RITES OF PASSAGE

Passage Rituals recognize and celebrate the various transitions, and ages/stages of our lives. Rites of Passages have been rooted in pre-industrial traditions and cultures from around the world.  In todays modern, go-go lifestyle, something is lost when we do not move through these life transitions in a held and supported way.  Living Earth seeks to bridge the void of these rituals in our modern day lives and bring them back to our people.
