Leaving Religion / Joining Humanism
Many find leaving religion to be a painful process while others find it more like coming home. If you would like a service to officially renounce your old beliefs and join the humanist family, then a Humanist Confirmation is for you. Humans are ceremonial beings; the power of an official ceremony can be tremendously affecting for the psyche.
Teen Coming-of-Age Ceremony
For teens who are ready to transition to pre-adulthood, a Humanist Confirmation is a commitment to leading a mindful life based on compassion and humanist values. It is customary for such a service to follow a period of community service, but it isn't obligatory. It's up to you to design the ceremony that speaks to your teen's values.
