Custom Ritual Design
Do you feel like your life could use more structure, habit, or meaning? Do you feel that something is amiss that warrants a gestural rather than medicinal solution?
I don't consider myself spiritual or religious, but I find that there is comfort in ritualistic behavior; it soothes as it symbolically externalizes feelings, imbues actions with meaning, and asks us to pay attention to things that we otherwise dismiss as impractical or uneconomical. I think that rituals are meaningful even if they don't have religious context.
I have a collection of rituals that I have developed to apply to different scenarios. If you are interested in a ritual to invoke creativity, extend empathy, or another specific situation, I may have what you need. If you are looking for ritual in general, we can talk and I may have something that will work for you. We will meet up and I can walk you through the steps.
Otherwise, we can get together in person to design a ritual together.
Training & Qualifications
I am a game designer; I think that if we accept that games can be boiled down to systems of rules, and that games have merit beyond indulgence and fun (consider Chess as a game of strategic training), then we can design games that have significant impact to ourselves as players.
I am a game designer, and I like to make games that challenge us. Game design has helped me understand the systems, rules, and instructions that govern many parts of our lives, including daily and ceremonial behaviors.
