The Circle of Life

In a traditional society the customs and world view associated with the circle of life truly embrace a community member’s transition to the next life phase. Customs identify and validate major life events such as birth, baptism, adulthood, marriage and death.

The customs associated with various life events touch on a number of perceptions and practices. For example, at times of major life events certain practices are carried out that offer protection from evil spirits. In the settlements of Tzoumerka, in addition to that of Matsouki which is our main place of reference, the customary practices regarding birth, marriage and death remain fairly resilient and are symbolic acts that protect from evil.
