Planning Special Rituals


By John Beckett

I’ve always loved ritual.  The opportunity to compose, lead, and participate in ritual is one of my favorite things about being Pagan.  So it’s no surprise I write about ritual a lot – here are some of my favorite pieces: A Pagan Ritual Outline Common Ritual Errors and How to Avoid Them The Challenges of Large Public Rituals Last week I saw a request for help on a child naming ceremony.  Then earlier this week I responded to a Facebook request for suggestions on composing a ritual for a CUUPS group to mark its passage through some difficult times and to recommit themselves to their community and their values.  And it occurred to me that most of what’s out there on ritual composition deals with seasonal rites of worship and celebration.  There’s not much on rituals for special occasions.  I have this piece on Composing Initiation Rituals, but that’s about it. – See more at:
