Birthrites: Rituals and Celebrations for the Child-bearing Years

Birthrites: Rituals and Celebrations for the Child-bearing Years | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

A subtle and soulful book to help parents prepare for and celebrate the profound transition of Birth.

"Birth is the archetypal rite of passage for a woman, containing the essential elements of any ritual: separation from normal life, a profound transition during which the participants occupy a timeless time, followed by re-entry into society in a changed state. It can also be seen as a holy sacrament; the entry of a soul from another plane into this earthly dimension." Jackie Singer, Birthrites

“Based on etymology, then, the phrase “sacred sphere” suggests a globe-like form, whole and pure, consecrated with divine intent. Earth is often referred to as the sacred sphere in the context that it is our home, the Mother Goddess, Gaia. However, equating the sacred sphere with Earth places an unfortunate geographical limit on what I believe to be the true nature of the symbolism."

Visioning Sustainability - Scale Independent Thought

Visioning Sustainability - Scale Independent Thought | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

Today’s world of increasing complexity and rapid globalization leaves us thirsting for new metaphors, analogies and emblems – those that can encapsulate the complex challenges we face into an image of clarity we can wrap our minds around. As the stakes of our collective behavior rise, this new image must both shock our sensibilities and inspire us into action. Such a fresh, contemporary archetype must quickly scale visibly into the heart of mass consciousness to encourage humans to become the stewards we were meant to be. To find these new emblems, we can do what the ancients did before us – look to the dynamic processes, natural morphologies and behaviors of our planet to see how she creates dynamic equilibrium in response to upheaval and change.
