Thanks for this Maria. Transitions came up as a strong theme for me during LOTE4. In our modern “civilisation” when people go through a transition we often diagnose it as an illness and try to “cure” it. Traditional cultures understand them more as a time of development, after which the person will have a gift to contribute to the community, and so they make sure the person feels safe and is protected.
As for communities and organisations, I don’t feel we pay enough attention to transitions. They can be incredible times of growth and development provided no-one tries to control them!
