"Little Ceremonies for BIG mysteries! This book will take you on a self-exploration of life. Life Ritualized is raw, touching, sensitive, and inspiring, the authors have a deep understanding of the magick of being human. Grounded in history but with a refreshingly honest acceptance of the modernity of neopaganism it explores the milestones and age old rites of passage that so often give our lives depth and meaning. Regardless of your path, this brilliant book provides you with fully inclusive and meaningful rituals for any occasion."—Tara Sanchez, author of Urban Faery Magick: Connecting to the Fae in the Modern World
"In so many ways, this book fills a critical need in writing on modern witchcraft. LeFae and Raven have crafted an extraordinary labor of love in honor of rituals; this nuanced work explores the sacred nature of ritual for some of life’s—and death’s—most transformative and sacred moments. Few other books on witchcraft have ever left me feeling so profoundly seen, inspired, and empowered. It is easily one of the best new works in the last decade."—Elliot Director, author and witch
