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.

I'm Zita Christian. I've been performing public and private rituals for large groups, families, and individuals for nearly twenty years. You can find more information at MoonRiverRituals.com  If you're interested in weddings, please go you Youtube and watch "Weddings with Zita" where I interview wedding vendors and newlyweds. It's one of three shows I host and produce on the ZitaTVNetwork.

At 9 years old, I didn't care that my mother wasn't funny like Lucille Ball, or that she didn't wear circle skirts and twirl around the house like Loretta Young, or that she was no longer pretty like Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke. I wanted my mother to be brave, like Annie Oakley. Not long after Rosa Parks sat on that bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in the whites-only section, I found out how brave my mother really was...and that Black Lives Matter. 

This episode contains a simple ritual I call "Colored." Done with a group, the ritual can open the door to conversations about race. 

Mentioned in the episode: 

The 10 must-watch documentaries about Civil Rights, compiled by PBS.
