Decent and Return Download

Welcome to the 2022-23 season of dark renewal and light tending constellated around the Winter Solstice on December 21st.

This overview booklet gives you an idea of the whole flow of the ritual as designed to fit into any year as well as guidance for how to prepare to participate. If you are the type of person who likes to see the big picture, you can read through the booklet before the seasonal observance begins. If you’d rather go with the flow as we move through the ritual, no need to read every page as the daily e-mails can guide you through the process. It would be beneficial for everyone to look at The Ritual and its Elements on pp. 7-10 as you will want to gather some ritual objects to make your candle wheel before the first invitation to ritual / weekly session on November 27th.
