This Season

 

Weddings can be amazing. They can be amazing because it's incredibly bold, beautiful and vulnerable to acknowledge a deep love, a support and commitment to another person. When we invite other people to witness our commitments to any project, even our loves, we are holding ourselves accountable on a deeper level. 

 

We have so few public rituals in our culture. So little reverence for the ceremonial. I think we should have ceremonies for our full hearts, for our broken hearts, for the marriages we make to one another, for the commitments we make to ourselves, for our health, our healing, our seasons, our land, our births and our deaths. I believe there is much we can heal in holding space together. A ceremony that honors our love to another is special.
