Ceremony can be a prayer of thanks.  And it can be a howl of grief.

Some of the most stunning ceremonies I have been privileged to hold have arisen very organically from the lives of those who come to me.

When people have come to me, what we have often done, is spend a whole day together, walking, talking, laughing and wondering about the wonders and vicissitudes of life.  Together we explore where we are right now, and how a Ceremony might be the perfect way both to fully honour that place, and to welcome in the next step.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”30″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””/][fusion_text]Artwork by kind permission of ColourWheel[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
