Initiation: Boys Are Born, Men Are Trained Kindle Edition
by Jeffrey Prather

Follow Jeff Prather’s personal odyssey to spiritual manhood under a legendary Apache singer in the mountains and deserts of Arizona. Prather is tempered physically and astounded spiritually, experiencing a hidden world of incandescent power. To the outside white world the Apache were the tigers of the Southwest. Yet Prather learns that paradoxically the most sacred ceremony of these stoic warriors is the coming of age of each little girl. The ferocious physical prowess of these ultimate warriors emerges from their innate spirituality—and sense of humor. Training with the descendants of Cochise and Geronimo, Prather discovers that, though boys and girls are born, men and women must be trained in the rigors of adulthood. He learns that we are defined by our duties to others. Further, we are all connected by an invisible realm of luminous energy, and if we access these etheric meridians, we can direct divine power through us to protect, heal and connect to all our relations—to literally change our lives and save the world, one life at a time.
“As essential as water—a handbook for the human race.”
– Dr. Joseph K. Eleid, M.D.
“This book is a great read! It is entertaining and full of ancient teachings that offer practical life advice for today. For more than 18 years I have experienced personally, and witnessed in others, the changes in life that result when people practice the techniques described in this book.”
– Darin Ashley, Major, USMC (Ret)
To learn about Apache Initiation read Jeffrey’s book “Initiation: Boys Are Born, Men Are Trained”. Despite the title, Initiation is for Men and Women.

Initiation Seminar

Group and Private Initiations with Jeffrey Prather
Location: Tucson, Arizona

Click here to register!
Today’s society offers driver’s licenses, voting rights, and secular education, but no adulthood training, and no transition to adulthood. Initiation does.
Native cultures have long known that their children must be formally trained for their roles as responsible adults in society. Men and women are vital to each other, the family, and society. The roles of men and women are unique and different, and both are essential. The family, now endangered by popular culture, is the basic building block vital to a free, healthy society.
This seminar is part of a cycle of intensives leading to spiritual, psychological and emotional resiliency and maturity. Jeff Prather founded Initiation in 1988 after his own rite of passage training with legendary Apache Medicine man Phillip Cassadore. His experiences are chronicled in his book INITIATION: My Journey with an Apache Medicine Man, included free with registration.
