Everyday rituals for a more joyful and meaningful life
By Chloe Isidora
Ceremonies and rituals to ease the mind, connect to the heart and honour the moment.
'Chloe is an absolute gem. As an early mentor and then friend I watched her turn her creative gifts from fashion into something so giving and nurturing. She draws on her experience of the yin and yang of life to offer women something tangibly spiritual to incorporate into their modern lives. I've watched her turn three back to back challenging events into rocks to leap into the great unknown and become the softest, strongest gem.' - Jasmine Hemsley
During the average day, most people's time is consumed by thinking 'I need to do this. Can't forget that. How did I come across? What did that person think of me? Why are they acting like that?' Our endless thoughts can run havoc and often cause a state of stress and anxiety - the mind can be a very useful and brilliant tool, but when we slip into unhelpful thought patterns, with the same story going around and around on repeat, it's exhausting.
In Sacred Self-Care, Chloe Isidora offers an antidote, with ceremonies and rituals that ease the mind and connect you to your heart space. Rituals can range from the smallest act, such as lighting a candle or blessing your food, to a ceremony involving many people singing and dancing. These processes encourage you to slow down, to honour the moment and to connect to something greater than yourself.
Learn how to create a sacred space, hold a ceremony and weave ritual into everyday life. Through practices suggested throughout the book, you will create opportunities throughout the day, week and year to experience reconnecting and receive your own inner guidance, recognizing the feeling of following your joy, just as Chloe herself has.
