Ceremonies Through the Life-Cycle
Whether large or small, happy or sad, all sorts of occasions are worth celebrating. Ceremonies give you an opportunity to pause and reflect in the midst of a busy life. They provide precious space to look around and really see. Ceremonies allow you to discover the heart meaning — emotional and spiritual — of events and of the moments you will never have again. They can bring families and communities closer together.
Among the many life-cycle ceremonies that I can create for you are:
As with other types of ceremonies I write and perform, when you call me we will begin with a complimentary meeting, where we can play with ideas and make sure that we will work well together. We then will have additional meetings or phone calls and e-mails to craft the ceremony. I will guide you at every step as together we discover the appropriate words and rituals to mark your special event.
Life-cycle ceremonies can be completely secular, or they can include spiritual or faith-based elements. Perhaps we will import some flavors from other cultures. You have the final say on everything in the script.
Once you approve, I will be there to officiate your celebration. These can be warm, enriching moments filled with love and meaning. They may be the beginning of a beloved tradition. What would you like to celebrate? Please contact me at Ceremonies of Heart for ideas.
