Ideas for my ritual....
« on: September 05, 2009, 10:55:42 AM »

Ok...here are some Ideas I have for the Open Ritual my Coven is hosting (I have to be High Priestess during this one).  Let me know what you think of if you have any other Ideas!

we will start the ritual as usual  (Cleansing space, casting circle,quarter calls, lord/lady)

Then we will give a brief history of the Sabbat and I will do an interactive story with the coven members on the story of Demeter and Persephone.

Then after that, we will all take turns (i will start it) and give thanks for the things that have come to harvest in our own lives.

Then we will end the ritual as usual and have a "thanksgiving" potluck to follow.

That sounds great, Amber.  I want to go too!

If you can get a bundle of wheat, it would be a really fun energy-raising activity after the story of Demeter and Persephone to have the other members walk around the circle to take a few shafts of wheat from each corner and then place those shafts on the altar when they give thanks for their harvest.

Any farms near you?  Or a florist or Michael's for decorative wheat.  Or you could even use flour, ground wheat.  Or some other symbol of fall harvest, doesn't have to be wheat.

Edited to fix typo.

Around here, it would be corn. We don't raise wheat in Tennessee.

You may check around at the local apple orchards.  I know several in this area tend to carry several of those types of things.  If you can't find the wheat, the corn stalks could work in the same way, just being a lot larger.  Heck, you can even use apples if you wanted to.
