"Rituals are the expression of the human need to belong, to be part of a group." (Fritz Perls) Investigate the basic theory and practice of rites, rituals and celebrations. Learn to design and create individual and group rituals including structure and components that incorporate expressive arts in the process. Experiential exercises will explore the power of rites, rituals, and celebrations, their ability to promote connection to self and others, and their power as healing, change and transformation tools. All of this will be explored in a safe space, with a focus on creation and participation. There will be ample time for questions and discussion. Whether you are an Expressive Arts student or not, no matter your spiritual beliefs or lack thereof, learn how to use rites, rituals and celebrations to create meaning or change in your life - at home, at work, and with families and communities.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
