“A Rite of Passage is an official ceremony or informal activity that marks an important stage or occasion in a person’s life.” ~ Cambridge Dictionary
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. Rituals are a healthy way for people to intentionally acknowledge transitions and embrace the transformations these life changes inevitably bring.
