I choose to dedicate my life to ceremony, as ceremony is a deeply sacred act.
Ceremonies offer us a structure to understand and then integrate the ways our lives change: when we leave adolescence, marry, have children, reach eldership, and die. Every life transition presents us with an opportunity to see our live in a different way, and to make changes from that new point-of-view.
Intentional ceremonies are all about people celebrating: celebrating their life events; celebrating the community they live within, and even celebrating the earth they live upon.
And everybody is welcome in ceremony.
I envision a future where a young person marks their 18th birthday in a special and unique way that is empowering, with their community around them; where a woman enters menopause with joy and her community marks this movement to eldership with honour; where another woman is preparing to give birth in the days ahead, and her whole family is gathered around her to offer their strength and hope for the journey she is about the finish.
Without ceremony, these poignant moments in our life are forgotten, and all we have left behind are days and days of “work” and years of grey tedium. But when we take a step fully into those life experiences, when we actively seek to gain insights & understandings, we gain essential awareness’s about ourselves.
I offer a vision of a world where people’s uniqueness is celebrated. Where a couple of the LGBTIQ community are as blissfully wed as a couple who are celebrating their pagan beliefs; where women drum for hours during the birth of their friend, and another woman sits quietly in trance while she gives birth; where a community remember one who has died in a way that is passionate, powerful & sacred.
Where we celebrate our sacred lives through ceremony.
With over 10 years experience, and as a qualified and registered Marriage Celebrant, to each unique ceremony I bring:
- A passion for ceremony & a wealth of ceremony experience
- Authenticity, honesty, patience, respect & understanding
- A creative heart & an organised mind
- A sacred outlook to life & openness to spiritual expression in ceremony
