Publisher's Summary

We perform ceremonies to mark important events and celebrate holidays - yet our modern approach to ceremony only scratches the surface of its true potential. With The Book of Ceremony, shamanic teacher Sandra Ingerman presents a rich and practical resource for creating ceremonies filled with joy, purpose, and magic.

Weaving shamanic teachings together with stories, examples, and guiding insights, The Book of Ceremony explores the elements of a powerful ceremony - including setting strong intentions, choosing your space, preparing ceremonial items, and dealing gracefully with the unexpected. It also discusses key practices for leaving behind your everyday concerns and creating a space where magic can happen; the power of working with the elements, the natural world, ancestor spirits, and the creative energy of the divine; and much more.

The Book of Ceremony is more than a "how-to" guide - it will inspire you to create original ceremonies tailored to your own needs and the needs of your community. When you invoke the sacred power of ceremony, you tap into one of the oldest and most effective tools for transforming both yourself and the world. As Sandra writes, "If you perform one powerful and successful ceremony for yourself, the principle of oneness ensures that all of life heals and evolves."

I wish the author would have narrated it.

I really enjoyed the content. Having listened to several other of this author's books read by the author it was a little off-putting to have a different narrator. That detracted a little throughout as the narration felt a little flat, but other than that I would recommend it.

superb Foundation

if you're looking for an introductory book about shamanic ceremonies this is it.

it gives examples of a full variety of ceremonies and also gives you room for your own interpretation to create your own shamanic experience.
