Throughout Life

A ‘Rite of Passage’ is a ceremony or ritual which marks the transition from one stage of life to another, as from adolescence to adulthood. The most recognised rites of passage are often seen as marriage, child birth and death but there are many more. The ceremonies or rituals which accompany these life-changing events mark and give meaning to our passage through life, our identity and our position in the community.

There are many, many life changing events that we often celebrate in one way or another, some consciously and some unconsciously; and sadly, some we do not mark at all. At White Light, we aim to help people identify and celebrate the significant events in their lives whether the ceremony or ritual is for a person alone, or with family, friends and communities. Our goal is to support you in honouring and marking where you have been and celebrating the next stage of your life. We can help make your rites of passage events, into truly beautiful occasions which will live in your memory and those you love, for the rest of your life.

Modern day rites of passage can include any number of significant events, and we can help you celebrate them including:
