Pagan Rites of Passage: Rituals to Mark Life's Milestones

Paganism is filled with Rites of Passage. We participate in dedication and initiation ceremonies. We celebrate life's transitions with coming of age and croning rituals. If Paganism is a celebration of life then the Rites of Passage we participate in are the mile markers of that celebration.

Join us here at Patheos Pagan as we explore the many and varied Rites of Passage that inform Modern Pagan practice.
