Weddings & Binding Ceremonies

So you are joining lives! How wonderful.

Weaving lives together, birthing that third soul of partnership, begins long before the ceremony itself. My job is to help you stay focused on what you need, to offer my resources and experience and facilitate your process to help you create the personal, joyful celebration you deserve.

We’ll explore options. I will ask you about yourselves, what’s important to you, your aesthetics, and the cultural influences in your lives, your spiritual approach and family concerns. I’ll put together a template for the service in response.

I have officiated weddings that run from a sweet ten-minutes in the park with family, a funky, existential wedding over a museum diorama of NYC, on the beach as dolphins swam by, through simple elegant formal drawing room ceremony to elaborate ritual in a traditional church or sacred kiva. And I would love to work with you..

Funerals and Memorials


Nothing is more personal. And nothing can be harder to put together under times of stress. A family and community are transformed, and yet the very process of honoring the deceased, as well as the grief and traditions of the family and friends they come from, can be healing. I believe in finding a kind and gentle place between what the deceased wanted, how they needed to be remembered, and what the surviving family wants and needs. We can perform a simple memorial service or graveside funeral, to a more elaborate funeral or memorial service as fits your unique situation and beloved. I will be happy to help you write the obituary if needed. I will ask you about what your beloved wanted, did they leave any specific requests? What was their spiritual path, their personal and musical tastes, what did they love. I will ask about the spiritual paths and needs of the attending family members, and what would bring them comfort. Some people prefer not to have a single eulogy, but to allow several family members or friends speak or just open the floor to memories. Others find a single eulogy comforting as it allows those attending to just experience and feel, and not worry about what they, or anybody else, are going to say..

Ceremonies and Blessings

Rites of passage for any major turning point that needs honor, grace and support.

Ceremonies can ease our way from one phase of our life to another, help us set our intention and call in our personal and spiritual resources to bless a new place or process in our life. We can make the blessing so subtle the guest think they are at an ordinary house warming, work with a modest, informal ceremony, or drop into deep ritual. I’ll ask what you want to invoke, ask about your traditions and ideas, and then weave your unique offering.

  • ~ Blessingways for pregnant woman or burgeoning project.
  • ~ Coming of Age ceremonies (if the child/adult agrees).
  • ~ Separation ceremonies to change relationship paths with love and respect.
  • ~ Releasing ceremonies for when person, place or idea needs to be released to make room for the future.
  • ~ Queen-ceremony at the end of menopause.
  • ~ Croning or Eldering to offer honor as a person steps into wise-one role later on.

Spiritual Counseling


Spiritual Counsel is not therapy, though it can be therapeutic. Sometimes it just helps to feel heard. Together we create a spacious, non-judgmental place for you to safely reflect on your life’s issues with Spirit in mind and in heart.

We work within the parameters and symbols of Spirit as it speaks to you, the symbols of your path, and bring our attention to the movement of Spirit in your life. We may pray together, explore your chart to help you return to yourself, or put together simple rituals that support your process.

I listen, I ask questions and mirror back, and let Spirit do the work. We can meet once, a few times around a crisis or transition point, or regularly while you need it. I leave it up to you..

Baby Name Ceremonies


are a way to honor the sacred power of a new life, their connection to Spirit, and your intentions to bring it up in a way that honors hers or his soul and soul-path. It invokes protection, implicitly or explicitly, for the new one and offers a chance for your family, friends and community to welcome your child into the world and promise their support.

Adult Re-Naming Ceremonies


is a way of making the end of an era in a life, cleansing and sanctifying yourself in the present, and initiating a new path for the future. I do not baptize a being into any particular faith (for that you need to return to the church or temple in question) but into the path of Spirit.
