* What is a Life-Cycle Celebrant?

Life-Cycle Celebrants officiate for individuals, couples, families and organizations at virtually every life event, custom-designing ceremonies to reflect the needs, beliefs and values of people from all walks of life. Ceremonies include weddings, vow renewals, baby blessings and namings, coming-of-age, rites-of-passage, survivor, retirements, family reunions, memorials, and funerals. Celebrants train in an interdisciplinary program learning the history and art of celebration, symbolism, rites of passage and world traditions, as well as the theory and practice of ceremony, rituals and public speaking.
