Our rituals are intended to help you focus upon your personal quest and to prepare the inner way. Ritual must be personally enacted. Rituals are not just made up words. Suggestions are given to help you concentrate on what you are doing and why.

Your intention is the dynamo of the ritual. The words, gestures and movements are the fuel. Don’t be afraid of long moments of silence: it is in the sacred silence that the Spirit speaks to your soul. Be open to spontaneous and unscripted methods of ritual.

Ritual comes in 7 parts:

Materials:

Seasonal Flowers
Incense
Candles (directions and fire)
