Holistic Ring Design for Couples

— Initiating the Conscious Wedding Journey

Rings are the bookends of the wedding journey  —  the ring symbolizes the intention to marry, and are exchanged in ceremony to mark that the marriage is complete. The rings hold the arc of the story, beginning to end, and live on as a reminder of these original intentions deep into the marriage.

The course 6 week course is interactive and immersive - part self-guided, part live workshop with Kate Ellen. You will join your beloved on a journey to choose a ring with love and meaning, all while deepening your connection and building a foundation for navigating the complex life transition of becoming a married couple, bookending your experience with your unique intentions.

In this course you will learn how to choose a ring that reflects your values and the unique beauty of your relationship, serving as as a guide for the rest of your wedding journey.

This course brings consciousness to the entire process  — from proposal to ceremony  — ensuring that you start your marriage fully aligned and joyously connected, not just going through unexamined traditions or expectations.
