DIY (Divine In You) SACRED CEREMONIES
Resources and Support
If you have never created or led a sacred ceremony before, I have a number of resources to offer you so that you can design something personal and unique and even facilitate the event as well!
Do you need help with the creation of your ceremony? I have various templates ranging from
- a Basic Outline of a memorial ceremony
- a full “Done For You” memorial script in which you simply insert the name of your loved one and choose the songs and readings with my recommendations.
I can also offer you:
- A list of suitable memorial songs with the You-Tube links
- A collection of suitable memorial poems
- A checklist for your ceremony planning so that you do not forget any details on the day
Ceremony Services and Support
I can personally help you with:
- The design of a unique personalized ceremony in consultation with you and your family
- Mentoring and coaching so that you lead the ceremony yourself with confidence and ease
FULL VIP SERVICE
If you prefer, I can take on the design and the delivery of the ceremony in person at a location of your choice or even on Skype.
Please contact me <<HERE>> for a free 20-minute strategy session so that I can find out more about the ceremony you want to create and how I can best serve you.
“Rev Stephanie spent many hours with us, getting to know us personally in order to prepare for a custom-made, personalized ceremony that included our children, family, and friends. The moving and well-choreographed ceremony was adored and cherished by all, with many commenting: ‘That was the best wedding ceremony I have ever attended! We love you, Steph xx”Angela & Bevan Davis
COACHING SUPPORT FOR A NOVICE MEMORIAL CELEBRANT
Rev. Stephanie provided superb coaching support when I committed to facilitating my first ever Memorial Service for a special, close friend and fellow student of Truth.
Once I had met with the family to discuss details and the first draft of the ceremony had been approved, Stephanie assisted me (via Skype as she was in Austria & I was in South Africa) with invaluable insight and amendments to personalise the sacred ceremony. The coaching gave me the confidence to be sensitive, compassionate and loving whilst fulfilling my professional responsibility as a spiritual ceremony facilitator in a challenging situation.
The unique tribute to a wonderful soul, which Stephanie helped me create, gave my friend’s nearest and dearest a sense of consolation in their grief. After the ceremony some of the guests who were not involved in my friend’s spiritual life, mentioned that they had gained a feeling of personal strength regarding death and were able to see it in a new light – much different from their previous perceptions and experiences.
Feedback from both the family and friends was that they felt that their mother and sister would have approved of this ‘spiritual send off.’
For me one of the most memorable issues was that I could use humour appropriately and spontaneously given the circumstances, without offending anyone. (Someone’s cell phone rang 3 times during the ceremony and I was able to state without any hesitation that my friend was manifesting her presence with us in spite of her physical departure from the earthly realm!
You see, her phone always rang at inappropriate times, including during our Sunday Services. She freely admitted that she did not know how to turn it ‘off’ or onto ‘silent.’ The whole gathering erupted into joyous laughter as they had all experienced similar situations with our friend.) I truly believe that this manifestation affirmed for everyone, myself included, that there is life in a different form after the physical death. The laughter was a relief valve for much emotion and reminded everyone of our departed friend in a wonderful, positive way.
I appreciate Rev. Stephanie for assisting both myself, and all who attended this memorial ceremony, to open up to Truth and be reminded that death is not the end.Penelope Gottlieb RScP
