Our retreats include a variety of optional activities and workshops including improvisational theater, poetry, drumming and dancing, dream interpretation and shamanic journeying, wilderness skills, handcraft arts, and more. $850.

94% of cultures worldwide and throughout history have provided their adolescents with a Rite of Passage experience to help, not only celebrate their move from childhood to adulthood, but to create the psychological state change that is necessary for this maturation.   Using wisdom from other cultures, we've created an updated, modern version of this process, complete with the necessary 'threshold' experiences that allow this psychological healing and growth.

I’ve been going to ReTribe for seven years, and they have been some of my happiest memories. It creates a culture that I can’t find anywhere else.
