Useful and True Ceremonies and Ritualism, An Introduction

Presenting Partner: Growth Guiders

Program Description: Ritual comes in many shapes and will be created and practiced by humans for all of time – as it helps us find meaning and create meaningful connection within our lives. Big or small, private or public, religious or secular – ritual spans from the simplest “Hello” to the highest of sacred practice. Ritual is a critical part of our ever-evolving lives. The symbolic art of initiation – for example, those rituals that provide a clear transition from new member to brother or that mark the change of responsibility and expectations – is seemingly being lost in our conglomerate of worldly traditions. Many of us have not been mentored into the art of creating or leading soulful (big or small) ritual within our communities – this is often something that we leave for gurus, specialist, elders, or just someone other than ourselves. This introduction workshop is meant to help you awaken the ritual focused leader in each man, to ignite a healthy and authentic inner-Ritualist. Attendees will see just how easy it is to bring meaningful rituals into the chapter and community as well as smaller every-day personal practices. We all, as humans, have both the need and capacity for powerful ritual.
