Connection with self, nature, and others are three of our deepest longings. Yet, the challenges and busyness of everyday life can leave us feeling rushed and disconnected.
Stepping away from distractions and long-held patterns allows us to explore the deep connections that help nurture, heal and inspire us. Witnessing nature awakens body, mind and spirit, and offers a profound experience of healing. This healing becomes a transformational experience--a return to our natural rhythm and our authentic self.
Every Vision Quest is an act of courage and recommitment to a life-affirming path. This weekend retreat offers a unique opportunity to spend 2 nights on the land, experiencing a centuries-old ritual of self discovery and renewal.
"Participating in a Vision Quest re-connects us to our essence, to our rhythm and to nature itself. Many cultures include this practice for health, the balancing of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual quadrants, and renewal of connection to self, other, and collective." -- Nancy Feehan
