Name Giving

Name giving ceremonies can be a beautiful and powerful way to honour the taking of a spiritual name, changing your name or reclaiming your birth name. There are any number of rituals or celebrations you may like to do to celebrate and honour such an event.

Commemorate and celebrate the new beginning you are giving yourself by taking your chosen name. Celebrate life and enhance your life journey with an individually crafted ceremony that reflects you, your beliefs and your personal journey. Together we can create a beautiful, life affirming ceremony for a name giving or name reclaiming.

For every ceremony, I take time to know you and individually design and write your ceremony. Your ceremony will be a unique, personal, meaningful and beautiful reflection of you, your needs, values, personality and life journey. I listen to you and with creativity, experience and passion help you create the perfect ceremony. I also have a range of resources you can use for inspiration.

The ceremony can be done alone, with a small support group or as a big celebration with family and friends. Each ceremony is individually crafted to reflect your love, your personality and your family. A beautiful Commemorative Booklet of the ceremony will be produced and given to you to keep. You will also receive a Commemorative Certificate on the day.

The ceremony on the day is the culmination of many hours of preparation, which is included in the price. I will meet with you at least once to listen to you and learn about you, to help us devise the perfect ceremony for your name giving. We can meet at my place or yours or at a mutually convenient place, we can even meet on Skype. To create your unique and personal ceremony we will be in contact as often as needed by phone, email, skype or google hangouts.
