A teenage girl longs for affirmation that she is on the right path towards womanhood; she often dons the clothes, make-up and mannerisms of a woman, mistakenly believing that this turns her into one.  Appearance is such a small part of what it means to be a woman, but who teaches our daughters this?  Well, that’s we adults can help.  We can spend time with our girls, in the company of other women, showing them the way.  We find simple rituals to acknowledge as they cross certain thresholds, letting them know that we see they are on their way towards becoming women.

Kim McCabe, Founder of
Rites for Girls will be discussing what girls have taught her about what they need from us adults.

* Practical tools for mentoring preteen and teen girls.
* How to prepare girls for a puberty rite ceremony and celebration.

This two hour Educational Event is for anyone who is interested in steering our children safely into adulthood - mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and anyone who works with pre-teen and teenage girls in a personal or professional way. We have the good luck to play a part in setting them on their path into their future.

The future needs us all!

Practical teachings and tools will be shared.

Questions and dialogue included.

Bring your questions and your open hearts.

Meet Our Global Leaders

Liberating the creative life force is, in fact, revolutionary. If a young person can dream something and know that they have the capacity to create something from nothing, they have both the awareness and internal muscle to do what their soul calls them to do.

Golden Girls Global Founder

I relate to my training as one would relate to a compass and a map. One requires a lifelong practice of orienting to what is true through my own embodiment. The other guides me in ever-changing terrain by providing a lineage of wisdom, tools, practices, and principles to reference when I need council.

Golden Girls Global Leader

The dance is a way for me to explore my inner landscape: processing emotions, reconnecting to my needs, learning my boundaries, developing self awareness, and deepening my connection to the environment. The dance constantly helps me to create inner space, and it provides a safe and sacred container for myself and others which allows us to move through challenging situations and processes.

Rites of Passage Ancestor

I am on a mission to create the best form of myself, actualized into being the wildest dreams of my ancestors. I have become, and I will never stop becoming. I am thankful for this community of global sisterhood and the work that bridges our very different practices and communities. May we all continue to rise up.

I identify as gender fluid. Sometimes I feel very feminine, sometimes very masculine, and sometimes I feel neutral.

I find working ongoing with the girls has allowed the opportunity to stretch their capacity to speak authentically and listen from the heart. Over the years, I have seen a softening and a welcoming in that space.

Natural Highs: Substance Abuse Prevention/Intervention

~ A Conversation with Avani Dilger on Connected, Creative and Sober Living

During our time together, Avani Dilger will talk about how she cultivated generations of positive young people who are committed to following their passions, exploring states of consciousness in healthy ways, and experiencing deep human connection in community. Her internationally respected program, Natural Highs Community works to empower teens and adults to address substance abuse and mental health issues in inspiring ways that really work. Through Avani’s deep understanding of how the brain works and what young people truly crave, she has been able to positively support people as they consider creative, connected, and sober ways to live their lives. Avani explains, “There is no substitute for the real thing!” Avani’s teaching style is respectful and empathic, honoring the complexity of why people use substances, whether it is alcohol, marijuana, nicotine or other substances, and how their deepest needs can be understood and met in a variety of ways.
