Celebrant Foundation - Find Your Calling

program overview

Life-Cycle Celebrants® create and officiate personalized, heartfelt ceremonies that honor all of life’s moments. A custom-crafted ceremony gives people the opportunity to honor life’s most transformational experiences authentically, and in ways that are meaningful to them. It’s their ceremony, their way. We have been helping people start a full or part-time career as a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant® for over 20 years. The demand for our services has never been higher. Our instructor lead and mentored classes meet virtually via Zoom once a week in small cohorts. Begin your classes in September and you will be certified by Spring 2022.

“I have to say that my experience with CF&I and its teachers has been life-changing more than I ever anticipated. I am so grateful for having this opportunity in this chapter of my life and for the fine education I am receiving through CF&I.”
