Despite her roots in Ibiza, Anna Kathleen travels extensively - over forty countries to date. She finds spiritual fulfilment in visiting Earth’s sacred spaces -Santiago de Campostela, Machu Pichu, Sidi Harazem, Lourdes, Mount Shasta, Carthage, Angkor Wat and many others around this wonderful world.
Anna Kathleen believes that rites of passage such as Weddings, births and deaths are an important part what define our lives. If we imbue these events with our own meaning, we enrich our lives. Her talent in giving meaning to an act, however simple, allows her to enrich the lives of the people who seek her counsel.
Even though Anna Kathleen believes all Gods and Goddesses are metaphors for our Divinity, she is especially in love with Tanit, the ancient fertility Goddess of Ibiza.
These Wedding Ceremonies pull from mystical and historical imagery, and remain rooted in the power of Eivissa nature. Anna’s Kathleen’s Ceremony texts point out beauty, Love and happiness as simple things that exist all around us, and within us, at all times.
Anna passes on her vast experience and knowledge to a wonderful team of Celebrants who speak a variety of languages and are conversant with many cultures. While she herself is still involved in all the writing of the bespoke Wedding Ceremony texts, her colleagues provide a choice that is useful and appreciated by clients around the world.
We all wish you great luck, and Great Love.
