When large numbers of young people are self-harming, develop eating disorders and have poor self-image and low self-esteem, something is lacking in their life. It appears that fundamentalist organisations and networks have an appeal which our culture lacks, with a strong narrative of heroism, purpose and belonging.
Could providing adequate rites of passage and spiritual support enable young people find their own vision and narratives, making sense of the world around them and preserving a sense of magic and personal
We wish to examine these issues and more. We wish to recognise and encourage young people’s thirst for magic, their need for heroism and belonging and their need to be heard and taken seriously, bearing in mind that today’s young people are the “Earth keepers” and decision makers of the future.
We wish to invite people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds and a variety of views and schools of thought to connect, exchange ideas, support each other, allowing people to connect to others and putting like-minded people in touch with each other !
We would like to hear from you if you are willing to participate and be listed in a directory so others can contact you. We also invite you to actively share information about this initiative with anyone you know who might be interested. We thank you in advance!
If you are passionate about the voices and concerns of young people and have an open mind – please get in touch with us and we will keep you posted on what unfolds!
