Normandi Ellis is an award-winning writer, workshop facilitator, and archpriestess of the Fellowship of Isis. She leads tours to Egypt and is the author and coauthor of several books, including Hieroglyphic Words of Power, The Union of Isis and Thoth, and Imagining the World into Existence. She lives in Franklin County, Kentucky.

Awakening Osiris is a perennial, a classic in the combined realm of Egyptology, spirituality, and pure literary achievement.”
—Kathleen McGowan, New York Times bestselling author of The Expected One
 
Awakening Osiris is not only a translation and a book of Egyptian religion, but also a spiritual work that will serve many Pagans as a prayer book of sorts, a book of meditations—something not to be read and left on the shelf, but to return to repeatedly.”
—Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of Spirits
 
A beautiful and engaging rendering of The Egyptian Book of the Dead that reveals the soul and spirit of Egypt

 
The Egyptian Book of the Dead is one of the oldest and greatest classics of Western spirituality. With Awakening Osiris, Ellis has transformed the ancient stories told through hieroglyphs for modern readers and approaches the Book of the Dead as a profound spiritual text capable of speaking to us today. These writings suggest that the divine realm and the human realm are not altogether separate; they remind us that the natural world—the substance of our lives—is fashioned from the stuff of the gods.
 
This edition replaces the previous edition (ISBN 978-0933999749) and contains a new introduction and study guide by the author.

It makes sense of living and dying. Normandi Ellis’s understanding of the many nuances of the Book of the Dead breathes life into the words, making ancient Egypt live again, while never losing touch with the present.” —Tamra Lucid,author of Making the Ordinary Extraordinary “Not a translation, a reinvention—in itself a great work of poetic art. From devoted study and long immersion in the writing of ancient Egypt arose this celebration of life and illumination of death, filled with beautiful appreciations of the details of love and living. Read Awakening Osiris to someone you love.” —Ronnie Pontiac, author of American Metaphysical Religion
