Women’s Rite of Passage Ceremonies
Celebrating Rites of Passage is an opportunity to draw upon the strength and support of the community and connect more deeply with one’s power and inner wisdom.
Through music, chanting, dancing, ritual, and storytelling, the space and participants are prepared for the sacred work. Then in sacred ceremony the transition is commemorated. The journey and power that come from the life passage is celebrated within a uniquely designed Ceremony for the woman of honor.
These ceremonies have also become a bridge for many women to get in touch with their own Divinity/Goddess Within. Women who otherwise might not be exposed to circle work and Divine Feminine Spirituality come to honor their friend and are willing to risk when the focus and honoring is on someone they care about. I feel honored to open the door to this powerful venue for honoring, healing, and empowering women. Blessed Be!
Moontime Ceremony is a Rite of Passage celebration that
honors Women’s Power, Women’s Wisdom and the Sacredness
of Women’s Bodies and her menstrual blood. Within a Sacred
Circle, women friends and relatives gather together to bless
the-way for the young maiden as she passes through the portal
into womanhood. To celebrate her moon/menstrual cycle, her
inner/outer beauty and the empowerment of her Spirit; the womenfolk will present the maiden with loving gifts of wisdom and support. This Ceremony can be preformed for any age woman who wishes to integrate deeper with her moontime.
The Blessingway is a spiritual baby shower. The birthing mother’s female friends and family are invited to join in sacred ceremony and embrace the opportunity to offer blessings (words of support and encouragement in stories, poems, songs, memories) to the birthing mother for a safe, spontaneous, natural beautiful birth and loving mothering experience. The word “Blessingway” comes from the Navajo people,
where a woman full of new life is held in honor for bring a
new life into the tribe. One way blessing are offered is
through washing and drying her feet in ceremony.
So in keeping with this tradition an evening is set aside
to affirm and empower the birthing mother and all the
other women as creatrix of their universe because they
all have new creations to conceive and birth anew through
many rituals, songs and affirming words.
Each Blessingway take on the uniqueness of the mother
it is created for components are added or removed based
on the individual woman’s needs. If fear or burdens are a
distraction to the birthing mother than a meditation like
“putting down the burden basket” would be added.
If the mother is in conflict about her happiness for this pregnancy because of the miscarriage she experienced previously then a healing and acknowledging ritual would be added at the beginning of the ceremony.
A Sacred Ceremony to mark the transition from mothering and managing her family to stepping into caring for her realm as a guide and resource. Being a Queen is demonstrated by exerting her womanly power in the realm of her own life and in the dominion entrusted to your care. As a Queen she rules regally by applying the wisdom, integrity and influence to safeguard the cycles of life. She learns to regulate the flow of energy and goods to enhance the wellbeing of all creatures within your circle of influence. Our queen aspect responds to our divine calling and fulfills one’s purpose and responsibilities with dedication, practice and delight. This comes with responsibility as all power does but it also comes with opportunity to influence and love. So in Sacred Ceremony the sisterhood gathers to honors, encourage, and empower the Queen onto her new path. Blessed Be!
