sacred ceremonies:

Rituals and ceremonies can be powerful tools for making a change, or for honoring a change that has already happened.   We step into sacred space to make commitments to ourselves, to others, and to Spirit.  In that space, we are open to receive wisdom and insight from deep within.  I help design and facilitate ceremonies for groups and individuals, for celebration, release, and transformation.  I happily officiate wedding ceremonies in and around Charlottesville and Central Virginia, including the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park.


I use Tarot as a tool for deep self-reflection and understanding my place in the archetypal human journey.  It isn’t ‘fortune-telling’, but sometimes I get surprised by an eerily-accurate prediction, and I’m humbled yet again by the mysteries I don’t understand.  I use the cards daily in my personal practice, and offer readings to people who are looking for a fresh perspective on a life situation.


“Over the Edge: the blog” began in 2003 as a form of activism, to share life on the commune (Twin Oaks, in rural Virginia) with the larger world.  Since leaving the community in 2006, the blog has continued to be an exploration of what it takes to create a life of purpose, connection, and deep joy.
