Honoring Life’s Transitions and Rites of Passage

Ceremonies mark the changes in our lives and give us a moment to pause, reflect and celebrate our truths. Creative, personalized ceremonies are an opportunity to honor ourselves as individuals and give voice to the connections between human hearts.

We live in a global society and are creating multicultural families and communities. We can celebrate our diversity and affirm what is important to us by taking time out to re-envision and re-create traditions that honor our lives.

To honor all of life’s transitions and rites of passage, or to create rituals for healing, sustenance and support, contact me.

Let’s talk!

I’d love to hear more about your plans. Whether your vision about your ceremony is certain or unclear, let’s brainstorm together!
