A ritual, as defined in the dictionary, is “a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order” but it can be so much more than that.
Some rituals are extremely important, long and complex. The rituals performed in ceremonial magick are quite intricate. They can involve speaking, song, dance as well as the order in which actions are performed.
There are simple rituals one can conduct. Greeting the sun as well as rituals to awaken magickal awareness like the Ritual of the Pentagram are good examples.
Maybe you have participated in a ritual and didn’t know it. Some rituals are simple – like taking a bath or reciting of traditional vows in a wedding.
