Welcome. This is where I help spiritually minded people create safe and simple rituals to give real meaning to seasonal cycles and rites of passage.

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.

Here in my cosmic kitchen, you can 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, writer, ritualist, certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, and unabashed woo-woo woman. I've been performing public and private rituals for large groups, families, and individuals for over  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.  I'm on Instagram, too.

Imagine an owl. Did you feel a sense of apprehension or foreboding? No surprise. Owls have long been associated with death. Or, did you picture Harry Potter's owl, Hedwig? Beliefs about owls are contradictory because the owl is the symbol of death, and wisdom, and magic. 

At the heart of owl medicine is the ability to...
