There are eight seasonal festivals (referred to as sabbats) that make up the ""Wheel of the Year"". ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" draws on the author's own personal experience of following a traditional Pagan spiritual path and creating ritual over 20 years in southern Australia. Combining traditional Pagan lore with history in order to develop a relationship with her local environment, the author also offers invaluable pointers as to how to incorporate the localised elements into something that also provides a ?traditional? feel. ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" not only provides an in-depth look the folklore and myth associated with each sabbat, but also discusses ways of creating specific rituals and observances that acknowledge each seasonal ?gateway? when the local environment is reflecting something completely different. ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" challenges the reader, regardless of which hemisphere they reside, to draw inspiration from their environment, and to create their own unique Wheel of the Year.

"Until around 10,000 B.C. art in Europe appears to have been in advance of the rest of the world, and throws a valuable if intermittent, light on the total history of early man. The great masterpieces of cave-painting at Lascaux are well known, and one tradition of early sculpture is from the first surprisingly classical. With the shelter paintings of the Spanish Levant and the clay modelling and painted pottery of eastern Europe in the fourth and third millennia B.C. fresh artistic problems were tackled. Later still evolved the high technical accomplishment of the metal-workers, and this masterly study concludes with an account of the original and exciting new departures of Celtic La Tene art of the last four centuries B.C."--BOOK COVER.
