“Return Again” musical refrain (from YouTube or a recording of appropriate music) plays as we begin and end and in between each of the Four Worlds as we prepare to ritualize the earth, water, fire, and air.
We create sacred space together as we honor this very holy time: a time of homecoming and return, of repentance, of casting off negative patterns, action and behaviors and interactions within ourselves, with others, with the planet, and with the Divine. It is as well a time of hope and opportunity. We can create more positive interactions in all Four Worlds that we inhabit.
