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.

You can find me on Facebook -- Moon River Rituals & Ritual Recipes.

Do you believe in fairies? I do, but not in the way you might expect. My childhood ideas have changed. Now I think of fairies as thought forms of good energy -- helpful spirits, invisible, accessible.

Hear about Ho Hsien Ku, "the immortal woman," one of the 8 fairies in the Chinese legend.

Learn how to invite the fairies into your world, how to connect, what to offer. And, most of all, how to see them in the mirror.
