Revised and rewritten with some great new illustrations this is a much-loved best selling book.
It is for anyone wishing to celebrate the changing rhythms and seasons of the Earth and her cycles.

"A beautiful little guide to what to do to celebrate the four major solar festivals as well as the four cross-quarter days of the year. Glennie explains the underlying energy of each festival with great insight and gives suggestions of different ceremonies and meditations that can be carried out to mark each turning point whether you are in a group or alone. If you haven't seen one of Glennie's books before you are in for a pleasant surprise, they are beautiful. Each one is entirely handwritten , in luscious colour, simply bound, and illustrated throughout with her wonderful drawings. The best part about them though is Glennie herself, whose voice permeates the text with gentle wisdom, deep intuition and encouragement to affirm your own connectedness to Nature." - Walnut Books
