Cost: $500 ($450 early bird registration before June 30, 2019)
Note that registration deadline is September 15, 2019.
Thank you for your interest in the Men's Rites of Passage event at Rolling Ridge.
The Rites of Passage are most appropriate for those who are spiritually searching, who have done some kind of men’s work already, and who are not in a major reaction against God, grace, or transformation. It is important to note that you must have a basic mobility and health that will allow you to crawl, hike, and fast.
It is best if you approach this experience as a lone seeker. Fathers and sons are normally not initiated together, nor is this a buddy experience. You may come with friends but expect to be assigned to a group where you will be anonymous and start from zero together with your group. (You will actually find this to be an advantage.)
Cost: If accepted, your deposit becomes non-refundable and is applied toward the total cost of $500.00. ( If your application and final payment is received by June 30 you will qualify for our EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT and your total cost will be $450.) If you are not accepted, your deposit will be returned. For those requiring financial assistance in order to participate, we offer a limited number of scholarships covering up to 50% of the registration fee.
You may not make this initiation rite more than once.
Please answer these questions honestly and not in a perfunctory manner.
Please note that your application is not considered complete until a $50 deposit has been received. Please pay deposit online.
