What is Kemetic Reform?

Kemetic is a modern term based upon the ancient Egyptian word for their country, Kemet. While 'Kemetic' can mean different things to different groups of people, here it refers to any number of Neo-Pagan or New Religious Movements that focus upon ancient Egyptian-themed worship. As a Kemetic practice that is neither purely Reconstructionist - understood as part of the broader theme of Pagan Reconstructionism - nor 'Orthodox' (which is another tradition), our practice is thus called Kemetic Reform. While basing our liturgy on ancient texts, we also adapt wherever necessary to match the spirit of ancient practice with modern needs.

What's New For 2024?

By request from our Discord community, you can now read and follow along with our Friday live streaming service here. Still in the works is a booklet containing the live service ritual, plus additional prayers and some popular poems/hymns that we've added in recent years. As soon as that comes together you'll find a link to it on this website, so make sure you bookmark us!

Also coming up: Upet Ronpet Nofrit - Happy Kemetic New Year! Our year officially starts on July 18th, and 2024 marks the start of Year 20! Whether you're celebrating along with us or observing later in the summer, you can use these Prayers For Upet Ronpet at your own personal shrine. And plan for the year ahead with our Kemetic Reform Calendar for 2024-2025!

(Until then, you can finish our the current year with us using our Kemetic Reform Calender for 2023-24).

Also new - a resource for our Mesopotamian Pagan friends! Check out our first-ever Mesopotamian Calendar of observances.

By popular request, you can now read and share our poem about Anubis, "The Jackal Draws His Blade" - and with the poem, links to help you or someone you know who may be struggling with thoughts of suicide. Help is out there!

As we work on the process of legal incorporation, you can learn more about Kemetic Reform beliefs on our Basics page. There you can also download issues of the Kemetic Reform newsletter, Horizon, as well as two .PDF brochures, "Do Egyptian Pagans Worship Idols?" and "Isis, Not ISIS".

Our basic beliefs are also laid out in these Articles of Faith, which will ultimately become part of our official documents. These articles also explain how Kemetic Reform differs from other modern traditions.


Watch our services online:

Since spring of 2020 (in response to the pandemic), we have been live streaming Friday evening rituals on YouTube via our Kemetic Independent Channel. You can tune in around 8:45 PM CST (Central US time). To give an idea of what services are like, watch this pre-taped broadcast from April 2022 here.

A "Temple of Millions of Years" - The Online Temple of Tutankhamun

In ancient Egypt, it was customary for each Pharaoh to commission a memorial temple in his name. These "Temples of Millions of Years", as Egyptians called them, were places of devotion to the gods during a Pharaoh's lifetime; after his (or her, in Hatshepsut's case) death, they also became commemorative shrines. Famous Pharaohs such as Amunhotep I and Ramesses II were venerated, much as saints are today, in their own memorial temples for centuries after their passing. Tutankhamun's own Temple of Millions of Years was usurped by his successors, then ultimately destroyed. But today, having become the most famous Pharaoh of all time, it is only fitting that Tutankhamun, or "King Tut", have the first Virtual Temple of Millions of Years.

This site began in 2005 as a simple e-shrine with information and a few links about the famous Pharaoh and his world. Over the years, the virtual Temple has expanded to include more information about Egyptian religion, in both ancient and modern contexts. With a small corner of realspace to call our own and a growing circle of friends both on- and offline, our goal is to legally incorporate the Temple as the first Kemetic Reform church, with Tutankhamun as our 'patron saint'.

Now you can even take a 'virtual tour' of a 3D-modeled Temple of Tutankhamun:
