Receiving ashes on the forehead the day Lent begins is a ritual Catholics (and some others) wouldn’t miss. It began long before we knew the universe story. This ritual “embeds” it in that cosmic story, reminding […]
Following a brief background about the celebration, this Winter Solstice Ritual celebrates light (and darkness) in a Universe Story perspective. Users can adapt it as they wish.
