Fire & Flower is a coming-of-age rite of passage program for girls ages 12-14 starting this May in Vancouver. The 4-month program will provide a meaningful and wholistic transition into young womanhood through positive relationships, ceremony, and connection to nature. The girls will build confidence and pride in being young women, gain valuable friendships, experience a transformational coming-of-age ceremony, and have continued mentoring & support during and after the program.
Rites of passage are community events. They are created by the community, for the community. We have an amazing and diverse team of women ready to provide long-term, one-on-one mentorship for the girls. Together we will create a strong and safe container to explore topics such as body image, relationships, empowerment, sexuality, personal fears, etc. Personal reflections will be anchored and embodied through art, movement, challenge, time in nature, and belonging to the group.
