Our Natural Rites of Passage
We have natural phases as we age that mark a person's transformation into the next. In past and present Earth-based cultures have significant ceremonies and rituals revolving around marking that transitionary period of our life. A moment to remember and look back on as one changes and forms into what is being initiated. We still can see evident ones such as weddings, baptisms, Bat-mitzvah, bar mitzvah, however, we are missing key markers in our personal transformations. Do you ever wonder why we have so many life crises??
I invite you to reimagine the time periods of your life as rituals of transformation. We will go over anthropological + archaeological evidence to give us a new cosmo-vision, a new map of what could be. I invite you to join, so we can create a blueprint and integrate a new tradition you want for your life, and one that perhaps will be followed by the following generation.
