Custom Ritual Design

40


40 simbi per unit

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.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I like Albert. He tries on new versions of himself to see how to best align with who he wants to be. I'm still not sure who he wants to be, but that's... good, because I like who he is, and I trust that who he eventually becomes, that will be just a more refined, evolved and compassionate version of the guy we all get to enjoy today. show more

I can't say enough good things about Albert. He is one of the nicest and most genuine human beings I have ever met. Our custom ritual experience was a... lot more meaningful than I expected. I am not religious at all, but Albert and I discussed the helpful benefits of ritual outside of its spiritual or religious context. In the way that visualization can help a person find clarity, deliberate thought and movement can also be very powerful. I have definitely made a great friend in Albert. We shared a great meal after our sessions and continued our excellent discussion. Can't wait to see Albert again soon. show more

Angelica received Visit of Coffee, Breakfast, and Conversation from Albert

Albert is really cool and super open-minded (I mean you have to be when you invite complete strangers to your house and cook for them. +2 points for ...talking and cooking at the same time.) He was just so interesting to talk to, as it felt like he always knew something about anything we talked about. And he's just into so many things that it's both humbling and inspiring at the same time. It gave me great relief that we found such an amazing person for a mere 15 simbi. To be honest, I think he's worth hands down at least 200 simbi. Truly worth the trip and time spent.show more
