The Celebrant Foundation works to facilitate human transformation and community vitality by way of personalized rituals and meaningful ceremonies. They are dedicated to certifying Life-Cycle Celebrants® in the art of ritual and in the craft of creating and enacting unique, transformative ceremonies that foster authentic connection and meaning for a diverse population. The Celebrant Foundation team envisions a world where individuals and communities are able to come together to acknowledge, support and share the joys and the sorrows that are part of the human experience in ways that are authentic to each person and are respectful and inclusive of all.
For 21 years, the foundation has trained professional officiants for weddings, funerals and ceremonies that honor all the milestones in life. They also provide certified Life-Cycle Celebrants® for weddings, celebrations of life, funerals, baby and family ceremonies and more. Certified Life-Cycle Celebrants® are contemporary professional officiants who create every ceremony uniquely. The team believes the ceremony should be based on the beliefs of each client and revolve around their unique story. Becoming a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® is a viable, purposeful way to create a business and an income or to supplement existing income. For people who are getting married or need an officiant for an end of life ceremony or for anyone going through a human milestone, certified Life-Cycle Celebrants® craft a ceremony that meets the needs of each client and tells their story their way.
As a student, the six-month certification course will be accessible through online classrooms and Zoom with a dedicated experienced instructor. Classes are taught in small groups, giving each person time to mindfully explore all the options and the experience of building their own practice. Upon graduation, the institute has different levels of support, including an active Colorado chapter where graduates can get support and camaraderie of other local certified Life-Cycle Celebrants®.
Clients seeking a wedding or funeral officiant, will find an officiant who will take the time to fully understand what is important to them, no matter what kind of ceremony is needed.
