How does rite of passage affect the rest of your life? Are you really alive?

So you've experienced your Rite of Passage, you're speaking to your animal spirits, now what? Jayson gives us some suggestions on how to take your insight back into the world and how to stay connected to your highest self throughout your life.

What is the Rite of Passage really about? Are you in touch with the fact that one day you will die? Rite of Passage work gives men an alternative to their tendency to stay up in their head and analyze. It allows you to stay present in your body, feel from your heart, and be truly aware of the world around you.

Popular culture often hints at the kind of initiation into manhood we are talking about. War films, coming of age tales and hero stories are often built around a man's Rite of Passage in some way. Fight Club pointed to the problem, but didn't really offer a workable solution. The film Into the Wild is Jayson's favorite Rite of Passage story, and every man with these questions should check it out. Email Jayson: Jay(at)innernature(dot)org
