Tenders of the Inner Tide – Year 2

Ages 9-11- Apply now for new year one group forming Fall 2018

In this time of rising social challenges, when many children in the modern world begin to turn away from nature in search of acceptance into popular culture, we offer a valuable opportunity for deepening connection, friendship, adventure, and service.

Tenders of the Inner Tide is for the adventurous of heart, girls who are ready to take their first steps into adulthood.  Together we learn to honor the feminine and masculine energies within and around us, as we deepen our sense of belonging with all of whom we share this land.  The fundamental format of the journey will remain consistent for all three years, with the curriculum shifting each year from awareness of self, to awareness of community, to awareness of the planet as a whole.

Coming-of-Age Mentorship

As mentors, we bring our presence, authenticity, and life’s experience to guide and support the cultivation of each child’s unique strengths in service to our local and global communities.  Our approach is inspired by teachings and life honoring practices held sacred amongst our ancestors and indigenous cultures around the world.  Through deep listening and trust in our ongoing relationships with the children, we craft activities and challenges that inspire each participant to access their inner wisdom and confidence.

Description

Year Two Overview – Community

We are blessed to live in a part of the world that has an abundance of individuals and communities dedicated to both innovative and ancient practices which steer our society toward a more harmonious relationship with the natural world.  In year two we expand our awareness to include the culture of our family, friends, and neighbors, including those who grow our food and are teaching us how to cultivate a resilient and compassionate local economy.  We will find inspiration in the stories and practices of the stewards of local biodynamic farms, permaculture education centers, cottage industries, homesteads, and intentional communities.  During our visits, we will engage our bodies, dirty our hands and sharpen our minds  as we help with natural building, food production, and tending the surrounding plant and animal communities. We will also engage in practices that support the holistic health of these communities, including compassionate communication practices, song circles, meal preparation, and interactive theater, sharing our own creative genius to inspire greater awareness and understanding throughout our community.

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.
