Soul Song Ceremonies
I am available for online ceremony creation in this time of physical distancing.
Although we are keeping physical distance for the common good,
let us find ways to tend to spiritual and emotional connections, which we especially need in times of upheaval.
Do you have upcoming milestone moments in your life? Contact me to work with you to create a personalized, fully customized ceremony to commemorate your important life events.
Weddings, baby blessings, house blessings, retirements, any moment along your life path that wants to be marked by and tended to with loving ritual.
As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, I look forward to working with you to create a meaningful, perhaps even transformational, ceremony that reflects who you are and
what is most important to you.
Prices and process available on request.
Website with more information coming soon.

10:00 AM – Noon
Rituals are all around us, some obvious (weddings, for example), some not so apparent (your morning routine, perhaps). Some rituals are intentional, and some accidental. Ritual is often associated with church, and many faith traditions are steeped in ritual. But ritual is bigger than religious practice, and certainly not limited to religion.
Good ritual honors our personal story while simultaneously placing us into the bigger story of Life. In our time together, we will explore the meaning and components of ritual and ceremony. We will also take a look at some of the rituals that have been meaningful in our past, and notice which still have meaning today. In addition, we will take a look at the milestone moments in your life and you will have a chance to begin creating a ritual for one that is upcoming.
An Invitation to Sacred Silence
April 24-26, 2020
We invite you into a welcoming space of sacred silence, a sacred space that we will create together across the miles and through the ether. A sacred space needed now more than ever.
Perhaps you are feeling a Divine nudge or invitation? These days of spacious silence, interspersed with opportunities for Zoom video conference connection with others, are for you to pray, reflect, rejuvenate, and rest. It can be a time of stepping into a rhythm that opens you in new ways to God’s presence in your life and God’s invitations to you – even in this time of upheaval. Although worldwide we are now practicing physical distancing, in this retreat time we will practice and, with grace, experience, social and spiritual connection. Given our upended rhythms of life, you may think this time is not possible for you right now. We hope you will feel free to step into this retreat just as you are. There will be written material that will help you honor the retreat while at the same time tending to the needs at home.
There will be some light structure to our days. We will meet several times a day for Quaker worship and structured prayer. You will also have a time to meet with Mary Kay in spiritual direction – an opportunity to reflect on what is arising for you during the time of retreat. The sacred silence and the slower rhythm are gifts to be opened to. We hope you will join us. Your gift awaits.
