About

Genevieve MunozGenevieve Munoz, Life-Cycle Celebrant®

It has been said that “The deepest desire we have is to be heard.”

I believe that through ceremony and ritual, both the joyful moments and the difficult experiences of life can be acknowledged and honored as important and significant times, influencing who you are – and who you are yet to become.

Greetings, my name is Genevieve, and I would be honored to work with you as your Celebrant in creating a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that honors all of the special times in your “Labyrinth of Life.”

I am a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® and graduate of The Celebrant Foundation & Institute™.   As the founder of Genevieve Munoz Ceremonies, LLC, I create and officiate life-cycle ceremonies for individuals, couples, families, and communities.  I also have a concentration certificate in Weddings and Commitment Ceremonies.

For more specific information about my work with couples for Weddings and Commitment Ceremonies, visit my other site, Minnesota North Shore Weddings.

As your Celebrant, I will actively listen and create with you a unique ceremony that is a true reflection of your values and beliefs. You will have full say on the work we do together, then, several weeks following your special event, you will be given a beautiful keepsake copy of your ceremony.

My passions and gifts are a culmination of my life’s experience and work. I bring respect for all cultures and traditions, a warmth and sincerity to your personal needs and a love and appreciation for words, music, art, and nature as they are richly expressed in ritual and symbolism.

My training from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute™ encompasses the entire life-cycle with a concentration in families and children – creating ceremonies from child/adoption welcomings to end of life tributes. I have a special interest in women’s transition stages, and am pleased to announce the offering of divorce ceremonies which address a very painful and often forgotten major life transition.

Whether it’s a child welcoming, coming of age, downsizing from a job, home blessing, pet memorial, or milestone birthday, I would be honored to tell your story – the one that is waiting to be told.

Won’t you join me in this journey celebrating the changing seasons of your life…

Testimonial

Jan and GenevieveIt is my pleasure to recommend Genevieve Munoz, certified Life-Cycle Celebrant and graduate of the Celebrant Foundation & Institute. She brings both thoughtful awareness and expertise to the healing arts. As the founder of Genevieve Munoz Ceremonies, LLC, Genevieve creates rituals that are meaningful, relevant and artfully designed in support of her client’s needs.

In July 2015, Genevieve created a meaningful labyrinth ceremony for the Pain Management Support Group at Essential Health, Duluth, MN. Built into the labyrinth ceremony were moments of thoughtful reflection, storytelling, music, symbol, poetry, and blessing. The ritual was designed to honor the hallmarks of each participant’s journey with chronic pain as well as an acknowledgement and celebration of their resilience and courage.

I regard Genevieve as someone who is not only marvelous in her craft, but also sensitive to the nuances of another’s story. And, in addition to knowledge and skill, Genevieve possesses both empathy and a calming presence.

Genevieve has been a blessing to participants in Essentia Health’s Pain Management Support Group. I wholeheartedly endorse Genevieve’s skill in the healing arts and plan to have her follow up with another labyrinth ceremony for the Pain Management Program in the future.
