To fund my Celebrant training

by Lula Edmonds in Brighton, England, United Kingdom

Hello!

I’m Lula and I’m training to be a Celebrant - A what? – A non religious person who holds meaningful rituals at transition points in people’s lives -

I wish to collaboratively forge deep, creative ceremonies whether it’s a wedding on the beach in Hawaii, a woodland separation ritual at the end of a partnership or a space to commit to one’s own values and direction....

I hold close a nurtured endowment I have to form safe, sincere and silly spaces. I feel the neglect of this culturally and how the lack of honest spaces can lead to a multitude of patterns of acting out, and in my opinion, dissociation of values and the feeling of separation.

So here is a tiny contribution to amending this....

Adding to this, my business will have an ethical mission statement, holding me accountable to uphold integrity - emotionally, physically and environmentally.

10 offerings I wish to exchange for your cash ;)

You can either just donate or you can donate and then email Radical.with.Rituals@gmail.com naming what delight you wish for and I’ll be excitedly waiting to deliver!
