysteries. This rich system for spiritual development uses the Nile as a metaphor for astral travel. As you journey along this river of consciousness to visit sacred sites, you will discover how each site corresponds to physiological and psychological functions within. Guided meditations and visualization exercises enliven this ancient tradition, inviting you to explore shamanism; deities, gods, and goddesses, burial rites; hieroglyphics; the Great Pyramids; and Ka, the Egyptian concept of soul.
Alan Richardson was born in Northumberland, England, in 1951, and has been writing on the topic of magic for many years. He does not belong to any occult group or society, does not take pupils, and does not give lectures on any kind of initiation. He insists on holding down a full-time job in the real world like any other mortal. That, after all, is part and parcel of the real magical path. He is married with four children and lives very happily in a small village in the southwest of England.
