I believe seeing home life as a Sacred Ritual can elevate everyday life to a new level. Imagine if you could turn everyday routines into special moments.
Why not turn your home into a sancturary for your life? It would a combination of intention + presence.
Good DESIGN is no longer just about colour, function and aesthetics. It is about creating a product, an idea, a space that can enhance our life and help us deal with what obstacles this changing world is throwing at us. Our houses are no longer simply homes but places where we work, study, socialise and shop. We demand dwellings that celebrate the rituals of domestic life and allow for privacy and change of mood.
Some ideas on activities that can become 'rituals' when they are consciously done with clear intention:
- Waking Up
- Make the bed thank the bed
- Music while cleaning up
- Opening all the windows welcoming a breathe of fresh air + a fresh start
- A candle blessing
- Thanking things as they are put away.
- Food prep
- Brushing teeth
- Going to Bed
I will leave this musing here and revisit each topic above as I continue to practice experiencing the everyday as ritual.
