“Any serious attempt to try to do something worthwhile is ritualistic.” –Derek Walcott
Want a ceremony or ritual to dedicate and bless your new home or the land you love? What about a special service of welcome for your newborn that pulls from many faith traditions? Perhaps you wish to honor your loyal and loving animal companion? I can work with you to create a meaningful blessing ceremony that beautifully conveys your wishes for a child, pet, or your home or land.
Memorials & Funerals
The passing of a life into the next stage is just as important as a wedding or a birth. Death can be difficult for those who remain, yet I pledge to help you and your family create a service that celebrates the life of your loved one in a manner that reflects his/her personality and beliefs and one that honors his/her individual spiritual path. Services can be either simple or elaborate, yet all convey beauty and love.
Fees vary based upon your individual needs and desire as well as the complexity of your ceremony. Contact me today with your wishes and we can discuss rates in more detail.
The Value of Ritual
All spiritual traditions use ritual to engage the senses, to alert the participant that something sacred is about to occur. When we smell incense, hear a bell ring, light a candle and watch the flame flicker, our physical body is providing our emotions, our minds and our spirits with an opportunity to manage change in our lives.
Ritual can be celebratory or meditative, simple or elaborate. It is a method for manifesting what is often difficult to express with words, and it can add new and deeper depths to every life experience. Sharing rituals with family and friends creates stronger bonds of community and support that often last long after the ritual has ended.
