About this experience

The Art of Ritual: Deepening the Craft of Presence, Listening & Relating 

 

Ritual invites us to dive deeper into our innate power and humble grace. It invites us to become our own spiritual authority and to align with the sacred as we create new pathways of being.  

Remembering the ancient and ever-renewing art of ritual or practices that connect can offer ways to heal ourselves and each other. 



Ritual builds community, creates art and magic, and supports us in being present with ourselves, the mysterious ones and spirits, each other and the earth.   



Co-creating rituals can be a vital part of our embodied activism and artistry in the worlds. It may help us by grounding our justice work in a context of life affirming interdependence.

Suzanne Sterling
I am a musician, yogi, activist and ritualist and have been performing and teaching transformational workshops for over 30 years. My joy and passion is inspiring others to find their unique voice and to use self expression as a tool for social change and conscious evolution.
I have been a featured artist/teacher at hundreds of festivals and conferences such as Wanderlust, Omega, Esalen, Kripalu, Yoga Journal, Hanuman, Burning Man, Symbiosis, Ecstatic Dance, Bhaktifest, Boomfest, LIB, IONS, Earthdance and more. As a musician, I have released 5 solo albums and numerous DVD soundtracks.

Since 2007 I have been training leaders of conscious activism and social justice through my co-founded organization Off The Mat, Into the World (OTM). As director of OTM’s Seva Challenge Humanitarian Tours, I have spent time in the US, India, Cambodia, Haiti, Ecuador and Africa supporting community resilience.

For the past 30 years, I have worked with the International Reclaiming Community, creating ritual, teaching classes/witchcamps and training teachers. My website is suzannesterling.com


Fio Gede Parma
I am a settler who aspires to be a responsible guest in the stolen lands of many First Nations. Most recently I have called the sacred Country of the Gadigal, Bidjigal, Yuggerah, Jagera, Turrbal, and Wurundjeri peoples home. I am a wanderer and my heart is always longing for my beloveds - human and more-than-human - in many holy, polluted places.

I was born in the volcanic island of Bali and identify as Balinese-Australian, with Irish, Scottish, and British ancestry. I am forged of and born to tiger, volcano, crocodile, sorcery, dragon, mountain, valley, oak, horse, serpent, oracle, witchery, iron, pearl, and dance.
My magic is the magic of the broken-open-heart, of the furiously dedicated and sensuous witch who weaves with myriad mysteries and respectfully engages folklore, legend, and lineage. I am passionately wed to the Wildwood, Feri, and Reclaiming communities of witchcraft. I am an initiate and teacher in those traditions and adore the magics of these radical and revolutionary witches.
I am also an editor, author, co-weaver of seven books (soon to be eight!) including The Witch Belongs to the World, Ecstatic Witchcraft, and with Jane Meredith (and many others) Elements of Magic and Magic of the Iron Pentacle. I am devoted to the integrity, poetry, artfulness, and justice of the Craft. My website is fiogedeparma.com
