It's Halloween and Eve is stuck babysitting her little sister's sleepover. When she tries to prevent the girls from performing a magical ceremony, the last thing she expects is to find herself trapped in the Underworld. Not only that, but she is apparently there as a date for The Lord of the Dead. The fact that he's hotter than Hades makes no difference to Eve - she knows she must resist his dark charms or she'll never make it back to school on Monday morning.

Filled with Halloween folklore, this short story is a modern take on the Hades and Persephone Myth

A book of recipes, spells, and rituals for celebrating our connection to the Earth and her seasons.

• Redesigned to focus on all eight pagan holidays.

• Includes new spells, rituals, and meditations, as well as 80 vegetarian recipes.

• Written by practicing witch Cait Johnson, coauthor of Celebrating the Great Mother (12,000 copies sold).

The beliefs of Wicca are rooted firmly in the earth--in the gradual circling of her seasons and the bounty and blessings she provides. In Witch in the Kitchen: Magical Cooking for All Seasons, practicing witch Cait Johnson celebrates the sacred in each season with more than 80 soul-satisfying and appetizing recipes. In engaging and inviting prose, the author provides rituals, spells, and meditations for the eight pagan holidays, inspirations for creating a kitchen altar, and ways to prepare for each season. She offers ideas for decorating your kitchen with objects of power and magic--eggs symbolizing fertility in spring, dried orange slices as reminders of the sun in mid-winter--to align our bodies, spirits, and senses to the pace and mood of the Earth's changes. Above all are the recipes for delicious, sensuous salads, soups, main dishes, and desserts made from ingredients in tune with the Earth's seasonal gifts. Serve Stuffed Acorn Squash and Fig-Apple Crumble at a Samhain gathering; celebrate Winter Solstice with Pomander Salad and Savory Yuletide Pie; welcome Imbolc with Sprouted Spring Salad and Magic Isle Pasties; or share the harvest at Lughnasad with Spicy Stir-Fried Greens and Sunny Peach Pie. With its recipes, rituals, and reminders of our ancient connections to the seasons, Witch in the Kitchen invites you to honor yourself and the Earth and delight in the magic that comes from sharing good food with good company.

Celtic Wheel Of The Year

The Celtic Wheel of the Year is a yearly round of celebrations based upon the cycle of the sun as seen in the northern hemisphere. It includes the summer and winter solstices, the spring and fall equinoxes and the four cross-quarter days which fall-half way in between them. Although not unique to the Celtic tradition, these ancient celebrations are best known in the western world through remnants of the Celtic culture (i.e. artifacts, stories, songs, inscriptions, extant practices, historical records, and archaeological evidence).

The Twentieth Century revival of paganism has brought together these existing tidbits of information into a basic body of knowledge from which new traditions and ceremonies are being created. At the same time, much information about non-western traditions has also become widely available. Seen side by side there are countless parallels and concurrences. It isn’t surprising that people would begin to incorporate elements from other cultures and eras into the creation of new rituals and traditions.

Few if any 1st Century CE Celts would recognize the words and practices of even the ‘purist’ practitioners of the Old Religion. Nevertheless, these ceremonies grow out of the changing of the seasons. They acknowledge seasonal differences in light, weather and temperature that are the same today as they were millennia ago. The moods and feelings associated with the yearly cycle of the sun are as familiar to our bodies as they were to the Picts or Brigantes. While they might not recognize the words or actions of our rites, they would certainly understand why we performed them.

This book grew out of my participation in a study group envisioned and conducted by Sharyn McDonald. Sixteen times a year she called together a group of twenty men and women to study and celebrate the ancient holy days. On study days we gathered to compare and discuss the research we had done on the upcoming holiday. Taking the elements which most resonated and appealed to us, we devised a ritual to celebrate the season. On the holy days we performed the rituals we created.

The rituals are based on a particular format which involves the casting of a circle, the honoring of the directions, the invocation of deities, experiential work which grounds the rite in personal experience and a celebration which reenacts, in some form, a creation myth.

Although I had been present at and had helped to create rituals in other contexts, Sharyn’s group tied me to the great cycle of seasons in a way I had never before experienced. Gradually I began to see the eight days of the Wheel as a metaphor for my life. As I grew more conscious of how deeply I resonated, body and soul, with these celebrations, I came to see that I had it backwards. It is my life that is the metaphor for the Wheel.

The book is divided into eight sections: Samhain (pronounced sow-un), Yule (winter solstice), Imbolc, Ostara (spring equinox), Beltane, Mid-summer (summer solstice), Lughnasadh, and Mabon (fall equinox). I use art and poetry to convey a feeling of their meaning and tell some of the old stories associated with them.

I included the recipes for a feast with every ritual because it is usual to end these celebrations with a sharing of food. Food and hospitality were terribly important to the Celts. It is a part of my own Celtic heritage which has survived intact

Finally there are the essays which tie some of the events of my life to the Wheel. The Goddess Brigit inspired this book. She is a goddess of poetry and healing. Re-examining my life caused me to recall things I had forgotten or pushed aside. I began to re-member; to bring back and put into place those misplaced parts of myself. I feel that my own interior landscape now forms a more complete circle, a less wobbly wheel.

Blessed Be

The creators of the New York Times best-selling Encyclopedia Prehistorica series offer a mythic look at the mysteries of the past with an entire pantheon of remarkable pop-ups.

For all of recorded history, humans have sought to understand Earth’s mysteries in the realm of the divine — and aspired to conduct themselves as heroes.

In this stunning volume, the incomparable team of Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda take us to Ra-Atum’s land in Ancient Egypt; above the Grecian clouds to Zeus’s Mount Olympus; up to Norse god Odin’s frozen north; to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor sits in the heavens; into the wilds of Oceania, where Pele’s volcanic rage simmers below the earth; and to many more lands and times, all rich with sacred myths and legends.
