Why Ceremony? 


Since time immemorial, people have come together to mark significant life transitions through ceremony and ritual.

In today’s fast-paced, diverse and more secular society, many age-old traditions honouring life’s important thresholds have been abandoned. Those occasions that we do gather on – such as baby showers, graduations, weddings, and funerals – are often impersonal and lacking depth. And yet we continue to crave the meaning-making, connection, and community that a thoughtfully planned and conducted ceremony can offer us.

Ceremony comforts those who are grieving, and offers sustenance to those who are in transition. Ceremony strengthens communities while honouring important beginnings and hard-won endings. Put simply, ceremony can be transformative. I love working with people who want to pause in order to reflect, honour and celebrate life’s many milestones.

Done well, ritual and ceremony move you through a gateway from one chapter of your life to the next.

 
 

The skillfully integrated music, readings, story, symbolism and choreography of good ceremony have the effect of integrating the transition in our lives and equipping us for the next stage of our journey.

 

Every life, every love, and every milestone has a singular story to tell. 

I would love to bring your story alive through meaningful ceremony.
