Ceremony

Many people do not follow a formal religion, yet still need on some level to gather together to celebrate and honour the milestones of life: birth, marriage, death and other rites of passage. Image of a group of women performing ceremony

By celebrating and deepening our connections to our family, friends, society as a whole and ancestors, ceremony and ritual create opportunities to embrace life’s changes and improve our well-being.

At ShamanicPlanet we offer our expertise and experience as organisers, advisers or celebrants, to create ceremonies tailored for your situation.  Below are some suggestions of when ceremony might be appropriate.
