Isaac Bonewits pours over three decades of ritual experience - creating, attending, and leading ceremonies as a Neopagan priest and magician - into this practical guide to effective ritual. Ideal for Earthcentered spiritual movements and other liberal religious traditions, this book clarifies how to design powerful rites for small groups or large crowds. Bonewits addresses every detail that contributes to successful public worship: the dynamics of participants, common worship patterns, the deities invoked, the risks of mixing spiritual traditions, pre-ritual preparation, and more. Learn to choose the optimal time, location, costume, props, and altar decorations. Enhance your ceremony with music, singing, poetry, dance, and movement. There are also invaluable tips for raising and channelling energy and using centres of power to send energy. Best of all, "Neopagan Rites" will help you create and perform rituals that unify, inspire, and fulfill their intended purpose.
