Personalized Rituals

Is there an wedding, funeral or other turning point that you would like to honor with a ceremony? Do you want an alternative to the traditional ones offered? 

Renee creates personalized rituals that provide you with meaningful, alternative ceremonies.

We create a sacred space, using symbolic words, sounds, objects & actions that touch the archetypal world of our collective unconscious, & we gain access to our shared experience on the planet, to our deeper selves, & to Spirit.

You do not need to follow a spiritual or religious tradition to have a meaningful & moving wedding, funeral or other rite of passage. Together, we can create a ceremony that uses symbols with personal significance for you.
