Living in harmony with all that is a part of you is the creator's divine will and 
the most sacred of all relationships is between soul mates. Marriage is a part 
of a whole system with an identity of its own.  A marriage is a part of a whole 
system of religion, beliefs and customs, ethnicity, social relationships, sexual 
practices, economics, and for the producing of children. In marriage there will 
be new demands, responsibilities, expectations, new roles to play, and new 
goals to achieve.

The Nu African Ceremony based on the traditions of West Africa opens with 
the community drum call and libation.  Highlights of the ceremony include 
the Wedding Party Processional led by dancers (dancers are optional), The 
Community Vows, Family Gift Presentations, Ceremony of the Elements, 
Divine Union Vows and Consecrations. This format can be applied to 
weddings of all sizes, from a small family private ceremony to a very large 
community event.  

The Kemetic Ceremony based on the traditions of ancient North East Africa 
is a journey through the spiritual principle of the Ntru (divine beings) that 
will govern the commitment of the families in the sacred union. Each 
ceremony is uniquely based on the dominant spiritual reflections of each 
couple. However, standard to each ceremony is a Proverbial Readings, 
Commitment Vows, Sacred Anointing, Community Gifting and The Chant 
and Dance of the Ntru.

All weddings are performed by licensed ministers and priests for legal filings 
or if a strictly spiritual union is desired with public ceremony, that is 
acceptable as well. To request your complimentary initial consultation for 
counseling and wedding preparations, Contact Us.

ALOP Naming Ceremonies

At the very beginning of life, one of the most important gifts a family gives the new little one is a name and sometimes, as adults, as we move from purpose to purpose along the journey to reaching our highest self in this life, these occasions too are marked with receiving a new name that compliments and inspires new paths of living. A Life Of Peace specializes in creative ceremony to help individuals, families and communities celebrate this special occasion. Contact us for Seven Day New Born Naming, Adult and Youth Ceremonies​.
