Experience ritual as a transformative tool; a way to move beyond old, limiting self-concepts and into an expanded state of being, opening to the limitless abundance of Spirit and your interconnection with “All There Is.” Participating in ritual in a personally meaningful way, “expands our field,” creating a powerful link to Spirit and accessing resources beyond those we normally have available to us. Once you have experienced this profound connection, you will never be the same. And when we take that experience out into our everyday world, not only are we functioning at a higher level of wellness (or wholeness) personally; we are changing the planetary paradigm of separation that is destroying our planet.
In this workshop we will create a unifying space for individuals of all spiritual paths to experience our true essence, a doorway to “remembering” that we Perfect, we are Divine, we are “Spirit Embodied.” The more Attention and Intention we bring to ritual, the greater power and effect that ritual will have, which is multiplied exponentially when performed as a group. Join us and experience what ritual has to offer.
