The Keys to Successful Public Rituals

Neopagan Rites: A Guide to Creating Public Rituals that Work

Author: Isaac Bonewits [a Witchvox Sponsor]

Publisher: Llewellyn Worldwide

Category: Liturgical design, prep & performance   Level: All

This is an updated and expanded edition of the author's "Rites of Worship," an essential source book for creating and conducting public ceremonies and worship services in the Neopagan style. This much-needed guide is rich with the author’s forty years of experience as a ritual leader, served up with the inimitable Bonewits style and wit. Whether your group is large or small—or whatever religious tradition you practice—you’ll find this volume filled with indispensable how-to (and, perhaps more importantly, how-NOT-to!) tips of value to both the aspiring and seasoned practitioner alike.

Here’s a book that Pagan, Unitarian Universalist, and New Age ritualists of all persuasions need: a detailed text on the design, preparation, and performance of public worship rituals, written by the Neopagan movement’s most (in-)famous priest. Bonewits delves into the nitty-gritty details of what works and what doesn’t in public ceremony, all while providing a sound polytheological basis for Neopagan worship.

Isaac Bonewits is North America’s leading expert on ancient and modern Druidism, Witchcraft, and the rapidly growing Earth Religions movement. A practicing Neopagan priest, he has led public rituals in the Berkeley, California hills, in Unitarian Universalist chapels and gardens, at the American Stonehenge during a total eclipse of the sun, and at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, with groups ranging from dozens to thousands of participants. There are few Neopagan priests or priestesses with his range of experience in creating, preparing and performing public worship rituals—and none who have written about the topic to this depth.

This is the required textbook for Bonewits' well-received weekend seminars and week-long intensives on this essential topic (info on these can be found at the author's website) .

Author's Notes: I put everything important that I know about this topic into this book, one I've been working on for over twenty years. It's the first of what I hope will be a series for my colleagues on effective ritual techniques. This edition includes important materials on the use of music and poetry in public ritual, as well as expansions of important topics such as the safe use of fire.

Where To Buy: Anywhere Pagan or New Age books are found: local metaphysical shops, major book chain stores,, and other online booksellers.
