Born out of a cry of the wilderness heart, Beyond the Threshold is a growing, connected group of men and women who share a common respect for the wilderness, each other, and the wider community.
We are located in Perth, Western Australia, and offer nature based rites of passage in the form of vision fasts. In the near future we will also be offering training for 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 that these experiences contain, form - in part - the essence of our life.
And so it is that we have chosen to offer the vision fast as a time-honored way for individuals to mark and make meaning of their own transitions.
Since 2006 Glenis has held a range of roles in rite of passage programs for both teens and adults and trained as a guide with Rites of Passage, Inc, in 2008. Being an experienced vision fast guide, and also an educator for over twenty years, reflects her joy of being creatively connected with both people and nature. Glenis brings a deep passion for sharing the fruits of mother earth’s teachings and being of service to the greater community.
A man of vision, a germinator of seeds, a storyteller from the heart. Gary brings listening and ‘hearing the unspoken’ to his calling as a passage rite guide. Through his continuing life journey of internal reconciliation he offers the gifts of new growth and the celebration of being alive. He has been actively involved with youth and adult rite of passage work since 2005 and completed his training as a wilderness guide with The School of Lost Borders in 2007.
We provide the substantial level of logistical and practical support that a wilderness based program demands. While the very nature of a vision fast requires that an individual is prepared to undergo an appropriate degree of challenge, our primary concern is that they do this safely.
