I specialize in counseling but have performed about a dozen Handfastings, many house blessings and one baby Blessing. I am also able to do Wiccanings, and Coven Mediation or Arbitration.
Prior to Handfasting, I ask that a couple meet with me so we may get to know one another. You can share your plans for your special day.
I am not willing to be skyclad, however we can coordinate my ritual wear with the style of your ritual for your ceremony. I have "Witchy Wear" of course, as well as conservative business dress, tie dyes, ren faire garb, traditional priest "shepherd shirts" and cloaks.
Prior to your Handfasting, your time may be limited and I am happy to work around your schedule to meet. Please notify me at least two months in advance of your ceremony date whenever possible.
The first meeting is critical for us to go over which of my ceremonies you like, or if you are doing one you have created, or will be be working the details out together. We must meet first for me to understand many things: Are your guests understanding of your spirituality or if we need to be closeted? Do you have your own vows? Sand ceremony?
Arbitrations & Mediation:
For coven arbitration or mediation: I require these situations to be held over a meal. We will all share a meal together and both sides will provide the food (potluck) or divide the bill (eating out) . Plan for this meeting to take a couple of hours or more. Additional meetings may be required. Telephone and chat mediation is also an option under certain circumstances.
We can coordinate what you like by phone or email and I have several rituals you might like, many great tips and ideas, and we can work out all the details you like prior to the blessing.
You are encouraged to help yourself and I can help you gain a better perspective and gain the tools you need. However, above all you will be helped back on your feet, and expected to walk on your own so to speak. Therefore, counseling sessions may not exceed two hours in any given calendar month. For example, we can meet every other week for an hour, but not more.
If you have need of other clergy services not listed above, please feel free to contact me.
Please note: All of my services (except psychic counseling) are free of charge but not free of equal exchange.
Please offer to compensate for gas, provide costumes or dress your ceremony may require if I don't have them, or maybe even save me a piece of Handfasting cake!
Handfastings are a serious spiritual commitment and you are expected to set aside time to meet with me in advance so I understand your needs.
House blessings may require me to drive to your house of course, please offer to help with gas money, particularly if you are over 50 miles away. If you require salt, candles, sage, lemons, copper, bread or other items often used in house blessings, please have them on hand or I can provide them but will need to be compensated. These items are usually around twenty dollars but are not necessary and we can design a great blessing with what is on hand, and these are sometimes even more special.
Again, all of my services are offered FREE OF CHARGE except for counseling which is a firm $25 an hour. My normal rate is $95 an hour so please mention Witchvox to receive the discounted $25.
We can work out a trade in household items, garden plants or seeds, or even labor such as gardening, housework or errands if you are experiencing financial duress. We are working on a property to create a Pagan sanctuary and could use some help from bush hog mowing to mushroom plugging or herb gathering. Your labor trade could even be your own lesson in herbalism!
Rates: Handfastings, Baby Blessings, Wiccanings & House Blessings: NO CHARGE (please read details above) ., Psychic counseling $25 hour (mention Witchvox for this discounted rate) ., Coven Mediation or Arbitration: Food (see description above)
