on a literal odyssey
The ANASAZI Foundation has forever changed my life.
The ANASAZI Foundation is a wilderness therapy program for troubled youth (13-17) and struggling young adults (18-25). ANASAZI offers a 42-day, wilderness-based, residential treatment program and outpatient services rooted in the belief that all people—regardless of their struggles or at-risk choices—possess an inherent “seed of greatness.” This idea permeates ANASAZI’s philosophy and its effects are life-changing.
The primary mission of ANASAZI is to prepare parents and children to turn their hearts to one another, begin anew and walk in harmony in the “wilderness” of the world.
I started working as a TrailWalker at ANASAZI in 2007. That marked a turning point in my life. ANASAZI rejuvenated my soul. I often describe this period of my life as if I had just started seeing color for the first time.
The simple principles taught at ANASAZI (the fundamental belief in a Creator, Forwards and Backwards Walking, having a new beginning, a Heart at War and a Heart at Peace and the Seven Paths of the ANASAZI Way) can, and have changed the lives of thousands of participants. I am constantly amazed by the caliber of the staff and the miracles which take place in the ANASAZI wilderness on a daily basis. More than that, I marvel at the healing which takes place in the families that participate in ANASAZI.
For these reasons and more, I have quietly pledged in my heart to consistently support ANASAZI. I hope and pray that you too will discover the peace and joy that comes from living the ANASAZI way.
