The mythology of Osiris, God of the Dead, originated in ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom and endured throughout 3000 years of dynastic rule.  During that time, his image evolved from a nature spirit to God of the Dead to Lord of the Underworld.  His mythology ended with the collapse of ancient Egypt but his spirit continued to transform and is with us even today.  He is the impulse of life, the vibration that rhythmically moves everything in life, from the rise and fall of our breath, the ocean’s waves, the cycles of sleep and waking, the seasons…life and death.  We can tap into this rhythmic energy by relating to Osiris as a psychological archetype.  By resonating with this primal rhythm we consciously move with nature, both within our bodies and with the universe.  When we are out of rhythm, things go horribly wrong!  It is time to bring Osiris back into our global, collective awareness.
