reading the book Mabon, I found a number of really
great ideas and practices that can be incorporated into the
practices we already have in my tradition's covens.
I particularly liked the numerous writings about the
different ways people and cultures around the world celebrate
this holiday. There are many recipes, craft and ritual ideas that speak to
my heart. They
will also give me much to work on for the upcoming Mabon celebration:
for the first time, our tradition is having an open,
public circle as well as a private circle for coven members
only, and the ideas in this book are helping me plan the public
you, Kristen, for a delightful book, one that I am certain
I am going to use heavily in the years to come.
