Vision Quest

A Vision Quest is a powerful pan-cultural rite-of-passage that invites participants to reconnect with who they are in nature through a period of solo fasting, in a safe and facilitated environment. The process involves interaction with participants, facilitators, one's own personal history and value systems, as well as time for solitude and reflection. The act of Vision Questing stems from land-based peoples traditions and their rites of passage celebrations. It is an ancient way of experiencing and exploring self on the earth; of clarifying, renewing, determining and seeing.

Transformational

Physical, spiritual, mental and emotional gateway to personal, community and societal transformation through the practice of fasting safely alone in nature within a community of fellow seekers.

Rite Of Passage

A ceremony / ritual that marks the passage between the old and new, the letting go and letting come, a process of stepping through the threshold into the liminal and back. An initiation that marks a transition as sacred.

Nature-Based

A ceremony / ritual that marks the passage between the old and new, the letting go and letting come, a process of stepping through the threshold into the liminal and back. An initiation that marks a transition as sacred.

Vision Quest

If you are hearing the call to do a Vision Quest during this time, you may be tapping into this collective transformation process. It is indeed a very powerful time to participate in a rite of passage.
