Sacred Emergence: Initiation into Adulthood for Young Women

Sacred Emergence provides a doorway for young women to become adult women with a mature orientation to their soul-discovery, their authentic service to others, and a connection to the natural web and flow of life.

There is a natural stage in a young woman’s life when she begins to prepare for the deeper growth that leads to adulthood. This usually happens around the ages of 16-25. Subtle or obvious, she may have the compelling urge to leave home, adventure out into the world and begin her search for deeper meaning and purpose. Looking within, she feels called to discover her gifts and the greater purpose of her life.

At this time in life we naturally—consciously or unconsciously—have an impulse to seek an initiatory experience, a fundamental shift in how we see our lives, ourselves, and our world. What we seek may be difficult to define and it may take us into realms that are dangerous and even life-threatening, or at the least, outside the values and life experience we have experienced up to now. As a result, we can get stuck in adolescence rather than understand and integrate our passage into adulthood.

Sacred Emergence is a way to honor the natural ‘impulse of life’ in a conscious and sacred way in our contemporary society.
