Rituals for the New Year

with Barbara Biziou


The year just ended has been a very challenging one, but January, the beginning of a new year, is an auspicious time to use the power of ritual to align our minds, hearts, and actions; to rethink our intentions; and to take an active role in consciously shaping our future.

Ritual expert and longtime ceremony leader Barbara Bizou will draw from a range of cross-cultural traditions and spiritual teachings to help us create our own rituals, tailored to the new reality we find ourselves in and our contemporary lives, so that we can move into this new year with energy, inspiration, and focus. Because there have been so many more factors outside our control recently, we need to be especially intentional in focusing our energy and actions.

This evening will provide us with a great opportunity to ground and come together as a strong community.

Note: This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for a limited time only.
