Spiritual Matters

24220 119th Avenue Court East, Graham, WA
Whether your wedding is traditional, modern, secular, religious, or you are renewing your vows, my goal is to give you the ceremony you have always dreamed of. A wedding ceremony that reflects your unique personality and style. A ceremony that emphasizes you, the Bride and Groom, and one that will be a blessing to your family and guests. Weddings are more than joyous celebrations. They are the beginning of a sealed covenant between couples and families. Weddings are historic events....the day to look back upon as the beginning of a new life together. Your ceremony will speak from the heart and reflect to your family and friends who you are. Every couple is unique and deserves a ceremony that honors this.

Hello! My name is Susan K. Rowan-Nelson, and I am a Certified Independent Celebrant. I perform Weddings, Handfastings, Renewals of Vows, Namings, Welcomings, Dedications, Baptisms, Initiations, House Blessings and House Cleansings, and more. I am also an Ordained Minister with the Universal Life Church, and so I am able to legally perform and solemnize marriages in the State of Washington, as well as in most other U.S. states. As a Celebrant, my primary goal and deepest desire is to create for you, and to deliver in the venue of your choice, a ceremony that is uniquely your own—one that is a personal and powerful, magical and memorable, one-of-a-kind celebration of your love for one another, for your child, for a new member of your family, group, or community, or for your home. To create a day and a ceremony that is uniquely your own, I will spend time getting to know you personally, and I will learn from you about your unique story (including your historical and cultural story—as an individual, a couple, and part of an extended family and community). I will listen closely as you describe the kind of ceremony that you envision, and of which you dream. I will talk with you about the people, places, spiritual ideals, and family/cultural/religious/ancestral practices and traditions that matter to you, with a focus on those that you wish to include, or to honor, in your ceremony. In these ways, and in others, I will work closely with you to create a ceremony in which the power of the transformation that is taking place (for example, from a single individual to half of a unified whole) manifests in a moving, meaningful,and memorable way. Above all, I will create a ceremony that is truly magical, so that your special and significant moment in time will transform into a treasured memory that you, and everyone present, will forever cherish. In addition, I hold a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Warwick, Coventry, England, and I am a professional Ethicist. As a university professor for nearly 15 years, I taught philosophy, writing, mythology (including ritual theory), literature, and more. I have published two books, numerous articles, poetry, and short fiction, and I still work as a freelance writer and editor. So, I am well-trained in writing, and I will happily assist you in writing your vows and/or readings for your ceremony, if you so desire. Moreover, I hold a BA in Philosophy and Classics, My experience as both a mythology teacher and a celebrant has given me a deep understanding of the transformative power of ritual. So, you can be sure that when you make the transformation from a single individual to half of a unified whole, or your child is transformed from a new family member to a formally named and welcomed part of your family and community, the moment will be magical, meaningful, and memorable. I am a Reiki healer, and I offer Reiki sessions for individuals and groups. Please inquire about my group discounts! I am also a psychic (clairvoyant and clairsentient)), empath, magical practitioner, and member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD). I offer Individual Readings, either in-person or long distance.
