Red Tent/ First Moon Cycle - Coming To Age For The Feminine Maiden:
A coming into maiden age, or Red Tent, is considered a rite of passage in some circles when a young woman experiences her first moon cycle (or bleeding cycle). This is a time to celebrate and welcome her into womanhood. This rite of passage is open to any age and anyone who identifies as female or transgender.

House, Land, Business or Other Space Blessing/ Smudging:
A house blessing is typically offered soon after a new move, a remodel, new addition, or after a physical or emotional transition has taken place in the house. House blessings are also common during the holidays or new year. Benefits include establishing a new rooted energy, generate space for conscious choices, reground energetic chaos, leaving illnesses, increase positive energy flow, create a nurturing clean & cozy happy vibe, uplift sadness or loss and welcoming in a new family member into the home.

Separation/Handparting/ Divorce Ceremony:
This ceremony of dissolving relationship can be offered for one person, two or as a family. Sometimes in life a rite of passage also means separating for new beginnings in a conscious way.
