Purification Ceremony

Whether you have been through a traumatic experience, a conflict, a break-up, a challenging time, or if you feel like there is an energetic blockage or obstacle weighing you down, Yeshe can perform a ceremony to help clear the energy, lift your spirits, and set things back on the right track. After performing a cleansing ritual with prayer, smoke offerings, and other traditional methods, she will offer you a brief divination with guidance to help you make the most of your ceremony and move forward with grace and a lighter heart.

Personal or Small Group Ceremony

If you have recently marked a rite of passage in your life, if there is a new phase of growth beginning, if you’d like to make a dedication to a path of spiritual devotion, or if you would like a facilitated shamanic journey experience, Yeshe can work with you to create a ceremony to help you mark the occasion and to catalyze your next steps along the path of life. Working within your structure of belief, Yeshe will design a ritual that can help you integrate an experience, commit to a journey of self-discovery, or acknowledge a significant transformation. She will include meaningful symbols and activities that are relevant to you, and hold the ceremony in a sacred location that supports the ceremony’s expression. If you work with Yeshe to create your ceremony, it will include a discovery meeting to discuss your needs and preferences and the ceremony itself.

Wedding/Handfasting/Union Ceremony

Yeshe has performed dozens of weddings and commitment ceremonies, everything from intimate elopements to huge cathedral-style gatherings. Her weddings help people create spectacular moments of heart connection, whether in the witness of family and friends or simply in the presence of nature. If you book Yeshe as your wedding celebrant, you can expect an incredibly special ceremony with space for the things that matter most to you, including everything from ring exchanges to blessing of your marriage with the powers of the elements, handfasting with a blessed cord, the lighting of sacred flames, the inclusion of music, poetry, or quotes that are meaningful to you, invocation of your benevolent ancestors, help with writing your vows, and invitation for attendees to participate in offering the blessing. Together, you and Yeshe will co-create the language and activities that make your commitment truly unique. Working with Yeshe as a celebrant involves a pre-wedding meeting to discuss your needs and preferences, the ceremony editorial process, a rehearsal, and the ceremony itself.
