where is ritual and ceremony in your life?
“”joseph campbell taught me that ritual and ceremony need not to be thought of as dogma or repressive… sure, history shows how ritual and ceremony is routinely abused and used for nefarious purposes… all good things have the potential to go too far…
however, there are times where ritual and ceremony don’t go far enough like during the days we live today… we are so fragmented, both bodily and psychically… we starve for spaces/places that orient us… that help us attribute meaning to an existence that is pulled in so many directions…
ritual and ceremony are meaning-making tools, helping us transcend our individuation… helping us suspend the personal pronoun “I”… ritual and ceremony help us connect to community by connecting the dots that we all share” — gino dante borges, ph.d.

‘ralph waldo emerson taught me that when faced with two decisions to pick the one you are most scared to do… if you pick the choice of least resistance, you postpone the inevitable message that is intended for you and you riddle your life with needless anxiety and stress… though initially awkward, digging into discomfort is the way to authentic, spiritual prosperity… this is the way of the wild self lifestyle’ — gino dante borges, ph.d.

what people are saying about ‘wild self’ teleconferences:
“Hello Gino. I just wanted to say thank you for the tele-conference last week. As I embark on a major life change, our discussion about holding on to self trust, even in the midst of doubt or others negative statements, has raised my level of conscious awareness around this topic. I really appreciated the interactive nature of the call and it greatly aided in the learning!” — Tommy Faricy in Portland, OR
