In this follow-up, advanced workshop for young adults, intrepid adventurers can take the Wayfinder Experience one step further and learn powerful strategies to be heart-centered warriors, healers, and magic users in everyday life.

Through mask work, contact improv, trust exercises, creative writing, and fire circles, we deepen the community and self work ignited by previous Wayfinder Experience workshops.

Players who have taken a Wayfinder Experience workshop in the past are invited.
