Who We Are

Inara means light or by way of light. With over 15 years of experience in Education and Human Development, Inara’s Passage works to be that source of light during some of the greatest transitional moments in your life, such as pregnancy, birth, marriage, love, and beyond. It is our belief that every individual, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, orientation, identity or religion, deserves to have an informed, compassionate, and thoughtful individual to assist them through some of the most intimate and moving experiences in their lives. These moments can not only be life changing, but positive and enlightening. Inara's Passage works diligently to provide that space and opportunity to all individuals and families through our range of services.

We are each gifted in a unique and important way.
It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. 
~ Mary Dunbar, British artist, illustrator and teacher (1906-1960)
