In order to give her family and friends a deep experience of earth-based spirituality, author Jane Meredith holds eight rituals per year, celebrating the solstices, the equinoxes, and the cross-quarter festivals. Rituals of Celebration provides accounts of the most memorable rituals she's organized, as well as how-to instructions for creating the rituals. Discover the deeper themes of each festival as Meredith offers meaningful reflections about Imbolc, Beltaine, Samhain, and the changing of the seasons as they correspond to personal growth and challenges. Create the craft projects that go along with each ritual - perfect ideas for artistic expression whether you are practicing alone, with a group, or celebrating with children
Honouring differences of place and spirit, the rituals are inspired by Pagan, Druid, and Goddess traditions, and a variety of other perspectives. Beginners will learn how to construct altars, invoke deities, and perform basic tasks, while experienced ritual organizers will learn new techniques for planning meaningful rituals in challenging or unexpected circumstances.
