The Power of Initiation:
 Raising Adults in the Age of #metoo

Friday, February 9       8:00 pm - 9:30 pm       Room: Newport B

In this #metoo moment and uncertain times, many of us are searching for ways to make the future brighter. Join Seraph as she explores how positive rites of passage support our long-term cultural and spiritual health by calling our future leaders into a commitment to mature adulthood. As we explore alternative forms of spirituality or become more secular in our beliefs, we lose access to traditional and old-fashioned rites and ritual. How do we redesign these important moments of transition into a meaningful call to community engagement and personal aspiration? How do we give our children their best chance to be the inspirational changemakers of tomorrow?


Seraph White combines her background in Deep Ecology, experience in education, and her passion for meaningful transitions in her work with Passageways Institute.  Her children are both in the process of preparing for their bínei mitzvahs.  Seraph has a BA in Environmental Studies from UCSC and an MA in Environmental Leadership from Naropa University.
