Rebecca Armstrong has an expansive view of living in the natural world without superstition or magic without sacrificing meaningful rituals. Using storytelling, music, art and passion for life, Rebecca presents the case for including ritual in the lives of individuals and communities just like our own. Ritual is an activity that humans have created to carry forward culture while at the same time leaving room for innovation and transformation. With a deep understanding of ritual gained from academic study as well as practical and personal experience, Rebecca brings a thoughtful and lively presence to the subject, as well as the invitation to rethink ritual and its place in our lives and groups. Refreshments served immediately after the meeting.
