Rites & Ritual Support
With gentleness, rootedness and inexorable expansiveness, I am committed to co-facilitating healing through magic, plant medicine and ritual – because magic is real, and powerful, and if engaged with intention and integrity, can help us on our path to radically change our selves and the world.
Healing Ritual Arc
The Shape of our Sessions
This is a collaborative process that we will come up with together, based on your needs. Healing ritual can be as elaborate or simple as a person finds meaningful.
A suggested structure includes at least three sessions. In a first Opening session, you will have space to share what is going on for you, your intentions for your own healing, and any ideas you already have that you would like support in creating. If welcome, I can share some sacred tools and technologies we could utilize in circle to support your goals. We will plan together what the ritual will entail in this collaborative session.
A second Ritual session would be the ritual circle itself. Ritual tools for healing may include casting sacred space, altar creation, grounding, plant medicine, meditation, guided trancework, prayer to deity or Spirit, journaling, divination, singing, toning, shadow work pieces, talisman and/or charm crafting, and more. We can work with candles, sacred smoke, magical oils, flower essences, or simply feeling into the connection between our creature bodies and the earth body all around us.
As a facilitator and supporter, I can hold many possible roles – ranging from silent witness, to holding the energetic container, to helping you through specific ritual parts so that you can simply be immersed in the experience of it.
You are at complete choice throughout this entire process.
A third, followup or final Closing session would come a week or two later to check in about how things are landing for you. This can include space for emotional processing. It can also include brainstorming next steps to support you in your healing journey, plant allies, resiliency practices, and more.
It is important that there is an opening, middle, and closing to our process together to allow full integration for any healing wisdom that may arise from within yourself. Building in closure is especially important when dealing with shadow aspects, deep trauma and/or healing wounds related to survivorship. The ‘middle’, the ritual itself, can be a single session or a series of sessions over time.

My practice is slow, intentional and intimate. I’m not on social media so much; I do occasionally share things through my instagram, @hawthornandyew. However, the best way to stay in touch and hear whats new is to sign up for my newsletter HOME/BODY.
You’ll hear from me on a weekly-ish basis, and these notes will contain info on upcoming workshops and programs, new zines, things my friends are working on, and more alongside long form writing about things i’m learning about, feeling about, questioning and embodying. tune in for musings on herbs, relationship with the world, embodying our values, dreaming and moving towards a more just world, and the practices that will can help get us there.
