The Hoopla: Playful Ritual At It’s Best

ritual hoop Gretchen Wegner writes about a “Hoopla.” She writes, “A hoopla is a playful ritual designed to celebrate and affirm the hoops that we jump through in our lives. Last year at our housewarming party, we invited fellow revelers to decorate our hoola hoop (pictured). Whenever there is an occasion worthy of marking, my housemates and I improvise a hoopla. … It’s playful, unpretentious, and ultimately profound. In our household, most of our hooplas take less than 2 minutes. Each is unique. They often occur in the kitchen (where we share stories about our day while we cook).” Cynthia Winton Henry describes the first Hoopla in the video below:
