 “A special book.  Even just reading it through is good for the soul.” Lucy Pearce

“Jackie’s writing on our need for ceremony is eloquent, wise and clear. ” Sue Gill, author and celebrant

“Jackie encourages us to be couragous, inventive and experimental.  She inspires us to find ways to make these ceremonies inclusive and heartfelt, to trust our instincts and our community to support us and bear witness.”  Glennie Kindred, from the Foreword.



From time to time I offer talks, workshops and courses for people interested in learning more about these rituals and ceremonies.  Please contact me to organise an event, or if you would like to be kept in touch with forthcoming plans.
