The Art and Magic of Ritual and Ceremony
I am a big believer in the art & magic of ritual & ceremony. I love to cherish the very simple day-to-day ritual just as much as the celebration of life's big milestones.
If you have ever tried to cut coffee out of your life you will notice that the thing you miss most of all is the ritual of it right? One of the most wonderful gifts we can give to ourselves is to create daily ritual in our lives. And sometimes it's as simple as tweaking our way of thinking. Turning a "chore" into a ritual can make it fun or relaxing, like a moving meditation - instead of something we dread.
Then there are the seasonal rituals we participate in and look forward to with sweet anticipation; a pilgrimage to see the bluebells in May, the first beach outing of the summer, the first roasted veggies & pumpkin soup of autumn, and lighitng candles to honour the shortest day of the year... it is rare to find a person who doesn't find joy in these kind of mini ceremonies.
And then we have the important big milestones,those life events that are worthy of being observed in a way that is meaningful to you - birth, first tooth, learning to walk & talk, going to school, entering puberty, bar and bat mitzvas, learning to drive, graduating high school & college, getting married, menopause,retirement, death. Life's cycles.
I love to work with clients for all kinds of rituals, from the very small to the very big. If you are looking to tweak your daily life to reduce stress & feel better, it might be a matter of including some small &sweet daily rituals and I would love to help you navigate this. Please reach out to make an appointment.
