THE RITES OF PASSAGE
SALT SPRING ISLAND
In Rites of Passage we explore our dreams.
We learn to ritually and magically work with them through the lens of myth, stories and faery tales.
We discover how life is tending each of us in our own Rites of Passage.
The skills of trance, dream magic, aspecting (divine possession)
and storytelling are woven together with these tools of myth and legend
into a story where we explore and recognize more deeply
that we are the heroic ones needed to get us through these troubled times.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. And yet like any hero’s tale we will encounter blocks and obstacles that must be overcome or resolved. We are not on this journey alone; we will find helpers along the way and dive deep into ourselves to bring out what was there all along. We will deepen our skills as collaborative priestesses and co-create the magic together as we sift through the stories of our lives, our own rites of passage and how that supports the collective work ahead of us. We become vehicles to empowerment and magic moving out into the world and to mark our journey we will create our personal Rite of Passage.
We respectfully acknowledge and honour that we gather on the unceded territory of xʷənen̕əč presently known as Salt Spring Island, Coast Salish Territory, British Columbia.

My value is to turn no one away for lack of funds and to fairly compensate women who work in a world where we’re still paid less than men.
If you are experiencing economic hardship please email us as we aim to set aside scholarship spaces.
In recognition that financial circumstance is often connected to systems of privilege and oppression, scholarship priority is for folks who are Indigenous, of Colour, single parents, or those who are living with disability or illness.
If you wish to take one of these spots please let us know in your application email so we know where to allocate these spaces.
This class is in person on Salt Spring Island. We are not equipped to provide lodging or food. Due to the nature of this intimate work, we ask that students attend the whole weekend.
We welcome all genders, all gender histories, all races, all ages over 18 and sexual orientations and all those differences of life situation, background, and ability that increase our diversity.
All living beings are worthy of respect. All are supported by the sacred elements of air, fire, water, earth & Spirit. We work to create and sustain communities and cultures that embody these values, that can help to heal the wounds of the earth and Her peoples, and that can sustain us and nurture future generations.
