“When the ceremony was performed, we and all our guests were moved deeply. We have since sent it to friends and family who couldn’t attend the ceremony, and they have all raved about it. We cannot recommend her highly enough.”
Ceremonies for Times of Transition
Welcoming a child into the world or into a new family is an exciting and hopeful human event. Parents, siblings, grandparents and godparents can step forward with wishes for your child’s happiness.
The decision to end a marriage, no matter how right it may be for the people involved, also marks the beginning of a new life phase. Use a Divorce Ceremony to give the past its due, acknowledge difficult emotions, and move onward in life with healing and hope.
Coming of Age
Some young teens or pre-teens are interested in creating a more personal framework for considering their change of status from child to young adult. For them, and for families wishing to support them in this transition, a custom Coming of Age Ceremony can help them cross this pivotal life threshold.
Even if retirement is eagerly anticipated, what does it actually mean in our culture? Creating a Retirement Ceremony is an opportunity to think deeply about the next phase of life, and to bid farewell to patterns that may have defined your life for decades. Who are you when you are no longer identified with your career?
A new home needs a blessing, for health, happiness and growth. Here’s an opportunity to invite friends and family to wish you well, combining blessings and traditions from many cultures to truly warm a new dwelling.
Downsizing/Leaving a Longtime Home/Moving to Assisted Living
Just about everyone gets to a point when we need to let go of most of our “stuff,” and even our home. Saying goodbye can be a conscious and satisfying event for an entire family. Together, we can find ways to value the past and move into the future with a new perspective.
