Editorial Reviews

Review

Beck and Metrick remind us that human beings have used ritual for centuries as an important buffer to change, and as a way of consciously recognizing and supporting a life event rather than denying or indulging in it. The end result of all ritual is increased balance, strength, energy, and comfort. This is an important book whose time has come. -Angeles Arrien, from the Foreword --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
There are lots of book out there that give you pre-created Rits and ideas but this book goes even further. This book delves in to why, why are rituals important? When should we have one? and how to create your own. Magic is deeply personal, symbolism works because we have all agreed that certain things symbolize other things. I have found it much more fulfilling to look inside to find my Symbols and then my focus and intent is natural not learned. This is not to say agreed upon symbols are less potent but that you should be able to decide that for yourself ad be given permission to create your own magic. -Bethany

I saw this book at the book store several times before buying it, and boy was I glad I bought it.

The book goes through all the steps to have a successful ritual and brings to light why rituals are needed in our modern society.

Very recommended.
