TO HANDFAST MEANS "TO FORMALLY PROMISE"

During a handfasting ceremony, a cord, representing the intentions of their union, is tied around a couple's joined hands. The fasting of hands binds these intentions, as well as shared values and beliefs. The cord then represents their committed union.

 

Handfasting is a centuries-old tradition with Celtic roots. In fact, this is where the saying "tying the knot" comes from.

 

A Handfasting Ritual can be included as part of a wedding, commitment or renewal ceremony.

Vow Renewal Ceremonies

REFRESH YOUR COMMITMENT AND SET NEW INTENTIONS FOR YOUR LIFE TOGETHER

 

Our relationships change and evolve over time, and with it we can feel called to set new vows, devotions or intentions for our marriage or partnership. Likewise, we as people change and grow, and perhaps your original wedding ceremony did not speak to the spirituality or lifestyle that is true to your authentic self.

 

If you're already married or in a long-term committed partnership and are seeking a renewal, this offering is the perfect way to bring validity and more formal symbolism to this commitment renewal. 

Unsure how to put on such an event in a way that your friends and family will understand? This does not have to be a grandiose affair or read as a "second wedding" (though of course it can be!) and as part of this offering, I will coach you on how to name/present the event to your community, so that they understand the nature of the event they're being invited to.

Baby Welcoming/Blessing Ceremony

GATHER WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO BLESS AND WELCOME YOUR CHILD TO THE COMMUNITY

​Welcoming your child into your community is often a rites of passage that is reserved solely for those who participate in organized religions. With this offering, I will perform a crafted Baby Welcoming ceremony that formally and beautifully welcomes your child as a member of your community. 

During this event, one or more Guide Parents may be named for your child. These are people who will guide your child on their spiritual and/or life path. A formal ritual to bind the Guide Parents will take place. 

Additionally, you have the option of hosting a RITUAL INTENTION STATION that allows your loved ones to engage in ritual and bestow blessings and wishes upon your child.
