In addition to End of Life ceremonies, I also offer services regarding surviving other types of Loss, such as:


*End of Serious Illness,

*End of Work-Career,

*End of Relationships,

*End of Addictions.


Collectively, such ceremonies are called “Survivor Ceremonies.” And in life, we have much to survive:

  • Illness,
  • Divorce,
  • Domestic Partner Dissolution,
  • Death of a loved one,
  • Job Loss, Downsizing, Relocations,  & Retirements,
  • Overcoming Addictions (drug, alcohol, etc.),
  • Loss of Animal companions, and more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As we  learn to face, cope, and survive everything that life throws our way, having Ceremonies to Recognize Survival & Loss have become increasingly popular in order that we may continue to envision our possibilities in Life and move toward them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Survivor ceremonies are held at two key points:

  1. While you are going through the ordeal, such as a life-threatening illness.  This type of ceremony centers around thanking loved ones for their support and looking ahead to a better tomorrow.
  2. After you have come through a crisis, such as when a divorce is finalized.  This ceremony focuses on lessons-learned, analysis, and reflection.

Survivor ceremonies provide an opportunity for you to express yourself in a manner that is true to you and one that captures the essence of your survival.

By reaffirming the bond held with family and friends, there is a greater appreciation for your life, giving you the strength needed to face new challenges and future survival situations.
