"Understanding the nature of impermanence and the importance of ceremonially marking life changes has enabled our human psyche to meet its very nature and to track its own journey around the wheel of our becoming-ness for thousands of years. With most of this knowledge absent in modern society we are missing a major healing modality that has the potential, not to medicate, fix, or suppress, but to validate and partner the excruciating journey through grief, loss, or life-threatening illness into the promise of an initiated life."
