Clergy Profile: I am a well-seasoned Priestess, with more than ten years experience of conducting public ritual and offering spiritual counselling, and more than fifteen years experience of sharing my skills and knowledge.
I have a particular calling to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, intersex and transgender people in their spirituality, and those in ‘non-mainstream’ relationships (e.g. poly, BD/SM, etc.) , particularly in healing past hurts from experiences with religious groups, and opening the heart to direct experience of the Divine, including within relationships.
I offer ceremonies for all rites of passage: handfasting (for couples of all genders) , welcoming a newborn or adopted child into the family, home blessing, entering adulthood, entering elderhood, funerals and pre-funeral planning.
Ceremonies and rituals are designed with individuals, couples and families according to their wants and needs.
I am registered with the General Register Office for Scotland to conduct legally recognised marriage ceremonies through the Pagan Federation (Scotland) . Sadly the law does not yet make this legal option available to same-sex couples, but I am happy to conduct handfasting/wedding ceremonies for all couples and also polyamorous relationships, without a legal element.
I am available to conduct ceremonies throughout southern and central Scotland. I am also open to travelling to the Scottish Highlands and Islands to conduct ceremonies, if time and travel allow. I am also available to conduct ceremonies in Cumbria and Northumberland, but please note that I cannot conduct legally registered wedding ceremonies outside of Scotland.
Spiritual counselling is an opportunity for not only your story, but your soul to be heard – a space of deep listening. Spiritual counselling is not a replacement for psychological counselling or treatment, but a process of discovery where together we divine your deepest goals and seek to heal and strengthen the connection between body, heart, soul, mind and spirit.
I bring my whole self to the time we spend together – whether face to face or over telephone or video link – giving my full attention to your whole self. I may support our work together by recommending specific spiritual practices to aid your process, or use tools such as Tarot to help clarify what energies are at work. I offer spiritual counselling to people of any faith or none.
My journey in spirituality over the past 30 years has taken me to and through Protestant and Catholic Christianities, Buddhist meditation, A Course In Miracles, Sufi devotion, Hindu teaching, and Pagan celebration and connection. Where I have arrived is at a Pagan spirituality deeply embedded and embodied in relationship with my self, other human and non-human beings, the land, the Fey, my Gods and the Universe itself.
While I am still learning, and will continue to learn throughout my life, I feel I have reached a point where I can also begin to teach. I work within a Pagan cosmology which encompasses the experience of both the Divine within and the Divine beyond, of many Gods and of God in all.
I offer one-to-one teaching and mentoring over a minimum of three months to anyone who feels they are ready to commit to regular spiritual practice and a deepening relationship with mystery.
I have been a mystic since birth, a self-identified Pagan since 1987 and a Witch since 1997. I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in 1998 by The Interfaith Seminary (http://www.interfaithfoundation.org/) and also completed training with LifeRites in 1999 (http://www.liferites.org.uk/) .
My training has come through the Tarot - my first Mystery school, through working as a professional complementary therapist, community activist, environmental educator and further education lecturer, through Reclaiming and Feri/Faery traditions of Witchcraft, through much reading, observation and listening, and most of all through openness to the land on, and the more-than-human community within which I live.
Rates: Handfastings: £400 / Funerals: £200 + travel and accommodation/overnight costs where required; Divination and spiritual counselling sessions: variable; Teaching: no fee; gifts may be accepted.
