“In our modern day culture, there appears to be a distinct lack of ways in which to mark Rites of Passage. There comes, at certain points on the journey through life, a Threshold, accompanied by an instinctual feeling that this should be remembered or celebrated in some way, but which often remains unacknowledged within the Western World.
Below are some of the events, that I consider to be Rites of Passage
Birth Onset of the Menses Breaking of the Voice Wedding / Handfasting Motherhood / Fatherhood / Parenthood The Menopause Elderhood Grandparenthood Becoming Spirit / Death
There are bound to be other milestones on the journey. Perhaps on a more personal level and which signify a new phase in someone’s life. Experiences that you may feel are just as important, to you, your family or friends, and should also be recognized.” *** With this in mind; you may, also, like to see the SPECIAL OCCASIONS & BE UNIQUE pages on this website
