Celebrating milestones and marking important transitions in a meaningful way

People, families and organisations go through a lot of changes in their lifetime. Marking and celebrating those transitions together is a powerful way to (re-)connect, to look back, be grateful, let go and move on, to gather energy and vitalise resources for what is to come.

I co-create and facilitate celebrations, ceremonies and rituals that are fun and meaningful, creating a special and safe space where participants can be present and involved in their own unique way. 

What makes a celebration meaningful?

There are many ways to celebrate. Having a drink together or sharing a meal for example are ceremonies in themselves, and this can be totally meaningful in many contexts.

Sometimes there is a call for something else though: maybe not everybody in the team enjoys receptions and dinners. Maybe it’s time to change a worn-out tradition, to enrich a celebration with content and connection. Or the other way around: maybe the annual evaluation gathering needs some ceremony to lighten things up.

In other words: the answer to what is meaningful will be different every time. It emerges in the conversation I have with the people I co-create the celebration with.

Stien Michiels and Willem Stortelder turned out to be the most wonderful Ceremony Hosts, guiding us through this special moment.

You put us on a wonderful cloud and we didn’t get off anymore until the next day.

When and Why?

  • You want to celebrate a succes, a milestone, a year of great work
  • You want to thank your colleagues, employees, leaders
  • Your Family / Your organisation finds itself at an important moment in time and you want to create a special moment for a group of people
  • You want to make a certain meeting, gathering or event more meaningful
  • You want to involve participants in (creating) a celebration or a special event
  • Anything else you want to discuss? Let’s talk about it, it’s free of charge.
My approach: what can you expect from me?

Co-creation

We work together to create a beautiful and meaningful celebration.

Fun & Depth

Fun and lightness, meaning and and depth go hand in hand.

Experience

I attended many ceremonies and guided several, I follow workshops and I have over a decade of facilitating experience.

Adaptability

I feel at home in all contexts, be it family or organisational, and I adapt my interventions accordingly.

Multi-Lingual

I speak Flemish/Dutch, English and French fluently and I stand my ground in German. I can combine languages easily.

Creativity and Artistry

As an artist and a poetic and audiovisual harvester, I have several tools to my disposal to intensify the experience of my interventions and/or to (co-)create an artistic object in words or images, recording the visible and the invisible.

Follow up Care

Besides what I do on the spot, I can work on a second wave of artistic harvesting after the event or workshop, by creating beautiful pdf files and audiovisuals, combining images with words.

A little bit of Magic

Not everything can be explained in words …
