"Closings are often marked by a 'letting go' ritual, a construction to help participants transition out to whatever comes next. Time markers, clocks, bells, gongs, breathing exercises and other oral or visual markers can be used to announce and recognize a closing." - Closing, GroupWorksDeck.org
"They must provide space, breathing room, before moving on to what's next." - Closing, GroupWorksDeck.org
When you feel complete with your ritual, conclude it in a way that feels sweet to you. It might mean blowing out your candle, making a wish, or taking a last sip of tea.
But first, find a way to capture the hygge essence of your ritual and take it with you. You might imagine filling up your heart space, or you might place your hands over your heart to feel it happening physically.
As you head back into your day, think about what's ahead for you. What can you take from your ritual experience to make the rest of your day or night even better?
See you next time!
