Based on psychotherapeutic techniques, mindfulness practices and shamanic ceremonies, this book endeavors to provide the reader with a template to create their own ceremonies, rather than make their experience fit into a model that may or may not serve them.
In a therapeutic setting these ceremonies can anchor and deepen the work done in the therapy process.
In every day life, these simple ceremonies provide you with ideas and forms to create Ceremonies for the memorable times in your life, whether they are 'big' or 'subtle'.
Ceremonies and rituals for life transitions, loss and healing is a fundamental aspect of our need to 'make meaning' when one's life is forever altered by an event. I am grateful to Monique for her generosity in sharing her wisdom and compassion in this book. Debra Augenthaler, MHP
As always, through these Ceremonies, Monique's gentle and pure approach helps guide us to heal our souls. Jennifer de Klaver, co-founder bella j.
Monique comes as close as anyone I know to living a sacred life. She doesn't' just use these ceremonies in her practice; they are an integral part of her life. They come as naturally to her as breathing. Lia DeLand MS,LPC, NCC, Summit Academy
