The Tamarix Project, Legacy Outdoor Adventures, School of Lost Borders
Colorado Plateau
Tamarix belongs to the waters of Boulder mountain, the sandstone expanses of the high Desert, the subtle magic of Pinyon-Juniper forests, and all the beings who live and die here. Tamarix claims the traditions of wilderness guiding, poetry, rogue wine-drunk taoism, and animistic witchcraft, as well as the archetypes of the trickster, the psychopomp, and the wounded healer. 

As a wilderness rites-of-passage guide, Tamarix brings their 10+ years experience as a wilderness therapy guide, their knowledge of the non-human world through the mediums of herbalism, witchcraft, and ancestral skills, and their deep trust in both the wisdom of wild spaces and the fasting ceremony utilized by the SOLB. Tamarix attended the month-long training in 2017, the Animas Valley Institute's YLSI (yearlong intensive soulcraft intensive) in 2017-18, and assisted Meredith and Joseph with the 2018 Great Ballcourt Fast. Tamarix has created a rites-of-passage program for Legacy Outdoor Adventures, a wilderness therapy program, utilizing the SOLB model.  Tamarix is deeply committed to this work and this ceremony, and is interested in assisting to both serve the work and to learn from others. Tamarix also has a WFR, a truck, and many years of experience guiding folks in a wilderness context.
