The Wizard and the Witch:
Seven Decades of Counterculture, Magick & Paganism
This is the stranger-than-fiction story of two soul mates who rejected the status quo and embraced higher ideals . . . and had a whole lot of fun while they were at it. Reclaiming Pagan as a spiritual identity—and living in an open marriage for over four decades—Oberon and Morning Glory Zell truly embody the freedom to think, to love, and to live.
Telling the stories of their singular lives in this unique oral history, Oberon and Morning Glory—together with a colorful tribe of friends, lovers, musicians, homesteaders, researchers, and ritualists—reveal how they established the Church of All Worlds, revitalized Goddess worship, discovered the Gaea Thesis, raised real Unicorns, connected a worldwide community through Green Egg magazine, searched for mermaids in the South Pacific, and founded the influential Grey School of Wizardry.
Join Morning Glory and Oberon as they share the highs and lows of their extraordinary lives, and explore the role they played in shaping the community of Witches and Pagans that thrives in the world today.
Includes a 16-page color photo insert.

Creating Circles & Ceremonies
By Oberon & Morning Glory Zell
Creating Circles and Ceremonies is the accumulation of decades
of circles, ceremonies, rituals, Mystery plays, initiations, rites of
passage, and other magickal workings co-created by the Zell-Ravenhearts,
today’s foremost Wizard/Witch couple.
more than 30 years, Oberon and Morning Glory have traveled widely
throughout the worldwide magickal community—participating in gatherings,
conducting workshops, and creating rituals for groups large and small.
They have met and made Magick with the leaders of many traditions:
Celtic Shamanism, British Dianic, Italian Strega, Welsh Witchcraft,
Faerie Trad, Ceremonial Magick, Ozark Druidry, the New Reformed Order of
the Golden Dawn (NROOGD), Hinduism, Native American tribes, Greek and
Egyptian mythology, and the futuristic Church of All Worlds. Here, in
one easy-to-read volume, is their collection of chants, invocations,
circle-castings, quarter-callings, spells, and ceremonies. It is also a
"kit" to use to assemble your own rituals, for any season or reason:
Book I presents a basic ritual outline. Each element is followed by
numerous examples which may be "plugged in" to customize your own
Book II gives numerous examples of actual ceremonies: Esbats
(full Moons) and special occasions; Rites of Passage; Mysteries and
Initiations; spells and consecrations. These can be adapted and modified
as needed for any size group—from small family gatherings in your
living room, to huge outdoor celebrations involving thousands of people.
Book III provides an assortment of full rituals and ritual elements for
celebrations of the eight great seasonal festivals called the Wheel of
the Year. Versions of these have been commemorated for millennia in most
traditional cultures of the Northern Hemisphere; and today are
universal throughout the worldwide Pagan community.

A Wizard's Bestiary
beasts of all kinds have crawled, run, swam, and flown through
humanity's imagination and travelers' tales since the dawn of time. From
Gryphons and Unicorns, to Dragons, Mermaids, and even more bizarre and
fantastical animals, A Wizard's Bestiary takes you on a magical journey
through the ages and around the world, to discover elusive creatures of
myth and legend. Beware--here be Monsters!
The first section lists over 1,000 fantastic creatures from
every land in an encyclopedic, alphabetical glossary format, from Aatxe
to Zyphoeus. Each entry includes a small illustration, as well as
cross-references to other related beasts.
Next, the authors present more in-depth features on some of
more interesting of these legendary beasts, such as the Sea Serpent and
the Man-Eating Tree of Madagascar. History, myths, and legends of each
creature are presented, with particular emphasis on identifying
real-life origins of mythical creatures in actual living animals, such
as the link between the Kraken and the giant squid.
Expanded cryptozoological entries include the Loch Ness
Monster, Bigfoot, Mokele-Mbembe, El Chupacabra, Mothman, and other
mystery monsters reported by eyewitnesses but not yet confirmed by
A Wizard's Bestiary is profusely illustrated with old woodcuts,
engravings, and other images from historical sources, as well as
interpretations by modern artists, including the authors. No other
bestiary has been so well-illustrated! Hand-drawn medieval-style maps by
Oberon Zell-Ravenheart show purported locales of different beasts on
all continents and seas.
