From the authors of A Wound in Time, this new volume of modern Pagan prayers turns attention to the planet, to the five elements – Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit – and to the elementals – the gnomes, sylphs, salamanders and undines.


Giving the elements a voice and an opportunity to speak for the planet, the pieces tackle global and individual issues relevant today. Their mindful approach fosters a deeper appreciation of the natural world and of our role in its welfare.

Twenty seven prayers, blessings and other devotional pieces that deal with global and individual concerns in the twenty-first century. The collection challenges you to a greater recognition of the presence of the elements and inspires gratitude and celebration of the role they play in your life and in the world around you.

Working with the pieces included here, you can develop a deeper connection to the planet and the beings who share it. Let yourself be taken beyond your own concerns to find your place within a larger context.

Using the techniques of poetry and rhetoric, and drawing from a wide religious heritage and tradition, Lucía and Gwyneth write with simplicity, sincerity and a light touch of humour. Neopagan in origin, and suitable for all modern-day Pagans, including Druids, Pantheists, Polytheists, Wiccans, and Devotees of the Goddess, many of the pieces will also appeal to environmentalists, ecopoets and mindfulness practitioners.
