We will consider several forms of ceremonial practice that serve healing. By healing we mean a traditional, ritualized effort that is both guided and spontaneous. It serves a purpose: sometimes to promote recovery from illness, or to promote health in its totality of physical, mental, social and spiritual integrity. A third purpose of ceremonial healing is to serve wholeness, fulfillment and awakening.

The Ceremonial Healing we plan to share and practice today is more akin to prayer and meditation on one axis, and to creating music, dance, symbolic forms and sheer delight on another. Three specific forms will be included: 1) ‘How to hold a Tea Bowl’, The Japanese form for offering and receiving a bowl of Tea, 2) The Navajo story of “When the two came to their Father”, and 3) The Tibetan practice of creating a sand mandala. Through these three forms, we will create simple and direct Ceremonial Healing.

Instructor: Randall Weingarten, M.D., is a psychiatry specialist in Palo Alto, CA and has been practicing for 46 years. He graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine in 1968.
