Jeremy Naydler, Ph.D., is a philosopher who specializes in the religious life of ancient cultures. He is a Fellow of the Temenos Academy and author of Temple of the Cosmos, Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts, The Future of the Ancient World, and Goethe on Science. He lives in Oxford, England.
Jeremy Naydler's radical reinterpretation of the Pyramid Texts--the earliest body of religious literature from ancient Egypt--now places these documents into the ritual context in which they belong. It is the shamanic spiritual tradition, argues Naydler, that is the undercurrent of the Pyramid Texts and holds the key to ancient Egyptian mysticism.
In this guide to the cosmology of ancient Egypt, Jeremy Naydler recreates the experience of living in another time and place. Temple of the Cosmos explores Egypt's sacred geography and mythology, revealing with unprecedented clarity an ancient consciousness in tune with the rhythms of the earth. It also breaks new ground by placing the work of other Egyptologists in a magical context.
In The Future of the Ancient World Jeremy Naydler examines the evolution of human consciousness over the past five thousand years, revealing how we lost our ability to connect with the world of gods, spirits and ancestors, and how we can find our way back.
