Building Rituals of Connection Cards
In his book The Intentional Family, Bill Dougherty discusses “rituals of connection” as an important tool for successful relationships. A Ritual of Connection is a method of ‘turning towards’ another person that is reliable and can be counted on. A Ritual needs to be thought out and planned: When? How often? Where? Who initiates? How will it unfold?
Another example of a Ritual of Connection is greeting each other at the end of the day. Will there be a hug? A kiss? Questions like, “What were your best moments today?”
Couples can decide which Rituals to include in their lives together using this exercise.
It’s the little things that build trust, friendship, and closeness. Each day brings new opportunities to connect! These cards help couples recognize and act on the moments that build intimacy in meaningful ways.
***The cards in this deck are also packaged with the live and take-home version of The Art & Science of Love couples workshop.
