Banyen's Description: 

The Circle of Eight is a grounded magical system for developing powerful, healing rituals based on your relationship with the land. With ritualist Jane Meredith, you can process and incorporate the unique conditions of your location—the climate and seasons, flora and fauna, the manifestation of elements, and other important aspects of place. Through explorations of mythic work, invocations, inner discovery, and relationships within magical circles, this book provides much-needed insight into the experience of local magic—whether you live in a rainforest, a city, or anywhere in between.

With instructions for setting up your own Circle of Eight, Jane Meredith’s unique approach will radically reinvent your relationship with traditional circle magic. Suitable for beginners, advanced ritualists, groups, and solo practitioners, this book helps you step boldly into the powerful magic of place and the great Wheel of the Year.

I’ve written this book to inspire and encourage you to take the circle of Eight for your own, to engage as deeply as you can in local magic; to learn from this system and grow it in your own directions. I’ve written it because I deeply believe that local magic is the real Paganism and the global magic stems not from everyone doing the same things in the same way regardless of local conditions or where they are, but rather from everyone working magic and ritual consciously in concert with their own place while honoring the whole earth.

“I love Jane Meredith’s focus on local magic… She’s a true originator of approaches to magic and spirit that can inspire us in these times.” —Starhawk

“Circle of Eight provides real, heartfelt, and practical methods of living our spirituality, of reminding us what our Paganism truly means, while keeping open and inspired by the lessons around us.” —Cat Treadwell, Druid priest and author of Facing the Darkness
