Peter Coffaro has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Wilderness Leadership and Human Development from Prescott College in Arizona. His enthusiasm and dedication to the field have motivated him to explore a variety of landscapes, from the deserts of the Southwest to the Alaskan alpine and beyond. Having instructed several extended backcountry courses, Peter grew to understand the significance of self growth, team building, and conflict resolution.
Peter is now continuing his education at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the East West Psychology Graduate program. At this juncture, he is focusing his studies on adolescent rites of passage processes throughout history and the world, especially in Earth-based traditions.
Peter believes in community and has structured many aspects of his life to creating community around him, including co-founding an intentional community with eight adults and two children in the heart of Oakland. He sees the Stepping Stones Project as an exciting opportunity to step into deep processing rituals both with individuals and as a group. He is committed to structures such as SSP, in which we co-create with leaders, families, and most importantly students, to foster authentic, enlivening experiences together. It is within a group that can embody acceptance and grow. Nothing would make Peter more pleased than to step into this process with you.
