This week we explore initiation rites. According to wikipedia:

Initiation is a rite of passage ceremony marking entrance or acceptance into a group or society. It could also be a formal admission to adulthood in a community or one of its formal components. In an extended sense it can also signify a transformation in which the initiate is ‘reborn’ into a new role.

Moreover, initiation rites have been practiced for many cultures and for a long time. For instance, the ancient Egyptian, the Hebraic/Jewish, the Babylonian, the Mayan, and the Norse cultures all practiced initiation rites.
