It has taken a while (some eight years actually) but just over a week ago, I announced that I would start to take pre-orders for Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats. In this short time I have been extremely humbled by the number of people who have showed their support for this book by doing just this.
As it is, I am in the final stages of "twigging" whilst the interior design has mostly been completed. Shortly the cover will also be completed and by the end of this month, I should actually have in my hands a proof copy.
Considering the amount of time that I have devoted to this project, especially in the last 18 months in an attempt to get it finished, naturally I am extremely excited.
Tradition is important to me, or at least understanding the "essence" (foundation) of a tradition, but so too is being in synch with your own local environment. In Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through Southern Sabbats I have attempted to do just this in outlining the hows and whys certain "traditional" aspects of the seasonal rites that I have undertaken over the years are still continued with, or have actually been replaced (depending on the circumstance and situation).
More information about Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through Southern Sabbats can be found on the Temple of the Dark Moon's web site.
