Using rites-of-passage to create change

I have participated in and facilitated seminars and classes to create change for the past twenty years. I found that lasting change occurred more often when a “rite-of-passage” was utilized.

Rites-of-passage go back to the beginning of time in most cultures. They are best known as “coming of age” initiations that mark the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. They signify the death of the old and birth of the new. Other examples include: Native American vision quests, Bar Mitzvahs, graduation ceremonies, initiations, weddings, baby showers, funerals, and retirement celebrations.

So why not experience a rite-of-passage when you want to create change in your life? It gives you and the world a signal that you changed at this point in time. You are... no longer someone that allows people to take advantage of you, you are now someone that demands respect. Or... you are no longer a single guy, you are now part of a family. After the rite, whenever you observe yourself in your old way, say “that is not who I am anymore.” If you have a group of people that support your change and care enough to say to you “that is not what you are about anymore,” the effect is multiplied exponentially.

So... if you or someone you know is serious about initiating change or creating a new way of being, come and experience a rite-of-passage with us. Allow yourself a metamorphosis. You owe it to yourself.

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
