Adult Quest Reunion Event

A message from Adult Quester and Journeys Volunter Kathie Gillet about our upcoming Adult Wilderness Quest Reunion. This event has been long in the works and will be the first big reunion event ever held by Rite of Passage Journeys.

By Kathie Gillet, Adult Quest 2005 Participant and Journeys Volunteer

I completed my Quest with Rite of Passage Journeys in 2005, which led me to see my life as a path of sacred service.  The intention that I carried with me on my vision involved seeking ways to live transparently and invisibly.  That is to say that you can see my heart in all that I say and do and that to do this work I must I am currently working on my graduate degree in leadership and social justice so that I can strengthen the skills necessary to impact positive change in our communities. At this stage, what excites me most is the prospect of integrating my love of traveling and cross-cultural experiences with the continued work that aligns us with the intelligence of our hearts. I am very excited and privileged to be coordinating this event and working with the members of our planning committee, who are also dedicated alumni.  Each of us has personally experienced the power of the quest and we are committed to creating a meaningful experience for all of us.

Edith Kusnic , who joined Rite of Passage Journeys in 1999, has been instrumental in Journeys' formative years and her continued presence and strength guide Journeys growth.   After completing her own vision quest, she served as an Adult Vision Quest Guide.  She also co-facilitated a new program, "Stepping into Elderhood".  I had the pleasure to speak with Edith about some of the ways she envisions this reunion. "Thinking about what it means to step fully and powerfully into the role of an elder made me begin to think about bringing more consciousness to the element of social roles and how we choose to enact them."  Edith came away from this year's "Stepping into Elderhood" with a vision of creating retreats designed to witness and honor adults stepping into other life-stage-related roles.  Edith's vision includes an image of adults coming together "to see Journeys as a place to come back to at various stages of adulthood."
