In our journey of molting and becoming, we’re also everyone we’ve ever been. This has big implications for how we learn and how well we’re able to utilize spiritual practices, ritual skills, and the large body of teachings on remembering soul and purpose.

In this free public teaching, we’ll bring perspectives from developmental psychology and stages of consciousness into conversation with wisdom on initiation and rites of passage. The approach will be pragmatic, non-dogmatic, and culturally mindful with an intention to share tangible, supportive skills.

We are animals and ancestors returned, Earth and stars, human and not only human.

Daniel Foor, Ph.D.
