Ceremonies of the Seasons
Exploring and Celebrating Nature's Eternal CycleBook - 2007
Nature lovers will delight in this opulent handbook and its unique blend of ritual, meditation, and symbolism. Superimposing the solstices and equinoxes on the landmark events in the farmer's year, it divides the calendar into eight ancient seasonal segments: each segment features an image of the relevant sector of the Wheel of the Year, annotated with insight into key dates and festivals such as Easter or All Souls' Night. Throughout, we get background on symbols, myths, and ceremonies from across the globe, along with suggestions for how we, too, can celebrate that phase of the natural cycle. Rich in artwork to savor and use, this year-long companion presents an enjoyable program of exercises and ideas for making a brief escape from the pressures of modern life.
