Heartbeat of the Seasons: Earth Rituals for the Celtic Year.


    The rituals in this book aim to celebrate and deepen our awareness of the heartbeat of the Eternal One pulsating throughout creation. The rituals revolve around the rhythms of the seasons and their turnings. They are, for the most part, celebratory in nature. However, some rituals introduce an element of lament or caoineadh for the harm we, humans, are inflicting on our planetary home. We are invited to hear the cry of the earth, to envision a healed world, and to join others in the work of restoring health to the earth, our home. The rituals are suitable for groups interested in celebrating the cycle of the seasons, and in deepening their connection to the earth, and many of them can be easily adapted for individual use. Almost all of the rituals can be celebrated in the home. They are all suitable for senior classes in Post Primary Schools. Each ritual follows a similar pattern with suggested chants, prayers, blessings, activity, and sometimes movement/dance. The format offers a variety of resource material, including 29 chants for which the music is given in the book and also on a CD along with the book.
