An Invitation to Adventure for Young Adults
June 8-10, Floyd, Virginia
“One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began…” ~ Mary Oliver
Historically, all cultures have created (and demanded) rites of passage, some form of severance in which the child or adolescent bids goodbye to dependency in order to become an adult. This Call to Adventure is for young men and women – age 20-35 — ready to discover their own path and truths, encounter what’s authentic and alive within them, and realize a sense of themselves outside of their parents’ and culture’s view of the world.
The weekend is for those wanting to claim their strength, leave behind old, adolescent points of view, and see their lives as a quest for authenticity and vision.
REGISTRATION The cost of the weekend is $300, and a deposit of $125 is required to reserve your space. If special circumstances require an alternative payment plan, these may be negotiated on an individual basis.
Upon registration, you will be sent further information and directions to where we’ll meet.

What do you really long for and need? Self-love or self-acceptance? A sense of your own worth, the feeling you belong and have something to give? Or just a convenient parking space?
This weekend explores what it means to live heroically. During it, we’ll look at the hidden ways we’re still imprisoned by our parents’ or the culture’s view of who we should be, and see how these stories and wounds express themselves in our relationships and lives.
With the help of fierce truth-telling, psychodrama, and evocative ritual processes, we’ll cut the cords that hold us to an adolescent’s view of the world, breaking free of any victimhood or the superficial and soul-deadening roles our culture lays out for us.
