Rituals are an expression of human existence and are as old as mankind.

Rituals describe predefined processes of action and communication that enable us to manage complex day-to-day situations. They provide a calming structure and a secure basis for life.

Rituals simplify the interaction with the world, by helping to make decisions or to regulate interpersonal communication.

Rituals enable the symbolic confrontation with the basic aspects of human existence, the pursuit for safety and order, the knowledge about our own mortality or the believment in a transcendent reality.
