Who were Isis and Osiris?
In Egyptian mythology, they are the Neters, the Gods, who embody two powerful archetypes. Osiris was known as the God of Transformation; he taught us how to die with dignity and be reborn in a new form. His wife Isis was the goddess of Magic and Mysteries; her love for him was so powerful that it allowed her to bring him back from death. Together they found balance between chaos and order; between destruction and rebirth; between feminine power and masculine strength. This divine relationship is both a model and an inspiration for us today.
Things, of course, are rarely as bad as they might seem, and they always, always return to normal.
Our journeys work on multiple levels: as we travel across a country, we also move through history, and culture, and, most importantly, we travel a spiritual landscape.
Just as we build an itinerary to carry us from place to place, we also construct a map for our souls to follow: guideposts to help shape our journey inward.
