Human beings LONG to Connect
One of the most beautiful aspects of our human lives is how we long to connect with the people we love. Especially around the BIG moments. That’s why we celebrate our weddings, the birth of our children, and it’s why we hold memorials and funerals. We also quite naturally yearn for emotional richness and symbolism when it comes to these consequential experiences. For some people this is very conscious and for others it is an unconscious longing… something they can’t quite name or put their finger on. In our fast-paced society, many people no longer truly ‘get’ the profound opportunities ceremony and ritual can offer our hearts. And so they either do nothing, or go through the motions with a perfunctory standardized ceremony. What a shame.
Ceremony should be Transformational. It should be a Catalyst.
A well-thought out and lovingly conducted ceremony takes you through a gateway. In it you metaphorically move from one phase of your life to the next. One way of being into another. For instance, a wedding ceremony is not merely saying, “I do.” A wedding ceremony should be transformational. A catalyst that turns two individual lives towards one that is shared.
When you work with Modern Celebrant in ceremony, you’ll see that we don’t make up rituals; we re-imagine and breathe new life into them. Modern Celebrant is about creating emotionally expansive experiences that reflect your personality, style, and values. Mass-produced ceremonies are not our thing. Celebrant Michele Davidson is pioneering what she hopes will be a massive shift to elevate ceremony in our fast-paced society.
To hold ceremony up to be the sacred experience it once was…when ceremony actually meant something…when ceremony had the power to inform, awaken, transform, and heal.
Because it does! And when we experience a ceremony of truth and beauty, what stays with us is how we felt. The expression on a loved one’s face. Transformational ceremonies awaken us to the poetry and mystery of our human lives. This is why we at Modern Celebrant are passionate about helping you to access meaning through the different chapters of your life.
Your ceremony will be alive with a sense of personal symbolism. It will reflect who you are and what you believe. You will be powerfully moved and remember it forever. And so will your friends and family!
