Animist  Ministry

I became an ordained Animist Minister through the Web of Life Church, October 2022.

Whatever your philosophy or spiritual beliefs, I practice inclusion and find diversity in nature's healthiest environments. You can be whatever flower you want to be in the garden of life. The practice of Animism informs the way I work with plants, humans and the integrity for which I approach my own life. 

Folks ask me what Animism is and these are some words to describe it.

An understanding that all things animate and inanimate possess a spirit or essence

Attribution of soul to animals plants,

& geographical places

Earth honoring

A belief in a supernatural power(s) that organizes and animates the material universe

"A process that encourages an individual to see themselves as equal in the web of life, as a contributor to a sustainable lifestyle"  Web of Life Church

Grief Ceremony

As an ordained minister, I'll create and hold a safe and sacred circle where we can identify feelings and emotions associated with Grief, Bereavement and Loss.

Using a journaling exercise and breathing we practice connecting with our feelings while moving our grief and our bodies. 

The ceremony concludes using water as an element to transmute our grief. 

The Grief Ceremony can be offered for a group or individually. Pricing varies, please schedule an appointment to talk briefly about your need, using the book online tab.

Hearthealing Aromatherapy


This is an opportunity to work with essential oils and address the emotional needs of the heart. Following a conversation about what you would like to heal, a brief health consult is conducted. Your bespoke (unique) aromatherapy blend is created from our conversation.

Aromatherapy can be supportive while experiencing emotional and/or archetypal life transitions. Our sense of smell comes from our olfactory nerve ending in the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memory. Using scent and ritual we can support our emotional health.

End of Life Aromatherapy


A 1 oz bespoke blend of oil formulated to provide comfort and dignity for the person dying. Our olfactory nerve ends in the part of the brain that regulates memory and emotion. Through the process of dying aroma/scent may provide emotional and physical comfort for a loved one.

Conversation with an Animist Minister

A safe open dialogue about exploring your connection to Earth and all its living beings, our relationship with the Universe and the Divine source energy that connects us all. I am also comfortable hosting conversation about death, the nature of impermanence, the dying process and exploration of our consciousness.

 Personal Spirit Ceremony

(service not currently available)

Major life transitions can awaken a need for energetic and spiritual ceremony. An acknowledgment of the change happening within your Self. 

Creating ceremony brings awareness and intention to the process of change, it observes where you are and where you are going. 

After talking through your intentions, we can design a personal spirit ceremony honoring the changes within your inner and/or outer being. Transitions can be for many reason(s).
