TOOLS FOR PERSONAL RITUAL-MAKING

From 12noon-2pm Eastern (9-11am Pacific)
Via ZOOM (online)
Classes are 2 hours in length
There are physical and psychological experiences and rites of passage common to all women’s lives, crossing the boundaries of age, class, culture, race, sexual orientation, and religion. While women have a great hunger for ritual to reflect the events in their lives, they often do not know how to begin. When consciously created and enacted, personal ritual can be transforming, linking the past, present, and future into a continuum that can be observed, felt, and learned from. By learning how to design ritual to mark our life passages we can “connect the dots”, to see patterns in what may have previously felt like a random series of events that have shaped our attitudes about life. Through Ruth’s unique guided process that draws personal intuitive information forward, participants will learn how to consciously make meaning by designing their own personal ritual to initiate healing, a life change or attitude, facilitate a change already in process, or name and claim a change or transformation that has already occurred.
There is no pre-requisite to register for this series but some introduction to feminist Witchcraft will enhance your experience.
TO REGISTER: The total cost for the class series is $120-$150 (sliding, based on ability to pay).

Having a copy of Ruth's book, Women's Rites, Women's Mysteries - Intuitive Ritual Creation (expanded 3rd edition) is highly recommended for this class.
“Ruth is a fabulous teacher and knows more about ritual than any priestess I've ever met.”
