an urban shaman and ceremonialist, I work with individuals, groups
of all kinds, companies, and municipalities to create meaningful,
non-denominational rituals for every conceivable occasion.
All sessions and ceremonies are personalized
and geared to the particular needs of each client. I create a
warm, compassionate, light-hearted, and supportive environment
that encourages participation and transformation.
For individuals and families, I can design
rituals for such joyful occasions as weddings, commitment ceremonies,
wedding and baby showers, baby blessings, adoptions, combining
of families, house cleansings and blessings, anniversaries, retirement
rituals, coming of age ceremonies, graduations, menarche, and
menopause. I also perform rituals to help with the harder times
of life, such as miscarriage, abortion, divorce, aging, illness,
surgery, conflict, impasse, loss of job, loss of pets, loss of
pregnancy, funerals, and memorials.
For businesses, organizations, and institutions,
I can perform rituals for office blessing, space clearing, energy
cleansing, trouble clearance, community building, stress reduction,
opening and closing ceremonies for conferences, ground breaking,
inauguration of new policies or products, and important company
Ritual is a sacred enactment through which

a basic human instinct. Ritual channels our need as individuals
to be part of something greater than ourselves.
People have a compelling urge to merge with

in us a visceral understanding of such universal paradigms as
unity, continuity, connectivity, cycle, and constant change.
Ritual is a symbolic manifestation of our
intention. It carries us past our analytical mind and allows us
to access universal consciousness directly and viscerally, through
Ceremony — solitary or shared —
offers us a way to relate intimately with the primordial force,
and to embrace that sacred power which informs and fuels all existence.
Ritual is our lifeline to the divine.
When we set aside quality time and claim
the psychic space for ceremony, we are able to transform our perceptions,
our perspectives, our experience, our expectations and, in the
process, our reality.
