Ceremonies Performed by Zhi Dao Guan, The Taoist Center

Ceremonies and rituals are one way of marking our transitions and celebrating important events. Zhi Dao Guan, The Taoist Center can assist you in designing and performing ceremonies that are derived from Taoist ritual, inter faith, or non-denominational paths.

Ordained Taoist priest, Dr. Alex Feng, and priestess, Dr. Charlene Ossler,  are available to perform weddings, vow renewals, commitment and affirmation ceremonies, funeral services, memorials, christenings and other ceremonies that are customized to the preferences of those involved.

Dr. Feng has been solemnizing marriages since the 1970s and several of those marriages are depicted in the photographs on this page. We require two face-to-face or telephonic conversations with Dr. Feng, Dr. Ossler and the wedding couple in advance of the ceremony. Drs. Feng and Ossler assist the couple in designing a ceremony that has meaning for them and encourage the bride and groom to select readings, poems, songs, music, and vows that are distinctive. If the ceremony requires the staff to travel, the travel expenses and per diem are added onto the basic ceremony fee.

Celebrate in your own way – these are ceremonies are drawn from your heart and individualized so they are an extraordinary expression of amazing people. Call the Center today at 510-336-0129 to reserve the date for your joyful celebration.
