With one foot rooted deeply in the past and one foot stretching into adolescence, young women experience a gap during their tween and teen years that stirs uncertainty, isolation, and chaos. During this crucial time, mothers can help their daughters navigate the increasingly sexualized, cybersaturated, and pressurized culture through the incorporation of rituals.
Rituals define a significant transitional point, a movement toward something new. During the preteen years (ages 8-13), daughters are moving toward a new landscape of adolescence—a socially, emotionally, and physically unfamiliar place. Reviving the ancient practice of marking a daughter’s life passage as important and sacred can ease—and celebrate—this transformational time of self-discovery.
Inspired by traditional coming-of-age ceremonies from around the world, mothers and daughters explore how to incorporate rituals in their lives to facilitate feeling close, supported, and self-confident. Using this step-by-step, hands-on process, mothers and daughters also deepen their connection and strengthen one of the most important relationships in their lives.
Mothers and their 8-13 year old daughters are welcome.
