Mistress of the Temple is a wonderful book by Yvonne Harlech about the woman known as Omm Sety. Anyone with an interest in Egypt has probably heard of her and her amazing experiences in Abydos. Yvonne has taken her story and given it an added dimension.

For those who know the story of Omm Sety it is a wonderful journey into how life must have been for Dorothy Eady living these amazing experience. For those who don't know Omm Sety but are fascinated by ancient Egypt it gives us a glimpse into what life must have been like for a temple priestess in Abydos in Pharaonic time.

Yvonne uses story telling as well as historical facts to weave this beautiful tale about a fascinating woman, Omm Sety, and her past incarnation as Bentreshy. Through her descriptive storytelling Yvonne seeds us with ancient wisdom. She takes us to a time that most people feel a strong connection to. And to a magical place, Abydos, which has great significance for all of humanity.

For those who have never had the opportunity to visit Abydos Mistress of the Temple is an opportunity to connect to the transformative powers of this very ancient place that not only summoned Dorothy Eady back home but call to many others on their journey back to the Beloved.
