    This book is beautiful, both to look and and spiritually. Funny, sad, will run the gamut of emotions while looking through these pages. From the moment you open the book, which is set up in hand writting instead of book print, you feel you are a part of something wonderul. That something wonderful is the Feminist Spiritual Community of Portland Maine. In this book you will find ritual for the celebration of any number of life's passages; from baby blessing to grief and all its ecompassing conflicts. There are rituals to celebrate the seasons, personal milestones, and community. You are encouraged to take these rituals and fit tem into your own personal path. And then there is the (in)famous "April Fool's Ritual" which just has to be experienced to be believed (we used it at a bridal shower that will not soon be forgotten). This one will not be put away on a shelf, it will be used and abused and very, very much loved. And it deserves it.

    I liked the idea that this was a working women's group 'book of shadows', and for that reason, I can see why it would be more personal in it's hand-printed format, instead of standard book typeset font lettering. However, I really found the hand-printed effect pages ponderous to wade through and did pass the book along, mostly for that reason. It was kind of like reading something by SARK without the pretty watercolors. It did strike a responsive chord with me though, in that as women, we create blessings and ceremonies as part of our everyday live's sacred work, and it's extremely important that we write them down and pass them on as our legacy to the women who come after us.

    this book is a fabulous resource for women seekingceremony in their lives. there are rituals to cover the every-day life events, as well as the holidays like samhain and beltane. the book is handwritten by the women of the feminist spiritual community and gives the feel of many different personalities. the april fool's ritual is especially fun, and gives a good balance to the more poignant and serious rituals.

    I have used Keep Simple Ceremonies over and over again and have recommended it often to folks looking for rite-of-passage ritual. One of the best books I've seen on the topic.
