Lost Species Day 2021: Interdependence Ritual with Bea Xu
30 November 2021
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Join Bea Xu on Lost Species Day for a ritual inspired by the theme of ecological entanglement and webs.
Having initiated an online ritual offering last year during the winter lockdown, Remembrance Day for Lost Species is glad to repeat this practice. We’re delighted to announce the return of transpersonal* ritual practitioner Bea Xu to hold the space for this year’s Lost Species Day.
Bea will facilitate a ritual inspired by the theme of ecological entanglement and webs – calling in the networks that exist across the elements of air, fire, water and earth. Participants will be supported to explore the Lost Species Day tenth anniversary theme of Interdependence through the human and more-than-human relationships they weave; visible and invisible, at the planetary and microbial level.
Lost Species Day co-founders will introduce Bea and offer a short remembrance reading at the start of the event.
No prior experience or materials are necessary.
*The transpersonal is defined as “experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche or cosmos”.
