I am Rev Barbara Parker, a Life-Cycle Celebrant and Metaphysical Minister, happily working with many different clients who are engaged in the process of living through joy and sorrow, challenge and opportunity. I co-create ceremonies from birth through end of life. With a strong interest in serving those who are approaching end of life, I offer consultation and preparation services.
Though Canmore has been my home for 35 years, I am now also living and working on Vancouver Island. I am happy to say Threshold Ceremonies services are available in both location at select times of the year. I am married to Tony Bloom, a sculptor who has gifted me a life full of creativity and beautiful objects. Not to mention a pretty terrific son.
My path to becoming a Celebrant and a Metaphysical Minister wound through personal growth, a questing heart, a love of writing, and an abiding interest in people. My spiritual line draws from a deep belief in the power of compassion, love and curiosity. The creativity of creating one of a kind ceremonies that are personally meaningful always results in moments that are absolutely memorable. I am honoured to make wonderful intimate connections with my clients. Being able to be a part of both weddings and memorials for friends and neighbours in my community has been a special honour. My favourite part? Meeting the new babies!
