Creating Circles & Ceremonies

By Oberon & Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart

New Page Books, 2006

Review by Anodea Judith

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and his wife, Morning Glory, have done it at last. Compiling decades of experience in creating rituals and ceremonies for all occasions, from the celebrations of the seasons to blessing your dinner or a new home, this book will provide ideas, information, theory, and practice to bring a sense of the sacred into everyday life.

Author of the acclaimed Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard, Oberon has written a Pagan bible that every practitioner of magic and ritual will want to have on a shelf within easy reach. With spells, chants, invocations, herbal recipes, and more, you won't want to go through a moon cycle without using this book.

From my many years of working together with this magical couple in the Church of All Worlds, I am delighted that our vast treasury of Pagan liturgy has finally been written down. Collected from many contributors, this compilation brings together the best of the Pagan community in poetry and song, innovation and invocation, including our Magic 101 class that was offered for many years as a primer in magical training.

The wealth of information herein is divided into three smaller sections. Book I, "The Magic Circle" outlines the basic theory and practice of creating ceremonies, such as creating sacred space, calling the quarters, invoking spirits, deities, or helpers, and basic ritual etiquette. Book II, "Rites and Rituals" describes ceremonies for all occasions, including rites of passage, marriages, and initiations.

Format: Paperback
This book is the ultimate guide to the solitary. It can be quite difficult to organize your family celebrations without the aid and expertise of a priest/ess. This book helps me to create rituals and circles that the whole family can participate in (children and Christians alike) at a level that everyone is capable and comfortable with. It has also been a great help in organizing my private ceremonies. Even when there is no reason to cast a circle or perform a ceremony the book contains a great deal of daily inspiration. It's truely herbal tea for the pagan soul.

Format: Paperback
This is an incredible resource for anyone who is organizing, conducting or writing a ritual. I had always been a solitaire, but when I was asked to perform a sabbat ritual for a group of beginners, I jumped on the opportunity. Because my own personal rituals were highly impromptu, I knew the group ritual needed more structure. I shopped for a few good books, and I am very glad I bought this one. I highly recommend it for both beginners and those with more experience. It's not a book you would necessarily read from cover to cover (although you could), but is more of a useful collection of writings you can turn to every time you wish to create a ritual.

Headmaster Oberon of The Grey School of Wizardry has done it again! 'Creating Circles and Ceremonies: Rituals For All Seasons And Reasons' is the difinitive research tool for those seeking the how-to's for creating Sacred Space, Altars of all types, Ritual, and much more. I've been a practicing Pagan for years and learned that you can indeed teach an old dog new tricks. A must read for anyone regardless of chosen Path.

Format: Paperback
If the authors' names sound familiar, it's because they've spent over thirty years traveling the world's magical communities and meeting with leaders of varying traditions: CREATING CIRCLES & CEREMONIES: RITUALS FOR ALL SEASONS AND REASONS stems from these travels and blends three books under one cover: the fist outlining basic principles, the second following actual ceremonies and rites, and the third compiling full rituals for the eight seasonal festivals. An excellent guide embraces all new age ceremonial traditions.

Format: Paperback
Just a short note to give high, high recommendations for the book 'Creating Circles & Ceremonies: Rituals for All Seasons and Reasons' by Morning Glory and Oberon Zell-Ravenheart. This book is such a compendium of great information. From beginner to Pagan Clergy, this book has something for everyone. There are many little sections from other authors in the community, sprinkled throughout, but overall, the entire book is such a wealth of information one cannot quite comprehend how many different aspects of their practice it will affect. From the basic structures of ritual, to the many,many different examples and suggested invocations, and evocations..from the personal altar suggestions to the glossary of Gods and Goddesses, this is one book you should really have in your Pagan/Wiccan/Druid library. I would go as far as to even recommend this book to Clery of military and other public services, in the fact that there is so much inter-locking information, that also stands alone, it is almost mind boggling. I can say without a doubt, the sooner you check this book out, the sooner you will find your library more complete. Overall, I can't give this title a high enough rating.
