Pathmaker Fall Fast Weekend: Seek & Surrender

  • Dogwood Forrest 4141 Joyce Drive Kansas City, KS, 66104 United States (map)

What is it to live the examined, emplaced, and initiated life? 

No matter where you are in it, beginning, end, or in between, creating time away to take inventory of who you are, what is serving you and shedding the extraneous, marking/honoring natural transitions by age or life-change, or just taking stock of where you are in this crazy journey is a vital part of a functioning and flourishing existence, to go into your deepest self and have a listen to what it says. 

The Vision Fast is a time honored pan-cultural tradition that marks transitions, both of age and intention and connects one more deeply to the place they're in. We have such need for alternative spaces in our world of constant input and consumption; to remind us we are wild things, inexorably connected to the people and places around us.

The Pathmaker Quest is our flagship program that will first ask you to find the path you’ve been on before working to develop the kind you want to make moving forward. 

This is a 7 week program for seekers of all kinds. It will introduce you to rites of passage, deep reflection, and a rewilding of social equity through 5 weekly gatherings of individual and group work held at our outdoor classroom within Wickerson Studios LLC]. This will lead into a 36 hr. guided fast on the closing weekend held on 40 acres near the edge of Kansas City, KS known as 'Dogwood Forrest.' A month after the program has ended, we will come back together and discuss how the work begun during the quest is translating and showing up in your life.
