Rites of Passage, founded in 1977, offers Vision QuestsWorkshops and Trainings that bring people into a deep encounter with the natural world, exploring the human-nature connection to deepen and transform a sense of purpose, value and commitment to the life we have been blessed with. This work begins with hearing the call to quest, an impulse as ancient as humanity: the path of the hero/ine. It will appeal to men, women, leaders, veterans and young people in life transition or change, and to those wanting to deepen their spiritual path and sense of purpose.

WORKSHOPS - FOR HEALING, REFLECTING, & RENEWAL - One - three day workshops, in the same spirit as the nine-day Vision Quest, provide an opportunity to enter the natural world for healing, reflection and renewal.
TRAININGS - FOR THOSE CALLED TO OFFER THE WORK - Training program focuses on learning to guide rites of passage in nature, utilizing practices and tools derived from native and non-native teachers and teachings, spiritual pathways, ecopsychology, and wilderness experience.
