Rites of Passage M5241

Birth, death, wedding-handfasting, coming of age, divorce – understanding these transitional moments in the life cycle and how to prepare for them will enable the Pagan minister to guide others through the times that define our lives. Learn to follow legal guidelines, when necessary, bridge gaps between Pagan and non-Pagan friends and family, and still help to create ritual that is deep, meaningful, and abiding.
