This section features a growing collection of resources on practices and rituals relevant to spiritual naturalists. Practices are those activities designed to help cultivate qualities that make for a better life, and rituals are expressions of values in symbolic form, often involving motion, community, iconography, and myth. Rituals can have developmental functions and practices can have ritualistic elements, as the two may overlap. Most practitioners will not regularly employ all of these techniques. Rather, the selection is part of one’s personal practice, inclinations, and what is effective. If you have suggestions or additions to this section, please contact us or discuss on the member forums!
