Regardless of our religious beliefs, or lack thereof, many of us are seeking a greater sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. This group of caring individuals can help you establish a sense of belonging in a busy and hectic world. 

Ritual brings order, harmony, and focus into our lives. It aligns our intentions with our actions. Ritual helps with getting clear on our intentions, whether you are releasing your past, planning your day, or visualizing a successful future. It is for everyone and can be as simple as making yourself a cup of coffee in the morning or writing in a journal before bed. Ritual is an effective way to connect with our higher purpose (A.K.A. “higher power”), with or without religion or dogma.
Ritual isn’t just a bunch of WOO WOO, there is science behind it and why it works. Aleshia Jex brings the evidence-based science into the conversation while Laurie Knowley focuses on the creative states and functions of ritual, together they form a team that can assist you in bringing reverence and special meaning to your chaotic life. 

We truly are what we repeatedly do, so we need to be clear about how we are setting up our lives. It is worth it to create your life with your unique intent. 

Aleshia Jex Simpson


My name is Aleshia Jex Simpson. I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I have had an interesting journey that is full of wonder. I received my first degree in visual arts and became a freelance photographer. I received my second degree as a Rec Therapist and a Positive Psych certification from the University of Utah. I also spent several years as a Corrections Officer, some time as a Recreation Specialist at Snowbird Resort, and a few years doing respite care for the disabled. I was a major player in the development of Redemption Art and ARxT. Both are nonprofits that use art as therapy. I have successfully completed two internships. One with Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation Adaptive Program and another with Recovery Ways Substance Abuse Treatment Center. I chose Recreational Therapy and Positive Psych so I could continue assisting people in their holistic wellbeing and for myself because they fulfill an intrinsic desire to share the adventure.  I love to hike, camp, be outside, play, create, travel, and most of all inspire others to fulfill their individual goals to a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lifestyle.  I hope you will someday join me on my adventures.
