Family Ceremonies & Pastoral Care
Traditional old world hand-fasting ceremonies regularly feature on our calendar. We create and design a ceremony with you that is respectful of the sacred nature of your special day. There is always much beauty and lots of fun in the preparation and at the ceremony itself. We can facilitate your ceremony at a location of your choice, on the beach, in the woods, by a lake, in a hotel. Many couples do the civil wedding ceremony prior to the hand-fasting with Patrick.
Renewal of vows is also a very special event. A couple comes along after many or just a few years, wishing to renew their vows and to reaffirm their love for each other. Some like a private ceremony with just the shaman. Others want to create a renewal celebration with family and friends. We are with you whatever your choice is. (Cost from € 250 + Travel)
The naming of a child is a special event not only for Mom and Dad but also for the extended family and community. With Patrick's help sacred words, loving promises, poetry, music & magic can all be woven into this special event. Invite family and friends to celebrate with you as you formally give your child her or his name.
Your ceremony can take place at home, on a mountain, by the ocean or any other place of your choice. Over the years lots of sample ceremonies have been compiled and are free for you to peruse. (Cost €150 + Travel)
Care, support, guidance and healing at times of stress and fear is offered from the heart. Illness, divorce, loss of loved ones, miscarriage, end of life and other times of fear can be challenging. Spiritual support and practical help as well as healing are all regular features of Patrick's work.
Funeral services are beautiful, personalised and respectful events that can be arranged to celebrate the life of our departed loved ones.
