First Moon: Passage to Womanhood Reviews
This book and kit by Ann and Helynna offer a wonderfully comprehensive, inspired and creative way to help you gift a daughter or a loved young woman in your life with a rite of passage ceremony to mark her coming into womanhood. (Or, if you never had a ceremony yourself, this would be a wonderful rite to share with peers!) The passage of menarche, a time so often neglected in our Western society, can be honored by using the guidelines, suggestions and tools of this kit. Whether you already have something in mind for a ceremony but need a little assistance getting started, or don't know anything at all about ritual, this kit will help you create a lovely and memorable experience for those involved. Such a special time together will enrich the lives of those participating, and will no doubt have larger cultural ramifications as the initiated woman takes her place in today's world witnessed and accepted by her sisters (blood and otherwise). I highly recommend this kit for anyone who has ever thought that a woman's first moon time needs to be something other than a shameful experience. Blessings to the creatrixes for putting such a beneficial resource out into the world!
With the coming of a new era, it is a time for new rituals in our culture. The power we have as women to create life will no longer be overlooked or diminished in value. The time has come to reclaim our magnificence and the first step in doing this is to honor our young girls as life-giving forces at the time of their first menstruation. This kit gives the new menstruant and mother a framework from which together they can create a sacred ceremony celebrating the glory of being a woman. i wish I had had something like this when I first got my period. My wish is that every woman realizes her own power from the first day her body becomes in synch with the moon. I recommend this book/kit to all women in every culture all over the world.
The First Moon kit is such a simple, yet revolutionary idea. To celebrate a girl's first menstruation with a celebration....how much simpler can it get to put a positive spin on something that is usually such a negative, forgotten, overlooked, neglected, yet hugely important part of each girl's life? This kit contains everything you need to start a life-long celebration of menstruation. This kit isn't just for girls. It is for anyone who wants to re-examine their relationship to their period, or get a group of friends together to discuss their own menarche experiences. it's a wonderful gift!
Mothers always celebrate our daughters' 'first' birthdays, the 'first' day of school, and many other 'firsts'. Yet when our daughters begin 'first' menstruation, we are uncomfortable and silent. All girls deserve the honor and respect of a celebration as they change from girl to young woman. The First Moon kit gives mothers a complete celebration and begins a new way of thinking for girls (and moms) to love their bodies and their cycles.
