Entheos IrelandBaby naming and welcoming ceremonies
At Entheos Ireland, we acknowledge and embrace the fact that families and parenthood are diverse, and babies join families in many different ways.
Our baby welcoming ceremonies are not just about welcoming and naming the new baby/family member, but equally about honoring and embracing the family in its new shape, as it forms itself around this new addition. We acknowledge the grit and glory of the birth experience, and we incorporate the truth of how this precious person came to be a part of this unique family.
The purpose of the ceremony …
To welcome this particular child into the world and into this family & community.
To support the parents in their new role.
To acknowledge the special role of Siblings, Grand-parents and God/Guide-Parents.
To celebrate our interconnectedness as a community and society.
To share our gratitude and joy at the great privilege of being able to come together in safety and peace with the sole purpose of celebrating this new addition to our world.
