LifeWays Programs:
Living aligned with the natural cycles of life

“In listening to and learning about how each stage of life contains a particular gift for community as well as a job of personal growth, I felt some pain and sadness at how I had moved in my own life, as a father and young man, without proper guidance to navigate that part of my life. This discovery awakened a need to grieve and let go of old sadness and shame, and to claim a deeper sense of purpose in my work and a stronger connection with my children, who are now young adults.”

The mystery of life and the natural order of things has been undervalued and cast aside in our globalized culture.

Deep inside, many of us mourn this loss. It leaves us feeling vaguely disconnected and ungrounded.  We lack the confident sense of “belonging” that comes from knowing our place and relationship and with the natural  world.

Human societies throughout history have moved through the stages of life with teachings on how to do so, ceremonies that help align our lives to the natural world, and initiations that help move us through major life transitions, such as from childhood to adulthood.

LifeWays provides workshops, ceremonies, and initiations that support us through the phases and transitions we all experience, helping us align with the wisdom and gifts of each phase of life.

We call this alignment Life Cycle Living.

Behind all LifeWays offerings is the deep-rooted belief that ageless human wisdom is available to guide us through anything we face.

Let’s face it—Googling “the meaning of life” won’t answer your question.

It’s ironic that so many feel we are losing an awareness and appreciation of “how life is” with the amount of information at our fingertips. With readily available explanations for everything, something in all of us knows there’s more to our lives than a bunch of facts.

Many of us find ourselves struggling to cope with the natural changes that are part of every human life. We can easily feel like we’re blindly scurrying through a maze of situations with an underlying fear that it’s all hopeless. Is there a reason we age, or is the loss of youth a flaw that we should try to overcome at all costs? And what of death—an almost taboo topic that many see as “the worst possible thing”—yet a reality that is a part of every human life?
