Opening the Year Ceremony

Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create an Opening the Year ceremony by choosing from our library of curated rituals to acknowledge your unique experience.

What is an Opening the Year Ceremony?

An opening the year ceremony helps mark a new beginning. You can choose to do this at the start of a calendar year, the date of a birthday, or at the start of a new chapter. Our rituals are designed to help you welcome a new beginning with attention and intention.

Why is it Important?

As you prepare to open the year ahead, consider what the previous year brought with it and what you want to let go of. Reflect on the light and dark moments you experienced and think of an intention that captures what you want the year ahead to feel like. Like with all of our ceremonies, feel free to adjust or add your own rituals to make it your own!

How do I create an Opening the Year ceremony?

However you choose to acknowledge this time of transition, our app will guide you through the process. You can choose to create a ceremony on your own, with a friend, or as a group. You can even gift this experience to someone you care for.

With hundreds of universal rituals to choose from, our app offers something for everyone. Simply follow our ritual framework to create a ceremony unique to you.
