Core Order of Ritual Breakdown: Thanking the Kindreds

The Core Order of Ritual is something that I utilize regularly in my practice, so I feel like it's important to dive into that ritual structure a little bit and share my understanding of each part, as well as giving an example of what that part of the ritual might look like. Today we start to wind down our ritual by Thanking the Beings.


Earlier in our ritual, we called to the Being of Occasion and the Three Kindred, asking them to join us in our celebration and be with us in our sacred space. As we near the end of our ritual, we once again reach out to those beings to thank them for participating in our rite and for the gifts that their presence has brought to us.


Grey-eyed Athena, strong and wise,

Thank you for joining me by my sacred fire,

And for granting us gifts wit and skill.


Shining Ones, deities of my hearth,

Thank you for joining me by my sacred fire,

And for granting us inspiration and guidance.


Nature Spirits, creatures of fur, feather, and scales,

Thank you for joining me by my sacred fire,

And for granting us sustenance and companionship.


Ancestors, loved ones of heart, mind, and blood,

Thank you for joining me by my sacred fire,

And for granting us your knowledge and love.


Thank you to all we have welcomed into this sacred space,

May our paths forever be peaceful, positive, and hospitable.
