An ancient rite of passage...

The Vision Quest is an ancient rite of passage used for thousands of years by indigenous cultures and mystical societies for spiritual growth and expansion. The theme of solo time in the healing power of nature can be found in spiritual traditions around the world, and it can be used by individuals belonging to no spiritual tradition in particular, but who are seeking to transcend the noise and distraction of daily life in order to find the truth of self and the experience of oneness in the silence.

The opportunity to connect with the Creator, the universal consciousness, the interconnectedness of all things in this way belongs to everyone. It is a birthright that is waiting for you to embrace. When we reconnect with nature in silence, we heal ourselves. And this is how the world is healed, one person at a time.


The tradition passed to us consists of 4 days and 4 nights immersed in the beauty and healing energy of nature, alone in a Quest circle, no distractions, fasting from all things familiar. You come face to face with yourself, and get to know more deeply who you are (and who you are not). With all distractions and the noise of daily life removed, and the voices of those around you silenced, you are more able to hear the whisperings of your soul reminding you why you came here in this life. 4 days and 4 nights -- just you alone with the Creator.

Find a greater sense of joy that comes from creating a life that has meaning when you realize your unique gifts and begin to live them and share them in the world at large. Begin to find the gifts and power in what you have perceived as your weaknesses/obstacles/shadow. Why is the Vision Quest still used to this day? Because it works.

We are passing along the Vision Quest teachings of Lipan Apache elder and shaman Stalking Wolf, though this is not an Apache Quest. The program is 8 days, with the 4-day Quest in the middle of the program. Prior to your Quest, we will help you prepare for this life-changing experience and we will provide the structure and support you will need. We will also provide security and protection from outside interruptions. After the Quest, we will give you the tools to help you process and understand all the gifts and insights you have received, so that your spiritual growth can be integrated into your daily life.

The Vision Quest is a challenging and powerful opportunity for growth, regardless of your background, station in life, or belief system. It is free of any dogma or religious affiliation. The only requirement is a commitment to yourself, your spiritual growth, and a willingness to be transformed. Prior outdoor experience is not required, and past participants in this rite of passage have ranged in age from 16 to 82. Please call to discuss any questions or concerns about dietary or medical needs.

You will need camping equipment for the base camp during the days you are not questing. A full "to bring" list will be included in your acceptance letter. We provide all bottled water for your Quest, and all meals during the 4 days that you are not Questing.
