Why Rites of Passage? What is the Need? What are they for?

Rites of Passage: themes and needs.

Let's identify and recognise some of the core needs behind rites of passage.

Why do we do it? What are rites of passage for? What happens if we don't have (healthy/ conscious) rites of passage or support in our life altering transitions?

We discuss 6 core needs and how these can look across the life cycle, in individuals, relationships and family, and in relating with our purpose and gifts.
