Ceremonies for milestones and transitionS
from house blessings to baby welcomings and more
Mark the milestones
Some moments in life are big. They are the pivot points, the thresholds, the crossroads.
Honoring the important events of our lives makes them more meaningful. Many important occasions (birth of a child, decade birthdays, retirements, wedding and baby showers) are honored with fanfare and community participation.
Others are much more intimate. Sometimes, big steps like starting school, leaving home, changing jobs or homes get lost in the hectic details. And some are barely recognized, even by ourselves.
A few thoughtful additions can add depth, meaning and sustenance to all of these special days.
Even the private or difficult ones
Other momentous moments are downplayed, ignored or dishonored. Consider divorce. Weddings are typically very public celebrations, rich with traditions. Divorce, by contrast, is often private and held at arm’s length.
Yet how fitting to mark the endings in our lives, whether it be the end of a job, a year, or a marriage. You can ceremonially release yourself (and your ex or boss) from the promises you made, with gifts to honor who you are now, and in the company of the people who loved and supported you through the process.
Ceremonies honor the circle of life
A ceremony can help us be more present in our lives by acknowledging the significant comings and goings, changes and growth, leaps of faith and even the ordinary days. Marking significant milestones acknowledges their importance and their impact on your journey.
