Important thresholds in life need to be consciously celebrated. Rituals support us in the process of change. They alleviate fears, give us strength and confidence. They help us to let go of the old and turn to the new. They invite us to pause and become aware and give us space to find a new identity in the process of change.
Life rituals have always embedded the individual in the community and are a sign of appreciation for ourselves and others. Everything has its place and finds its proper order.
