In year three we broaden our lens of the world even further to include our planet as a whole. Watching the migration patterns of the salmon, birds, and butterflies, along with the waters and winds themselves, will help us deepen our relationship to all other beings with whom we share this Earth. We will look at how our understanding of community shifts when we take in the teachings and stories of travelers and elders from across the globe, with special attention given to the visiting representatives of indigenous wisdom. Participants will leave this year with a more profound realization of the universal interconnection of life. They will be further empowered with the courage, strength, and support of their community to live mindfully, in integrity with the values each of them holds most dear.
Commitment: Far more than another extracurricular activity, Coming-of-Age Mentorship and Rites-of-Passage are a crucial missing link in our society. A serious commitment and prioritization on behalf of everyone involved is necessary for the highest integrity of this journey.
Cost is $1380 for year three. (Transportation and supply fees may apply.)
