Life Cycle Celebrants are graduates of the Celebrant Foundation and Institute. We study the art, meaning and creation of ceremony and ritual.
Before being accepted to study at the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, we undergo an evaluation of our written skills, as well as an independent evaluation of our presentation skills, vocal skills, and our ability to create and hold space.
During our studies we research different cultures and beliefs and learn how to gracefully weave values and symbols into the ceremonies we create. Wemake ceremony personal and know how to determine what’s appropriate and what isn't for each client. We learn how we can blend and mold elements making them relevant and meaningful to our clients. There is no perfect ceremony, but we know how to create a ceremony that is perfect for you. After graduating as highly-trained ceremony professionals, Life-Cycle Celebrants® adhere to a strict code of ethics and a nondiscrimination policy. This makes us stand out among other officiants as our clients not only receive the benefit of our training and experience, they also have our commitment to handle their ceremony in a very specific, personal, inclusive, and respectful way.
Ceremonies happen when people are at pivotal points in their life. We are trained to not just listen, but to hear our client's story. Each ceremony created and led by a Life Cycle Celebrant is a unique reflection of the rite of passage, transition or event being celebrated.
