Ritual and Ceremony have been used by humans since the beginning of our species. They help us to mark the passage of time, honour the sacred aspects of life, reflect upon our experiences and dream a new world into being. In this great time of change and rapid evolution, ritual and ceremony can help us to honour what we have created in our lives, give thanks for the lessons, let go of what no longer serves and create a new dream. I personally use ritual and ceremony to give thanks, mark the turning of the seasons, release, integrate all aspects of myself and dream my world into being at new and full moons, powerful astrological events and transitions in my life. Each time I sit down to prepare a ritual/ceremony it gives me the opportunity to reflect upon where my life is at and where I have come since the last time I sat and connected with the divine within. Through this time sitting with myself I see patterns and habits that served me at one point and recognize I am ready to move on and through holding these lessons in gratitude I am able to accept them and transform them into a new level of being.
Each ritual/ceremony I create blends together shamanic, pagan, buddhist, yogic and other cultural practices that I have learned through my travels and studies. Astrological, universal, historical and cultural energies and beliefs will inspire each ritual/ceremony and help us to move through what we are being called to move through at the moment. Each ritual/ceremony begins with a grounding and centring, a calling in of the directions, our support team and spirits and will be composed of a mix of writing prompts, guided visualizations, drum journeys, movement, song and inspiration to help us all reflect, give thanks, let go, dream and transform.
Becoming a mother is a rite of passage that is not honoured in our culture as it is in many others. It would be my honour to help you mark this profound point in your life. Through ritual, ceremony, honouring, blessings, fear releasing, dreaming and strengthening, together with your friends and family we will prepare you for this journey.
Each ceremony usually lasts 3-5 hrs and is structured around the medicine wheel, a powerful map and container to hold this experience. I will custom create the ceremony with you and/or your chosen friend/family member to best support you and honour your personal beliefs.
Are you opening a new business and want to honour it?
A business blessing helps to set your dream into motion in the spirit world. By clearing the space, setting intentions and breathing, singing and chanting your dream into being, we call spirit in to your business and energetically draw the right clients in, while honouring all the people, places, spaces and energies that helped to bring your business to fruition.
$100 per hour, plus expenses. (A typical ceremony usually lasts between 1 and 2 hours)
From births to deaths, first menstruation to menopause, ending a breastfeeding relationship to heading out to college all of these are important transitions in one’s life. I’d love to help you to create a personal or group ceremony that honours what is happening in your life right now.
$100 per hour, plus expenses.
