    Since I follow a couple traditions, I was just curious how those who adhere to Kemetic traditions follow them. Please forgive my ignorance.

    1. How would you define your practice? Is it more philosophical? Is it more spiritual in nature?

    2. Do you belong to a house or do you practice in private?

    3. Do you interact with the Ntr? How do they interact with you?

    4. Are there any special days in your tradition?

    5. Do the Ntr accept offerings or blood sacrifices?

    6. How did you get into the practice?

    Thanks

    i do my own thing. there is a hesp but i don't really fit in.
    i have read and studied but i don't remember most it it. i have trouble memorizing stuff.
    that's why i can't really deal with people who have all the writing memorized.
    there is a lot of people who have it down chapter and verse and they always trying to 'gotcha'. so i stay away.

    there are usually rituals around the solstice and the equinox.

    i have some things happen but it's on the border line. can't be sure if somebody is talking or not.

    no sacrifices.

    i got into it when i thought i was going to die and i needed some information or plan.
    then i did not die and now i'm still here wondering why.

    in todays world nobody trying to hear anything that an old person got to say so i have no role.

    in any case, you should read the books.

    I define my practice as the "Afrikan Way"! A combination of the best of all of the numerous ethnic groups in Afrika.

    When I was younger, I purchased those books. They contained cool info but they were too intellectual and metaphysical for me. Alot of it just flew right over my head.
