Ritual - a visible act performed with invisible intent. If you've ever made a wish and blown out the candles on a birthday cake, you've performed a ritual.

Welcome to my cosmic kitchen. Nibble on simple rituals designed to deepen your connection to yourself and those around you. Feast on substantive rituals for weddings, baby blessings, vow renewals, new homes, new businesses, projects of all kinds.   

You'll also find rituals to help you process loss and navigate the rocky roads of life. While a ritual won't take away pain, a good ritual, one filled with meaning and performed with respect, can help us carry the burdens that come with being human. 

As the seasons change, rituals connect us to the wisdom of the ancestors and to the invisible world we glimpse when we gaze at the moon and reflect on the changes in our life, when we wish upon a star and feel hope, when we see a butterfly and surrender to inevitable  transformation.
