In my clinical life, midwifery allowed me to achieve amazing experiences with beautiful people. Being invited and welcomed into an intimacy circle where people share innermost feelings, often secrets and sometimes fears cannot be dismissed or disrespected. It was and is such a privilege.
I have discovered a new passion, which again, invites me into such circles of intimacy.
For many years I have talked about how I would love to be a Celebrant. Imagine being able to work with people to help them create a wonderful life celebration event. Whether it is a marriage, funeral or naming ceremony or any other type of event that has significance, people want to make their special events memorable. I am not sure why it appealed to me, it just did.
One day someone said to me, “When are you going to become a Celebrant? You have talked about it long enough!” They were right; I have talked about it long enough, so I set about doing the program.
So another ‘hobby’ has been added to my list of passions.
