For over 45 years, Rites of Passage has offered rite of passage programs that bring people into a deep encounter with the natural world to awaken, heal, and transform their lives. Rites of Passage programs guide participants into the enactment of a powerful and meaningful rite of passage. Our program offerings include Wilderness Quests, Workshops, Youth Programs and GuideTrainings. These programs, with their challenges of solitude, fasting, and exposure to nature, help us to face our fears, affirm our inner strengths and capacities, and listen to our inner truths. We provide a welcoming and affirming space for people of any ethnic group, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation.
Ceremonial rites of passage have always been important to the health of human societies. The questions they respond to remain relevant today: How to move through life’s changes with a sense of intention and purpose? How to step into a path that calls us deeply into our life? How to move into authentic adulthood?
