Gender Transition & Naming Ceremonies

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.

- Maya Angelou


For people transitioning to a gender on the outside that matches their sensed gender on the inside, recognition from the outside world is incredibly important and healing. Do you have a loved one who would benefit from a space to honor your new name? Let us celebrate your identify…fully and within a community that loves you.


Why rituals? Rituals are a marker that acknowledges and honors the past while embracing hope for the future. Rituals have a way of providing a sacred pause in the midst of an ordinary life. Rituals offer space for our inner worlds and outer worlds to mingle and find congruence. In a world that is often lived in isolation and with distance, rituals bring people together, help us connect, and create a sense of belonging. Rituals lead us in the important and healing work of meaning making and creating purpose. Rituals are rites of passages that help us connect the threads of our lives into a meaningful tapestry and story. Rituals tell the story of our lives.
