The Power of Ceremony Workshop
Restoring ceremony to our lives is one way to develop a closer relationship to Earth, Spirit, and our fellow human beings. Using the seven principles of ceremony from her newest book The Power of Ceremony: Restoring the Sacred in Our Selves, Our Families, Our Communities, Linda Neale helps
participants to build their own personal or family ceremony based on their particular spiritual orientation. Listening, Intention, Preparation, Structure, Symbols, Prayer, and the Unexpected are all considered in this interactive workshop.
Please bring an idea or intention for a particular ceremony that you'd like to create.
