Throughout South Africa and Africa ceremony is a part of life. One can find one self in a ritual at any moment for a number of different reasons. Africa is a land filled with ritual. The First Peoples of our country lived life as a sacred gift of the Creator. Ceremony and ritual is seen as the gateway to living lives blessed by the gods and goddess. Ritual is seen as the gateway to a healthy relationship with our ancestors. Being alive is the gesture that brings us into communion with our Great Spirit, God, Allah, Yahweh, etc. The vital requirement is the use of your sacred words and your open heart. It is a myth that First Peoples did not pray, or that they were praying to ancestors and animals. It is a story made up by colonisers who had no concept of the sacred in the way our peoples understood and embodied this. It was known that all of creation responds to prayer.
Ceremony is a way in which we offer our gratitude for all of life, acknowledging that this includes human beings, animals, plants, trees, stones, the elements and all the peoples all around the world.
Ceremonies weave people together. Ceremony offers opportunity to release old things, to embrace new things, to be in community, to learn new ways of living, to give thanks, to accept and receive.
There are religious ceremonies, earth healing ceremonies, water ceremonies, fire ceremonies, grief ceremonies, dance ceremonies, sweat lodge ceremonies. There are ceremonies to honour all the cycles of life – to honour all of life.
Ceremony is a way of life and I have embraced Islamic ceremonies, water ceremonies, sweat lodge ceremonies, dance ceremonies, grief ceremonies, life changes ceremonies as a way of healing and embracing life and love.
With Love as my teacher, I hold this sacred vibration in all the spaces I am blessed to offer my services in.
With Love as our anchor, in sacred ceremony we weave invisible strands of holy healing vibrations able to bless ourselves, one another and all of life.
