1.) Rites of passage can involve a variety of experiences that allow a person to gain new knowledge, a new perspective, or new insights. Rites of passage often help people to marture or grow. Through these experiences we sometimes realize something we had never seen before, either about life, ourselves, or others. Rites of passage can also simply be experiences that we go through for the first time.
