Writing and executing the Perfect Ritual

Have you ever gone to a ritual and come out of it feeling like it had somehow changed you? Have you ever finished a ritual that someone else had officiated and thought to yourself, "That's the type of ritual I want to do."?

What causes one ritual to be absolutely moving, and others to just take up time? What is the purpose of ritual? How can you create consistently good rituals that make you feel like you are doing more than standing around in a circle, and saying some words? What is the Secret?

This is tonight's topic.

    I appologize for missing this. I knew the parade was tonight but failed to make the connection that is was just a few blocks away and that parking would be boardering on impossible. After driving around for 20 mins looking for a space, I knew there was no possible to be there on time.

    I hope, if you offer this again one day, to be more on top of it.

      There was plenty of parking space in the parking lot. I got here 5 to 10 minutes before 7 & had no problem finding a spot.

    I'm sorry, But I'm going to miss you all & I would like to ask for some healing energy from all, if you have it spare. I'm haveing 6 nerve endings couterized in my lower back. My Dr's say I can't drive for 24 hours after the procedure. Besides, not being there last time I feel I'm a step behind on the subject. All be well & I will see you next time. Samm

      Healing energy coming your way.
      This week's meetup is a totally different subject from the previous meetup's subject. So, you won't be behind anything or anyone. I'm sure someone would be willing to pick you up & take you home.

    Remember, we start exactly at 7pm. Come early, so you have time to get food and drink without missing anything!
