Rites of Passage
Rites of Passage
are part of the forgotten legacy of every woman. The vibration a woman carries forward into her life from her Rites of Passage
awakens within her the recognition of self, place and purpose, which may otherwise have remained dormant through out her life. In the ancient times, it was customary for women of many cultures and societies throughout the world to undergo and be celebrated in Rites of Passage
. In these various ceremonies, initiates were blessed in order to take on the sacred responsibilities of the feminine, and acknowledged for their individual talents.
After their initiation, they were educated to be influential governors, esteemed counselors, respected healers, innovative thinkers, consummate herbalists, spiritual leaders and community builders. This was a part of their legacy as mothers, wives and warriors. In formal temples and mystery schools, they were instructed by initiated craftswomen, or informally instructed by revered clanswomen and grandmothers.
Rites of Passage Ceremony at Womens Ways Mystery School
The Mystery Schools Rites of Passage
Ceremony is a most empowering experience, born of fire and water, earth and air. When a woman, of any age, walks through the willow arch, as her antediluvian grandmothers did, she claims her wholeness and power. She leaves behind her past with its childlike misconceptions of the feminine, She awakens to her authenticity, and no longer needs to relinquish her control and authority to someone or something outside of her Self.
She then steps into a new beginning - free to re-member who she truly is and capable of creating an empowered future based on her true strengths, compassion, receptivity and vulnerability. When she emerges from the waters of initiation and speaks her name, she takes back her true voice, With this voice she reclaims herself as:
* a vessel of beauty
* a conduit of power
* an instrument of peace and harmony
and the womanly expression of the Sacred Feminine in the world
Like the lackluster raw ruby, barely resembling the luminous jewel it will become after it is faceted, a womans untapped feminine potential awaits to be awakened by Rites of Passage
, so, like the ruby, the light within her can be released into the world.
