There are hundreds of small moments of change and transformation in our lives that very often aren’t fully recognised or celebrated because they are deeply personal and sometimes painful.
Change is rarely an easy thing; even the most desired changes come with their own share of uncertainty, worry and impatience. Living through a change or with the desire for change to occur can be a heavy burden, particularly in a world where we are encouraged to have everything we want now, now now!
For these moments I offer Intuitive Ceremonies.
In this instance ‘intuitive’ describes the process I go through to craft a ceremony that meets the deeply personal needs of each situation. I will create and hold a space for you to explore, acknowledge and encourage the changes and desires that are present with you at this particular time; working with a mindful and compassionate awareness to embrace the truth of the moment. More than any of my other ceremonies, these are the most personal and unique.
It might be a time when you feel the need for change, for growth or perhaps a need to act when all avenues seem closed to you; an Intuitive Ceremony can be a powerful and meaningful way to experience your connection to life and your Self more deeply.
- You are trying to have a child and hold a ceremony to acknowledge the strength of this desire
- A relationship has broken down and you choose to hold a ceremony to honour the past and move into the future
- You are uncomfortable in your workplace and yearn for something different, but don’t know what; you hold a ceremony to honour that feeling and encourage change
- Your life feels comfortable and safe and you wish to celebrate and be grateful
- Your commitment to a movement or cause needs to be acknowledged and upheld
There are no limits to the reason behind an Intuitive Ceremony; if you feel that something needs to happen and you don’t know what, ceremony might be the answer.
I offer two types of Intuitive Ceremony:
- In-Person Ceremony
As with most of my other ceremonies we will meet and discuss the intentions behind the ceremony and I will then go away and take the time to craft something unique and suited based on what we have discussed.
We will then meet a second time, in a location of your choosing, and together perform the ceremony. As Celebrant I am there to hold the space, to help the ritual flow and to give you as much or as little encouragement as needed to embrace the experience. Your involvement may be quite active or quite passive depending on your need.
2. DIY Ceremony
Following an in depth phone or email conversation, detailing your needs and intentions for the ceremony, I will take the time to craft a thoughtful and unique ceremony that can be performed without my presence.
The ceremony script you receive will have clear instructions on what to do and when, any objects or tools that may be required and can include set text to be spoken or spaces for you to speak your own heart. You will also receive a simple list of tips on how to make the most of your experience.
This option allows you to explore ceremony as a personal and self-led experience, without the added cost and presence of a Celebrant.
You will receive the ceremony script in one of two ways:
- a downloadable PDF that you can print out at home and use as a ‘working copy’
- a downloadable PDF that can be printed to use as a ‘working copy’ and
a paper ‘presentation’ copy that can be kept for future reference and as a reminder of the experience
The content of these ceremonies is limited only by the imagination. Each one is crafted using my experience and your own needs combined, to create a space that is safe and supportive for the heart to be known.
