“It's not possible to save the world by trying to save it. You need to find what is genuinely yours to offer the world before you can make it a better place. Discovering your unique gift to bring to your community is your greatest opportunity and challenge. The offering of that gift — your true self — is the most you can do to love and serve the world. And it is all the world needs.”
― Thomas Berry, Soulcraft: Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche
The vision quest ceremony has 3 archetypal phases that will be marked, and moved through throughout our time together.
The 3 phases are:
This begins the moment you fully commit to this ceremony. You will move through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual preparations and be supported on ways to arrive as an open cup and start the process of severing from your day-to-day life.
This is your solo time on the land. 3 days & 3 nights. No food. No technology. Step alone across into the threshold of the natural world. Sinking into liminal time and space. Here you will create your own ceremony, reflecting your unique background, intentions, value, and the ways you honour your life.
The return from your solo in the group circle, followed by your return home to your family and community. Where story sharing initiates deep listening and mirroring to fully integrate the experience. Literally, "taking into the body". This is a year long process, in which you will be supported on ways to bring back the learnings and gifts of your ceremony home. An opportunity to show up in your life in new ways.
ARE YOU READY?
If you’ve read this far, this may be the clarity that the call of the ancient mysteries are already demanding your attention.

“Initiation causes a funeral and a birth; a mourning appropriate to death and a joyous celebration for the restoration of a full life...”
- Michael Meade
A SOLO FAST AND COMMUNITY CIRCLE
We all hold an instinctive need for initiation and rights of passage. If ignored and buried into the unconscious, it will inevitably show up later in life through self-destructive behaviours, extreme attachments, identity confusion, and many other ways. The renewal of meaningful rights of passages are essential for our well-being, knowing our role in our community, and developing reverence for the natural world.
- Are you seeking initiation and a right of passage ceremony?
- Are you looking to mark, honour, and celebrate a life transition?
- Are you wanting solitude in the natural world, leaving distractions and routines behind?
- Are you ready to step into your true nature and sense of belonging on the land and in your community?
Perhaps the call is waiting for you to respond.
The results can be profound. Meaning and purpose can return, and life can become richer, clearer, and more full.
