In the Service of Life expresses one Wiccan priestess' perspective on death. It's about how we feel about death, how we can understand it helpfully -- and what we can do to stay in control of the experience. Wicca teaches us that death is but a step in the spiral dance of life, and from the Adventure Tradition of Wicca, we teach that death is always going to be sad -- but it never has to be scary.

Book Description Citadel, 2003. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The only book available that addresses exclusively Wiccan approaches to death, In the Service of Life is a gentle and straightforward meditation on mortality, death, and the afterlife. The attitudes reflected here honor the Pagan respect for the whole of life, of which death is simply another aspect. Blending common sense, Wiccan theology, experience, and compassion, here is a unique exploration of one of society's last taboo subjects.Addressing both spiritual and physical concerns, Ashleen O'Gaea provides thoughtful and thorough advice on a variety of topics from theology and ritual to spells and thoughts on reincarnation. Readers will explore such rituals as Affirmation of the Flowers, Rituals for a Child's Death, Sparkler Ritual, and Poems and Songs. The practical side of death and dying includes explanations on the Hospital Ritual, how to handle funeral arrangements, and even what to do in the event of a suicide.This seminal -- and comforting -- book combines the compassion of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross with the sensibilities of the Pagan religion to teach readers how to cope with losses, both old and new, and how to find hope for the future.-- Includes a glossary and bibliography and an introduction to Wicca. 240315 Elizabeth's Bookshops have been one of Australia's premier independent book dealers since 1973.
