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.Read more ›
While the title says "Creating Circles and Ceremonies" it really doesn't tell you how to do this. It teaches by example, and consists of many wonderful rituals and ceremonies that help fuel your own creativity. It is a republication of three volumes he has published in the past, and the various authors have had a chance to freshen up their work prior to it being republished here.
I've enjoyed the other works published by Oberon and this volume is an excellent collection of ideas and usable rituals that would be a worthy addition to any pagans library.

Basically, hide-bound, stick-in-the-mud Wicca. I find it interesting in an historical sense, but the material is fussy and old-fashioned.Published 15 months ago by Jeanne Coats
