Explore who you are and your higher purpose. Spend the week on a college campus naming your passions and putting them to use in the world. Build a community with teens from around the states in workshops, discussions, play and service. Immerse yourself in a spiritual community like you’ve never seen before!
Our week will be filled with story telling — people of all ages sharing how THEY have identified their gifts and strengths and lived them out to make the world a better place. During the week YOU will begin to write your own “story” by:
- Find Yourself by identifying YOUR passions, gifts and skills.
- Find Yourself in Nature by exploring the amazing ways we are connected the the environment.
- Find Yourself in the Divine by slowing down and noticing all that is around you.
- Find Yourself in Community by designing THE BEST spiritual community.
- Find Yourself in Society by claiming your unique voice and using it out in the world.
