Why Ceremonies Matter?
Ceremony is essential to humans:
“It’s a circle that we draw around important events to separate the momentous from the ordinary. And ritual is a sort of magical safety harness that guides us from one stage of our lives into the next, making sure we don’t stumble or lose ourselves along the way. Ceremony and ritual march us carefully right through the center of our deepest fears about change.”
- Elizabeth Gilbert
“Death is nothing at all...
Why should I be out of your mind, because I am out of your sight?”
- Henry Scott Holland
