Fire is a powerful transformer. It transmutes heavy energy into light. It delivers our prayers to the heavens and cleanses our hearts.

Fire ceremonies can be large community events or small, private rituals of renewal. Most often fire ceremonies are held on a full or new moon when the veils between the worlds are thin.

Celebrating the sun’s solstice or equinox with a transformative fire is also a powerful a way to release that which no longer serves our health and wellbeing.

My favorite book this fall is Morning Altars by Day Schildkret, who introduces a ritual practice to nourish your spirit through the process of creating earth art.

His beautifully illustrated book displays many of earth altars he has created over the years. You will develop a richer relationship with the world around you once you witness his artistry and learn to celebrate the earth.This month we invite you to create an earth altar modeled on Morning Altars.

An ancestor altar will change your life.

When you invite your ancestors to engage, you can source from their wisdom and experience. They will reveal themselves in your thoughts and dreams. The exchange becomes a 2-way relationship. You help them on their journey in the world beyond as they help you in this earthly world.

Many cultures throughout the world use ancestor altars for protection and inspiration. A most colorful example of the celebration of ancestors is the Mexican celebration of the Dia de los Muertas or Day of the Dead. On November 1 and 2, families bui...

In every spiritual tradition there are prescribed periods of mourning the loss of a beloved. While the specific number of days, appropriate behavior and prescribed rituals vary from culture to culture, the message is the same: there is a time for mourning and there is a time to stop mourning.

We now recognize that grief does not have a specified time line. It comes; it goes and comes again.

In our workshop on Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying, we practice rituals for living, caregiving, grieving and dying. We know that rituals, when practiced consciously, bu...

The wisdom keepers of this world are masters of shifting subtle energies. They know a multitude of ways to create sacred spaces using nature, light, sound, color, and sacred objects.

It is inspiring to discover that 40,000 years ago we humans honored the animals we hunted by drawing them on the walls of sacred caves (France).

While in 800 CE, the temples of Borobudur (Island of Java) were constructed to symbolize the Buddhist cosmology of three worlds – the world of desire, the world of forms and the world of formlessness. Visitors sense the shifting energies of thes...

With the current revival of shamanism and shamanic healing, we are at last beginning to recognize the spiritual and psychological value of much that our ancestors knew.”   – Sandra Ingerman

A shaman is one who is trained in the use of altered states of consciousness. It is believed that shamanism and the wisdom traditions of trance, journeying, shape shifting and energetic healing have been practiced for some 10,000 years in all regions of the world. While individual practices may have local distinctions, the foundational techniques are universal.

Shamans may come f...
