Creating Contemporary Ritual for Every Occasion

Afternoon Session: Spelling it Out: Ritual Rules of Engagement

The need for ritual is a basic human instinct, a compelling urge to merge with the infinite. Ceremony — solitary or shared, public or private — offers us a way to relate intimately with the primordial force, and to embrace that sacred power which informs and fuels all existence. Ritual is our lifeline to the divine.

Ritual adds richness to our lives. Special times call out for special ceremonies — whether to consecrate new beginnings and growth, to honor relationships and responsibilities, to celebrate achievements and joys, or to ease times of pain and burden. There is great value to be gained by taking the time and making the effort to infuse these milestones with significance and sanctity. By ritualizing our profound passages, we honor our personal journey, our loved ones, our affiliations, and our connection to Spirit.

Join renowned ritualist Mama Donna Henes, Urban Shaman, as she guides you through the meaning, the mind-set, the mood, the method, and the magic of establishing a ceremonial order to your life. You will experience an intimate, imaginative, and engaging taste of the potent rewards of establishing a personally resonant ritual practice. And you will gain the spiritual and practical wherewithal to enable you to design and enact meaningful, transformational rituals and rites of transition for yourself, your family, your business, your organization, and your community.

We each have within us the resources based on our own unique life experiences to create for ourselves personally relevant rituals. By re-claiming ritual as a reverential and joyful celebration of the cycle of the seasons and the seasons of our lives in all that we do, we can mold our meaningful moments into our own psychic support system. Participants will help to create a community ritual for the evening.


Evening Session: A Ceremony to Consecrate Our Best Intentions

Spring is the time for planting the seeds of what we want to grow. What do you want to grow? What is your vision of expansion, of increase, of extension — mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, materially, politically? Join Mama Donna in a sacred circle as we identify, clarify, and sanctify the seeds of our intentions, and drum up the energy of the waxing Pink Moon to charge them. What you seed it is what get!

Please bring a candle in a glass container, a drum or percussion instrument, and plenty of spirit.
