Ceremony is about honoring and celebrating that which is sacred to us and has deep heart and meaning in our lives. Ceremonies help us commemorate significant milestones on our life path. Each ceremony I facilitate is unique in nature, curtailed to honor the intention, vision, and important spiritual tradition(s) of the client. As a ceremonialist, creating a ceremony that truly reflects the individual, couple, or community and their vision for their special celebration is truly an honor and a deep joy!
I am honored to offer the following ceremonies at this time.
According to Native American tradition, our name carries our destiny. This ceremony affords the opportunity for family and friends to gather to formally celebrate a baby’s presence in the world through honoring of his/her name and destiny. It is an occasion for parents, siblings, family, and friends to bless the baby and create a solid foundation of love and support. This ceremony is performed within one year of birth.
This ceremony celebrates the significant milestone of becoming an elder. It provides an opportunity for an elder to share the wisdom they have gained through life experience as well as their hope and vision for the future. It invites clarity and commitment to continue their contributions during their wisdom years. This ceremony commemorates and honors individuals age 60 years or older.
Weddings and commitment ceremonies are a ritualized process of acknowledging the sacred commitment of two individuals to enter the gateway of a shared life. This ceremony celebrates the foundation and commitments to a sacred love and partnership. It also blends ancestoral and spiritual traditions as well as family lineages to help support and guide the couple in their life journey together. I welcome multi-cultural and interfaith ceremonies, weaving together the foundation of what is most meaningful for the couple. I believe in marriage equality and have experience facilitating ceremony of a same sex couple.
Funerals are an opportunity for the living to come together to honor and celebrate the life of their dearly departed one. It is an opportunity to gather in community to share the process of grieving and healing as well as affirming the legacy of the loved one in the life of those who live on.
