ABOUT RITES OF PASSAGE
Rites of passage mark initiations from one stage of life and state of consciousness to another. They lead us into the wilderness within and outside of ourselves, moving through the life journey from youth to old age. In the modern era, rites of passage have been lost, leaving people adrift without the support of their community to move forward on their path. These programs help meet the current crisis of stress, anxiety and depression by leading people to find meaning and purpose within their nature and the natural world. With base camp set up at the Beloved nature and creativity sanctuary to provide safe passage. Ultimately leading to a culminating rite of passage designed by the candidate to represent and hold their unique transformation, the journey ends in the deep wilderness with destination in the Olympics, Mt. Rainier, the Hoh Rainforest and La Push beach.
"Every positive change--every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness--involves a rite of passage." Dan Millman
THE TRAILHEAD TO A TRANSFORMATIVE JOURNEY.
Are you ready to take your next step?
This is a life journey in which you are the hero or heroine. It is your quest, your rite of passage in which you overcome your own challenges, whether it is going through a divorce, struggling with addiction, or depression. While we undergo initiatory challenges throughout our lives, there are critical transitions that have always had ceremonies to help people go through the separation, initiation and integration that is required. These transitional times are:
Pre-teens (10-12); Teens (13-17); Young Adults (18-25+); Mid-life (40-60); Elderhood (65+); and Full circle (end of life).
Besides these passages, other transitions like birth, awakening and completion are honored with offerings.
Each assembles supporting staff to guide your transition. To learn more, visit below.
