Seeking initiation in Oregon

posted by Eivind on September 27, 2009, at 10:56 pm

Over the last year or so, I have been writing several movie reviews where I have emphasized the importance of initiation. I think the lack of initiatory rites for men in our culture is the main reason why so many men have problems finding their place in life and living from a place of authenticity and power.

In one week only, I travel to Oregon to meet my personal mentor for the first timel. It has been quite a journey even getting to this point, and I look forward to it with. At the same time, I feel like I'm jumping into a huge unknown where anything can happen. Of course it is a little scary.

This event is huge and marks a milestone in my life. It's also something I've had to do to stay in integrity with all my proselytizing on this site about the importance of said rites. Integrity is getting to be incredibly important in my life. So I just want to thank you all for holding me accountable. I will get back to you when I return to Norway on October 12.

I think I'm in for the ride of my life.
