NEW HOME BLESSINGS, BABY BLESSINGS & OTHER IMPORTANT LIFE PASSAGES
The beauty of being a “family minister” for individuals and families with all kinds of different spiritualities is that I get to really know you and be there for all of the important life events that you’d like me to help officiate or be a part of.
With blessings and passages, we are working with defining moments in life when you step from one important chapter to the next. To mark these transitions with ceremony magnifies the meaning of the event and facilitates you to integrate the old and welcome in the new. Plus it’s just plain old fun to acknowledge your big moments with intention and love.
To get started, I spend time getting to know you and discovering what this passage means for you and how you'd like to experience it, then I write the recipe for a ceremony that is fully personalized and speaks to who you truly are. The ceremony can incorporate spiritual elements that fit with you, or it can simply be meaningful.
Blessing ceremonies are all about celebration, new beginnings and setting your intention for how this new story will unfold. They can be anything you want them to be, plus I can advise about what can be done during these kinds of ceremonies if you’d like ideas as we plan the ceremony together.
It is a powerful thing to recognize an important life passage, and to consciously step from the old into the new while honoring where you've been and setting intentions for who you are becoming. Together we tailor-make a ritual or ceremony that is perfect for you. I can create and facilitate the ceremony or simply help you create it so that you can implement it yourself…
Divorce Ritual or Parting Ceremony
Age passage - sweet sixteen, teen to young adult, mid-life, etc
Personalized, meaningful birthday rituals
A big move or direction change in life
Fees for the above-listed passage rituals or ceremonies: We'll meet over the phone or in-person so that I can get to know you and vision the ceremony with you, then I'll write the ceremony and come officiate it - for this whole process, the fee is $250. If you'd rather have me write the ceremony and then you facilitate it yourself, we'll still meet and then I will instead send you the ceremony with support instructions - the cost for this process is $150. A modest travel fee applies for any location farther than 30 miles from my Boulder, CO home base.
Extra Perk: Once I’ve worked with you, I consider myself available to you as your “family minister”, and I give you ongoing no-charge access to my weekly office hours for spiritual support by phone - after the wedding and for the years to come (more on my office hours and spiritual counseling here).
I look forward to doing a meaningful ceremony with you! To talk about the blessing or passage that you'd like to do, please call/email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-842-4321, or use the contact form below.
Much love, Lisa
