Individuals and Families
Ritual Works deepens and enriches your experience of life transitions. I create ceremonial observances of milestone events, seasonal celebrations, and rituals that promote spiritual discovery and creativity development. More:

  1. EXAMPLE: A renewal of wedding vows. We gathered symbols unique to the couple: water imagery for the ocean lover, a heart-shaped stone that had been a gift from one partner to the other, a Celtic handfasting to represent the participants’ Irish ancestry.

For business and professional groups, I offer clients a unique and compelling method of organizational development using ritual as a primary tool of engagement. More:

  1. EXAMPLE: An open house for a university multicultural center. We set up stations where visitors could participate in traditional New Year's activities from several cultures.

Workshops for Leaders
As a leader, you are charged with the responsibility for the well-being of your organization and its members. But what sustains you as you are expected to sustain others? More:

  1. EXAMPLE: A send-off ritual for the director of a library taking a new job in the Middle East. We packed him a “suitcase” of symbols: A quilt with an image of a palm tree, an Arabic phrase book, a recipe, the Sunday Times Crossword puzzle, and a compass.
