ow do you turn thoughts into things? How do you bring that which cannot be expressed into the mundane world? And how do you negotiate life’s transitions, both major and minor, with reverence and grace?
The lost art of acknowledging change and giving it its due. A toddler giving up his pacifier. A teenager starting her first job. Two adults ready to make a commitment to each other. A retiree coping with the loss of a pet. Life is full of changes, expected and unexpected. And the modern world does not give us much in the way of coping mechanisms. By creating ritual, we give ourselves the time and space to work through these transitions. We embody meaningful, purposeful experiences that allow us to process our fear, our joy, our anxiety, our grief.
