Using the symbol of the Medicine Wheel of the indigenous people of the Americas and the metaphor of the journey of a great warrior, this guide takes young men further into a holistic process of growth and transformation that includes four areas of human development: emotional/spiritual, psychological, social, and intellectual.

The journey begins by exploring marginalized young men’s challenges, strengths, and coping strategies formed after a premature loss of love and protection in the family and the natural world. A “journey of return” invites council members to rediscover a sustaining internal resource of protection, security and belonging, or “Home Base.” The journey continues to build upon individual and collective resources to reclaim or create dreams, develop goals, increase social and cooperative skills, and choose and apply transformative behaviors in their relationships and activities in order to overcome barriers and create lives of contribution, meaning, and connection. Group challenges include: the Great Warrior’s personal narrative, Trapped Inside the Dungeon - a cycle of addiction and exit strategies, Crossing the Bridge in nature, Vision Charting, The Voice of Nature, “Hardware-Software” and Personal Traits, Planning and Executing an Ecological Project, Role Play with a Leadership Style, and many more activities both indoors and in the outdoors to empower participants to recognize their interdependency and value within all of life’s systems- social, personal, and in the natural world.
