Whether you're designing a group ritual for five people or five hundred, Taking Sacred Back will help you make it moving and memorable. Join authors Nels Linde and Judy Olson-Linde as they explore creative ideas for all the stages of ritual--making the space sacred, entering into the liminal, engaging the subconscious of all attendees, creating awe and wonder, raising and directing energy, and ending the ritual. Discover advice on hardware and prop-making (and tips on using props effectively) and ideas for scaling up or scaling down for larger or smaller groups. Complete with photos and diagrams, examples of rituals the authors have conducted, and wise problem-solving advice, Taking Sacred Back is an indispensable guide for all ritualists.
