Personal Rituals.

Each thought, each action in the sunlight of awareness becomes sacred.
In this light, no boundary exists between the sacred and the profane.
I must confess that it takes me a bit longer to do the dishes, but I live
fully in every moment, and I am happy. 
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

This month, we're exploring "Personal Rituals for Soulful Living." Our expert panel of contributors offer us their guidance and techniques for bringing sacredness into our everyday lives, through the simple and transformative process of incorporating personal rituals and practices into our daily routines.
