Reverend Rose Marie Studer

Interfaith Minister

Hello, I am Rose Marie an Ordained Interfaith Minister of Emerson Theological Institute, Oakhurst, California. Welcome to Graceful Mournings. May I express my heart-felt condolences in your loss.

Specializing in ceremony rituals, as a professional celebrant, I have witnessed the positive impact that rituals have on families and their friends as they navigate the grief process, forgiveness and healing. Although grief can be a very private and sometimes, lonely process, I believe it is important to have a hand to hold as we walk through these challenging and confusing times. With loving support and guidance we may walk this passageway together, allowing for the light of love, healing and transformation to be revealed.

I am a spiritual practitioner with the Center of Spiritual Living and I support all families, whether they consider themselves “spiritual but not eligious” or atheist or agnostic. In addition often recognize their beliefs as a personal relationship with God, a Creative Intelligence – or Mother Nature. I am skilled in “spiritual companioning” – a communication skill assisting people in revealing the truths and answers they have within themselves.

Currently I am completing a PhD in Religious Studies from the Emerson Institute, in Forgiveness as a Daily Spiritual Practice coming from a large family I have attended many funerals and assisted in facilitating them.

In addition I have worked in Hospice Centers with patients and their families for over ten years, guiding them in the transition of the dying process.

I will support you in funerals, memorials and celebration of life services meeting your vision.

Please contact me for an initial complimentary consultation.
