What will I get out of a VQ?
The Vision Quest is a ceremony specifically designed to facilitate change, to help people move from one stage of their lives through to the next. You will emerge from the Vision Quest with a profound connection to the Earth, and to all of nature. You will in all likelihood know yourself more completely, have dealt with unresolved issues from your past, made plans for your future, discovered who you really are and what your purpose is in life. You will take these discoveries with you to your people – your family, friends and colleagues.
Spending time alone, fasting in the wilderness gives a deep inner strength and sense of freedom to be yourself, but in the end –as with everything – you will get out what you put in. Nature reflects yourself back to you. As is often said “the story of the quest is the story of your life”
“One does not go to the sacred mountain for oneself, but for the good of one’s people.”
