What is a “Rite of Passage”?
Essentially, when there is a big change happening, we can call it a rite of passage and make a big deal about it. 😉
So if something big is happening to you or someone close to you, you can hold a special ritual, ceremony or celebration. Not sure how to set something up? Click here.
Here are some examples of Rites of Passage:
- Coming of Age
- First Menstruation
- Loss of Virginity
- First Kill (for hunters)
- Big, new purchases (home, car, pet)
- Cutting hair (if it was really long to really short)
- First trip alone (i.e. study abroad)
- High School Graduation
- Off to college/university
- College/university graduation
These are things that are considered “big events” in a person’s life, and things that deserve some recognition of some kind. You don’t have to have a giant party, but you can if you want. The important thing is to mark the occasion for being what it is – a special change.
