“The currency of wellness is connection” ~ John W. Travis
Reclaiming the Heart of Ritual
There is a great longing within each of us.
We long to know our souls…and share them. We long to experience our selves in relationship with other people. We long to belong….connect…grow.
It is our birthright to live a life rich with connection, vitality and fulfillment.
How do we do that?
One way we as humans have aligned with our birthright to connect, grow and thrive…since time immemorial…is through Ceremony. Ritual.
The idea of ceremony is not a new one of course. Historically, ritual, art and life were interwoven.
So many of us have a deep need to reclaim ritual, to reconnect with the heart of its essence: that is – honouring and commemorating those big moments in life.
Threshold n. The Point where a new era of experience begins. ~Encarta World English Dictionary
When we create authentic ceremony, we experience a powerful unfolding of the threshold we are embarking on. Ceremony brings living, breathing cohesion to the transitions we are in the midst of.
We all go through periods in our lives that are heightened times of change. I call these ‘threshold times’: a time when we are moving from one phase into another, or when key life events occur like marriages, births, loss, deaths, separation or divorce, moving, retirement, graduating, career change, illness or accidents, loss of job, ‘empty nest’, spiritual emergencies /“dark nights of the soul”, or key decision making times in your life.
As well as offering counselling for individuals, couples and families during transitions, I also offer ceremonies. Ceremony serves to bring not only support and context in the midst of these shifts, but also the reverence, respect and attention these important times in our lives deserve.
You are the Inspiration
I see creating your unique ceremony like co-creating a work of art with you. And I mean that whole-heartedly. With a professional background in the arts, I bring great skill and respect for the process of creating a thoughtful, touching, meaningful piece. The palette of colours? Your own combined ideas, faiths, traditions, values and beliefs.
Marking thresholds with integrity and grace is my specialty. The energy I bring to this process is fresh, vibrant, and genuine.
