Interfaith Minister, Annie Blampied is a highly experienced and gifted celebrant. Whatever your needs, a wedding ceremony, a blessing and naming for a baby or child, a funeral, a house blessing, or any other rite of passage, she will be there for you, with her heart-felt style, clear and deep insights, humour and grace!
She also offers one to one spiritual counselling, or mentoring for anyone who longs for inner peace and happiness; or who is so tired of their story that they truly want to let it go. Her spiritual companionship will give you insights, inner strength and courage to bring to the light whatever seems to be the problem, and open to another way. She is also able to offer supervision to other therapists and counsellors, and spiritual direction to anyone wanting support and guidance on their spiritual path.
Annie is a member of FRIM - Forest Row Interfaith Ministers. This is a ministry in Forest Row that recognises the Light in all Beings and joins with people of any faith, (or no faith) to open to Truth and Inner Peace, through joyful and loving activities. Other members of the group are interfaith ministers Amanda Edwards, Jona Eichner and Elizabeth Riminton. Together they hold an awareness of the diverse communities in the village, and act as a bridge between different spiritual/religious groups, with the common goal of experiencing God’s Love. They are a focus point in the community, a gathering place for joyful services and celebration of the turning cycles of the year. To join their mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2015, Annie trained with Soul Midwife, Felicity Warner, to accompany people in the process of dying. See Soul Midwifery page. As an apprentice soul midwife, Annie offers her services for free to anyone wanting support in creating a death plan or spiritual companionship in the days leading to the time of crossing the threshold.
From time to time, Annie writes a blog exploring the themes of forgiveness, especially through her inspiration from A Course in Miracles. She also offers workshops, talks, and guided meditations on the theme of forgiveness, freedom to love and inner peace.
