They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts
— Kahlil Gibran

A ceremony to mark the milestone of transition from one stage to the next can be undertaken in school groups, community, friendship or familial groups. I've been working with grade 6 students for more than 12 years and can design/deliver a program to suit the needs and setting of your group.

These ceremonies are ideal for graduations and other transitions - from one stage to the next.


"I feel privileged to have known a wonderful person whose free spirit and emotional responses made me feel comfortable about sharing my precious time with the grade 6s. From the first moment that we worked together it felt like ‘home’. Ringing your bell and talking about A.A. Milne. The messages that you instilled in the children, have in the tough times in my life helped me through. Talking about letting things go and moving on with your life with hope for the future. “Let us be grateful for the people who make us happy, for they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom”, and you Karen have built a Monet’s Garden at Kingsville."
