Prerequisite: Ceremony & Celebration Module & one other module
In keeping with the trend of 2020, this module is currently being redesigned to use virtual technology to draw together the learning that has occurred in previous modules and enable participants to apply their learning to their own particular celebrancy practice (whether public, private or in other paid employment). We’ll explore culture and spirituality, ethics, communication, and small business skills, all of which are essential components of successful practice as a celebrant, using a mixture of online, self-paced assignments, with ceremony presentations the final weekend.
Ceremony and Celebration Module – Foundation Course13/14 February & 20/21 February
This is recommended as first module of the Certificate in Celebrant Studies. It establishes a firm understanding of the nature of ceremony and ritual and the role of the celebrant in Aotearoa-New Zealand, builds essential writing and delivery skills, and provides a framework for the planning and design of contemporary ceremonies beyond weddings and funerals.
