What Is The Kemetic Round Table?

What is the Kemetic Round Table?

The Kemetic Round Table (KRT) is a blogging project aimed at providing practical, useful information for modern Kemetic religious practitioners. We noticed that many beginners in the Kemetic community have a lot of the same questions, and that there is currently no solid (and newbie safe) resource for newcomers to gain knowledge about the faith and practice. So we decided that every few weeks, a group of Kemetic bloggers would tackle a common new comer question and answer it as it obtains to their own personal practice. We’d then post our responses where others could read and learn about how other Kemetics are practicing.

We feel that the benefit of this project is twofold:

  • It creates a well-rounded resource for those looking for practical knowledge about Kemetic practices from a variety of paths.
  • It creates a community of bloggers and shows that those with differing practices can still get along and learn from one another. There is no such thing as “my way or the highway”.

It is our hope that this project will bring forth new learning and cohesiveness for the Kemetic community as a whole. You can find a list of questions that have been answered here and a list of generalized questions on the docket to be answered here. If you would like to see other questions or topics discussed, please post them in the comments below.

How do I get in on the action?

The Kemetic Round Table is open to any and all practicing Kemetics- of any seniority or flavor. If you would like to participate, simply leave a comment below that you’re joining and the blog you’ll be posting to. We’ll make sure that you’re included in future questions and release dates, and that your blog posts and responses get added to the master list. If you would like to write a response to a question that’s already been answered, create your post, tag it with “Kemetic Round Table” and add the link to the comments section- we’ll be sure to add it to the master list.

If you don’t write a Kemetic blog, but would still like to participate, we have the ability to host guest blog posts and link to them.

Our only requirement for participating in the Kemetic Round Table is that you write with respect. Please make sure that all responses are courteous and multi-path friendly. We will not accept or link to posts that are hateful or bash those of other practices or faiths. We believe firmly in embracing ma’at and community in this project, which is most simply summed up as “Don’t be a dick”. If a topic is too much of a trigger for you, simply bow out of that particular discussion. There will always be other questions to respond to.

  37. I'm not exactly a reconstructionist – more of an eclectic who just happens to be devoted to Seth, I guess is the simplest way to put it – but I'd love to participate in Kemetic Roundtable if you'll have me. My website is called Saturn Dreaming of Mercury and it's located at http://gbmarian.wordpress.com/

  46. I am interested, intensely so, in this subject. Of recent through a number of life-changes (towards strength and the positive) I came (or rather, returned) to Sobek, a deity that resonates with me, and I am interested in learning as much as I can. Mankind needs a God with a real set of balls, and I can think of none better than he.

  47. Ah, well a lot of deities have balls :P But I am glad that you've found a deity that works well for you. Luckily, the Kemetic community has a lot of resources available for people to look into :>

  48. After giving some thought, what I'm looking for in terms of resources are: #1. What would make an adequate and proper shrine? I don't have the resources of a Pharoah, but I do have significant mechanical and artistic abilities (retired automotive technician, active musician/performer, and some machinist capabilities) at my disposal. #2. Gifts, sacrifices, prayers, holy days, etc. I'll look around at some of the contributors here and see what I can find. In the meantime, any interested parties please feel free to reply. Thanks.

  49. Welp, we do have posts here at KRT on shrine making and on calendar creation, both of which will probably be helpful :>
