In today's society, there is not much knowledge about Rites of Passage anymore. Most people don't know what makes a Rite of Passage and the phases of one. You can read more about it on the page Rites of Passage.
Life presents us with two of the three phases and it is almost impossible to return to a knowing community or have an elder listen to the experience and acknowledge the transition. We have many old people, yet hardly any elders that have completed their Rites of Passage. An Elder has the wisdom of knowing how light and shadow work, who knows how to listen and do it without judgment, perceiving the parts that are important for the person who got initiated.
I worked for many years as a Rite of Passage guide. Although I no longer prepare people and accompany them during their solo time of fasting. I still listen to the 'stories' of the challenge or ordeal. Learning about the need for that, I am offering it to the public.
