Bee Flower Donations and PaymentsFunds received from donations are used to provide scholarship assistance for those who wish to participate in our programs but cannot afford the full tuition. Scholarship assistance is typically in the $250 range, but we can offer  larger scholarships when the need is great and we receive generous donations. For example,in 2008 we provided two full scholarships to men from the Mohawk Nation who participated in our Men’s Vision Quest.

Donate to our Veterans’ Program

Rites of Passage is developing a no-cost program for US military veterans, in partnership with GRuB, a community-based organization in Washington State, and with the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs. We are seeking donations to guide veterans on Vision Quest and to train veterans to guide other veterans on healing rites of passage.
Mark Oravsky, formerly a Staff Sargeant in the U.S. Army, is one of the veterans who is training to be a Vision Quest guide for the veterans’ community.  He writes of his own Vision Quest experience:

veteran2Through this challenging experience, I have re-established a more profound connection to myself, others and the living world around me. The solo time, fast and self-initiated ceremonies allowed me the opportunity to face, process and fully walk-through many of the root causes of my current diagnosed PTSD resulting from both childhood and combat related traumas. …Since we’ve returned, I haven’t experienced a nightmare or woken up once from the time my head hit the pillow. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and excited to start the day.
