Girls Mentorship & Rite of Passage Programs

Empowering the transition into young womanhood

We acknowledge the privilege & responsibility of being on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations. Thank you for your teachings of right relationship with this land.

What is Fire & Flower?

Around the world and throughout history, societies recognized the rite of passage from girl to woman as a sacred and critical time, and guided girls through the process with rites, mentorship, and wisdom.

Today, this has been lost. And there has never been a harder time to be a young person, with mass and social media producing a constant feed of harmful messages and images.

Fire & Flower is 
reviving ‘a village’ of women supporting girls as they come-of-age through in-depth, transformative programs. We empower self-identified girls ages 10-14 in a non-binary & LGBTQ2SIAP+ inclusive environment. 

Through mentorship, nature-connection, and community-buildingparticipants build confidence and pride in womanhood, discover their personal power, and develop resilience to engage their future.

“When girls are given our time and presence to discover who they are, they unfold into the safety of themselves. This wisdom needs to be brought back into our communities – it is time.”
