For those who live without religion significant and profound human moments can be difficult to really commemorate. It seems that important moments, be they:
- Funerals and memorials
or any other powerful life change requires special acknowledgement. For instance, when one decides to change one’s gender ‘coming out’ as that new person when the process is done can be extremely helpful for the person and the community. Similarly, holding a memorial after a loved one dies helps the community remember that person and properly begin to grieve so as to move on.
Tim and Jennifer are registered Life Cycle Celebrants who perform non-religious ceremonies. Sometimes these are mixed religion ceremonies where the participants desire a non-religious ceremony (so no one feels excluded). Other times ceremonies performed are for the secular and Humanist society (which is their specialty).
