   Not yet recommended

Many books may tell you how to cast a Wiccan circle, but none really bother to explain why. When you finish reading The Elements of Ritual, you'll know what each step of the circle-casting ceremony means, why it's there, and what it accomplishes. You'll learn several alternative approaches to each step, and you'll be empowered to write your own effective ceremonies using sound magical, theological, and pragmatic principles.

  • Advanced, sophisticated Witchcraft philosophy and practice
  • Delves further into the theology and theory of every phase of ritual, along with practical how-tos and how-not-tos, and much esoteric, hard-to-find information
  • Every step of ritual has at least two sample scripts, including an avant-garde example
  • Provides detailed instructions for writing your own ritual
  • Includes meditations on the deeper meanings of each phase of ritual

Balance is an elusive quality that we all strive for, and the New Year is a particularly good time for us to start fresh in this arena. As pagans, the essence of our beliefs is captured by the notion of balance — the balance of the seasons, of light ...

When I wrote my first book, The Elements of Ritual, it was like a brain dump. I had been teaching classes and working in Wiccan groups for almost twenty years at that point, and writing was like downloading all those years into a word processor. ...
Some people love spellbooks, and some people hate them. The loveable part is the neat tips and tricks; new little ideas, bits of folklore that dress up magic and make it both more fun and more powerful. I like flipping through and thinking, “Oooh … ...

It seems strange, doesn't it? A patron saint of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other sexually fluid shades in-between. Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true.
