Rites of Passage ceremonies, are an opportunity for you to pause and reflect on your life. To celebrate milestones and accomplishments. They give you time to acknowledge and celebrate who you are and the impact you have made in the world. Some, open a space to heal and move forward, by giving you the opportunity to release your stories that no longer serve you, making space to start the next phase of your journey from a place of power.
In our culture we have for the most part left behind celebrating the different stages in our life’s journey. How would your experience have changed if you had been through a ceremony to mark your transition into or through puberty, adulthood, parenthood, change of life, pregnancy, birth of children and death of some-one you love?
