* Boys II Young Men *
Mission & Vision
Creating a transformative space for adolescent boys to come together and learn from inspiring, diverse, and integral male role models. Teaching the upcoming generation of men emotional awareness and guiding them gracefully into young manhood by sharing experiential wisdom from our teachers, trials, and tribulations. Providing a solid foundation of conscious communication tools to help form healthy relationships (with self, women & the world), creating a greater awareness of how to live in the highest of harmony, health, and happiness. Connecting into the elemental forces of creation (earth, air, water, & fire) and empowering the young men with ceremonial/ritualistic experiences and basic survival skills. Introducing techniques for exploration and expansion of body, mind, and breath through meditation, yoga, breathwork, partner exercises, team building activities, and dance.
Bringing small, intimate groups of pre-teen & teenage boys (12-15 yrs.) into a nature-based, "wholistically holistic" rite-of-passage retreat with a solid group of men guiding them and supporting them into young adulthood.
What is a Rite of Passage?
* Rite of Passage - a ceremonial event, existing in all historically known societies,
that marks the passage from one social or religious status to another (source: Britannica)
* Typically includes 3 different stages - separation, challenge, re-integration
- Stay tuned for the first "retreat"
*Possibly in Southern California in December!
