Change of Life Ceremonies
Ceremonies for a change of life can change your experience of it for the better. There are many important change of life ceremonies that we have unfortunately lost. Jade is happy to work with you to create a ceremony as unique as you, or your family member (blood or chosen). These include coming of age ceremonies, end of relationship ceremonies, transition ceremonies (for trans and non-binary people), as well as death and grief ceremonies.
What is missing from a lot of counseling is some form of spiritual care. Most counseling removes and ignores that portion of the person. As a social worker and clergy member, Jade will be pursuing legal registration as a counselor. Currently this service is not yet available.
