Refuah Shleimah: A Healing Ritual Marking a Year of Pandemic

Hosted By: Ritualwell

When the World Health Organization first declared the coronavirus global pandemic, on March 11th, 2020, our lives changed forever. We have collectively experienced loss, illness, fear, and uncertainty. We have been forced to adjust to a new reality and felt the psychological effects of isolation and changed routines. And we have barely had time to process this radical shift in our lives, as we struggle to meet new challenges each day.

Join Ritualwell to mark the one-year anniversary of the pandemic with a ritual to hold our losses and create hope for healing. Participants will mourn those they have lost, pray for those who are sick, acknowledge the changes in their lives, express gratitude for the vaccine, and set intentions for better days to come.

You will create a shared ritual through prayer, poetry, and music. Attendees are invited to actively participate by bringing names of those you want to memorialize, names of those who are sick, and names of essential workers, doctors, and scientists you want to lift up.

The first 50 registrants will receive a free Ritual Kit in the mail to use as part of the event. The kit includes a yahrzeit candle, lavender bag, sweets to taste, a laminated print out of Trisha Arlin’s handwashing blessing, and an art print by Sonia Gordon-Walinsky. This event is free and registration is required. Register by Feb. 18th to ensure you receive your Ritual Kit in time.
