Rituals and Practices
A common question in the modern Pagan world (we Hellenes are not immune to it!) is one of ritual. Which rituals are appropriate for large groups, for small groups, for solitary practitioners? What about rituals and implements specific to certain deities? It is our hope to provide rituals written or researched by modern practitioners of Polytheistic Hellenism with details and introductions provided by the authors. We hope this will inspire you to share with us your personal rituals and practices.
