At the heart of the issue is a loss of connection to one another, while looking to social
media for this replacement which has only proven to show more isolation and depression
among our youth.
Later this year Sacred Son's online program will be introduced through The Sacred Living Movement. I wish to help other mother's who are also seeking to raise a more conscious man who can reconnect to their sense of nobility, and purpose. We must look back to our ancestor's wisdom to create markers for these milestones so that they can awaken to their deeper sense of purpose and community.This is the rearing of a "Modern Day Knight. "
Being a mother of four sons has taught me that each one of them has their individual journey to live out, and my time teaching them to be a conscious human being is avery small window of time. To mark my second son's 18th birthday, I created a Knighting Ceremony with only a few of his friends and a couple of chosen mentors. This ceremony took place over a weekend and had a well thought out way to direct the boys attention on finding their strength, heart, and conviction through a challenge and initiation, a cleansing and saying farewell to childish ways. Upon his completion of this initiation he returned to those of us awaiting his arrival back into our community to share what gifts and insights came to him, what it meant for him to be a man, and what values and virtues he wanted to be known for out in the world.
I believe using the knight as a metaphor, we can introduce the idea to our sons at any age between 12-13, which I refer to as the "Page" stage. We introduce ideas such as" What is a Noble Man?" Through the ages of 14- 17, the phase of the "Squire," is here where all the hard work lies, where we really want to build the qualities we want to see bloom in them. These qualities include curiosity, empathy, contribution, caring, self discipline, and discernment. Knowing that boys are instinctually programmed to seek challenges we must try to create a modern day rites of passage for these phases that include challenges or they will seek these things out themselves with reckless behavior.
