The only constant in life is change.” – Heraclitus

Sometimes we choose change and sometimes change chooses us.

Throughout human history, people have developed rituals to mark the most profound of life’s changes, including birth, the transition to adulthood, marriage, and death. These rites of passage are essential markers for the individual and the community.

Today, many of these markers have been lost, but the need to acknowledge life’s changes remains. Whether it is the joy of a new baby, the excitement of a marriage, or the sorrow of a divorce or death, change requires individuals and communities to let go of one stage of life and turn toward the next. There is much we can learn from life transitions if we are willing to pause, reflect, acknowledge, and embrace the transformative power of change.

Let’s travel the journey of change together.
