Integrate ceremony and nature-based practices into everyday life and work.

Your generosity helps make our work accessible to all who are called to our programs. It also supports the ongoing legacy and sustainability of the School of Lost Borders. 2021 has been a potent year, and the pandemic underscored the importance of connecting with the land and each other during this time.  Although we offered as many programs as we could, we lost income due to Covid-19 which impacted our available scholarship funds.  Our dream is that all who wish to participate are able.

" We began way back when, in the days when revolution was in the air, when rock and roll was filled with protest and the young were sticking flowers in the gun barrels of National Guardsmen. Even then, the answer to the dilemma of culture was clear: True revolution would never come about until the children remembered the way to get to adulthood - and the adults to true elderhood - and the elders to honorable death..."
