STEP BOLDLY into the World of Youth Initiation
Do you long to be of deep service to young people, future generations, and wholeness in our communities and Earth? To be a more powerful guide and role model to youth in living a soulful life?
This 11-day intensive offers a current and comprehensive framework and set of tools to soulfully mentor youth through rite of passage experiences, powerfully connect with your own personal gifts and ancestral inheritance, and begin building your niche in this culturetransforming work.
During this catalyzing, initiatory experience of your own, you will undertake a two-day solo vigil, train in theoretical and practical fundamentals for creating rite of passage experiences, explore the dynamics of power and privilege as they pertain to this work, and enjoy the companionship of a tight-knit group of people and beautiful land.
