Appalachian Rites of Passage - A Family Vision Quest

August 8-12, 2018, Spirit Canoe Lodge, NW North Carolina, Ashe County

Rites of passage ceremonies celebrate and honor moments of transition critical to the next phase of life. The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path offers a ceremony for every stage of human maturation. Centuries past these ceremonies were more tribal in nature involving entire communities that taught children self-authority and how to be a responsible contributing member of the tribe. We are being called back to remember these old ways. It does take a village to raise a healthy, ethical, and empowered child. Our Family Vision Quest is suitable for all ages; children, teens, parents, couples considering conception, and individual adults wishing to honor major life transitions.

We welcome back Amara Keeps the Fire, Rite of Passage Specialist with many years experience supporting rites especially for teens. Our team of facilitators is supported by Rite of Passage Specialists Kelly Jumping Mouse, Michael Star Dreamer, and Mary Whispering Snow.
