The importance of ritual and ceremony such as welcomings, closures, birthdays, namings, marriages, holy days, earth cycle celebrations is to achieve liminal space. I find facilitating rituals and ceremonies healing. I feel a sense of calm and wellbeing when I take the time to honor the timelessness and bounty of an experience of my own or someone else’s close to me. Music, sound and sacred words from the now and from times in the past are what make the space of ceremony sacred. Poetry, prayers and well wishes are the scaffolding for sharing insights and intuitive visions for the future. I am grateful for ceremonial experiences such as these.
