The Numinous School is my year-long, online, intuition development program. Each lesson in the textbook explains an important principle and teaches a specific technique.
In our live monthly calls, we expand on the principle and explore the technique through practice, troubleshooting and sharing.
Ritual + Ceremony: Dialogue Across The Realms
Principle: It has been said that, “ritual is poetry in the realm of action”. Practicing Ritual and Ceremony are critical elements of spiritual development because they engage four states of awareness – the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual – all at once.
Technique: The basic structure of ritual involves Intention, Invocation, Declaration and Demonstration.
Topics: In this lesson we’ll explore the difference between ceremony and ritual and how you know which you need; examples of traditional ritual and ceremonial forms; cultural appropriate in designing your own rituals; frameworks for rituals of beginnings, endings, transitions, release, embrace, healing and honouring.
