Your AUTHENTIC ceremony
"As a storyteller, confidant, mentor, creative visionary, artist, whatever you want your ceremony to express, I create.
I read you, connect with who you are at your most authentic and put into words and actions what you feel.
What is important is focusing on everythign we do as the intention to create the life you want BEYOND the ceremony day - I guide you to find how to express that fully"
When I was 18 years old, I had my first encounter with shamanism. Since then, initiations and shamanic practices have deeply enriched my experience of making powerful ceremony as the modern day medicine woman I am today today.
For over 20 years I have been holding the space for transformational processes as a mentor, and facilitator, shamanic practitioner and creative. I have worked with 100's of people in that time to understand and bring out into the world exactly what they need and be the facilitator who gets them there. Ceremony is to me, the most powerful, creative and accessible way of honouring life. I also trained and practiced as a healer and worked with natural and alternative medicine for many years, in that time I developed the ability to truly listen to what the soul needed.
I am greatly inspired by my love of the planet, universal principles and the richness of different cultures. I love vintage clothing, my beautiful family, Frida Kahlo, Gogol Bordello and Prince, although not necessarily in that order!
I was born in Chile to activists parents during the military dictatorship and then lived in Notting Hill and North Kensington where I found roots, this rich diverse fusion of cultural experiences and life is what I channel as a celebration of self expression. I met my husband over 20 years ago, and we called one of our children after Salvador Allende and one after Gabriel Garcia Marquez in honour of some of their heritage.
I began officiating ceremonies in 2006, and in 2016 decided to set up Creative Ceremonies, so as to embrace this calling fully engaging in the resurgence of ceremony, conscious celebration and soul work in our culture.
YOU ARE NOT HERE TO FIT IN!
YOU ARE HERE TO STAND OUT, FOR YOUR REASONS, FOR BEING UNIQUE, FOR BEING AUTHENTIC.
I have a different way of doing things, creative, joyful, expansive, ethical, eco-conscious and celebrates diversity and equality.
Why is it unique?
It involves a level of expression of soul that seizes the opportunity to deepen your relationship to life itself. It is unconventional because we don't have to do it how you've seen it done before - and we really won't!
I take you through a powerful and beautiful transformational process of becoming, so that you can feel connected to a personal sharing of your unique message, on exactly your terms without compromise or apology.
Your conscious choices become a sharing of your beliefs and values about life and the world.
A pre-loved outfit becomes a bold and beautiful statement of social responsibility, or locally sourced flowers or giving to charity. There are many ways so rich in potential to share - by even choosing one single aspect to focus on, the ripples begin to make waves.
For A Rites of Passage Ceremony, a personal and deeply felt recognition that you are creating the opportunity to grow closer to the things that really matter to you.
Ceremony to me is soul art, and is also a form of sacred activism.
By honouring the elements (earth, air, fire, water and spirit) in all that I do, I call upon the five areas of life that are there to strengthen your connection with soul.
So, honour your authentic rebel soul, dive deep into life and celebrate.
