Reawakening individuals to their interconnections with themselves, the community, and the earth.
Compassionate Human Culture
ReTribe provides a wide range of programs that all help to guide youth and adults through the many transformations of life. Whether it be the small changes of childhood as our day campers learn to build fires, carve wood, and explore their imaginations in the woods, or the profound changes that the teens face on our Rites of Passage retreats as they find themselves, explore deep emotions, and experience the intensity of the Threshold experience - participants will come away from all our programs having grown and transformed, bringing them one step closer to the person that they hope to become.
ReTribe is more than just an educational organization, we are a community of people who want to live our lives in connection with each other and the earth. Many of our staff live cooperatively together year round. We grow most of our own food and spend our days doing what we can to help others heal, and find a positive and joyful way to contribute to our world. When we aren't running programming we try to create space for community by playing music in the local parks, and holding gatherings where we can share healthy food from our gardens. We are proud to offer our participants local, organic and whole foods on our retreats. Much of this food is grown by ReTribe mentors and teens in our beautiful gardens.
"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been — a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free."
