Rites of Passage are sacred life events which were ceremoniously celebrated by our Ancestors.  Rites of Passage were usually attended by the entire village or only certain members of the village, depending on the Rite.  Ancestral Rites Ceremonies publicly honored and celebrated an individual's passage to a new phase of their life; it was an intentional, conscious marking of the person's Life Line, witnessed by all.  In some remote places on Earth today, Rites of Passage are still practiced according to ancient Tribal customs and traditions.  Most  individuals living in the modern world, however, have long ago lost the Old Ways.  Rites of Passage, as embraced by our Ancestors, ceased to be practiced and passed down generation-to-generation for varying reasons; the most compelling of which were invasion, conversion and annihilation.  Some contemporary religions offer Rites of Passage within the parameters of their faith and beliefs.


Temple of MA  offers Rite of Passage Ceremonies for anyone seeking  spiritual, non-denominational Rites based in Ancestral traditions.

New Moon and Full Moon Ceremonies

From Ancient to contemporary times, the Moon has always held a particular romantic allure, as well as strong associations with Magic, Hypnotic Trance, Rituals, the Earth's water and Womyn's Cycles.

New Moon Ceremonies may include honoring new beginnings, manifesting rituals, baptisms - water initiation ceremonies, preparing for births, planting of seeds (literally or spiritually). 

Full Moon Ceremonies may include honoring completion of cycles, letting go of that which no longer serves a purpose, invoking Ancestral connections and wisdom, fire initiation ceremonies, harvesting of ripened crops (literally or spiritually).
