The One About Ritual Making

Meet Viktor Lysell Smålänning

Viktor is a ritual maker who works with rituals as a powerful part of transformative processes, community building and culture change. He approaches the topic of ritual through a lot of directions; by creating art about it, studying it academically, engaging with it spiritually and by taking on the meaningful moments in life with self-made rituals. Since 2013, Viktor has lived in five countries and worked with clients all over the globe on his journey to make sense of how to engage with rituals in the modern world.

Viktor has just opened an Instagram account so you’ll be able to find him over on @howtomakerituals in the near future!

Fav quotes from this episode:

“Without belonging we’re fucked.”

“Ritual is a human process that can really facilitate a shift.”

“How do I feel today? What is my intention?”

 “Ritual holds a huge potential for shifting ourselves in relation to what’s going on, and really finding some honesty and some truth about ourselves and the situation that we find ourselves in.” - EA

“Christmas is a ritual on steroids.” – EA

In this episode we talk about:

  • How being fiercely independent without creating a community around you can leave you feeling isolated
  • How ritual can be a powerful tool to experiment with your own boundaries and to change and grow
  • The “before” and “after” time that exists in the context of ritual, and the transformation that lies in between those moments
  • How to ritualise everyday acts 
  • Acknowledging that Christmas can be challenging for a lot of people and how you can make it work better for you by creating your own rituals

Plus, we talk about Viktor’s personal journey to discovering the power of ritual.
