Warriors of the Noble Heart – Year 3


Ages 11-12; Apply now to join year three Warriors group starting late September 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.

Warriors of the Noble Heart is a three year journey for the adventurous of heart, boys 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.

Year Three Overview – Earth

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.

  • Monthly nature excursions (One Saturday/month, Sept. – May)
  • Monthly wisdom council gatherings (One Thursday evening/month, Sept. – May)
  • Mid-year parent wisdom council
  • End of year, 5-day Rites-of-Passage Camp (June)

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.
