    Wilderness Solo
    Canaan Downs
    12 Nov - 18 Nov 2020

    A wilderness solo is a contemporary translation of the ancient ritual of the vision quest, which was held in all corners of the world. Originally it was used as a rite of passage from youth to adulthood. Adolescents left their community in order to search for a vision for this life, their gift to their people. We miss this kind of ritual reflection time today and this places many people on a path which is not their own and can lead to confusion. A wilderness solo can help you get (more) clarity about what is essential to you.

    This is a week long event, which includes three nights spent solo in the bush up at beautifull Canaan Downs on Takaka Hill. There will be a preparation time before and assimilation time after the solo.

    Tides Rite of Passage
    Tui Events Park
    12 Jan - 16 Jan 2021

    5 days and 4 nights strengthening the bond between mother & daughter

    Girls need a supportive transition into adulthood…  

    Learning from others, and developing your daughter’s confidence as they move towards a positive future. 

    Teenagers face one of the most exciting and challenging times of their life - building an independent identity, while moving into a wider world of possible risk and danger. Young women need good women who are prepared to share the deepest truth about their lives. Without that, they run the risk of building an identity based on guess work from peers, borrowed images, media stereotypes and the fantastical heroes of popular culture.

    Now more than ever, they need real women present in their lives.

    Tides encourages mothers and women to help create an experience for the young women they care about, encouraging them to grow true to themselves. It’s an exciting inner and outer adventure held in beautiful Golden Bay. Events run 3 times a year in the January, April and September school holidays.

    For young people; Tides will help you move beyond ‘childhood’, build self-confidence, uncover your uniqueness and discover your strengths, qualities, and potential in a new way. Women of all ages will encourage you to trust your intuition, find your voice and make strong choices. From here you will stand more confidently in the world on your own two feet ensuring a lot of fun along the way.
