Ritual and Rites of Passage


"Ritual is necessary for us to know anything."

~Ken Kesey


Rituals are ways of defining what is meaningful and important. The value of a ritual, however, comes from "its ability to connect you to a larger context that clarifies your relationship to yourself, others and your place in the universe."


Rituals have a way of marking important passages of time. Rituals also help with closing one chapter of life and the beginning of something new.  Rituals are vital in the process of change.

  • Weddings and Ritualized Partnering


  • Initiations into Womanhood: girls coming into their blood
