“Both ceremony and rites of passage are highly important to keeping the psyche whole and integrated.” Kaye Doran
This week we dive into the importance of ceremony and rites of passage. We explore what a ceremony is and when they are required, as well as life’s rites of passage moment. A rite of passage is a journey taken where you die to your old life, or self, stepping into the unknown and taking on a new sense of self. Ceremony can be done alone or as a gathering with others to mindfully, and spiritually, acknowledge and celebrate an event. Many modern-day ceremonies have lost the art of the real meaning.
