Between birth and death, we will experience many transition rituals: coming-of-age ceremony, graduation ceremony, wedding ceremony, etc. The ritual symbolizes the end of the old. The new is about to begin. It is the process of changing the two stable states before and after the ceremony. It is a buffer zone that allows the mind to look back, vent and regenerate. If you don’t have any action plan for the new life stage, a formal ritual to start a new life can help you relieve anxiety, create a sense of security, and make it easier for you to welcome a new beginning.
