Rite of Passage Ceremonies

Rite of Passage Ceremonies

Ceremonies would have traditionally featured in the lives of all individuals and are now extremely rare. Marking of the transitions from one phase of life into another highlights and strengthens the connection to yourself, your community, and to nature. Celebrations of the changing of seasons, such as the solstices and equinoxes can be participated in by all, and we can also mark a special event on a more individual level, the end of bed wetting, first day of a new school, a final exam; if the event is important to you then we can help mark it and make it special.

Ethos

We know that Homo sapiens is a keystone species in all of the world’s diverse ecosystems, and that ecological literacy is the foundation for participating in regenerative action leading to environmental conditions conducive to the continuation of life. 

The first step towards ecological literacy is a comfortable immersion in the natural world; safely exploring the life that surrounds us, developing self-awareness and self-reliance, and coming to understand our place in systems both social and ecological.

‘Now I see the secret of making the best persons, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth’ 

– Walt Whitman
