Original Title: Seasons Of The WitchListen to the Voices of Goddesses With poetry and prose, litany and song, Seasons of the Witch measures the turning of a year, the cycles of the natural world, and the seasons of a woman's life. Lyrical and literate, much- loved and sought-after, the award-winning Seasons of the Witch is back in print. Written by Patricia Monaghan, one of the founding mothers of the women's spirituality movement, the original version of this classic book received the Friends of Literature award for poetry. Its poems and music are frequently used in both private and public rituals, and the poem "Burials" was selected as the invocation for the Worldwide Goddess 2000 Project. This edition features twenty-eight pieces of prose and poetry for each of the four seasons. While the original drew heavily from Greek mythology, this revised and expanded edition includes many new pieces from Celtic mythology. Each section features a song for the goddess of light, a litany for the associated elemental creature, poems inspired by tarot cards, and love spells in the ancient poetic form of the charm. A four-part Goddess Instruction Manual is woven throughout the book, with lessons drawn from each season. Twenty-five of the poems have been set to music in an evocative and powerful CD that accompanies this book.
