Why Ceremony?

Ceremony helps us move through moments of change and times of transition with intention and meaning. It’s a way to express what we’re holding and feeling in a safe container. 

What is ritual and ceremony?

A ritual is an intentional action that helps us create meaning. It’s how we express what we’re holding, usually through a sensory experience. It connects us to ourselves, to each other, and to the world around us.  

A ceremony is a series of rituals strung together to help us release the past, accept the present, and set intentions for the future. If ceremony is the cooking pot, then rituals are the ingredients.

The power of ceremony

There are many types and styles of ceremonies. You can create a solo ceremony, where you focus on your own self care. You can create a partner ceremony, where you connect with one other person in a ceremonial setting. You can create a group ceremony, supporting the health and wellness of your community. Or you can create a virtual ceremony, bringing people together from afar and helping them connect beyond the screen. 

There are many ways ritual and ceremony can support us: 

Self Care

Rituals help us acknowledge all of the emotions we feel, helping us find balance within ourselves so we can then care for others.

Community Care

Ritual connects us with ourselves, with each other, and with the world around us by giving us a universal language to draw from.

Mental Wellness

Rituals help us address our health and wellness in a more holistic way, taking into consideration our mental, spiritual, and emotional wellness.

Legacy Keeping

Ceremonies create an opportunity for our legacy stories to be voiced, shared, and carried forward with intention and ease.
