Cari D. Dawson
Cari has designed and officiated at unique and meaningful rituals for weddings, memorial services, funerals, scatterings of ashes and other transitional ceremonies. As a chaplain and celebrant, she has supported families and their loved ones with end-of-life rituals—religious and non-religious. Cari creates ritual celebrations with deep respect and reverence for the participants’ spiritual preferences. Regardless of the occasion, both joy and awe are present when we stand on the brink of transformation and New Life.
Whether you are in need of guidance & direction during a life-changing time such as the death of a loved one, divorce, career change, or mid-life exploration of existential questions; or a celebrant to officiate at a funeral, memorial service or other life transition, I will meet you where you are, drawing upon various methods, including dream work, as we delve more deeply into your needs. Regardless of your belief system, life philosophy, life style or spirituality, whether you identify with a church or faith tradition, or consider yourself agnostic or atheist, I will journey with you as a metaphorical midwife in your evolving wholeness. I will challenge and support you as you explore living your “one wild and precious life” to its fullest potential.
