Ritual List

If you have a ritual (copyright free) you would like me to add, please email me using the email address at the bottom of the page. Remember rituals are a personal thing and you modify and personalise as you please. There is often a basic structure to blots and wiccan rituals, by looking at different examples you can come to understand how they are often performed. There are no ways you have to follow though, if incorporating magic it is best to have a good understanding of ritual before inventing your own.

Many thanks to Josquin (http://home.earthlink.net/~josquin88/rites.html) for allowing me to add a number of his wiccan rituals. Individual credits are at the bottom of each ritual.
