ABOUT US

Together as a community we are exploring what it means to be a young person in these times. We offer a Rites of Passage program for children even if they do not identify with a particular gender. The children began working with the mentors at the age of five and continue building a relationship with them and our community to the age of twelve. With the young ones we are in no hurry to have them grow up so we make sure and have plenty of space for exploration, fun and playing.  As the children grow so does the content of what we are working towards. We encourage continuing connections after the children leave our program.

 

The twelve year olds are witnessed in a week long Rites of Passage ceremony where they courageously and consciously cross over a threshold into becoming more fully self-empowered beings! They can only do this after having been in our program for at least a year, preferably more (the oldest child we start with is 11 years old). These children are making sure to pay attention and honor their transition from a child to becoming young resilient adults. They do not do this alone, they are joined by elders, their parents, friends and the greater community that supports them in this bold, important work. The Rites of passage work is seasonally based and grounded in nature and its woven throughout all our Moon Sister programs while being age appropriate for each group. It runs all year with on-going once a month gatherings, workshops, ceremonies and camps.

The girls/others will gain social and personal tools that support them in becoming fully expressed, healthy people with gifts to share with the world. By identifying and celebrating their unique voice, they will build confidence, self worth, work with vulnerability, deepen their relations and be part of a community that honors them as they are. We understand that it takes a village to raise a well rounded and healthy person. We would be honored if you and your child would like to journey with us.
