A rite of passage is a ritual event that marks a person’s transition from one status to another. Rites of passage explores and describes various notable milestones in an individual’s life, for any marked transitional stage, when one’s social status is altered.

The concept of rites of passage as a general theory of socialization was first formally articulated by Arnold van Gennep in his book The Rites of Passage to denote rituals marking the transitional phase between childhood and full inclusion into a tribe or social group. Gennep’s work exercised a deep impact on anthropological thought. Milestones include transitions from puberty

year 7 to high school, coming of age, marriage and death. Initiation ceremonies such as baptism, akika, upanayana, confirmation and Bar or Bat Mitzvah are considered important rites of passage for people of their respective religions. Rites of passage show anthropologists what social hierarchies, values and beliefs are important in specific cultures.

Rites of passage have three phases: separation, liminality, and incorporation, as van Gennep described. I propose to call the rites of separation from a previous world, preliminal rites, those executed during the transitional stage liminal or threshold rites, and the ceremonies of incorporation into the new world postliminal rites.

Types and examples of rite of passage

In the first phase, people withdraw from their current status and prepare to move from one place or status to another. The first phase of separation comprises symbolic behavior signifying the detachment of the individual or group from an earlier fixed point in the social structure. There is often a detachment or cutting away from the former self in this phase, which is signified in symbolic actions and rituals.

actions and rituals. For example, the cutting of the hair for a person who has just joined the army. He or she is cutting away the former self the civilian. The transition liminal phase is the period between states, during which one has left one place or state but has not yet entered or joined the next. “The attributes of liminality or of liminal personae (“threshold people”) are necessarily ambiguous.”

Re-incorporation is characterized by elaborate rituals and ceremonies, like debutant balls and college graduation, and by outward symbols of new ties: thus “in rites of incorporation there is widespread use of the ‘sacred bond’, the ‘sacred cord’, the knot, and of analogous forms such as the belt, the ring, the bracelet and the crown.” Psychological effects Laboratory

experiments have shown that severe initiations produce cognitive dissonance. It is theorized that such dissonance heightens group attraction among initiates after the experience, arising from internal justification of the effort used.Rewards during initiations have important consequences in that initiates who feel more rewarded express stronger group identity.

Cultural Initiation rites are seen as fundamental to human growth and development as well as socialization in many African communities. These rites function by ritually marking the transition of someone to full group membership.

It also links individuals to the community and the community to the broader and more potent spiritual world. Initiation rites are a natural and necessary part of a community, just as arms and legs are natural and necessary extension of the human body.

These rites are linked to individual and community development. Dr. Manu Ampim identifies five stages; rite to birth, rite to adulthood, rite to marriage, rite to eldership and rite to ancestorship. In Zulu culture entering womanhood is celebrated by the Umhlanga (ceremony).

Adventure Education programs, such as Outward Bound, have often been described as potential rites of passage. Pamela Cushing researched the rites of passage impact upon adolescent youth at the Canadian Outward Bound School and found the rite of passage impact was lessened by the missing reincorporation phase. Bell (2003) presented more evidence of this lacking third stage and described the “Contemporary Adventure Model

Bell (2003) presented more evidence of this lacking third stage and described the “Contemporary Adventure Model of a Rites of Passage” as a modern and weaker version of the rites of passage typically used by outdoor adventure programs. For non-religious people, Rites of Passage are important as well. They mark important changes in their lives and they help to guide them.
