This coming school-year, our Rite of Passage programs will consist of 11 after-school gatherings, 3 weekend camping trips, and 1 overnight camp trip, 2 mama bear circles for mothers/caregivers, and one 1-on-1 auntie meeting. Our Rite of Passage journey is a two-year experience that supports you and your daughter in the changing waters of her physical and emotional being as she grows from a child into a teenager. Through entering our earth, air, fire and water portals each year, she will be supported to walk into her teenage years with safety, inner-confidence, self-awareness, and the ability to be in service. Year 1: The Foundational Root Year is focused on bonding as a group, learning the elemental map, and developing foundational nature connection, crafting, and emotional intelligence tools. Year 2: The Completion Fruits Year is focused on building her personal skills, and expands upon what she learned in the Root Year, culminating in a final overnight fire challenge and honoring ceremony.
