Sunday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais.
This is the third great festival in Sais to Aset (Isis).
In an under-chapel beneath the temple, lamps were carried in procession around the coffin of Asar (Osiris).
It was by the power of light, symbolising the life-giving power of the Moon, that Aset rekindled life in her dead husband.
Image of an Egyptian oil lamp, by Ella Tritton, is based on a 3,000 year old oil lamp artifact we found catalogued online, but we have it burning with violet flame. The Ancient Egyptians were reputed to have technology which enabled them to create lamps which burnt with eternal flame.
The exact date of the Festival of the Burning of the Lamps is actually the 13th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Epeiph, so confusion arises when trying to convert this to our Gregorian calendar and some sources give variations especially 21st June.
Wonderful and informative laminated posters, by the talented Jacqui Taliesin El Masry (Alkhemi.co.uk) featuring Aset (Isis) and other Egyptian Deities, are available from us. See our Egyptian Deity Poster page under Harmony Shop.
By keeping traditions, Khemitian (Ancient Egyptian) communities retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest bathing+ sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits (see Forest Bathing+ section of this site on the purple navigation bar above for more about this concept and dates of our events).
Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is on Wednesday 23rd June, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT +1). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates.
During these monthly session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucher for a birthday or other celebratory occasion?
