Rites of Passage Retreat

Presenting Partner: Growth Guiders

Program Description: In this advanced retreat in ceremonial design and ritual practice, attendees will look more closely at the nature of self-generated ceremonies that honor the healthy maturation of self and other members of their chapter. Drawing upon ideas of the Indigenous peoples, the retreat will bring together the introductory workshops – Useful and True Ceremonies and Ritualism & Sacred Experiences to further develop the competencies associated with leading healthy Rights of Passage for groups. Participants will be invited to design their own self-generated healing ceremony and then we will enact those ceremonies in the presence of fellow attendees. Previous experience with ritual enactment is highly recommended.


  • Identify how to work through a design process for rituals and ceremonies.
  • Apply organizational & community values along with Fraternity ethics throughout the design process.
  • Present the opportunity for attendees to create a personalized ceremony for working on Rights of Passage at home in their own chapters.

Time: 2-day retreat (12 hours)

Intended Audience: IFC Leadership, Chapter Leadership Teams, Fraternity Educators & Ritualists, Chapter Advisors
