Ceremonies

 

I have found that ceremony calls in tremendous joy, healing and opens up even more room for connection with the Divine (there are many definitions of the Divine as far as I am concerned). I am available to help you craft ceremonies, lead guided meditations, delve into journey work to other realms and create sacred space.

The Alchemist's Kitchen is often a place that I can be found leading moon ceremonies and giving mini, intuitive readings.

Please see upcoming for more information.

I have found great joy in officiating weddings. I meet with you and yours three times leading up to day of the wedding, helping you to craft the layout of the day, finding out what is important to you and making space to call in your team of guides for assistance. On the day of your ceremony, I am available to help you hold space, give you room for your own space and, of course, lead the ceremony and pronounce you married! My style as an officiant is warm, open and I also allow room for humor. Please connect with me if you would like more info.

This is an example of a moon ceremony:

Recollecting the Pieces of Ourselves

New Moon in Gemini

7:15 - 8:45 PM EST | 4:15 - 5:45 PM PST

With the sun, moon and Venus in Gemini we will use this ceremony to explore the different aspects of ourselves. Gemini is a fun-loving, air sign associated with wit, impulsivity and intelligence. There is a depth there as well that can be overlooked if you pass by Gemini too quickly. Gemini can swiftly perceive multiple understandings of one situation. The twins remind us of all the aspects of ourselves at work both above and below the surface.

 

We all have many facets and a deeper dive into different pieces of ourselves can help us understand which aspect of ourselves is making decisions for our lives. Perhaps it is a part of ourselves we want to be out front such as an artist or inner teacher or perhaps it is a piece of us such as the inner saboteur that might be in the way of us living out our dreams. Consciously knowing and thus deciding who is in charge leads to great healing and transformation.

 

During this time Venus is retrograde, on her Underworld journey to visit the depths of her most bare, vulnerable and therefore powerful self. Venus rules love, beauty, an aspect of resources and what our priorities are. Retrograde invites us to revisit our stories about ourselves and love, our early experiences, inherited belief systems. What no longer serves us? How is our relationship to pleasure ready to be renewed? What passions are ready to resurface to be lived? How can you reclaim yourself and welcome your r/evolution?

 

The date of the ceremony is 5-22-2020 which equals 13 and 1 + 3 = 4 and the fourth chakra is the heart chakra, which we will connect with through the help of Goddess Akhilandeshwari and Goddess Gyhldeptis. They meet us at the crossroads of heartache and overwhelm which has been one piece of the global experience during this pandemic. Goddess Akhilandeshwari reminds us that we are never broken because we are always broken open and reemerging from old selves. Goddess Gyhldeptis invites us to stay calm when the current is strong and use the resources around us to find our wholeness.

 

Through guided meditation, channeled messages, writing prompts, heart chakra exploration, archetypal knowledge and with Reiki supporting us, we will journey together as the new moon expands in Gemini to release outmoded thinking, revisit what we are passionate about recollect ourselves. Bring a pen, journal, sense of humor, crystal friends (if you have them) and your full presence.
