Baby Welcoming and Other Ceremonies

Baby Welcoming, House Blessing, Anniversaries, Job or Life Transitions and Other Ceremonies

Having a ceremony or ritual to mark important life events, can be a powerful way to help move us in the direction of our deepest intentions. Clouds in Water teachers and priests are available to custom design these ceremonies to to help with your life transformations.

Typically, baby welcoming ceremonies happen in the first year of life; however, we sometimes hold sangha-wide ceremonies for babies born within the past few years.

Cost varies depending on the time needed to plan and prepare the ceremony. We suggest $200 for a simple Zen Buddhist ceremony (15 minute chanting service at Clouds in Water with a customized dedication). For a more individualized ceremony or one that is off-site, we suggest $300 – $500. However, like all of our offerings at Clouds, we are willing to work with you where you are in terms of your financial situation. Don’t hesitate to reach out.
