Renee Ukena - One Who Gathers Tribes
« on: May 03, 2013, 10:26:18 PM »
Has anyone ever heard of her?  She claims Cherokee heritage, although I think she was adopted so I am not sure if the Cherokee heritage comes from her birth parents or her adopted parents.  She is from Illinois.

It looks like she was "called" after she became unemployed in 2011.

The similarities between her and Little Grandmother are a little uncanny and she is a fan of the Star Knowledge Conference.

Here is something else she wrote:

Greetings I AM Renee Ukena/One Who Gathers Tribes, Ordained Clergy of the Church of Spiritual Humanism. 
I AM a non-denominational wedding Officiant and I unite Soulmates/Twin Flames.

 Your ceremony should be an expression of the heart and of who you are. It should reflect your dreams, your hopes, and your aspirations for the future. My goal is to tailor your wedding so it is uniquely your own. Whatever your faith or background I will strive to create that perfect moment that you will remember the rest of your life.
 
Services Provided (All services include same-sex couples.):
 • Weddings
 • Commitment Ceremonies
• Affirmation of Love
 • Hand Fasting
 • Vow Renewals
• Spiritual Guidance and or Counseling

Short Ceremony
Traditional Ceremony
Sand and Butterfly Release Ceremony
Unity Candle; Exchange of Promises; Hands of the Bride and Groom; Handfasting Ceremony
Stand-up circle ceremony for the guests; Interaction with couple's mother's, later with all the guests; Elements of Handfasting; Unusual blessing of the rings
Vow Renewals

Ceremonies can have these additional elements added to them.
Blessings from the Goose for your ceremony
I AM Native American and Creator has gifted me with the most beautiful wings of the Canadian Goose.   I would be honored to bless the couple and/or area where the wedding takes place with the wings of the Goose during any ceremony performed.  The Goose signifies family & communication. It is also a symbol of fertility and marital fidelity. 
The Goose brings an innate belief that there is just one special person out there for someone.

Sand Ceremony
Unification ceremonies such as the Sand Ceremony are not only a symbol of togetherness, they are also flexible elements of a wedding. These ceremonies can also be opened up to include some of the important family members. Sometimes children from previous marriages also play a part in the sand ceremony.

Unity Candle Ceremony
The Unity Candle Ceremony represents the union of the two families. The bride and groom light the individual tapers and bring the two flames together to light the larger column.

Hands of the Bride and Groom Ceremony
A reading focusing on the soothing attentions of each the Bride and Groom through their hands.
 
Handfasting Ceremony
Whether binding your love for all eternity or starting out with a year and a day, a Handfasting Ceremony ritual generates the ceremonial union of two spirits, beautifully and magically.
A handfasting can also be ideal for same-sex couples in states where legal marriage is not yet recognized. The beauty of your day will not be marred by politics, but instead, celebrated for the beautiful love you share. After all, that's what a commitment ceremony is all about, whether legally binding or not.

Native American Ceremony
The Native American Ceremony is one that takes place outdoors, with Father Sky as the roof of the most sacred cathedral, and Mother Earth at your feet to hold you, and the trees and plants to surround you and embrace you. The circle will be saged by the Minister, Sacred Tobacco given to the grandfathers & grandmothers of the plants and stone people as gifts for allowing us to do our ceremony in their space.

Ribbon/Dove/Butterfly Release Ceremony
Some possibilities to add to your ceremony - use of Ribbons, or a Dove or Butterfly release.
