Getting Human: The Hard Alchemy of Initiation by Stephen Jenkinson
What would a culture look like if it didn’t have authentic initiation for its young people? Well, look around, friends. This is what it looks like. Initiation coalesces a person’s kinship with humanity, with creation, with the other world. Well understood, well done and well lived, initiation happens half a dozen times in someone’s life, ever deepening their humanity on the way towards elder-hood. This weekend teaches something of the demanding blessing and human-making power of initiation.
Ages 15-30 (+/-).
Admission: $100 early-bird , $125 after June 25 (includes Saturday night feast)
