I find that there is majesty in rituals and celebrations when the intention is about honouring the moment:  the moment of birth; the moment of marriage; the moment of death; the moment of hope when wishing anew at the start of a new year.  And always, simply always, the moment when we fall in love again.

AWAKENING THE SACRED IN EVERYDAY LIFE: WINTER/ Sonoma, California, February 26, 2011
Summary: We are living at a time of great global upheaval occurring in institutions and ways of governance...a time of rapid change in how we communicate, how we conduct business and how we choose to live our lives. When all the constructed beliefs of a generation are peeled away, what constitutes the core? What is left and what is learned from the letting go? What is the essence of that which remains?
