Erin (Oakheart) Higgins


Independent Celebrant -Mid-Atlantic Region (Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C.) "You may grieve however you need to grieve, feel however you need to feel, and release your loved ones into memory however you see fit." People of all spiritual paths deserve ceremonies that comfort and support them through difficult times. I take a creative, problem-solving approach to designing meaningful rituals for mixed-belief families and groups by building upon your shared values. I offer non-dogmatic, non-judgmental guidance for interfaith, pagan, humanist, and non-traditional rituals and ceremonies.

I am a celebrant of all Endings. While my focus is on funerals and memorials, I can also assist you in creating divorce celebrations, cleansing ceremonies, cord-cutting rituals, Dead Name funerals for individuals undergoing identity transition, and any other kind of rite-of-passage that enables release of the spirit so that you may move onto your next phase of being.
I’m a graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids’ Funeral Celebrancy program, Serving the Living and the Dead and an OBOD Druid. As co-leader of the Circle of Three Trees grove, I facilitate dramatic seasonal rituals and lead group meditations. I am also available to assist professional Hospice workers, death doulas, and hospitals seeking help in giving spiritual support to dying pagans and followers of Earth-based spiritualities.
