My Philautia Ceremony

Philautia is the Greek word for Self-Love, and having actively striven for just that over a sizeable length of my journey, I held a sacramental rite in a public declaration of devotional dedication to my divine dharma.

At a location I find magical, I took vows to love, honor, and cherish myself, and I celebrated with loved ones my graduation beyond Self-Doubt and into Unconditional Self-Love.

Here is the captured moment of my Philautia Ceremony:

Synchronistically, I fumbled a line that was meant to be:

Acceptance of what is, including my perfectly human imperfections.

And so it is.
