‘A Sense Of Self’

Dragonfly Naming Ceremonies For Adults

For some, the taking of a new name is a major milestone on a journey to acknowledge who they are. To take a new name and have that identity recognised publicly is a vital step towards a new and fulfilling life.

A bespoke ceremony to share that moment with family and friends is a profound experience and a new beginning. It can be a quiet, intimate gathering of close friends and family, surrounding you with love as you take your next step forward, or it can be the start of a fabulous and extravagant party!

We will work closely together to capture the nuances of the ceremony you want and how you want it to ‘feel’. Consider whether you would like ‘supporters’ if you want the special people in your life involved in the actual service. We will create a personal and unique ceremony that is just right for you, and only you…with music, poetry, readings and full of joy for what your future will hold.

From our initial meeting and an outline of what the ceremony can contain, through two drafts towards a final script for delivery on the day, I will support you in the choices you want to make. I will liaise with any friends or family with a role in the ceremony to ensure that everything is perfect. Afterwards you will be presented with a keepsake copy of your ceremony.

I wish you a courageous lifeWith no dreams left untried

So that, whichever path you takeYou’ll always walk with pride
