Ritual and Ceremony for Women

Rites of Passage such as menarche/puberty, marriage, and pregnancy/birth are sacred moments in a women's life that deserve to be celebrated and honored in a special way. Let me help you bring ritual and ceremony to yours.

I gather the wisdom of my indigenous ancestral knowledge, the teachings of my grandmothers and traditional elders who have passed on these beautiful ceremonies, respectfully with their blessing I share these teachings in a good way.

Let's create a beautiful rite of passage ritual for you or a loved one. We could work together and co-facilitate or I could plan and facilitate the ritual with your guidance. Contact me to further discuss the details.

Let us help you with...

  • First Moon (girls coming of age)
  • Bridal Blessing (preparation for marriage)
  • Mother Blessing (preparation for motherhood)
  • Moon Pause (preparation for menopause)
