It seems to me that part of the traditions of cohousing which will be passed on to future generations will be our rituals. I am curious what sorts of things get celebrated in various communities and what sort of processes could become, or are rituals now. At Sharingwood one ritual we do is before every meeting there is time for personal check-in, where you can say whatever you want. Most of the time this is used by people just to say briefly what's up with them. Occasionally this has consumed the whole meeting. We celebrate the solstice with a fire and some readings. When certain trees are cut down on the common property we do a eclectic ceremony which involves readings and what ever else people want to do or say. The verdance of spring is celebrated on May day with baskets of flowers delivered by the children. What are your group rituals?
