Ceremony is the original healing modality.

If you go back far enough, we all come from ancestors who practiced earth-based spirituality, who worshiped the divine feminine and sacred masculine, and used rituals as their primary source of connecting to their bodies, the land, and the spirit realm.

Your body and your blood remember this.

Are you ready to ignite the ancient wisdom that lives within?

Activate the ancestral wisdom in your blood memory...

A letter to you from Melanie...

Rituals have been part of our human experience for over 70,000 years. This is an ancient birthright woven into the very fabric of our souls.

So many of us ache for the gift of initiation, but we don't have access to the ceremonial traditions of our ancestors. This program is meant to serve as a space for you to receive a spiritually transformative experience in a way that is anchored into your unique spiritual linage and ancestral linage. You will create your own "brand" of spirituality, and learn how to bring this forward as a gift to the world.

By becoming a Ceremony Leader and Ritual Facilitator, you are stepping into a role that combines spirituality, leadership, and intuition. You will serve as a guide and catalyst for personal transformation, helping individuals tap into their inner wisdom and manifest lives filled with meaning and magic.

Within this program, we will work with a specific framework birthed from my own experience as a Master Self-Love Coach, Energy Healer, and Spiritual Teacher, along with the teachings of my great uncle, the extraordinary Heyoka Merrifield, a revered medicine man and shaman who initiated me as a ceremonial leader through a vision quest.

The sacred work we do together is a union of non-denominational spiritual traditions and universal spiritual tools.

I have worked with hundreds of people on their spiritual journeys, and facilitated countless transformations. One thing I know to be true from my decade of working professionally in the healing and wellness space is that ritual is greatly missing from our modern society, and this reclamation will not only change your life, but it will change the world.

At the end of this journey, you will be given a certificate as a Ritual Facilitator. This magical path will deepen your personal spiritual practice, embolden your confidence in guiding others through sacred experiences, and allow you to create a new sacred offering for your community.

The Initiation

Through our 13-week journey, you will be taught the 5-Step Ritual Framework curated by Melanie Monaco. This framework has been proven to be deeply transformative while also being efficient and simple enough to replicate in various circumstances - with individuals, groups, online, in person, in courses, workshops, family gatherings, and more.

Week One

You will be welcomed into this experience with an initiation ceremony. We will go over the course framework and training principles

Week Two

We will discuss the history of ritual and understand will explore how we show up as individuals by looking at sovereignty, ancestry, and appropriation. Through discussion and guided reflections, you will have a deeper understanding of your unique gifts.

Week Three

We will begin to understand the first step of our ritual framework, preparation, and you will learn the various tools you can use to not only prepare your sacred space but also to prepare yourself for facilitating transformative experiences.

Week Four

This week is looking at the second step of our ritual framework, which is Divination. We will explore divinatory tools such as oracle cards, tarot cards, intuitive development, scrying (think crystal ball!), and channeling.

Week Five

We will continue our discussion on Divination and will dive into a deeper exploration of your genetic lineage and your spiritual linage.

Week Six

We will explore our third step of our ritual framework - Interpretation. This step is all about bringing your unique voice, inspirational leadership, and channeling abilities to deliver the message received through divination in a way that resonates with your ritual participants. Divination is the message, interpretation is the delivery.

Week Seven

Through continuing our discussion on Interpretation, you will be guided through a series of meditations that you will learn how to utilize in your ritual practices.

Week Eight

We will look at all the different ways that we can guide ritual attendees (and ourselves) through integrating the ritual message and themes through practices like guided meditations, energy healing, breath work, and more. It is one thing to understand something cognitively, it's another to embody it. This step is what makes this specific ritual framework so transformative and powerful.

Week Nine

We will explore the way we close a ritual ceremony, care for ourselves as facilitators and practitioners, client/ritual attendee relationships, ethics, and basic sacred business practices. We will also talk about magical marketing tools so you can cultivate community for your professional Ritual Facilitator work.

Week Ten

This week we will begin to practice delivering rituals in community. This is part of your certification process, and through being held by the community, you will begin to bring your power forward as a Ritual Facilitator. We will continue the conversations about Interpretation and channeling, and have space for Q+A.

Week Eleven

This week we will continue to offer space for each attendee to lead us in a Guided Ritual, as is required for certification. There will be continued time for exploration and discussion of the unique themes and ideas present in our group.

Week 12

This week we will continue to offer space for each attendee to lead us in a Guided Ritual, as is required for certification. There will be continued time for exploration and discussion of the unique themes and ideas present in our group.

Week Thirteen

Each attendee will be individually initiated and honored as a Ritual Facilitator. Through a sacred ceremony, together we will release any blocks or resistances keeping us from claiming our power as spiritual leaders. We will have room for deeper conversations, final questions, coaching, and community connection.
