Spring 2020 dates TBA

Initiating girls into womanhood requires a community of initiated women to do it, but if you’re like most women you didn’t receive the gift of these ceremonies when you experienced your own transitions. FOTE founder, Lorene Wapotich is a national lecturer and workshop leader on girls’ coming of age ceremonies and rites of passage, and in this workshop you’ll explore these rites with her and dive into:

Rites of Passage – What are they? Why do we need them, especially during adolescence? How can we create meaningful ceremonies in modern times?

Changes ahead! – The low down on girls’ physical, emotional, and cognitive changes as they enter puberty and what they need from you as an adult woman, including resources for how to talk with girls about these changes.

Moontime – How to (and how not to) celebrate a girl’s first menstruation, and how to honor your own retroactively.

The Life Spiral – A marvelous map of life transitions, which will help you learn what you need to know about celebrating them, and how to claim your Wise Woman by honoring your own passages.

For 18 years, Lorene Wapotich has helped hundreds of young women develop stronger relationships with nature, their authentic selves, and a community of female mentors and role models. In this dynamic, experiential weekend, you’ll join Lorene and other concerned women – mothers, stepmothers, aunts, grandmothers, teachers and friends – to weave anew meaningful initiation ceremonies to empower girls as they move from girlhood to womanhood. The result will be practical experience and tools you can use in your own family or community.
