What a privilege to be asked to hold space in this way. The teen herself asked for this! What a gift, to feel the village circle up to create a culturally responsive and relevant ceremony. From little sisters to wise crones, these are the moments that mark our lives. These are the forever memories that shape us, the ones we can feel right as they are happening... we are all changed by these moments.
With holy reverence to the female body and the ancient circles rippling around us all ~ We are blessed! May all young women have this opportunity. May all mothers be held in their ever transforming task of holding. May all female bodies be respected and kept safe.
May we all be guided towards supporting teens and their families in receiving the helping hands they need along the way.
