Sheila and Maria share their experiences with celebrating rites of passage within their families, how it has affected their family relationships and a bit about the cultures that have given us these traditions.
"Every positive change, every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness, involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation, I have never found an exception." - Dan Millman, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior
Throughout our lives, as we learn and grow, we pass through many milestones. The ability to have these milestones witnessed and our accomplishments celebrated together by our families and communities is important to our growth and development as individuals.
In this episode, we share examples of how we've brought some of the great traditions from other cultures into our families as well as the effects we've seen them have on ourselves and our children.
