Barbara Biziou is an interfaith minister, motivational speaker, life-strategy coach through rituals.

In addition to creating rituals for both men and women going through all of life’s transitions, Barbara also creates these sacred experiences for businesses, Broadway productions and Non-profit organizations. She is the author of two books (The Joy of Ritual and The Joy of Family Rituals) and blogs for The Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Rewireme.com and What Now, What Next. She is on the faculty of AMA, One Spirit Interfaith and The New York Open Center, and has been featured in major publications including the NY Times, Oprah.com and Psychology.com.
