Rituals are traditionally associated with religion or spirituality, but they can be crafted by anyone to intentionally make something sacred, keep a memory alive, or just protect time in your day for you.
It’s possible to construct your own completely unique rituals that enrich and add meaning to your life – no matter what your beliefs are.
Rituals can be as simple as designing a bed time routine, to something more complex like the creation of an altar.
Crafting rituals is a hugely personal creative practice and we invite you to come with an open mind and an idea of what you would like to deliberately carve out space for – whether that be health, family, abundance, ancestors, general happiness, or anything else that matters to you.
What will we cover?
In this class we will:
- Explore the philosophy and science behind the compelling reasons why people benefit from creating their own secular (or non-religious) rituals
- Discuss different forms of rituals
- Brainstorm what your individual ritual might look like and honour
You’ll end the class with a blueprint of an entirely personal ritual practice you can start immediately.
What will you need?
- Bring something to scribble and draw on – that’s it!
- You might also bring a tablet or phone to search for images that resonate with you.
