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.

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.

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.

This is a collection of the writings of Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and the people associated with him. So while the book is attributed to Oberon it is really a collective work.
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.

Wow what an awesome book. I always knew Circles could be more moving. This book will take your Circles and Ceremonies to a new high. On page 25 is a ritual in sonnet. It is so beautiful and moving. If boredom has entered your magic I highly recommend this book. I also highly recommend Wizard and Witch by Oberon and Morning Glory Zell. Both books will enrich your life. Create your own beautiful and moving Circles and make your Ceremonies and Rituals tingle with excitement and electricity. Thank you to Oberon and Morning Glory for sharing this fantastic book.

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.
