Officiant and Gathering Artist

From marriage ceremonies to coming of age rituals, allow me to design and officiate your next important day. I wish to honor the meaningful moments in your life, or precious moments in the history of your community or your family.

I am currently attending United Theological Seminary in Saint Paul, MN in pursuit of my Master of Divinity in Social Transformation. I plan to become an inter-faith and universal minister. I am currently ordained through the Universal Life Church to perform legal ceremonies.

I am passionate about honoring the important moments, achievements, and changes that occur throughout all of our lives. I want to re-village the world by offering custom ceremonies, rituals, and gatherings that encourage us to support our community in ways that allow us to feel supported and empowered. We are allowed to get creative in order to meet our needs!

My ceremonies center around the belief that it takes a village to raise a child, and that villages are needed throughout our entire lives. Whether you belong to a church or spiritual community or not, you deserve to celebrate and grieve with a community of others.

Spiritual Roots

My spiritual offerings are not affiliated with any particular faith community. I believe that all religious practice draws from the same Divine essence, and therefor I feel liberated to create meaningful gatherings and ceremonies that center around customizing that Divine experience in that ways that feel most relevant to a person or group. I tend to use traditions and practices drawn from various Buddhist, Yogic, Christian, Native American, and Wiccan religious practices. Let us both honor the beauty of these ancient and historical traditions, while taking a modern approach that seeks to rid our traditions of sexism, racism, and all forms of shame and oppression of the soul and planet. Let’s design meaningful ceremonies, rituals, and gatherings together!

What it can look like:

  1. A grief tending ceremony. A gathering of familiar people or strangers to practice acknowledging grief through collective tears, music, meditation, and community.
  2. Youth coming of age gathering. Perhaps a ceremony for your daughter when she gets her period. Or a ceremony for your son to symbolize him becoming a man.
  3. An intimate ritual on your sober holiday.
  4. A marriage or love ceremony.
  5. A funeral to honor a loved one in the way they or your family wishes.
  6. A gathering with your friends to have fun and feel alive.
  7. A baby blessing or baptism.
  8. Build an earth mandala with your community, at a party, or as part of a ceremonial act.
