(Ceremony for “Letting Go”)

As you can see divorce is only 2nd to death of a spouse, and there are many smaller deaths within the death of a marriage. Through the difficult process of separation and divorce. When the hard legal work is complete, there is often an outfall of grief and loss, even in a welcomed parting.

As a woman who has experienced a divorce I understand the many losses that can come with this experience. I also benefitted greatly from my own unwinding of my marriage and a family ceremony acknowledging the change in our family unit. As a Certified Life Cycle Celebrant I offer unwinding ceremonies for individuals, couples and families after the process of divorce. Releasing our partner and ourself from the vows made during a marriage ceremony is possible and can be very helpful. Releasing our rings and sharing new vows of care and commitment with our children can be very healing.

Family ceremony marking a separation and a way to externalize the change.

There can be a wide array of elements to a ceremony and it is tailored to a person, couple, or family’s specific ending needs.

$350-$500 depending on ceremony, plus an additional 5% GST.
