Ceremony allows us to celebrate the cycles of life that occur in everyday life, such as marriage, a new baby welcomed into the world, and saying goodbye in a loving memorial. These are important events where a Celebrant can be of service. In today’s world, ceremonies need not be created using traditional, timeworn formats, but can be designed to honor your values, history, vision, and uniqueness.
A Humanist Celebrant is an ambassador of Humanism. This is my mission in life, and I express it as an author, speaker, teacher, and ceremony officiant. My certification as a Humanist Celebrant through the Society of Celebrations confers equivalency of ordained clergy, and privileges including solemnization of weddings.
Humanism puts human beings and other living things at the center of our moral outlook. It sees the world as a natural place, and looks to reason and science to make sense of it. Humanism works to support the best possible life for everyone, and rejects religious belief as a valid reason for oppression of any person or group. Nature shows us what is true, and judges no one. Is that what you believe?
