Depression is a universal condition that people of all walks of life face. Author Terence P Ward shares his experiences with depression and the spiritual methods he has used to cope. With contributions from Pagan clergy, depression sufferers, and therapists, Ward offers hands-on rituals, prayers, and exercises for readers to practice on their own journey.
This book explores the isolating influence of this common affliction and why many people resist professional help. Empty Cauldrons shows readers how to tend to their life of prayers, offerings, and dreams, and also provides spells and strategies for developing a non-monotheistic relationship with depression. You will discover rituals for drawing off miasma and appealing to the gods of the wind, traditional Hellenic ancestor feasts, ideas for tending a depression shrine, and much more.
