I have spent the last weeks considering what I can offer to support others in this time. To do this I have been reflecting upon what I am leaning on, turning to and practicing during these early weeks of isolation. Ceremonies for a time of Isolation is a month long process that will offer support in what I believe to be three essential ways that we can move through this time with power and grace:
Gratitude - Prayer- Intention
Gratitude for what we have
Prayer for those suffering with illness and from the failure in our system
Intention around what we can offer in this time while remaining grounded in that purpose
During this period of stress & unknown, Ceremonies for a time of Isolation will offer a way to invite beauty, poetry and reverence to your day to day through:
Daily methods and activities to remain grounded and calm
Creative activities to engage your mind and hands
A way to serve our world through mindful thought and consistent prayer
An intimate community for exchange and accountability
Structured support to aid you in using your energy for the highest good during this time of unrest
The Vision Conversation will be a one hour long conversation with me to process, articulate and clarify what you would like to do during this time. Though we are experiencing a great disruption to our system, there are opportunities for service, for visions, for creating something new that perhaps was not there before. Your Intention will be an important part of the process, and this conversation will be used to create that vision.
Daily Ritual & Practices
A significant part of the process will be focused on self guided daily practices. You will be encouraged to carve out time consistently to practice gratitude, prayer and align with your intention.
I will compose a daily ritual for you based on our conversation. If you would like, I will check in with you daily as a way to further support you and your Intention.
I will also offer prompts related to the three essentials - gratitude, prayer & intention. These prompts are completely optional and you can engage with them as you wish. The prompts can be for your own creative exploration or if you choose to share, via an online forum, the prompts may be used to create community with the others in ‘Ceremony for a time of Isolation.’ An example of a few prompts: take a photo from your window at three different times during your day, share a song that is currently resonating, make a list of 10 things in your space that you are grateful for, send a letter to someone in a different state.
The group ceremonies will offer us an opportunity to dive deeper into our three essentials: gratitude, prayer & intention. Ceremonies will include meditations, candle lighting, sounds, objects and sharing. The guided meditations from these ceremonies will be shared so that you can maintain a meditation practice between ceremonies. I will facilitate the first three ceremonies, and our final Closing Ceremony will be structured to allow you the opportunity, if you wish, to share something discovered during the month with our community.

"This ceremonial practice was deeply valuable to me. To set aside time for purpose and ritual has helped shape my day-to-day and stretch my mindfulness/contemplative muscles in a powerful way. I will carry this forward and consider ritual/ceremony as a methodology to cope with difficult circumstances in future."
