Rarely an hour passes without carrying my thoughts of Passage Ceremonies. We are in so many ways, now on the early edge of a seismic shift in global consciousness. Late in the game perhaps, but better late than never.

Toward the new cultural mindset for regenerative practices: the nine celebrations through the ages from birth to death. These Passage ceremonies are our Rites, individual as collective.

Here they are, the Nine Passages. If you are neither Woman or Girl, a gender translation will be required.

A pilgrimage to discover your skin in the game will also make you a great storyteller. What is yours to do? What is your highest service?

The old woman who is asking
Has seen value gained,
toward marrying “know thyself”
with a dedication to service.

Many initiates walk continuously.
We are holding hands.
I send you all love!
