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: Live into your vocation. Stay focused and engaged. Sharpen your skills. Reimagine what it means to live, love, and lead in the way of Jesus. Invite others to join you and bring their unique contributions. Celebrate God’s abundance and share it generously with your community.
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: Invite others to the table of grace. Celebrate the fruit of the Spirit as we explore new ways to lead in the way of Jesus and create community.
$395 per season. The seasons flow from one to the next and 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 and the annual retreat will be offered at an additional charge for those who want to dig deeper and stay connected to this leadership community. Scholarships may be available as needed.
Optional INTO THE WILD Offerings
6 personalized coaching sessions designed to help you leverage what you are learning in the cohort, help you gain greater clarity on your calling, and help you take tangible, real time steps into your divine vocation.
1 annual optional retreat to fuel camaraderie and community amongst Into The Wild participants and alumni, to advance our learning as we come in from the wild with stories to share, to celebrate wins, and to have fun!
