Witchcraft is a joyous celebration of nature: of the seasons, of earth,
fire, air, water, and spirit; of the waxing and waning moon and the fiery
sun; of the life force manifesting as the Goddess and God. For those
starting out on the Wiccan path, the time eventually comes when you want to
delve deeper than an introductory text can take you. How can you be sure you
are "doing it right?" What if you make mistakes? And what about the snippets
of knowledge that come through experience?
The Sacred Round takes you to the next level of spiritual development and
magical prowess with the kind of information you get in a coven or from a
teacher. Within the pages of this book, you will find instruction on:
- seasonal rites
- the chakras
Written by a practicing witch with many years of experience both living and
teaching the Craft, The Sacred Round gives a unique view of both solitary
practice, and the way a coven or group can interact to create powerful
rituals and magical work. You'll learn some of Elen Hawke's own spells, plus
the basic framework of many of the rituals she and her coven use at the
eight festivals in Britain.
Whether you are a novice witch or a more experienced practitioner wanting to
learn more, you will be encouraged and empowered by Craft Elder Elen Hawke's
easy-to-follow yet meaningful teaching, while being moved by the beautiful
and descriptive language. This guide to the Craft gives you the means to
explore further, building a solid foundation for your own life as a witch.
