For thousands of years, people have used the vision quest as an active, moving meditation through which the soul gives guidance using the mirror of the external, physical world.

Did you know that throughout history people have gone into nature seeking profound spiritual revelations, dramatic physical healings and liberating emotional breakthroughs? Why? Because the dynamics of nature naturally break you out of habitual mental ruts to generate fresh, imaginative approaches and make new, inspired life choices.

In the quiet, empty, ageless spaces of remote canyons many people can get clearer answers to their spiritual or practical questions than through traditional, sitting meditation. For thousands of years, people have used the vision quest as an active, moving meditation through which the soul gives guidance using the mirror of the external, physical world.

The quest can act as a rite of passage marking an important transition or time in a person’s life. It also act as a rite of renewal, of soul healing or rebirth, or of strengthening understanding and connection to Self and to the Earth. In addition, the quest can be a rite of dedication or celebration of life purpose and passion.

There are as many different types of vision quests—from rigorous to gentle, in settings from mountain peaks to deep canyons--as there are visions. They all explore the alchemical, transformative power of nature.

Cool, shaded paths along lush, rushing streams are very relaxing and conducive to receiving the helpful messages from our souls delivered by birds, animals and stones. High on towering cliffs eagles speak, the wind caresses--and we taste new realizations. We drink from the well of the deep blue of the sky. Plants advise. Rocks give strength. We listen. We heal. We transform.

People experience quests as an ever-changing river, bubbling past obstacles, washing away what is no longer needed, carving out new niches, flowing into expanded territory and providing life-enhancing energy. Returning from the quest is a time of great exuberance and joy, celebrating the healing and wholeness that each person has found.

People re-enter their lives, bringing their unique, re-discovered gifts and opened hearts back to family, friends, community and work. Questers then create breakthroughs in their lives in the areas of abundance, health, jobs and discovering life purpose.
