A ritual is any action we take that has meaning beyond its appearance; by giving an action intention it becomes ‘sacred’ and purposeful.

The absence of significant ceremony in our lives has left us feeling disconnected, confused and alone Rituals and ceremony allow us to be present in the now, focus on the future and provide us with closure on the past, they return us to what matters.
