About Tenu

My name is Ty Barbary; I go by Tenu (full name Itenumuti, formerly Emky) in most spiritual venues, but I’ll answer to either. :)

I am a Shemsu (follower) of Kemetic Orthodoxy, divined a child of Nebthet-Nit-Seshat and Hethert-Nut, beloved of Ma’ahes and Serqet. I have followed Sekhmet for half a dozen years before encountering the House of Netjer and falling into stride with its amazing community and nourishing practices. I have also loved and lived Celtic-inspired eclectic paganism for longer than I’ve known any of my Egyptian gods, and my soul’s marrow is still rich with Gaulish soil. I practice energy-work and have a strong animal-based spirituality, founded in zoology and ecology.

I am also a fiction-writer, music-maker, spirit-painter, jewelry-crafter, science-lover, student of martial arts, genderqueer, and paid geek for a global travel company. I live in northern Texas with my beloved partner Jerynn, four cats, and two dogs. If you’re still curious, I’ve got a long bio over here.

This blog has been created for the sole purpose of sharing my experience with my community, so please don’t hesitate to leave comments and talk to me. :) If you prefer Dreamwidth, I’m right here. And, of course, my email is always open for discourse: itenumuti at gmail dot com.
