Celebrate Love! Valentine’s Day Rituals for Everyone
What comes to mind when you think about Valentine’s Day? Romance? Chocolates and roses? Candlelight dinners for two? Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love ~ and love is so much bigger than champagne toasts and romantic comedies! Whether you are happily single, looking for love, part of a couple, or grieving the loss of a loved one, Valentine’s Day is your day to celebrate love.
At “Celebrate Love! Valentine’s Day Rituals for Everyone,” we will explore the traditions and rituals of Valentine’s Day and create some new rituals of our own. Through ritual, meditation, and reflection, we will delve into our understandings and experiences of love. Bring a friend, come on your own, or invite a loved one. Let’s reclaim Valentine’s Day as a day to celebrate all the ways we experience love – love for our family members, love between friends, love for our pets, love between partners, love for loved ones lost, love of nature, love for our world!

Resolutions for Resilience
2020 is in full swing! How are those resolutions coming along? January 12th is reported to be the day most resolutions fail. Even for those who stick with it longer, U.S. News & World Report tells us that the success rate for New Year’s resolutions is only 20 percent. When we (inevitably) fail at our resolutions, we often blame ourselves and experience feelings of shame and guilt.
At “Resolutions for Resilience: A Ritual Based Workshop on the Transformative Power of Resolutions” we will re-frame the concept of resolutions and consider how to incorporate our goals into daily-life. Using the tools of ritual, meditation, and reflection, we will explore the motivations behind our resolutions, identify an internal goal versus an external goal, and actively create a resilient resolution.
No matter where you are with your 2020 resolutions (or perhaps you gave up on the whole resolution thing years ago), this workshop can help you identify healthy resolutions that can transform your daily life. January 1st is an arbitrary date. What is important is how you approach your resolutions spiritually and emotionally each day. Let’s explore together!

Blue Holiday Workshop
Our culture bombards us with messages of joy and happiness during the holiday season. Office parties, family gatherings, and gift giving all become occasions for socializing and festivity. But not everyone is up and cheery for the holidays. In fact, many people are dealing with hidden grief or loss. Mourning the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce, coping with a job loss, living with illness or trauma, and any number of other human situations can make this season painful.
If this describes the holiday season for you or someone you love, you are invited to attend the Rites of Passage, LLC “Blue Holiday Workshop” on Wednesday, December 18th from 7pm-8:30pm in Room 7 at the O.N.E. Community Center, 20 Allen St., Burlington, VT. (Parking can be accessed off North St.)
This workshop will be a safe space of acknowledgment and acceptance. It will include space for reflection, a centering meditation, and time to share tools for navigating the holidays in ways that feel healing and life-affirming to you. Whether you embrace the religious or cultural aspects of the holiday season (or both) you are welcome. People of all secular or spiritual worldviews are encouraged to attend.
The workshop cost is $15 and space is limited to 15 people. Pre-registration is required. You can respond through Facebook, e-mail me directly at email@example.com, visit our website at https://ritesofpassagevt.com/, or call 802-825-8141 to reserve your spot. Payment will be received by cash or check at the time of the workshop.
The holiday season is hard for those whose hearts are hurting. You are not alone.
