Welcome to The Celebration – a modern day summer ritual to celebrate all the things and people that make our lives rich and meaningful. During this time of the year, when life is buzzing around us, we want to honour connection in all its forms and our place in this magnificent web.
Around the end of June, our world enters summer. A period of warmth, abundance, and vitality, where almost all parts of the world seem to be buzzing and flourishing. The fields are full of insects, the trees full of birds, and the streets and parks full of people. Everything and everyone seems to be out, enjoying and using the warm season.
To mark the passage into the summer, we want to come together for a ritual of honouring the (inter-)connection of all things. Here we want to celebrate the things and people that make our life rich and meaningful.
This ritual is as much about seeing and listening to the world, as much as it is about affirming its various parts. So we venture inwards and we venture outwards to find in ourselves the voice that says: Yes to life!
THE CELEBRATION IS PART OF PASSAGES — A RITUAL JOURNEY THROUGH THE YEAR
Every year the earth goes through its seasonal cycle, and as the world around us is changing, so are we. What we desire and need, how much energy we have to spare, in what ways we want to engage with others or ourselves — it changes just as much.
PASSAGES takes you on a ritual journey through this cycle of a year. The journey consists of four rituals — one for each season — and each one invites you to slow down, reflect on where you are in your current year, and get clarity on how you want your year to continue. All rituals are secular, participatory, and inclusive. PASSAGES encourages you to actively become the author of your own story.The four rituals are the following:
- The Seed | Mar 18
- The Celebration | Jun 24
- The Harvest | Sep 09
- The Rest | Dec 09
While we encourage to commit to all four rituals for the best experience, you can just as well join as many as you like. No ritual requires the experience of the previous one, and at what time of the year you join the ritual journey is up to you.
