As human beings we are meant to go through transitions throughout our phases of life in order to become fully human, to become a true elder who has wisdom to pass down the generations. With each transition in our life, we go through a descent where we let go of an old identity so that the energies and the motivation for the new can emerge. One of the reasons we go on retreat and keep a daily practice is because we’re training in descent. We go into liminal space, between worlds, where we separate from what we know as we are birthed into a new phase of life.
