Introduction to Ritual - $45 / $60
A course designed to explain the basic elements of a sacred ritual. All religions develop some form of ceremony. These ceremonies vary, depending on the tenets of belief for each spiritual path. But all rituals seek to establish a greater connection to the Divine Spirit. In this course we will examine some of the basic elements of a sacred ritual, the origins of these elements, and why they are important. The students will be encouraged to create their own personal ritual out of the elements discussed in the class. In the final class session, the students will perform their own unique ritual, incorporating the elements that they consider to be the most important to them.
