PROCESS FOR CEREMONY PACKAGE

Your story, honored in its wild authenticity, embedded in the salty breath of the Pacific Northwest.

WHAT THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER LOOKS LIKE

01

COFFEE DATE

Once we’ve connected through this form, we’ll set up a FREE no-obligation interview by phone call, skype or in-person. This way I’ll get a basic sense of your needs and you’ll get a better sense of how I can serve you. We can become acquainted with each other and make sure I’m the right fit for you! Based on the information you share with me, I can establish a quote. You can get an idea of my prices here. If you decide to work with me, we sign a contract and you make a deposit to engage my services.

02

DEEP DIVE INTERVIEW

Next, we’ll meet in-person for an in-depth interview in a cozy indoor setting or in a local forest, beach, or meadow with hot tea in hand… I will hold a space for you to share your story and for us to go into more depth and detail about your intentions and vision for your ceremony or for the ritual support you are seeking.

03

WRITTEN QUESTIONNAIRE

I send you a written questionnaire that you fill out and send back to me. Taking the time to fill out this questionnaire is an integral part of the ceremonial experience, providing the necessary pause and breath in the busy pace of life to reflect upon your unique journey and clarify your desires.

05

CEREMONY DAY

I will arrive on site and officiate your ceremony with grace and great care.

A BEAUTIFUL KEEPSAKE

Following the ceremony, I will gift you a lovely keepsake copy of your ceremony.

Personal one-on-one sessions

What you can expect from nature-based resilience work

Through personal sessions we will tap into your inner wilderness – your vastness, creativity, nurture, & earthly belonging – to navigate the waves of change with confidence & resilience.

  • Archetypal lens to unearth our inner resources
  • Archetypal lens to work with our inner protectors (that keep you small)
  • Practices for meeting your allies and kin in nature
  • Connecting with your dreamscapes
  • Resilience & reconnection practices for times of ecological upheaval and change

Discover how conversations with the wild world can help you find your bearings during life transitions and times of global change.  Just as rivers, winds, animals, seeds and sun animate and shape the Earth, so the currents of our emotions, thoughts, sensations and imaginings inform our being.  These practices seek to strengthen these inner resources, cultivating greater wholeness, while at the same time deepening our connection to our inner nature and to the natural processes taking place within our world.

“Brooke was an essential guide in my motherhood transition”

The way she tenderly and thoughtfully created space for me during my first pregnancy reinforced my conviction that I had the necessary inner resources to go through this passage, held by the generations of women before me, with nature as guide and ally along my journey. During my second pregnancy, when fears bubbled to the surface, Brooke’s nature-based practices helped me find a place of comfort and guidance amid the living world. She has been a wayfinder in helping me to embed my daily life within a greater story, and I extend my heartfelt wishes that others may benefit from her gifts and presence.
