Welcome to the final day of our weeklong practice.
“This is the time to fly, to create, to investigate, to listen, to invent together.” ~ Bayo Akomolafe
When asked about the most important rituals of our lives, many of us respond first by naming those rituals that celebrate our connection to one another, that are carried out in community. We have an innate understanding of ritual’s extraordinary power to lift us beyond our individual selves and into the energy of the collective. On this last day of the practice, we invite you to tend your most treasured communal ritual. This may call forth a recommitment to a long-held practice or it may inspire the creation of something new. As a global community, we have arrived at the one-year mark of a pandemic that has kept us physically separate. In response, it seems that one of the most beautiful things we could do is deepen and expand the rituals that celebrate our profound interdependence, that express our wholehearted yes to one another and to life.

My choir keeps on reahrshals on zoom, and we also pray there.
This is a new rituals, of course a different one, but we put all our enthusiastic committment in it.
The breathing and gratitude ritual Kristi showed us has been very helpful. It has even popped up during the day and made me stop…and realise…I am grateful for that moment.(‘am’ should be underlined.)
So thank you! This ritual will probably continue.

When after heavy rain the storm clouds disperse, is it not that they’ve wept themselves…
What if you discovered that living with awareness and intention, focusing on what makes you…
