Episode Info:

Practicing Community is less a 'podcast' and more a series of resources, stories, and conversations coming from the vast array of practitioners and changemakers working within and alongside the Youth Passageways network, forming our community of practice. In this episode, we embark on a humbling and magic filled dialogue about life, our connection to wild places and the cathartic power of nature-based rites of passage with Larry Hobbs. From the High Arctic to the School of Lost Borders, the newly held 'Wayfaring Fast' as well as the many places in and between, there's something here for anyone and everyone! About This Months Guest: Larry has worked in a variety of both humanitarian and nature-based work throughout his lifetime. From a field biologist studying whales and dolphins to a psychotherapist working with individual and family systems to a teacher and naturalist leading wildlife expeditions worldwide, to years of Rites of Passage training at the School of Lost Borders. Larry has dedicated many years to the 4H Challenge Program embedded within the Washington State University’s extension program with a vision of making traditional Rites of Passage available to all 4H youth. Although still conducting river dolphin research in Southeast Asia and teaching and leading natural history trips around the world, Larry’s passion rests in guiding Rites of Passage and in sharing his knowledge of the ways we interrelate with and understand the natural world that supports us all.
