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!


Rituals in the Classroom

  • We sing a song called “The Earth is Good to Me” before eating dinner
  • I usually eat something small but yummy while I read right before bed
  • In the classroom, for group well-being we meet at the start of the day to greet and start our work together
  • At the end of yoga we think about our intentions for the day at the end of meditation.
  • Saying namaste, thanking each other for practicing yoga together.
A frequent wish of mine over the years is that as a [school] community we would have some rituals together for the well-being of the community, like regular assemblies, singing the school song, etc. An updated version of the old rituals of the pledge of allegiance or patriotic songs. We were trying to think- when do we see ourselves (literally) as a whole community at our school?
