Open this book and you´ll find a marvelous array of fresh, exciting ideas to deepen your connection to the turning of the Wheel of the Year. Here is a tremendously practical guide to celebrating the Pagan festivals that does more than just teach you about the "old ways" - you will learn how to combine old customs with new expressions of your beliefs that will fit today´s lifestyle and your chosen tradition.
Comprehensive chapters on each of the eight Sabbats are packed with valuable ideas for inexpensive seasonal parties in which Pagans and non-Pagans alike can participate to celebrate the turning of the seasons - as well as numerous craft ideas and recipes to enrich your celebrations. The sixteen complete texts of Sabbat rituals can be adapted to specific traditions and individual tastes - and they provide a deeply satisfying way for both covens and solitaries to formally honor the Sabbats.
If you are new to Paganism, you will find the background on Pagan tenets, teachings and tools necessary to give you a cohesive framework for integrating this material into your emerging practice. For those who are already dedicated Pagans, this guide presents new and thought-provoking ideas for observances that are guaranteed to enhance any coven´s rituals and gatherings.
