Thresholds Cohorts are collaborative learning communities for people ready to step across the ragged edge of conventionality and reimagine what it means to live, soulfully, imaginatively, and courageously
OUR NEXT COHORT OFFERING
INTO THE WILD
Something is stirring deep within you. The structures you’ve lived within—and perhaps even helped create—feel increasingly ill-fitting for the road ahead. Your heart aches to be unleashed and renewed. You sense an invitation from the Sacred Voice to dream and to discover a new way of being in the world. You are ready to step across a threshold into the unknown, with fresh imagination and great hope.
But going alone is risky. Deep life change is disruptive and destabilizing, sometimes causing us to walk with a limp or lose our way.
Into the Wild offers you space to lean into your longings with the encouragement of like-hearted dreamers and spiritual/social entrepreneurs. Facilitated by trustworthy guides who have walked unknown paths for decades, Into the Wild flows from the core conviction that creativity, clarity and resilience are found in the company of a discerning community
Our lives – like all of nature – unfold in an endless cycle of seasons, each with their own unique purpose and challenge. In the midst of this living ecology we offer four seasonal cohorts.
Into The Wild: Autumn: Lean into autumn’s paradox of dying and preparing for a new season of life. Shed the weight of others’ expectations, find beauty in the midst of loss, and prepare your soul for the coming winter and a new spring.
Into The Wild: Winter: In the stillness of winter reflect deeply on the life you’ve lived and begin to reimagine a new reality. Look underground to discern what God is shaping in you in the midst of uncertainty. In the quiet expanse of winter, gain clarity on the direction God is taking you.
Into The Wild: Spring: Step boldly into the wild and into your hopes and dreams. Take chances, get dirty, experiment, learn to adapt, and begin to co-create with the Creator of all. Let Life and Light break through the messy surface and have their divine way right where you have been placed.
Into The Wild: Summer: If you have participated in any of the Autumn, Winter, or Spring cohorts, then join us on a road trip retreat to the tropical rain forest coast in Puerto Rico for a 4 night, 5 day celebration! We will reflect on the goodness of God, share stories of what we have learned as we have attempted to live into the seasons of life. We’ll focus of the refreshment of our souls and reimagine what it means to live, love, and lead in the way of Jesus.
On each call we will draw on the wisdom of those who have gone before us, the shared wisdom of the cohort’s participants and guides, and on best practices… ancient and contemporary.
6 semi-monthly cohort calls crafted to tackle the purpose of each season. These are the desired outcomes for each season:
Autumn: Disentangle yourself and renew your soul for the seasons ahead as we examine our self-expectations and obligations and realign our priorities.
Winter: Gain clarity on who you are and reimagine a new way of being. Create a timeline of your live and develop a personal life compass to navigate your journey.
Spring: It’s time to get outside and take action! Take tangible steps to live out your unique calling as you listen to your heart and the Voice. Sharpen your adaptive skills as you engage culture and process your experiences with the cohort and your coach.
Summer: Summer is a season of celebrating the harvest! You are invited to come year after year to a table of grace, food, and drink to celebrate the fruit of the Spirit in our lives and in our communities. We’ll hike in the rain forest, play at the beach, linger in the presence of the Divine, and find rest for our souls and inspiration for the seasons ahead.
$395 per season. The seasons flow from one to the next to complete a natural cycle, but you can participate in any season that best addresses your needs. Each season will be offered in the same season of the year that they address. Personal coaching sessions are included throughout the cohort at no additional charge to help leverage what you are learning in the cohort, gain greater clarity on your calling, and to help you take tangible steps into your divine vocation. Scholarships may be available as needed.
The summer season takes place at the KINEO retreat center in a tropical rain forest along the coast of Puerto Rico. The summer cohort is offered to all those who have participated in any of the other cohorts and is designed to cultivate an on-going Into the Wild learning community. Towards that aim, alumni of the Autumn, Winter, and/or Spring cohorts are invited to come back year after year to connect with their cohort friends and with the wider Into the Wild community. There is no additional cost for this retreat except for what it will cost you to get there!
