About PassageWay Arts

Genevieve Portraits-8233.jpg

PassageWay Arts is an Austin, Texas based business that provides counseling and celebrant services.

Clients are of diverse backgrounds, ages, religions, genders, and orientations. Some are looking for individual or couple counseling to help them navigate the waves of change.

Others are seeking a celebrant and ceremony designer to officiate a wedding, memorial service, house blessing, or other sacrament.

The common thread is that they find them selves at a point of transition, and are seeking a more conscious and creative way to change. 

 

About Genevieve

Hi y'all, I am Genevieve. PassageWay Arts is the business that I made to facilitate the work I want to do; serving people who are in life transitions. My technique is to use compassionate counseling, the creative arts, and sacred ceremony to create consciousness and ease the pain of change.

As a healing professional, I aim to be gentle and playfully directive at the same time. 

As a celebrant, I call on that which is both me and larger than myself to evoke mystery and wonder.

As an expressive arts teacher, my goal is to invite people to their own power.

The magic happens when clients CAN BE  fully present for their own transformation.

The thing I love most in life are those moments when something authentic happens... when someone bravely steps into their wisdom to express truth. 

You know the feeling; the room falls silent and everyone gets goose bumps. I crave being a part of those moments, and I want to do it every day. 

The first place where I felt this electric authenticity happening was the theatre, then the classroom, the church, and the therapy office. I have studied, apprenticed and worked professionally in all of these arenas; chasing the goose bumps. 

Eventually I learned that I could conjure up these magic moments of expression anywhere...and I do. 

At work, at home, and at play; I always try to invoke the authentic and to live deeply. 

As an artist, I am a misfit; trying all the things and doing them more passionately than perfectly. Many things appeal to me: dance, music, painting, theatre, gardening, party planning... but mostly I am a poet. The other hobbies and artistic mediums are all fun and games. Poetry calls me home and shakes me up.

Being shaken up usually leads straight to goose bumps.
