NO ONE ELSE TEACHES MUMMIFICATION. This is NOT the HISTORY of Mummification, this is TRAINING IN THE ACTUAL PROCESS OF MUMMIFICATION BY SORCERESS CAGLIASTRO
"I have studied and researched the Art of Mummification for over 30 years, and during this time have experimented with formulas, holding environments, fat and animal content, humidity and timing, as well as wrappings, and unguents and scents necessary to complete the action. Others have tried this and not produced results comparable with the historical success of Mummification. I would be most willing at this point to take my skills to a human subject, and I am sure that option will present itself."
quote by Sorceress Cagliastro
...There will be only 10 seats available for this TRAINING....
In this Training, students will meet four times, for four hours each session. There are a full 16 hours of training. The entire process takes approximately 92 days which the data shows is the average time the process requires in order to be fully successful on smaller animals.
The sessions will occur in my studio in Brooklyn New York. This neighborhood is filled with opportunities for enjoyment, and fully accessible to trains and buses, therefore making access to Manhattan just a short train ride....
Regarding the materials, we will be utilizing animals who were prepared for the pet feed industry, so no animals will be “sacrificed” for this work. You will be provided with the materials in the layers and timing that is necessary to complete the process... Desiccation time (drying out of moisture) is necessary and for this process to maintain its integrity, as we will not be utilizing any artificial drying such as machines or dehumidifiers. This pacing is necessary to allow the student to fully understand the process over the time it requires.
Mummification requires scents. Esteemed Perfumer Darren Alan White (see bio below) will be providing the scents we will be utilizing in the process. He will also be there when scents are introduced to educate us about the choice of scent elements which will aid in the preservation/desiccation process, as well as in the process of creating a buffer between the dis-pleasurable experience of the scent of decomposition and the Mummifier. Scents are important; indeed they are imperative to the process of Mummification.
Students will be utilizing Egyptian traditional wrappings in this process, and will learn to create, design and ornament them appropriately, including talisman placement amongst the wrappings. Registered students will receive additional information regarding the opportunity to place personal objects within the wrappings for the purpose of allowing the student to complete any lingering grieving processes.
This process occurs over approximately 92 days, as that is the necessary length of the process to fully create a mummified individual of the size and type we will utilize in this process.... If you are not a resident of NY, I suggest one of the many Airbnb’s nearby if you choose to enjoy the area for extra days.
The studio space will allow for students to process the materials, and will have the appropriate reverence and mood for the work at hand. Mummification is both clinical and emotional. It requires a reverence for the animal, and a respect of the self. We will work together to ALLOW for and to CREATE the appropriate intention to match the appropriateness of the environment.
The final date will conclude with a ceremony/ritual to demonstrate the methods that would be used to lay the Mummy into its final resting place.
Boxes will be provided for students to leave with their mummies.
