You're facing mortality (yours, or someone else's) and it's not easy.
You know that illness, death and loss are an important part of your spiritual journey.
You need help finding a healing path through these transformative experiences.
Take heart, you've come to the right place.
Support for families during an illness
Coming to terms with a diagnosis
Even if recovery is likely, a big diagnosis is a shock to the person who gets it, and to their family and friends.
An encounter with mortality is a chance to make a deeper commitment to life. A ritual is the perfect way to mark that commitment.
Adjusting to changes in health
A serious illness often involves loss, as our health and capacity changes. Adjusting to these transitions can be difficult, for everyone involved.
A ritual can help honour the significance of the changes, and help your souls to catch up to what’s happening.
Integrating your recovery
Returning to the world that illness took you away from is a big step. You’re alive, but the person you were has died.
Adjusting to the new you, is a profound soul task, and a personally designed ritual can help you navigate that rite of passage.
Support for families before or after a death
Practical and spiritual consultation and support
In the overwhelm that illness or death brings, how do you attend to everyone’s spiritual and emotional health?
I bring a stable and compassionate presence, and help you open your hearts more deeply to each other.
Officiating funerals and memorials
A successful funeral celebrates a person’s life, grieves their death, and allows everyone to transition to what’s next.
I can craft and officiate a meaningful ceremony that meets the soul needs of your family and community.
Each death is unique, and each brings up its own interpersonal, emotional and spiritual issues for those who are touched by it.
Whatever you and your family are experiencing, I can help you craft a ritual response. Even when things are hard, healing is possible.
Services for pets
Support for Children
If children are supported to meet early losses well, they develop good skills for meeting future deaths.
Our pets are members of our family. If your children are losing their beloved pet, I can help.
It can be difficult to know how to care for our our ill or aged pets, and one of the hardest decisions can be around if —or when— to euthanize.
If you’re walking your pet through their dying time and need some support, I can help you find your way through the hard decisions.
Pet Euthanizing Ceremonies
If it’s time to euthanize your pet, you want the process to be as sacred and loving as possible.
Working with your vet, I can facilitate a ritual to bring grace and peace to the experience. The process is never easy, but it can be met with grace.
Funeral planning and consulting
Supporting a dying loved one and planning a funeral are hard if you’ve never done it before. They’re harder still when you’re grieving.
If you’re in a position of responsibility around a death, I can help you understand and sort out your options.
Helping you walk your own path
If your spiritual values differ from your family’s, it can be hard to walk together through a death.
Perhaps you need a healing ceremony with friends who really understand you, or even just an ally on the end of the phone.
Healing unresolved loss from the past
Our souls don’t operate in clock time, and pain from years or decades ago can hurt as much today as it did then. Maybe a death was complicated, or there was no funeral, or not the right funeral.
Whatever the situation, I can help you sort out the feelings, and find acceptance and peace.
Integrating mystical experiences
Are dead people talking to you? Did you die and come back? Have you felt or seen a ghost? Does the veil feel thinner than usual?
If you’re experiencing things that don’t fit the ordinary map, I know that landscape well, and I can help you find your way in it.
Step Towards Healing
It's possible to meet illness and death in a way that brings solace to the soul, no matter what the outcome is for the body.
If you're dealing with an illness, or a past, present, or approaching death, please reach out. I can help you and your family find a healing path through the challenges.
