Celebrating Community

Coming soon

Celebrant-led ceremonies are becoming ever more popular for hatchings, matchings and dispatchings – but what about the many other kinds of occasions that have traditionally been marked with ritual?

This course will examine the what, why and how of community celebrancy, inspiring and equipping you to expand your celebrancy offer. Exploring both traditional, and new and emerging forms of ritual, we will look at ceremonies for seasonal celebrations and neighbourhood events; individual and group rites of passage for coming of age; ‘light touch’ and spontaneous ceremony; and consider other ways that we as celebrants can serve our wider communities.

Full course information and booking details coming soon in 2024


There was a really good balance of the practical and the spiritual – creating  a course that inspires, guides, and yet gives a solid practical background. This is a wonderful course and I have found it an amazing source of inspiration.
