Viktor Frankl says “when we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”
Conscious Transitions embraces the important developmental stages in life where significant change of status or role happens. These processes honour and support these transitions in a conscious way.
A rite of passage is a ceremony that marks the transition from one phase of lift to another. How we choose to deal with the transitional stages in our lives, helps us walk a journey of integration and wholeness. TRANSITIONS TO ELDERSHIP facilitates these transitional shifts using Erik Erikson's Psychosocial Developmental Stages, the wisdom of the Elements and Archetypes, together with various Person-Centred techniques to facilitate these transitions.
Using the magic of mindfulness, somatic movement, rhythm, and heart-connection, we weave a Rite of Passage that meets the individual or group where they are, creating a smooth transition into the Wholeness of who each individual is.
"Rites of Passage play a central Role in African Socialisation, demarking the different stages in an individual's development as well as that person's relationship and role to the broader community. "Alik Shahadah
Participant Testimonials : “I recently attended the Transitions to Eldership workshop with Nidhi. The workshop engages with that piece we all term "getting older" and finding myself in the gap this workshop showed me all the ways to connect with my child, my maiden, my mother and my wise woman. It was creative, engaging and really got me thinking about this next important phase of my life. Nidhi's gentle, fun and compassionate self, shines through in her work and her ability to work with what could be a very difficult piece for many in a creative way, is what made this workshop so very thought provoking.At a time when the search for meaning and purpose is high in my life I found this somatic experience, deeply enriching and would highly recommend this workshop to anyone wishing to gain more insight into the transitioning age of wisdom, clarity and purpose. Looking forward to the next 50 years with compassion and wisdom. Thank you.” MC 24/10/2017
“Thank you for sharing a rich knowledge of awareness as I enter the 3rd Act. I found your process to be enlightening, safe and an opportunity to go within so that I now have a positive feel of how to integrate what has happened , what is and where to. Your talents are much appreciated.” MC 29/01/2018 “Dear Nidhi, Your workshop of “ Transitions” was well-researched and interestingly presented and had my full attention during the whole course of the afternoon. I found myself going back in time to people and places that I had forgotten about and realized how far I have travelled. The use of music, rhythm and dancing were excellent tools.Now 80 years old, I am happy to know that nothing was in vain and that I can continue as an Elder to pass on my wisdom and knowledge to whoever crosses my path.” MH 29/01/2018
