Mentor Retreat - Teen Transitions (non-residential)

  • Warwick, NY, 10990 United States (map)

A weekend for mothers and fathers, teachers and all carers of adolescent children who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the forces at play upon and within the children they know.

This experiential weekend will provide a safe space in which to explore the challenges of adolescence from a personal perspective. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, learn and practice powerful skills within an empathetic frame-work of positive sponsorship - the intention being that you can build closer relationships with the children in your community and better support one of life's most demanding transitions.  

This time in any ones life is truly an ordeal in the mythological sense and one which is almost completely ignored in contemporary western culture.  This time in a young persons life is also profoundly rich with latent potential and possibility for the life ahead - a life that grows immeasurably when it is witnessed and blessed  by adults and peers groups alike. 

Sunday will be dedicated to creating an honouring ritual for any teenagers you wish to invite along with the intention of having them also explore their own intentions and relationship to responsibility in the coming academic year.

Further details will be announced shortly - places will be limited to 20.
