Teaching Rites of Passage for 35 Years

News & Announcements

Deep gratitude for all your love and support!
In late May we reached out to our comunity and asked for $18,600 to support us in our commitment to reintroduce meaningful Rites of Passage and Earth-based wisdom to cultures around the world. 
This was our biggest fund drive ever and we are so excited to have made it over 2/3 of the way to our goal!  And, we trust that other donations will come in throughout the year and we will reach our target….  As always, it is so beautiful to see people give in such creative ways and we love receiving the sweet notes, pics and the words of love and encouragement that people send in with their donation checks.  We are so blessed with a community that truly carries the ceremony forward.  ï»¿
One man from the most recent PLD program (who had previously fasted with the school) put out a ‘challenge grant’ of $2,500, exclusively for the participants of the program. His challenge came complete with a deadline of 3 weeks, and he dilegently followed through, reminding everyone how many days they had left to donate and what had been raised. In the end, this matching grant created donations of $2,120 from participants, which with the matching, doubled to a total $4,240!  Amazing!

CA- Vision Fast for Women

 “There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”.  

Anais Nin


One of a woman’s deepest longing is to be fully seen in her most natural, wild and authentic self. Innately, she is stirred by an inner wisdom to reconnect to the sacredness embodied in nature, moved by a stirring to leave the safety of her personal and familiar borders as she travels her unique path. Perhaps the intensity of her yearning guides her to a hidden place where she discovers ways to break the chains of self-judgment that have held her back for so long, bringing her full circle to her true Self through the age old practice of rites of passage.

Grief, Loss and Illness: Journeys into Healing

Aug 11th, 2014 - Aug 17th, 2014

 The land around us (and within us) teaches with each passing season, and with each flood, drought, fire and storm, that out of change, crisis and a dying to what was, there appears a new story of form and adaptation. And that how we respond and integrate change into the fabric of our ongoing story colors the character of what comes next.
