Hello, I’m Michael Sheppard.  I edited the Quareia course.  I also translated The Book of Gates, which has just been published by Quareia Publishing UK.

This is mainly a blog about Ancient Egyptian magic and mysticism, with special attention paid to the difficult bits: the bits that don’t seem to fit, that are tangled up, or that don’t seem to make much sense.  Often it’s the wrinkles that give the best clues about what lies beneath.
