The Power of Sacred Ritual: Cultivating a Life of Purpose, Connection + Flow
Recenlty, I, Theresa, was interviewed on The Mystical Positivist radio show/podcast by Dr. Robert Schmidt and Stuart Goodnick. Local folks will be familiar with Rob and Stuart from our wonderful local spiritual bookstore, Many Rivers Books and Tea.
Recently I was interviewed for the Twisting the Plot Podcast. You can listen to that interview here. Twisting the Plot: New Possibilities for Women over 50. is the brainchild of Dr.Cecilia Dintino and Hannah Murray, both psychotherapists with years of experience in many modalities including Drama Therapy, who noticed when they reached a certain age that there was no roadmap for women over 50. Or … the ones that existed were less than exciting.
What can one say about the majesty of the ocean and how its very life is being threatened in the same sentence? And yet, that is the situation we find ourselves in, the tension and contradiction we must hold in these times.
As Rachel Carson wrote in her beautiful tome to the ocean, The Sea Around Us:
“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life”(xiii).
Water is life and the ocean gave birth to all forms of biological life on this planet. Strega Tree Apothecary offers this bracelet and the ritual that comes with it to honor the ocean and allow the wearer be reminded of its beauty and majesty, to hold the ocean in highest regard. There is a prescriptive ritual included at the request of the Kontomble that will take you to the water’s edge to lean more deeply into this connection.
Crossroads rituals are often prescribed in divination.* Classically it is when a person is approaching or anticipating a change in their life, or holding a question about making a change. They are told to go, either at dawn or dusk, to a crossroads and leave a quarter, asking the Spirit of the Crossroads to “guide me safely through these crossroads.” They deposit the quarter in the middle of the crossroads and do not look back.
This ritual can have many variations.
