Initiations were banned 6000 years ago by the patriarchal empire. This means it will be necessary for you to go to the edges of modern culture to initialize your adulthood potentials.
Fortunately, this website is at that edge, a bridge between modern culture and next culture.
Next culture? Next culture centers itself around authentic adulthood initiatory processes. Modern culture is centered around personal gain and making a profit, regardless of the social, environmental, or personal costs. By now it should be perfectly clear that modern culture is being run by uninitiated adolescents.
Next culture does not come from repairing modern culture. Modern culture cannot be repaired. It is not broken. It is doing exactly as it is designed to do. Modern culture is exterminating life on Earth and replacing it with computers full of big numbers owned by a few people.
Next culture is as different from modern culture’s capitalist patriarchal empire as modern culture is from roving matriarchal clans hunting and gathering.
Next culture is regenerative, sustainable, something wildly new, richly diverse, the archetypally initiated feminine ecstatically co-creating with the archetypally initiated masculine. Next culture is not matriarchy or patriarchy; it is archearchy.
Next culture acknowledges that Earth is not our planet. We do not live on spaceship Earth (Buckminster Fuller was wrong about this…). We are the Earth.
We are the part of the forest that stood up and talks and can initiate each other enough to disidentify from our bodies and from our psychological belief systems (our Boxes…) and grow into our adult and archetypal potentials.
Below modern culture’s news radar, next culture is rapidly emerging in thousands of places around the Earth simultaneously as human awareness increases.
Awareness leads to responsibility. Responsibility is consciousness in action. Each distinction you get activates greater personal authority in you.
During initiation you take responsibility for something you may never have imagined could be taken responsibility for. This puts you at source for that thing. For example, before you take responsibility for your energetic center you reflexively give your center away to external authority figures as a survival strategy. After you are initiated regarding your center you consciously decide what you do with your center. From each new point of origin the next initiatory gateway becomes visible.
Nobody can get initiated for you.
Nobody can stop you from getting initiated.

The FAQ section (Frequently Asked Questions) explains how initiations work, and the differences between traditional indigenous initiations and the kinds of initiations needed in today’s unstable conditions with no working role models to adopt.
This website explains the necessity for authentic initiations into next culture adulthood so your mind understands why you might decide to spend time, energy, money, and excitement getting yourself initiated. You might not be able to explain it to your mother at first… but at least you will have more certainty about why you crave learning experiences that come from beyond what was given to you at school.
This website also provides links to a few initiators we have found to be reputable and worthy. This can be a useful reference for taking your next steps.
There is no particular order for initiatory experiences. The circle has no end. Trust what you are attracted to next and go do it. Also try the path of greatest resistance.
Someone might show you a gateway, but no one can go through for you, not even to save your life…
What you do next is up to you.
Understanding can only take you so far…
