Part 2: Lessons 13-29 include advancing philosophical and mystic wisdom of the Egyptian Mysteries

Who is Dr. Muata Ashby and what is Egyptian Yoga and Shetaut Neter? What is Kemetic culture and philosophy? Who were the ancient Kemetans and why is it important to know their legacy and follow the universal principles they discovered?

This course is an introductory program for those who are desirous of obtaining a basic overview of the work of Dr. Muata Ashby on the concept and teaching of Egyptian Yoga and the history and main philosophy of Shetaut Neter or Egyptian Mysteries and the foundations of Ancient Egyptian history, culture, philosophy and spiritual systems. This course is also for those interested in a very low intensity program where they can get an idea of how the university course are conducted before registering for more intensive courses. This course uses a lecture series that will provide a beginning aspirant with a working knowledge of the contents of the Book Series by Dr. Ashby and fundamental teachings on the subjects of:

  • Origins of Ancient Egyptian civilization and relation to Africa, Europe, Mesopotamia and India
  • Fundamental teachings of Sema (Egyptian Yoga)
  • Fundamental principles of myth, religion and philosophy
  • Fundamental teachings of Neterianism (Shetaut Neter) Ancient Egyptian Mysteries spirituality

Working with a mentor you receive weekly feedback on your studies.

Many times, those who are interested in the teaching of Sema Tawy (Egyptian Yoga) and Shetaut Neter (Neterianism/Egyptian Mysteries) are not sure about the path or would simply like to have an introduction first before engaging more time and effort in additional studies.

After completing PART 1 the student will pass automatically to PART 2 of this program.

PART 2 is titled Egyptian Mysteries Level 1 Part 2 which is dedicated to developing a thorough foundation in the teaching and philosophy of Kemetic Wisdom. So this course should be seen as beginner to advancing studies of Kemetic Wisdom and Egyptian Mysteries.

It is fundamental to the program as a whole firstly that aspirants may know how everything fits together and to make sure that no basics have been left out. Therefore, even for those aspirants who have been initiated at Shemsu level, if after the the review it is found that some aspirants may have missed some part of the L1 teaching they may be asked to review that part but not necessarily take the whole L1 course.

Working at one’s own pace

The coursework has been setup with each lesson to be completed every 2 weeks. However, the aspirant may elect to take longer in accordance with their needs, bearing in mind that as long as the membership subscription remains active that the membership subscription fee will be charged monthly. The aspirant should keep in mind that they are to find a balance between intensity and capacity. It will not help to force a certain level of intensity if it will cause undue stress. On the other hand, if there is greater capacity but lackadaisical execution, that will also harm the capacity to move forward.
