Threshold Rituals

 Creative // Loving // Accessible // Queer

We’re not here in these human bodies for very long. What if we celebrated our pleasure, connection, joy & grief like there is no tomorrow? What if we accepted, at least a little, the great uncertainty we are living with and stopped taking things for granted?

Life offers more than the heteronormative, capitalist narratives that keep us small. Rituals can help us reimagine kinship, make unique commitments and create space for good grief.

I love making memories that are true to who we are and I’m excited about the things that become possible when we’re collaborating with the spirits of time, place & ideas.

Things I love to create rituals for 

Commitment ceremonies between friends, partners and lovers (self, two or more)

Changes in health and ability

The start of new projects, businesses or artistic expressions

Break ups, losses and grief

Transitions, coming out & new identities

Home, garden & body blessings

What I bring

I love creating warm, creative & simple rituals for the big and small milestones in life. My practice is grounded in pleasure, justice & animism and I am an imperfect lover of the earth. I bring presence, care and creative ideas to help you make a beautiful memory.

More about my background & qualifications

I’ve completed my celebrating life celebrancy training with the OBOD in 2018 and am currently completing another course on funeral celebrancy. I also have a BA combining creative writing with mythology & folklore, an MA in creative media and a professional certificate in end of life care from the University of Vermont. I am currently a part time postgraduate student of history & folklore at the University of the Highlands & Islands.

Presence & grounding is important to me in all my work and I find that past trainings in body work also support my ritual practice. I’ve completed breathwork trainings, level one movement for trauma with Jane Clapp, a thai yoga massage course with Ralf Marzen and a training on trauma-informed care with the Breathe Network.

I’ve also taken classes on tarot & ritual with Alexis Cunningfolk, Beth Maiden, Sarah Kerr, Lara Veleda Vesta, Nancy Antenucci & Asia Suler and have deep gratitude for the inspiration I received from Clarissa Pinkola Estès, adrienne maree brown, Frances Weller and Joanna Macy. 

I’m a white queer person with a working class background, currently living a middle class life on the East coast of Scotland. I have some visible and invisible disabilities and have experienced ill mental health, bereavement through suicide and sexual violence.

 

Time & Space

I can facilitate rituals & ceremony in Scotland and online and I offer personalised, recorded tarot rituals remotely. It is beautiful to be in a special place together, but it can also be really meaningful (and accessible) to gather online to celebrate a significant moment. When being by the sea, a river or in the forest together is not possible, a guided visualisation can help us get there too. I’m willing to travel in some instances and ask that you reach out well in advance if you already have a date in mind.

Good grief

I’m comfortable talking about and holding space for death & loss of all kinds. While loss is always painful, I see good grief as a healing practice that asks us to grow our capacity to love beyond our species, lifetimes and lived experiences. Memorials and rituals can be a beautiful first step of integration and acknowledgment.

How we can work together

Audio recorded rituals

I also offer audio recorded tarot readings with ritual guidance for special occassions. If you’d like some support for commiting to yourself or someone else in a new way, for marking a milestone in your life or for making some space for your grief, this is for you. After filling in the form below you’ll receive an audio recording and a beautiful pdf made for you within seven working days – this will include a 3-5 card tarot spread, some ritual ideas and resources as well as a little blessing for the way. These are created asynchronously, so there is no need to arrange an appointment.

Care & Integration package

If you’d like to work over distance, but have me hold your hand through the process of creating a special memory for you, then this can be a great option. It includes an audio recorded tarot reading including some journaling prompts to get you started thinking about your wishes, followed by a 45min Zoom session in which we’ll design your ritual together, a beautiful pdf with ideas & resources and then a 30min integration call during which we’ll reflect on your ritual and look at how it changed you. 

In person & online rituals

Each ritual or ceremony is unique and it’s therefore best to reach out for an obligation free quote. As a general guideline I charge GBP 70 per hour for this work – sometimes just having one consultation on Zoom might be all you need to receive support in creating a DIY ceremony for yourself. If you would like me to be a celebrant on your special day, you might have to budget for one or two prep meetings, travel time & some time for the ceremony itself.

Disclaimer

Rituals are not a replacement for therapy, medical attention or legal advice that’s needed. They are a beautiful way to support ourselves through transitions in life and give us a sense of agency, meaning and creative expression.

I am not a therapist and don’t diagnose or treat medical conditions. If you’d like to work together, please make sure you only commit to what feels right for you and that if you have other resources in place should you need them.
