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. I serve on one of the committees with the Canmore Palliative Care Society.
Canmore has been my home for 35 years, and the high and wild places in the Bow Valley fill my spirit. 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!
