Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats|
Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats
Author: Frances Billinghurst [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: TDM Publishing
Category: Sabbats, Southern Hemisphere, Pagan/Wicc Level: All
"Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats" is a book about the sabbats, the eight seasonal observances (the "Wheel of the Year") that are central to many modern Pagan traditions.
While many books available to this topic are written from the Northern Hemisphere point of view (where most of the sabbat associated folklore and mythology originated) , "Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats" includes personal insight as to how this can be done from a Southern Hemispheric perspective.
However, this is not a book strictly for Southern Hemispheric Pagans. It is for anyone whose own local seasonal Wheel does not fit into the "traditional" one.
"Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats" provides indepth information about the history and folklore as well as associated mythology with respect to each sabbat. It also provides snippets of rituals actually performed by the author (solitary as well as with her coven) , seasonal recipes, craft ideas and correspondences connected with each turning of the Wheel.
The author also sets the challenge to each reader, regardless of which hemisphere they reside, to reconnect with their local environment as an invaluable tool in gaining a deeper understanding of the "Wheel of the Year".
