"Beyond the Threshold is a group of men and women who aim to create an embodied practice of courageous communication that supports our own growth. We celebrate as we guide ourselves and others into a deeper relationship with nature, one which is empowering, life-affirming and sustainable"
beyond the threshold
We offer nature based rites of passage in the form of intentional day walks and vision fasts in Western Australia and Victoria. Subject to community response, we also offer training of rite of passage guides.
We acknowledge that the arc of a human life includes an accumulation of initiatory experiences - some large, others less so. The interplay of growth and decay of these experiences form, in part, the essence of our life.
And so it is that we have chosen to offer nature based programs as a time-honored way for individuals to mark and make meaning of their own transitions.

top five regrets of the dying
I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
"Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved."
Our roots are in the dark; the earth is our country. Why did we look up for blessing instead of around and down?
What hope we have lies there in the earth we have looked down upon. Not from above, but from below.
Not in the light that blinds, but in the dark that nourishes, where human beings grow human souls.
Ursula K. Le Guin
