The Art of Living Well Podcast®

Nov 16, 2022

On today’s episode of the show we welcome Mara Branscombe who is a mother, writer, yogi, artist, teacher, mindfulness leader, ceremonialist and spiritual coach. She is the author of “Ritual As Remedy: Embodied Practices For Soul Care.”  Mara is passionate about weaving the art of mindfulness, self-care, creativity, mind–body practices, and earth-based rituals into her life and work, and she has been leading community ceremony since 2000. 

Mara guides us through a brief and wonderful grounding ritual that you can do as part of your morning routine to jump start your day. 

In today's episode we discuss:

  • Why you should be incorporating soul care rituals into your life for more peace and harmony.
  • How you can do a short, yet powerful intention and gratitude ritual every morning to set your day up for more joy and peace
  • The new moon and full moon cycles and specific rituals to honor and work with the energy of nature.  
  • Grounding and how it brings us into the present moment, along with ways you can incorporate this ritual into your day.
  • Mara's beautiful book, "Ritual As Remedy : Embodied Practices for Soul Care", along with her amazing retreats and more.
