Our world is changing.

Old communities are evolving and new communities are emerging.
Old power structures are crumbling around us.

There is a gap.

Many people don’t feel represented by that old world. Birth, death, union, rebirth, coming of age. These life events are traditionally celebrated and shared. It’s a core part of what makes a community. These are moments when we come together, we connect and make memories.


I believe that rituals and ceremonies don’t have to be old fashioned. They don’t have to be a compromise or a cookie-cutter event. They can be unique. They can be meaningful. They can be inspiring. They can resonate and represent all those who have gathered.

I’m Karen Dempsey.
I created these trainings to help people to reimagine the Art of Ceremony for our new world. I’ve wanted to share this with you for a long time.

Maybe you’ve been waiting.

This is a space where you can learn to become not just a celebrant, but a Ceremonialist- a creatrix who is entrusted to create meaningful ceremonies to mark life’s great moments of transition. 


it’s not just about writing some words and speaking them publicly- it starts with a journey of self-discovery. 

If you’re reading this, maybe you’ve already had a taste of awakening in your life. Maybe you’re ready to explore your inner power and purpose so that you can support others on a similar path.

You’re seeing old power structures crumbling, and you want to be a part of what comes next.

You see communities around you who are not served by traditional ceremonies, and you are ready to step up and serve them

You have been working on your own self-awareness, and you are ready and willing to leverage that to create space for others on a similar path

You have been researching training options, but they all feel the same and none of them fit what you’re truly seeking

The only thing holding you back is the belief that you don’t have the skills to step out into this space and provide the service you know is needed

If you’re ready to serve the communities of this new world, you’ll find the support and guidance you need in this training programme

I’m glad you’re here.
