ADULT Programs

“I came away having felt things I did not think I could feel and having seen things that I did not think I could see. The course of my life has been permanently altered, in the most precious and meaningful ways. I am better equipped to serve my community from my heart and I am better able to see the humanity in myself and others.”
- Ben, Adult Participant

 
 

Our adult programs, for ages 18 and older, grew out of the strong need we saw to guide adults through their own rites of passage --- for transition does not, of course, end at age 18 (in many ways, it just begins!). Our programs for adults include solo time, time in nature, powerful ritual and ceremony and individual and community mentorship and reflection. Our program design includes preparatory activities, a pre-program meeting, and post-program opportunities to reconnect and renew.

The time that we are living in now requires a deep sense of self, community, place and the sacred --- the very basis on which all of our programs are designed. Experiences with Journeys foster the presence necessary for authentic connections, which are essential in our communities, families, friendships and relationships with all beings.

Leadership Training Programs

Do you long to be of deep service to young people, future generations, and wholeness in our communities and Earth? To be a powerful guide and role model to youth in living a soulful life? Our Leadership Training program can help prepare you to step more fully into the roles of guide and mentor. Our two-week Leadership Intensive provides a deep dive into rites of passage centered around your own solo vision fast. Our Intensive, paired with an Apprenticeship on one of our youth programs, can prepare you for future work as a Journeys guide. If your schedule doesn’t mesh with our two-week training, we offer weekend Leadership Workshop intensives that can be coupled with a separate vision fast, either via our Adult Wilderness Quest or an intensive solo program experience elsewhere, then paired with an Apprenticeship on one of our youth programs. Contact us if you’d welcome support in exploring what path of training will best serve your path.

Leadership Workshops

Our Leadership Development workshop series emerged from a community call for weekend-length trainings to delve into rites of passage methodology and practice. These workshops can be taken individually or as a series. Taken together, and combined with your own Wilderness Quest and Apprenticeship on our youth programs, they provide fantastic preparation for joining our team as a future guide.
