From Tom Brown;
Hi my Brothers & Sisters,
This year 2015, the year Grandfather called “The Year of the Winter Kill,” is the turning or tipping point for the World. Malcolm, of Earth-Heart, and I are joining forces to help direct, prepare, and protect one of the most important Visionary gatherings the world has ever seen. I am calling upon all Tracker Family Members to join us in the 100-Person Prophecy Vision Quest.
It is not going to be your typical Quest, for this Prophecy Quest will focus on the possible and probable futures, where each person seeks the Prophetic Vision of the future and their place within it. This very rare and unique approach to the Vision Quest was one of the most cherished, secretive, and sacred Quests that Grandfather ever taught and now for the first time in decades I am going to pass it on to you. This will be a three-day quest, and I will meet with you for half a day before it starts, to guide you into this unique Quest. After the Quest, I will meet with you again for half a day to debrief it and help you understand the visions you received. Join us, for together we can make a huge difference.
I think that it was Mark Twain that once wrote; “The two most important days in your life is the day you were born and the day you find out why.” The problem is that most people never find out why and live lives of toil, struggle, suffering and worry, never really knowing who they are or where they are going in life. There is rarely a goal, and rarer still, a Vision for people–outside of having a job and family, for they never take the time to enter this very special world of the Vision Quest. This “rights of passage” in all of its forms is found worldwide and in many cultures and in many religions yet is rarely undertaken in today’s world.
I firmly believe that if everyone graduating high school was required to enter the Vision Quest there would be far less unhappiness in the world, less struggle, fewer wars, and a safer and more beautiful Earth and world in which we live. I also believe that no matter how old you or what you do in life, if you enter the world of the Vision Quest and Visionary you will be fulfilled and happy for your remaining years as you suddenly find out why you were born.
All questions and registration for the 100 VISIONS should be made through Malcolm at email@example.com. The Quest will run from July 26 through Aug 1st, 2015.
And From Malcolm;
Perhaps you have already seen Tom’s letter announcing the first ever, 100-person Prophecy Quest this summer from July 26 through Aug 1, 2015. When Tom and I were talking over how to best help both you and global consciousness shift into a better direction in this pivotal year, we decided to do something absolutely unique in the world today. Tom suggested we do another 100-person Quest, but that this time he would focus it on prophecy by bringing out Grandfather’s teachings on the “Prophecy Quest”.
The Prophecy Quest is a three-day Quest that will focus our efforts towards the probable and possible futures and our possible place in it. Of course, there is no defined future as every choice and action we take can modify what is to emerge. Tom has already taught that the probable future is what will happen if we do nothing to change it because the momentum towards that probable future is simply too great to be changed simply by wishing it so.
Certainly, this “year of the winter kill” is a crucial time for the world. Change is coming; it’s already here actually. And it is important, in this time of rapid transition, to see our place in that change; to see how our personal skills will serve us best in the coming changes; to see how our personal and grand visions contribute to a different, possible future; and to see directly how our action can empower the possible future we all hold in our hearts. This is a powerful gift from Tom and Grandfather.
It doesn’t take deep insight to realize we already live in the ‘belly of the beast’, as Tom calls it, and for a long time now. Even a cursory awareness of global events reveals that the ‘beast’ is waking, stirring the hearts of humanity with rage, hate, fear, grief and greed. In some parts of the world, violence is already wide spread, while in the rest, it simmers just below the surface. It is breaking out, the only question is where you will be, what will you carry in your heart, how you will serve your vision, and how will you keep yourself and your family safe, as you strive to counter the probable future we face with the possible future of eventual healing for all.
Yes, you read right. When Tom and I first talked about this quest, he said that it would give each quester not only the vision of their own unfolding but also that of their family, community, and, possibly, the global direction, if your focus is deep enough. If we care about anything more than our own safety, it is the safety and well-being of our family, so even though Tom didn’t write the piece about family in his letter, I wanted to share that part of his description of this Prophecy Quest with you.
This Prophecy Quest sits on the foundation of the Vision Quest, but takes a different attitude and intent, a different focus into the Quest. Of course, you will still receive more traditional personal and grand vision during the Quest as you have in the past, but we also seek to peel back the time-bound cloak to perceive more broadly the direction our vision and action will bring to us and to the whole, and perhaps more importantly, how the whole can be influenced towards awakening spirits to a vision and purpose beyond themselves.
What a potent inspiration and gift to hold when our powerful visions enables us to see just exactly how our diverse visions fit together: how those running a wildlife rehab center, the healers, teachers, and the many, many others who are effectively walking their spiritual path while working more traditional jobs, are all united in the flame of spiritual love and life!
Then instead of each of us creating our own little detour along the corridor of time, our united focus would combine to ignite a tempest of change in the possible future to challenge the blind rush towards the catastrophic probable future we face. Unfortunately, so many people seem either to desire this outcome or are unwilling to do the work to see how destructive their blindness is and help to change the direction.
Let us continue to strengthen our intent—working together, as we have for so many years. Use this opportunity to be a part of this powerful wave—to directly and positively turn the tides of this destruction.
So, I would like to add my invitation to Tom’s and stir your desire to join us for this historic Quest. Tom will spend half a day with us preparing us with the tools we need for this unique Quest experience, and spend another half a day at the end to help us understand the visions we experience and where to go from there.

This donation is not payment for the Prophecy Quest teachings, but covers the many expenses incurred in running this program, such as the meals for the 4 days you are not Questing, land rental, supplies, travel expenses, insurance, etc., that enables us to continue to offer this program to those who are called to it. Further, it is a measure of your commitment to what you are undertaking and a measure of respect for your guides and protectors in the experience.
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 15 to 82. Please call or write 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 meals during the 4 days you are not Questing, and we provide all bottled water used during the Quest.
