Through ceremony, you have the opportunity to acknowledge important stages in your life. Buddhist ceremonies can help you to open to joy, sorrow, deep intention, loving care for others and letting go. For all ceremonies, we will work with you to plan a service that best honors the occasion and helps you and your family and friends to embrace the life changes that the ceremony marks.

Three temple priests are available to create personalized ceremonies either at Clouds in Water or at the site of your choice. You do not need to be Buddhist in order to have one of our priests lead your ceremony— we are open to working with you whatever your background. Click below for information about each priest:
