Volume 14: Celebration & Ceremony

Celebration and ceremony renew the human spirit, and remind us of our connectedness to the divine, to the earth, and to one another. Contributors to this issue of Whole Terrain explore the very nature of these fundamental human practices, and reflect on how celebration and ceremony shape our lives and our work.
