|Global Ritualism. Myth and Magic Around the World. Denny Sargent|
I'm enjoying "Global Ritualism: Myth and Magic Around the World" by Denny Sargent. More than a survey text, this book examines common threads within the rituals of various cultures. The intent is that practitioners might broaden their horizons to include a more eclectic mix of elements in their personal rituals, a mix that best suits their unique individual goals.
From Haiti to Egypt, this book analyzes the common themes and archetypal symbols of higher ritual so that readers can define how these archetypes play out in their own lives. It enables the construction of personal, living rituals and includes photographs of actual rituals from around the world.
