Product Description

Product Description

Pagan ritual, whether it is an act or worship or magic, employs a specific series of stages, using symbolism and ceremony, to create a sacred place and state of consciousness whereby the participants are put in touch with forces outside themselves – the Gods. Step by step, we weave together the disparate threads of time, place and people using the beliefs, words, symbols, movements and intent of those involved to make the ritual pattern, a pattern by which we “establish a link and cultivate a dialogue between the microcosm and the macrocosm”. Ritual is a two way exchange between the microcosm (us and through us, our world) and the macrocosm (the greater Cosmos and the powers of the Gods).
Anna Franklin shows you how to achieve the steps of ritual - the why of the ritual (its intent), the preparation, purification and consecration, the magical language of ritual (the symbolism and mythology) and the ability to achieve total concentration, able to focus your whole being on a single aim. The book explores the need to be able to relinquish your ego in order to become part of the group mind and effective group techniques of opening up the channels to the Gods, enabling the individuals within the group the skill to receive that energy.
The book then explains the Path of the initiate, what we call a priest or priestess, a person who is willing undertake the training, to persevere when faced with failure, and who is able to find within themselves deep reserves of self-discipline, application and learning.

I purchased this book. Because I wished to gain a bit more knowledge from a Priest/Priestess view, After reading through this book from time to time. I am very satisfied with Franklin's writing, straight to the point, simple and understandable. You are able to dive deeper into some aspects of Franklin's own Craft. I would warmly recommend this book to those who have passed the "101/beginner books" You are able to get some decent background information on the modern celtic/pagan festivals, Ritual ideas for aspiring Cowens or Covens. These rituals can also be adjusted to those are are solitary.
