Here, in one easy-to-read volume, is their collection of chants, invocations, circle-castings, quarter-callings, spells and ceremonies. It is also a "kit" to use to assemble your own rituals, for any season or reason: Book I presents a basic ritual outline. Book II gives numerous example of actual ceremonies. These can be adapted and modified as needed for any size group. Book III provides an assortment of full rituals and ritual elements for celebrations of the eight great seasonal festivals called the Wheel of the Year. Versions of these have been commemorated for millennia in most traditional cultures of the Northern Hemisphere and today are universal throughout the worldwide Pagan Community.

    As insightful as Ravenheart himself, this book by both he and his wife is the cherished collection of lifetime of memories. It is also a wealth of information on everything from high, ceremonial, magical circle creation to the easiest of passage circles. It is a treasure that every Pagan should read and own.

    A good reference for anyone looking to create a pagan ritual. (Or maybe not everyone, just newbs? I don't have a lot of experience.)Starts with a sort of generic ritual format, then gives lots of specific examples for each part. Some of the examples seemed kind of corny, but there were some I really liked.

  • Deb White

    Most were fine, but some worried me. There are other books more suitable for references, even though I still love Zell.

  • Rebecca

    i use this as a reference book regularly. Great ideas for ceremony.
