I have been privileged to create and officiate over 100 weddings, and countless other ceremonies, including: coming of age, Blessing Way, menopause, Croning, significant birthday, death, memorial, funeral, house clearing and blessing, baby blessing, renaming, divorce, and opening and closing ceremonies for organizations, such as The Women of Wisdom Foundation, the Midwest Herbal Conference, Pacific Women’s Herbal Conference, Realize Your Radiance Conference, Women and Spirituality Conference, and the Celebration of International Women’s Day 2017. Perhaps my greatest joy was officiating at my own parent’s fiftieth wedding anniversary when they renewed their vows.

Rev. Judith Laxer
On the Summer Solstice in 1992, I became a licensed, Ordained SHES (Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards) Minister because it provided me with the legal status I sought without limiting me to any particular religious doctrine. This allows me the freedom to create custom ceremonies for individuals based on their Spiritual proclivities. My ceremonies beautifully address the spirit of the occasion, but are never dogmatic.
I specialize in Rite of Passage Ceremonies. A Rite of Passage marks a significant event that sparks a transition from one life phase to another. I customize your ceremony to meet your specific needs and the needs of your family.
New Home or Business Blessing
Opening & Closing Ceremonies
I have been privileged to be a guest minister at the Interfaith Community Sanctuary, Evergreen Unitarian Universalist Church, Bellevue Unitarian Universalist Church, Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church, Amazing Grace Spiritual Center, the Prospect United Church of Christ, and Seattle Unity Church. Please contact me if you’d like to discuss my bringing my message about the Divine Feminine and the spiritual wisdom of nature to your congregation.
I am the founding Priestess of Gaia’s Temple.
