There are precise moments in which we experience transformation in our bodies and in our awareness:
these moments are called Rites of Passage.
At the Earth Lodge each age group has its own specific activities, ceremonies, Rites of Passage. There are moments for “playing” within groups and other moments for gathering with the whole community…
In this Lodge the children learn through creative games, painting, sculpting, singing at the big collective drum, walking in nature, listening to fairy tales around the campfire.
Boys and girls who are between 10 and 13 are no longer children but not yet adolescents: we involve the them with creative activities, nourishing their curiosity and their willingness to build deep bonds.
Teen Lodge put together boys and girls from 13 to 17 who will receive teachings, confront with their peers and with adults in order to understand better themselves and have a clear look at their life goals.
Young adults from 18 to 26 continue their personal growth, strengthening their bonds and deepening their roots so to become mature adults and more and more responsible.
Adults will have the opportunity of living moments of pure amusement, aggregation and sharing – exactly as in a big family – and they’ll have opportunities of evolution and self growth.
The Earth Lodge is the best way that I know to
get a glimpse of a better life, with more light, more hope, more determination for the future.
It’s never too late nor too early to make the difference on this planet.
On my bookshelf, I have a group picture of the Children Lodge: it keeps me company, especially in those days when everything seems obeying to Murphy’s Law. I see those faces painted and smiling and in my heart hope is kindled.
The thing that touched me about Earth Lodge has been the opportunity of sharing this experience with my all family, in contact with nature, with different activities, ceremonies and teachings for children, teen, adults and the sensation of being in a larger family, with the willingness of growing together.
