My name is Sonja Eckl-Riel and I live on the Isle of Skye, the biggest Island of the Inner Hebrides on the West Coast of Scotland.

I am an Ordained Interfaith Minister, Non-Denominational Celebrant, Spiritual Counsellor & Soul Carer. I graduated at the Interfaith Seminary UK in 2008.

Through Heart and Soul Ceremonies I offer Weddings, Baby Blessings, Rites of Passage, Funeral & Memorial Services, Healing Sessions, Spiritual Support within the community, Worship Services, Meditation and Creative Journey Workshops.

The beautiful nature, landscape and scenery of the Highlands, its mountains and coastlines supports the magic of any ceremony whether it is held in the open at a beach or mountain, castle garden, romantic hotel, on a boat, in my peace chamber on Skye or in your own home.

Together we develop a tailor made ceremony that reflects the unique intention, needs and wishes of those people the ceremony is for.

Within an inclusive, embracing approach the ceremonies are for people of all backgrounds, cultures and creeds. Interfaith ministers serve, support suggest possibilities and solutions embracing the universal truth at the heart of all spiritual traditions and none.
