9780473231439: 'O Egypt, Egypt': A personal exploration of Ancient and Modern Egypt and a Spiritual Odyssey

‘O Egypt, Egypt,’ is not only a fascinating read for the armchair traveller but also a handy guide to those wishing to discover this ancient world for themselves. In this easy read, the author’s affinity and kinship with the ancient land of the pharaohs will resonate with many readers on many levels. This lively travel journal not only makes the wonders of Egypt accessible to the reader but also leads into clear esoteric insights woven through its history and drama. An appendix on Egyptian Temples provides interesting insights at various levels of spiritual understanding into the roles of the temples as holders of the Ancient Wisdom. Author, Warwick Keys is an Egyptophile who realises his lifelong dream to explore ancient Egypt, with a focus on the great temples of Upper Egypt. The New Zealand writer and esotericist along with three family members followed their own route, free from organised tours, in a twenty-one day odyssey. The impact of the journey changed the author’s life forever. The grandeur and scale of the great temples and the enchantment of Egypt beguiled them all. The journey turned unexpectedly into an ‘initiatory’ experience recalling echoes from the long distant past for the author, particularly in Upper Egypt, the ancient land of Kush. “To explore a little of that amazing land on the Nile, the cradle of so much that had helped create modern civilisation, religious beliefs and spiritual and cultural endeavour was a fantastic experience – not just the temples, but also the land, the great river Nile and the wonderful friendly and hospitable people we met.”
