Solstice To Equinox
From the shadows into the Light
This is a three month guided journey that prepares you for a three day Vision Quest on the Spring Equinox.
This is an initiatory journey of stepping into your unique gifts and honoring your authenticity of Spirit. This authentic expression is what is known as your medicine. It is said we each come into this world with a song and that we are that song. The journey is about learning it and sharing it with the world.
Over the next three months you’ll be guided through a series of shamanic journeys amongst the forest, experience the profound growth from “circle work” or way of council as we gather around the fire, and learn the techniques and tools to carry your “medicine” in a sacred way so you yourself and others honor it.
We meet twice a month as a group within a Wilderness area. These six hour wilderness excursions guide you through ancient forest where you experience tailored shamanic journeys to awaken the hidden aspects of yourself ready to surface.
You'll immerse your senses in the sensations, sounds, smells, and presence of an ancient forest. Allowing the animals paths to guide us, we'll fox walk amongst huge ferns, crawl upon and often under fallen old growth trees, and journey alongside glacial rivers.
Through these journeys you begin to listen to what's going on within on a deeper level and you come into contact with both your wounds and your strengths. You gain the tools and techniques to navigate the terrain of your Shadow Self. You learn how to honor your shadows and retrieve the medicine they offer. Through these experiences you discover how to harness your strengths and ground in them so they take root.
These three months are designed to provide you the practical skills and shamanic techniques to experience a powerful three day vision quest where you spend three days alone in the wilderness immersed in ritual, fire tending and personal discovery.
You’ll learn the primitive skills such as making friction fire and shelter. You’ll experience an overnight fire vigil where you tend a fire in a sacred manner with meditation techniques and rituals. Everything leads to providing you the experiences to shed limitations, deepen your connection, and ground in a new awareness of SELF and the path you're traveling. Gain clarity with where you are on your path and tools to navigate your unique terrain.
You’ll learn the practical and shamanic tools to experience a powerful vision quest.
What's a vision quest?
A vision quest is a time honored initiatory process found in multiple cultures worldwide. It is used when one is ready to let go of an old paradigm of Self and firmly root in a more expanded one. Through the experiences one has during their vision quest, one journeys through the hidden aspects of oneself, transcends fears, wounds and limitations, and discovers a greater capacity of Self. After the quest, one experiences a profound shift in one's personal identity where you're grounded in your strengths and authenticity.
What's a Vision Quest Entail?
It begins with months of preparing the mind and heart. When the initiate is ready, they are guided into the forest or desert to a specific spot. A circle is formed and they stay within this circle for three days. During those days one fasts, meditates, does ritual and give offerings to a fire they brought to life through primitive methods and tends in a sacred manner. On the end of the third day the guide appears with a special stew which is both delicious, nutritious and easily digestible. The initiate is guided out of the wilderness joining the other initiates where they experience an initiatory ceremony to mark their transition.
