Creating Celebrations

Originally posted on September 11, 2011

Did you know you could create your own rituals, ceremonies, celebrations? I’ve written about this in a paper on my website,    a chapter in my anthology, Interactive & Improvisational Drama, and also posted a supplement on my website for that book. They’ve got a national organization for training people who can serve as consultants for this, just like wedding or funeral consultants—but they are more open to innovation and individualizing the process to fit your need. The types of rituals you can generate is also mind-opening!

All this is just one example of the many ways we can expand our imagination and empower ourselves to celebrate in many ways. Another approach I’ve been writing about (and am doing a little workshop about) is promoting the singing of simple chants and songs. More about this in another blog entry soon. Sing! Sing a song! Yes you can!
