Structure of the Course
The basics of the creation of secular rituals are presented during a mandatory introductory day. The first module focuses on learning how to create rituals to mark life’s transitions for oneself and one’s loved ones. The certificate ‘Specialist in Emerging Rituals’ is awarded to participants who complete the requirements of the Introduction and Module 1.
The second module meets the needs of professionals – such as celebrants – who accompany their clients in the ritualmaking process. Participants of Module 2 who complete the requirements receive the certificate ‘Professional in Ritual Accompaniment’.
Those who meet the requirements for the third module receive the Certificate of Advanced Studies in Ritual Accompaniment (CAS). Module 3 involves writing a thesis that should be presented to ritual experts. The presentation is followed by a ritual presentation of the CAS diploma at a public ceremony.
