Synopsis
 

Sue Gill and Gilly Adams hold annual Rites of Passage workshops exploring aspects of ritual through writing, making and personal ceremony. Their work involves large scale public commemorative events and the creation of new ceremony to mark personal transitions in one's life.

In June, 2014, they will hold their Rites of Passage Summer School at Swarthmoor Hall, Ulverston.

    'In our changing social and cultural environment, where confidence in traditional religion has often diminished, the challenge is to create new and appropriate rites of passage that can be witnessed by friends and family. The workshops examine the Hows and Whys of ceremony and celebration in a practical and experiential way. Beginning with an exploration of the way that rites of passage have already featured in our own lives, we looked at what else might require special attention: - beginnings and endings; gains and losses; transitions. We examine how both positive and negative life events can be distilled into myth and poetry and created meaningful rituals to contain them. We look at how music, visual art and carefully chosen words can be used to enhance ceremony'.

East Woodlands, Frome, Somerset, October 2013
