Renaming ceremonies

There is an old proverb that says ‘The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names’. But what if you have lived your life with the wrong name, or perhaps a name you felt restricted you to a life that wasn’t yours? Changing your name can be one of the most important steps for a transgender or gender non-conforming person to take.

I will work with you to create a ceremony that says all you want it to about your hopes and dreams as you move forward in life, to thank those who have supported you on your journey and if you choose to, to honour those people as well.

"I think that positivity— real positivity— is like the butterflies. The whole essence of the butterfly: caterpillar, cocoon, winged creature. When I look at a butterfly, I not only see a winged beauty, but I also see a strong beauty! A mind that decided: "I'm going to become better, I'm not going to be afraid of the dark, I'm going to roll myself up in this thing that I am and I will come out winged and colourful."  - C. Joybell.
