We design and provide services for personalized Rites of Passages for all of life's major transitions. We offer a conscious, intentional approach to designing and delivering personalized experience and ceremony, helping people internalize and let go of what was, prepare for what will be, celebrate and embrace what is.
We're a spiritual organization that embraces persons of all faiths, supporting and complementing rather than replacing existing institutional relationships.
Contact us if you would like to co-create a relevant, affirming experience for yourself or your loved ones to navigate or celebrate a major life event including coming of age ceremonies, spiritual initiations, weddings/unions, vocational transitions and commitments, "Blessing Ways" for expectant mothers or parents, birth or naming of new babies, adoption, divorce/uncoupling, surviving major health crises, end-of-life celebrations or funerals, and many more. Explore below for more information about some of our services and Celebrants that offer them.
Personalized Coming of Age Experiences
Coming of Age experiences are very important processes in terms of helping prepare our children (and sometimes even adults) for the next phase of their life. There are two traditional phases of coming of age: young teen 12-14 and older teen 17-19 and each phase confers unique responsibilities.
In addition to offering coming of age group programs, we design and deliver personalized coming of age experiences for individuals that allow for a high degree of personalization to ensure that the individual and their key family/community members get the most of the experience and are best prepared for the next phase. While this is often children as mentioned above, many adults in our society never did receive an intentional, effective coming of age and we happily design experiences for them too.

Life celebrations are excellent complements to or replacements for traditional funeral ceremonies and other life events. As certified Celebrants, we've been trained to design and deliver unique, personalized ceremony that truly reflects the essence of the person being remembered or celebrated. These celebrations can be planned in advance for yourself or for loved ones, and when done well they can be like throwing a party to celebrate their life rather than mourn their passing!

Blessing Ways for New Parents
Becoming a new parent is often a scary thing - after all, children don't come with instruction manuals! Beyond that, leaving behind the life of a person or couple without kids is a really big deal and many of us aren't adequately prepared for the major life change that becoming a parent will surely entail.
Our trained, experienced, and compassionate Celebrants will work with you, your family, and your community to design and deliver a Blessing Ways rite of passage for new mothers, new fathers, or both to help prepare the new parent for the big changes ahead and tap into the wisdom and love of the community to support them through this transition and beyond.
