Girls’ Rites of Passage

Cross culturally for all adolescent girls marks a pivotal time of feminine development. It truly is an unfolding of trust, innocence, truth, self, and BEAUTY.  The Sacred Feminine embodies freedom, contemplation, love, friendship, at the heart of each girl’s being. Experiential activities and ceremony are created for girls to step into the next phase of development. Our girls rites of passage ceremonies support the transition from ‘girl’ to ‘young woman’ to occur with confidence and peace. The underpinnings of this offering are inclusive of all spiritual preferences, while honoring Indigenous perspectives (what is natural at one’s core). It is a continuation or beginning for a young woman and each mother alike to ask herself, “What does it mean to be a woman here on Mother Earth in our times?”
