Rituals to Invite Balance and Well-being

By changing the way you do routine things
you allow a new person to grow inside of you.

~Paulo Coelho

This site is a compilation of rituals and stories from many different people around the world. Each post is a different person's response to an invitation to share their rituals for healthy living, activities or behaviors they do regularly for the purpose of bringing value to their well-being. Perhaps there is a ritual in these pages that will catch your attention and find its way into your own life. To help keep this site alive, comment on what you read, share your story if you try one of the rituals, and submit new rituals.

Welcome and Enjoy!


Submit Your Stories and Rituals

Please share the rituals that you value in your life, experiences that help keep alive your sense of well-being. You can also share stories about your efforts to adopt a new ritual or the ways you are experimenting with some of the rituals other people have shared here.

Please email your submissions to openingspace@gmail.com. Indicate how you would like to be referenced
  1. Would you like for your name to be posted or be anonymous?
  2. Do you want your first and last name or just first?
  3. Do you want to provide a link to a website of yours or an email address?
If you have a picture to illustrate your offering, include that as well. You may also indicate what categories you feel your ritual belongs to (or you can leave this for me to do!).

Thank you for offering to share your experiences. May we each continue to learn from one another, deepening our experience of being alive.

We eat breakfast together and water the garden in the backyard.

Feeding our hummingbirds.

We hang out our sheets and blankets in the summer and revel in climbing into bed at night.

We go to bed in the evening at a set time during school months and if they are reading a good book no bedtime applies.

Listening to Woodie Guthrie Children's songs while puttering around the house.

Eating Pizza and watching a Baseball Game together at home.

Dinner at the playground. Parents sneak a bottle of Sangiovese
