The Woven Word
I was honoured to be asked to endorse a book recently - The Woven Word by Romany Rivers.
The book is available now for pre-order from Amazon and due to be published on 31st October 2014.
A fascinating book celebrating and utilizing the power of the word both spoken and written within all areas of the Craft, including beautiful prose, blessings, meditations, visualizations and invocations. A great reference for how to use words for the greatest benefit.
The official blurb:
This is a pagan tome of poetry and prose designed for rituals, festivals and celebrations. Working with deities, Romany has chronicled invocations and evocations for many Gods and Goddesses, and created clear and crafty quarter calls, circle castings, celebratory prose and meditations. Ritual is broken into its component parts allowing for easy reference and personal adaptation, and the additional correspondences information benefits the creation of unique rituals and celebrations. Created for use by both solitary practitioners and covens, sample rituals are also provided for seasonal celebrations and life events. Romany’s personal experiences as a High Priestess give this book an enlightened view of the use of poetry in ritual, whilst her skills in classes, courses and workshops create a solid, practical foundation. Pagans, Priests and Priestesses, initiates new to the Craft, RE teachers and students, and anyone who loves Romany’s poetry will thoroughly enjoy this latest work.
