Macrotransiencies

[EN] Macrotransiencies are long-form meanders or rites of passage for those who are undergoing some kind of transition in their lives. FoAM supports these transients by carving out a place and time for them to consciously inhabit the liminality of their transition, guided by FoAM’s coaches and mentors and fully immersed in our support network for up to a year.
