Held at Red Lightning's Rites of Passage Dome.

Something deep and profound happens in consciously choosing to step into transformation. Choosing a ceremonial Rite of Passage is a gateway into understanding ourselves, our life journey, and our place within our communal ecosystem. Without Rites of Passages in our culture we lose the bond of community connection forged through witnessing and supporting one another on our journeys. Learn about the four stages of initiation and transformation, what stage you currently are at in your cycle, and the tools that can assist you at that stage. You will then be led in a practice to gain clarity on your destiny path and the intended gift you are to bring to serve the greater community. This workshop combines practices from many lineages of Rites of Passages, including Tibetan Buddhism, the Q’ero Shamans of the Andes, and modern Wilderness Therapy.
