Traditional Lao Blessing Ceremony
The Baci is a Lao ceremony used to celebrate a special event or landmark in one’s life. We can organise a ceremony for you and your group for a number of different occasions. It can be for anything from weddings, homecomings, leaving parties, birthdays, or any of the annual Laos festivals. The Baci ceremony is a popular celebration for every corner of Laos. The term most commonly used for the ceremony is ‘Sou Khuan’, which means ‘spirit enhancing’ or ‘calling of the soul’ and is intended to attract beneficial influences to its recipients. It works by bringing them back to one or more of the 32 souls (‘khouan’) that each human being possesses, according to the traditional Lao belief. The Baci ceremony can take place any day of the week and all year long, preferably before noon or before sunset.
Let us organise your very own personal Baci ceremony at NamKhan Project surrounded by the Donkeo village chief and its inhabitants. Our community is committed to welcoming you as a member of the family.
Important note: long sleeves and pants are both mandatory for the blessing ceremony.
