Elements Chants

Here are a bunch of our favorite elemental chants - from Reclaiming albums, Beverly Frederick, and the renowned Aleister Crowley Memorial Incantatory Campfire Choir!

​Many of the chants listed under a particular element can also be used in other ways - Born of Water could be used for a purification, or We Are the Rising Sun for a spiral dance, etc. 

These links are to short audio files. A playlist with full versions of many of these chants on our playlists page (see Elements playlist and Favorite Chants playlist):
