CEREMONIES FOR TRANSITION & HEALING

FUNERALS & LIFE TRIBUTE MEMORIALS: Nothing defines our humanity so clearly as the custom of gathering together to share in the loss of someone dear. In times of transition such as this, a sensitively crafted ceremony gives voice to grief, invites healing, and celebrates the life of someone significant to us. Whether you desire an intimate family memorial or one that expands to include friends, colleagues and community, I will meet with you in your home to sketch a "soul picture" and family story. We will discuss readings, poems and religious references if desired. I will work with you to create a unique and personalized memorial. I will be honored to write the eulogy, communicate with the funeral director, and conduct the ceremony on your behalf.

SURVIVORSHIP: Most of us at one time or another face health challenges that test our strength, resolve, and the very definition of who we are. Illnesses and their treatment, physical injury or surgery quite often reshape not only our physical identity but our emotional landscape as well. Marking these important passages with ritual enables us to re-frame these experiences and move more gracefully into a new way of inhabiting our physical body. Whether you are embarking on a new challenge or have come through to "the other side", together we can create a ceremony that facilitates courage, healing and celebration.

"Nothing is secure but life, transition, the energizing spirit" 
Ralph Waldo Emerson
