Bidding the Elements Farewell

Once you are finished, it is time to bid farewell to the elements. To do this, begin at the North and say:
“Generous powers of Earth, depart in peace.
Many thanks for your presence.”

Then face East, and say:
“Generous powers of Air, depart in peace.
Many thanks for your presence.”

Next, turn to the South, and say:
“Generous powers of Fire, depart in peace.
Many thanks for your presence.”

Then face West, and say:
“Generous powers of Water, depart in peace.
Many thanks for your presence.”
