Have you heard the call to connect with the sacred in your life?
Listen to that call with a Mythic Rite of Passage.
Answering the Call
There will be times in your life when you will be called to take a Sacred Journey. You may answer “Yes” right away. Or you may resist and pretend that you did not hear the call.
You may think you don’t know where to start the journey.
When you hear and acknowledge the call to embark on a Sacred Journey you know in your heart that you must prepare to leave your people and life behind, at least symbolically.
In order for you to become the doctor, mother, hairdresser, stockbroker, farmer that you are, you may have had to bear the separation of your inner and outer selves. And a person can not bear for long this split between the inner life – your deepest needs – and your worldly requirements.
Somewhere you know you have paid too high a price.
Sooner or later, you’ll find that your spirit calls to you to come back to yourself and take the journey home again to yourself.
Your biggest fear perhaps is leaving your people behind while you travel by yourself along unknown paths to the Sacred Mountains. Worries about the baby. Worries about the children in school. Worries about responsibilities at work. Worries about your mate. Deadlines. Money. Bills. Making partner. Surely, those days that you are alone in the wilderness of the journey will cost you this life you have spent so long building.
When a person is separated from any aspect of their self, they are wounded. The wound may be fresh and bright and bleeding. Or the wound may be old and dry and brittle. Traveling while wounded can get weary and fearful.
But there is a remedy at hand.
There is the power and the grace of journeying to the depths of yourself that will hold, support and bring you whole again. It is this elegant presence of that wholeness that calls your name again and again. This call may come as a subtle whisper, a loud and unmistakable blast, or a persistent and annoying nagging. However it comes, eventually you will – at long last – give consent for the journey to be taken.
Your consent to begin your Sacred Journey requires courage and steadfastness – for you are traveling in the dark without road markers or a map. However, no woman is ever called to journey without aid and assistance. You will be guided by your ancestors and by a midwife who has taken the journey before and who now stands and holds the space for you.
The Rites of Passage that are guided here are fashioned around timeless initiations since ancient times. These Rites of Passage are not co-opted from any one specific cultural tradition but rather represent the contemporized essence of these ancient practices. Each journey is crafted to honor the traditional rites and bring them into the modern life. You will be held and honored by the heart and hands of a knowing and skilled journey midwife who can assist you in giving birth to yourself again.
If you hear the call to leave your people and wish to embark on your Sacred Journey back to yourself know that without your vision your people can not live whole and free. It is your task to bring your vision back to your people so that they may live and prosper. To receive this vision you must answer the call you hear. During your Rite of Passage , you will be gifted with your power and your grace which will enable you to carry your vision into the world.
One woman, journeying to the Sacred Mountains, says that for 10 years she has avoided giving her consent to her call to her Vision Quest. Even when prompted she skirted around the consent, walking in a maze of knowing she is being called and wishing that she did not hear the call. With tears in her eyes, she at last says, “Yes”. And she gives her consent for the process to take her into the wilderness.
If your time has come to give your consent to your Sacred Journey, then this might be the place to begin it. I welcome you and invite you to embrace the journey.
All Women As Healer Rites of Passage are contemporized to be manageable within your normal routine.

The hero’s journey always begins with the call. One way or another, a guide must come to say, ‘Look, you’re in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that’s not been touched. So you’re at home here? Well, there’s not enough of you there.’ And so it starts.― Joseph Campbell
