A collection of the poetry, music, readings, songs & inspiration that we joyously share in our ceremonies.
Offered with appreciation & gratitude:
In this ceremony we will sit with what makes life meaningful to us, exploring our relationship to uncertainty and the unknown.

entering / the silences / and chambers / of the heart / to start again.
Can we find a way of being with our vulnerability that gives it all the space it needs? Can we step into tenderness with whatever is arising in and around us?

“Life is a balance between holding on and letting go.”
May we be forgiven for what we have forgotten / and blessed with the remembrance / of who we really are.

And the most you can do is live inside that hope.'

"There is a brokenness / out of which comes the unbroken / a shatteredness / out of which blooms the unshatterable."
