Why Culture Needs Rites of Passage - Women's First Blood Ceremony

Contemporary western culture is plagued by stunted growth. Most people do not develop beyond an adolescent level of developmental capacity and relationship--as we see mirrored in politics and media. Culture is longing for the transmission of knowledge by true elders as well as rites and ritual that mark thresholds of growth and transformation. 

In this teaching excerpt from The Artemis School's Evoke Virtual Mystery School Lara Catone explains how rites of passage work on the BodyMind level to help us integrate new versions of ourselves and leverage our true potential. And how a woman's menarche, or first blood ceremony, supports her in authentic sexual expression.
