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.
