I distinctly remember my first Wiccan ritual. The anticipation, wonder, and thrill of being in a circle of women. Given permission to sink into our hearts, to focus on a common purpose, to witness everyone’s beauty and, and to listen to each other’s goals. We were invited to play with movement, language, song, and laughter, to flow with a loose structure, and to improvise what was needed in the moment. The experience was delicious and deeply satisfying, a thoroughly nourishing and wholesome drug.
