Journeying Through the Thresholds: Beginning the Passage to Young Womanhood

Posted on 4/25/2014 by SuperUser Account

A Weekend Passage for 5th Grade Girls April 25th-27th, 2014 Friday 5:30-8pm , Saturday 10-5pm, Sunday 10-5pm (family ceremony at end of final day) Investment: $250, Early Bird $200 by March 25th Boulder, Colorado


The passage into young womanhood is a potent, beautiful and sometimes challenging time in girls’ lives. By intentionally honoring, guiding, and celebrating this shift, we can support our girls to emerge into this next phase of life with confidence, resilience, compassion, and a strong sense of their own unique gifts. Throughout this weekend journey, girls will have the opportunity to reflect on this passage, express their creativity, share their unique perspectives, discover more about their strengths and challenges, and intentionally cross over a threshold into this early phase of young womanhood. The weekend will offer a variety of experiences—including group time, solo time on the land, creative expression, movement, and heart-centered conversation.

This passage experience includes:

  • Group of 10-12 girls maximum
  • A special 2 hour parent meeting before the 3-day passage 
  • Exploration of themes: transition, friendship, empowerment, body changes (puberty, menstruation), identity, gifts and challenges
  • Community building & social and emotional skill building
  • Solitude and time on the land, including a short solo journey
  • Council, heart-centered dialogue, simple ceremony & creative expression through a variety of modalities.
