Passage Rituals recognize and celebrate the various transitions, and ages/stages of our lives. Do you ever feel like something was missing in your teenage years or feel the need to honor and step into your current life stage now? Most of us in our modern day culture, are in this boat and it can lead to a feeling of something missing in life and a loss of connection to self and to life in general.
Imagine a weekend away…a weekend in the mountains of the Appalachians, eating tasty food, your senses breathing in deeply the crisp spring air and the songs of spring bird migrants. Imagine a weekend in which you choose to step fully into your womanhood, giving yourself and other women the wisdom and encouragement you wished you had received as a young woman. Imagine a weekend in which you search your heart and soul for what needs mending, grieving all the aspects of your femininity that culture didn’t support. Imagine discovering sacred ceremony within yourself and allowing it to flow over in to your life today. Imagine being witnessed and held and laughed with by a vibrant, safe group of women. And imagine stepping back into your life powerfully, feeling relief, great joy and celebration for the gift it is to be a woman……and to be YOU.
A Rite of Passage is not just a four day event. By signing up, please know you are committing to preparation beforehand that includes journaling and reflection, reaching out to other women to support and anchor you, and donating or preparing food for the weekend. Rites of Passage take a community and are worth the time and effort!
Payment: $225 (suggested donation). This program is a service to our community. A team of several women feel so strongly about providing this powerful experience that they completely donate their time for the entire four-day weekend and some before too! By the staff not giving themselves payment, we keep the costs down to paying for facilities, firewood, admin time, food, supplies etc. This is a gift we give joyfully because YOU and your sacred journey are worth it!
Rites of Passage are a sacred birthright, so though the program costs about $225 per person, we gratefully accept any amount above or below that. Please search deep within and give all that you can, above the suggested donation if possible! The more you give, the more we can assure this program for future women and girls who truly cannot afford it. If you are one of those who can’t afford the suggested donation, please, COME!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Erin know what you feel you can pay. We do ask for a $100 deposit to hold your spot, however once again if you are unable to pay that, all you need to do is contact Erin.
Search your heart and discern what generous donation you can make to ensure that we can continue to offer these programs to girls and women for years to come.
