What are CEREMONY + RITUALS?
We live in a universe of many cycles. There is the cycle of the day marked by sunset and sunrise, moonset and moonrise. The cycle of the seasons and the movement of the sun and the stars. The cycle of growth from seed to sprout to maturity, harvest and death. The cycle of the moon and the cycle of menstruation. The cycle of ages maiden – mother -crone and the 3 phases of the moon. These cycles are spirals that continue in an ever renewing and completing cycles of birth, growth, manifestation, death. This spiral is regenerative. It is a powerful song of celebration and continuity. It is an on-going rhythm of life. Coming into conscious relationship with these cycles and aligning to them is the role of rituals, and when many rituals are brought together, becomes a ceremony.
Ceremony and Ritual Connect Us to the Mystery and Magic of Goddess…
Join our VIRTUAL CEREMONY + RITUAL
We gather via Zoom LIVE to celebrate and mark seasonal or lunar cycles.
We light candles and ground and center at the beginning, becoming mindful of the energies that flow through us and around us. This is magic – to shift consciousness from the mundane to the sacred and remember that we are a part of an immense web of life. We align our internal rhythm with the greater rhythm of Earth and Cosmos.
Zoom link will be sent to you along with the preparation guidelines upon registration. All times are East Coast USA time. If you cannot attend at the time of the Zoom call, the recording will be sent to you after the ritual.
