Self Ceremony is the celebration of self-care as a ceremony with yourself.
By turning a ritual into a ceremony you become more in tune with what is truly meaningful to you and hold space to celebrate it.Self-care becomes an experience that requires that you set time aside for yourself, a mindful pause, that not only grounds you in the present moment, but also paves the way to access your internal world.
It’s an experience from beginning to end, a reflection of what matters to you and the ways you want to take care of your needs. And by making these choices you are choosing your authentic self over and over, from a place of love, self-worth, nourishment and beauty.
We wish to encourage you on your journey, stimulating your own abilities to heal and understand your personal power through crystals and plants as your allies.

These are the types of Self Ceremonies we celebrate:
- a connection with your sensual Self through Pleasure Wands
- a meditative kind of Skincare
- a way to honor your Body
We are here and we care. We are a small business and we love our community. We love to learn and grow and heal together. If you have any ideas, comments, suggestions, questions, need someone to listen to you, we are here.
This is your Self Ceremony. We hope you make your Self at home and cherish this experience as much as we do. We welcome you to take whatever resonates with you and share it with those that make you vibrate higher.
About the founder
I’ve recently been asked if Self Ceremony is a Black-owned business, which I believe is a great way of being mindful of where and what you are investing in.
I thought this should also be made clear here, for those maybe scared to ask. (Ask!) Self Ceremony is owned and solely run by me, Mariana, a queer woman from Argentina. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I lived all my life in Buenos Aires till 2014 when I decided to move to Brooklyn, NY by myself. There I met an awesome New Yorker and in September, 2020 moved him (and our cat) to the desert in Southern California.
Spanish is my first language and I feel more comfortable writing in English than speaking it. Mostly because I’m shy and a “recovering perfectionist" but hey, I’m working on it :)
I don’t talk much about myself on Self Ceremony's social media because that’s not what Self Ceremony is about. But I believe in investing in relationships and projects I can relate with. I hope this little intro helps us get to know each other and sparks a conversation. You can always find me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Self Ceremony is and always will be a space for community and diversity. A space where joy and pleasure are celebrated, never something to feel guilty about. A space for being, learning and unlearning. A way to honor our time to rest, recover and reflect.
Some words that resonate deeply with me right now:
"Give yourself time and space to restore and regenerate as often as you need to. Make that the foundation of your practice. How you care for your body, mind, heart and spirit directly affects how you care for everybody else. Including this most magnificent world, who needs us all so much more now than ever.”
