Grand Temple of Denderah Rites of Passage


The Grand Temple of Denderah originated in the autumn of 2006 with the first major ministry and community outreach being a rite of passage training regiment specifically for African-American daughters. Priestess Zaynabou Kaylani Gaye-El Bey had both studied modern and ancient rites of passage systems according to various international religious and cultural customs, and she had successfully gone through the final stages of the Kemetic gateways within her Sacred Sister Circle and underwent formal initiations of Sacred Woman at Queen Afua’s Smai Tawi healing center. Priestess Kaylani was inspired to manifest a system for training young African-American daughters through the trials & challenges of femininity, pubescence,  adolescence, personal development, positive self-identity and self-expression.






With the help of the Underground Railroad Educational Center & cafe of Burlington, New Jersey the Temple of Denderah Rites of Passage for African Daughters was a manifested success. Several intimate groups of young girls have been guided to a better understanding of the beauty of aboriginal, indigenous & African femininity & womanhood. Through the lessons, activities, trips & sharing that they were able to experience they were able to avoid the pitfalls of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, apprehension, fear of the future & emotional traumas that are common among adolescents. Due to the specified training to their culture & heritage, the Sun Seeds (enrolled young ladies) are also able to decipher harmful misrepresentations from the outside world that are meant to hinder their growth.

To date, the Grand Temple of Denderah has grown in its existence with each Sun Seed initiated into a Lotus Blossom. Today, the Temple also officiates birthing, naming ceremonies and annual sacred rites of passage (birthdays) for both boys & girls.
