weddings, commitment, or vow renewal ceremonies 

As a Minister of Walking Prayer—Center for Sacred Studies, part of my ministerial studies prepared me to officiate beautiful ceremonies of uniting lovers in marriage.

Honoring my ancestors, I create what I call Earth Way Ceremonies, unique in the spirit of Mother Earth and Father Sky, done at locations in nature along the cliffs of Rio Grande Gorge--now a part of the Rio Grande Norte State Monument area, in my Hogan, or at locations arranged otherwise by the couple. These ceremonies are very simple, so no rehearsals are needed.

Most Earth Way Ceremonies begin with an honor song for the sacred directions, smudging with the smoke of sage, and offerings of tobacco and corn. Smudging is extended to the guests too if a small group.

All ceremonies are written specifically for each couple being sensitive to what is important to you, seamlessly blending your vows and suggestions with the gentle Earth Way offerings mentioned above. All beliefs, walks of life, welcome.
