Are you wanting to mark a life transition with intention?

Proceeding through major life events, stages, and transitions of all kinds is an inevitable part of being human. Moving through these changes and transitions with intention, meaning, and support is a whole other thing. At the Somatic Wilderness Therapy Institute, we deeply value the power of Ceremony and Ritual as support for living fuller, more meaningful, and more connected lives.

You landed here because you:

  • Want to move through a significant life transition in an intentional way.
  • Long to live from a more meaningful place and would like support in connecting with what lights up your Soul.
  • Desire guidance in creating a personally meaningful Ceremony or Ritual.
  • Find yourself in the middle of a life transition and want support grieving an old way, acknowledging a next step, or celebrating having come through to the other side.


A short and wide image of a long-exposure start trail, with the following text set on top: rite of pasage - The ceremonial process that marks the transition from one phase of life to another during turning points in life when we go through key changes which impact our identity, behaviors, choices, and roles. - The Rite of Passage ceremony is instrumental in impacting how we navigate and accept growth, challenge, and change.



As members of the Somatic Wilderness Therapy Institute, we are committed to assisting you in creating personally meaningful, culturally relevant Ceremonies and Rites of Passage. We take the time to listen to what you hold meaningful or Sacred, as well as who and what holds the most significance in your life. And we offer you a structure to create relevant ways to mark your transition.
