Rites of Passage support us in moving from one chapter of our lives to another. Whether the threshold we are crossing is one flavoured with celebration, grief, or a little of both, a bespoke Rite can help us achieve the closure, integration, and transformation that we seek, and allow us to step wholeheartedly over that threshold and into what comes after.
Your Rite is tailored to you and your unique needs; it can be as people or private, as sacred or secular, as indoors or out in the wilds as your desire. It can include a cleansing or releasing of what has gone before; the crossing of a threshold; the taking on of a new name or title; the witnessing and affirmation of your true self; the setting of intentions for the future; and/or the celebration of you in your new life phase or identity.
Some reasons for having a Rite of Passage might include:
- Taking a new name
- Transitions such as puberty or the menopause
- Gender transition
- Stepping into parenthood or elderhood
- Surgery, or the beginning or end of an illness or disability
- Significant Loss
- New beginnings
