Cofounder of the School of Lost Borders
“We are at a time of reclaiming the wisdom of our ancestors and our roots reflected in the land around us, and asking the challenging questions of how to take responsibility for the truth that we are the ancestors who must take our place in this global world as a part of the guidance of all of life into the future”.
Meredith Little and her husband Steven Foster cofounded “Rites of Passages Inc.” in 1976 and the “School of Lost Borders” in 1981, which paved the way for new methods of pan-cultural rites of passage in the wilderness and created innovative methods in “field eco-therapy.” Meredith dedicates her life to bringing back significant and culturally appropriate rites of passage for all people. These rites, which are intimately linked with the natural cycles of living and dying, are essential for a healthy life and a healthy world. She also devotes herself to the task of helping people reconnect with the deep roots of their own nature, which are reflected in the wisdom of the land around them. She is passionately committed to the diversity of life, to human nature, to the voice of ritual, and to the healing powers of community.
