through to death and all in between we are moving through
passages each day of our lives.
With each passage, we can celebrate, mourn
or do nothing at all. What we choose to do or not do
is up to us as individuals. Of course there are passages
in life that we want to share with others for we can
have a major interest in another person's personal passage
There is birth and life, our first step,
first tooth, first day of school, first haircut. Oh, and
what about the passage of being able to cross a street
by ourselves! Learning to drive, getting our first car
or motorcycle and what about our first apartment or home.
I tell you, I could go on and on and on
Think of all the passages you have gone
through in your life thus far. Ones which you kept to
yourself, or ones you shared and celebrated with others.
Each year we have a "birthday",
what I call our "personal power day". This is
our own day to celebrate, as we desire. This is also a
day that your mother can celebrate as a day of birth:
"giving of life".
The list of our Rites of Passages is almost
endless, thus I have decided to start this section as
a place of sharing our passages with others.
Help us get this going by sending us one
or more of your passages. Tell us what passage and what
you did to celebrate or mourn. You can tell us what rituals
you did, ones that were done for you.
Did you have a "Coming of Age" ritual/celebration?
Did you hold one for your children as they came of age?
Do you plan on holding a coming of age for your children?
Dedication or Initiation?
Graduation, promotion party, move of residence, new home?
As I said, this list seems to be endless
as we go through life's experiences!
I hope you enjoy this section and find it informative.
Please read on....

Please continue to return to this page as we will be

you in your next right of passage.
