Ordeal weekend

It tested everyone.

We’ve ALL just got back from the challenge weekend of rock climbing, abseiling, navigating tidal waves in the Irish Sea and the leap of faith.

The pressure cooker of experiences always reveal how the young Brothers respond to such tasks, or ordeals. Never easy this one, all leading to the character defining session…, Special Truth.

    Micah had a fabulous time in Wales and he is now enthusing about the activities, the journey (there and back) and the fun he had. Thank you guys so much for managing that and allowing Micah to be included, despite the difficulties you were faced with regarding his behaviour and perceptions.

    What a wonderful experience and one that I know he will always remember ! You guys have really impacted on his life and for that I am truley grateful. Really impressed with all of you for making such a big different in the lives of so many. Thank you!

  8. Congrats to ALL for your journey on this weekend.

    My son seemed to take the physical activities in his stride and approach them with his courage at the forefront and his trust in his elders’ hands. He believed in himself, when he was advised that he could do it. Additionally, my son was faced with a personal/ emotional challenge. He responded to the situation with a positive choice, which was honourable and had a level of integrity not always acknowledged or ‘brought out’ in our youngsters by the mainstream systems. It is good to see the work that started on a physical level, manifesting in him as life lessons. I can see the work the Originites are doing may start as physical activity, but that what they are learning goes deeper in strengthening them as well rounded young men.

    Many thanks, ORIGIN for providing the space for these young men to become.
