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  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.

If you like Ritual Recipes, please subscribe on the directory of your choice.  Then share an episode with a friend. It's like sharing a recipe, a Ritual Recipe. Thanks.

The Game of Thrones Season 1 relationship between Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen reveals the Venus-Mars energy in the wedding ritual of Circling. The ritual can also be used in a vow renewal celebration. Once you understand the power of the Moon, the Circling ritual isn't as patriarchal as it might seem.

When life feels anything but abundant, sometimes the smallest gesture can transform that feeling. That's a lesson I learned from my daughter when she was a teenager working at a candy counter. 

She wasn't the only employee selling gourmet jelly beans that day. I watched as customers politely declined to purchase from...

A pregnant bride in her early thirties didn't want to carry a bouquet and asked me if she had to. I assured her there were no requirements that she carry flowers. I also explained why she might want to reconsider her decision.

In August of 2008, I was one of six women gathered on Cape Cod, laptops in tow, to work on a manuscript begun by our friend Liz Aleshire. At the time, Liz was in the cardiac ICU unit of Hartford Hospital.

He said the knowledge would save our world from the destruction of his world, Atlantis. He told her to tell her story to Zita. At the time,...
