From dust to tribe . . .

Dust and Tribe (D&T) is the experience of growth through adventure.

Our quarterly excursions are opportunities for men and women to push through the boundaries of supposed mental and physical limits into a new awareness of what we can be when we support one another.

It is where we discover what we are (dust) and what we become together (tribe).

Winter 2019: D&T Grind

On January 24th, 2019, nine men and nine women will head into
the mountains of Santa Cruz for three days and thirty miles of cold and grit. This is their story.

This is where it starts to get weird.

Unsettling, yes?

It gets worse.

I've broken the whole lot of us into working partners. Each man will take a brother, each woman a sister.

I made the executive decision to keep Sheikh Suhail and Ustadha Lobna partnered as a couple because the numbers just didn't work out. I really don't think they'll mind.

Below, you'll find your new trail mate. Treat them kindly and with respect. Swear an oath of loyalty that involves blood or saliva or the ingestion of something ghastly. So you know it's real!

Believe it or not, there is some thought that went into these pairings. For example, Brother Youssef never checks his email. And we really don't know anything about Brother Farukhi. They are perfect for each other.

There are other factors. Experience. The possibility of mentorship. Height and general attractiveness. I have my criteria.

Trail Brothers

Farukhi and Youssef
Fazeel and Omar
Me and Muaz
Christian and Waqar

Trail Sisters

Sama and Randa
Kawtar and Wanda
Amira and Jumana
Syma and Aisha

You'll each get an email with the other's contact information. Start the conversations early. There is certainly much work to be done.

I'm also prepping for a training hike this coming weekend, God willing. Keep an eye on your inbox for details.

Now mingle!
