Reclaiming The 2nd Half of Life

"Those who don't learn the story being lived through them don't become old enough, or ancient enough to

serve the dreaming of life."


Awaken The Sage Project is part of Tree of Totems cultural movement restoring the practices, understandings and culture that reclaims our second half of life as the blooming time instead of growing older time.

Cross culturally our second half of life was the time we became ripe enough to heal our past and bloom into the deeper powers, gifts and relationship with the unique "medicine" we have to contribute to the dreaming of life ongoing.

We're restoring the rites of passage, mentoring, rituals, and culture the enables us to shift from merely growing older to healing our past and blooming into the deeper layers and meanings of our life. 

"Elders are those who have survived little deaths and have learned something of the beauty and meaning of being fully alive. " ~ Meade
