What Is a Life-Cycle Celebrant?
Certified Life-Cycle Celebrants® are funeral and wedding officiants, ceremonialists and ritualists who have dedicated themselves to understanding how ceremony, storytelling, and ritual can vitally serve our lives. Certified Celebrants, educated through the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, have coupled their passion for ceremony with rigorous training in faith traditions, mythology, and the art of ceremonial writing and speaking. Regardless of whether a ceremony originates from a secular, spiritual or religious point of view, Celebrants collect gems of information from their clients, collaboratively design the structure of the celebration, and then craft a personalized ceremony to uplift, inspire and deepen the meaning of the moment.
Celebrants are Ceremony Specialists. They have studied the history, theory, principles and concepts of ritual – the foundational tools that make for a significant event. Celebrants are also savvy questioners. They take great care and time with their clients during the interview process. As a result, this shared experience brings forth the story (the hallmark of a Celebrant Ceremony), builds rapport, and grounds a sense of trust in the ceremony’s development. This first-hand level of attention is a distinctive feature that Certified Life-Cycle Celebrants bring to the creative table of ceremony making.
Many life events can become a milestone worthy of honor. Here are some ideas to consider for Celebration: Birth/Adoption/Baby Naming; Mother Blessings; Parenting; Weddings and Civil Unions; Animal Tributes; LGBQT+ Ceremonies; House Blessings; Retirement; Business Launches; Coming of Age; Croning Ceremony; Living Funerals; Seasonal Celebrations; Forgiveness; Conscious Divorce; just to name a few!
May your next ceremonial occasion be given the focused attention it deserves!
