Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In 1979 Starhawk's The Spiral Dance introduced men and women to a spirituality based on a deeply felt appreciation of the planet Earth, which is the Goddess. Now Starhawk, along with Diane Baker and Anne Hill, shows a way to pass this wisdom on to children.

"Circle Round" presents the Goddess tradition in eight nature-based holidays, in rites of passage, and in celebrations of the elements of fire, air, water, earth, and spirit. Crafted with a parent's limited free time in mind, the book offers songs and rituals, craft and cooking ideas, family-oriented activities and read-aloud stories -- all easily adaptable to fit your own faith or worldview. This is a book to bring home, a practical and wisdom-filled guide toward finding a place for spirituality in family life.

Book description

In our rushed, stressed society, it's sometimes difficult to spend meaningful time as a family. Now Starhawk, Diane Baker, and Anne Hill offer new ways to foster a sense of togetherness through celebrations that honor the sacredness of life and our Mother Earth.

Goddess tradition embraces the wheel of life, the never-ending cycle of birth, growth, love, fulfillment, and death. Each turn of the wheel is presented here, in eight holidays spanning the changing seasons, in rites of passage for life transitions, and in the elements of fire, air, water, earth, and spirit. Circle Round is rich with songs, rituals, craft and cooking projects, and read-aloud stories, as well as suggestions for how you can create your own unique family traditions. Here are just some of the ways to make each event in the cycle of life more special:

Mark Summer Solstice by making sweet-smelling herb pillows for good dreams

Send a teenager off to college with the Leaving Behind and Carrying With rituals

Comfort an injured child with the Tree of Life meditation

Commemorate a loved one by planting or donating a tree

As a one-of-a-kind resource for people of many faiths and beliefs, Circle Round will be a beloved companion in your home for years to come.
