restorative rituals

Restorative Rituals. When I read that term a few weeks ago, as an idea for helping us cope with our stay-at-home policies, immediately a litany of thoughts came to mind. Small rituals, personal rituals, family rituals, community rituals. I thought of nature-based rituals, daily rituals, weekly rituals, ordinary rituals and out of the ordinary rituals. I thought of religious rituals – both corporate and individual.

We find ourselves in this place where corporate ritual is through screen time, and we have little choice about that. But we are in control of what we can do individually, to experience healing ritual. We can be intentional, mindful in what we do each day. We can take ourselves to places where we can see unusual things, beautiful things, to refresh our thoughtful meditation.

What are you doing these days? What rituals do you do to refresh your spirit in these challenging times? Where might you go to find a new expression for your own ritual? Restoration. It's not hard to understand how much we need that right now.


Yes – that's what we need now. Restorative Rituals.
