“The ultimate aim of the quest must be neither release nor ecstasy for oneself, but the wisdom and power to serve others.” Joseph Campbell

I consider the Vision Quest to be the most powerful spiritual practice available to humanity, and that is doubly so when you focus the Quest experience on a specific theme. In the past we have highlighted various themes–100-person, prophecy, guardians, etc. and the results have opened incredible doors in the questers. This year we continue this Questing journey to fine-tune our awareness to the inner reaches of our consciousness.
In collaboration with Tom Brown, this year, we decided to highlight a “Temples Vision Quest” following the theme of the “Temples” classes that Tom offers in his school. What makes this Quest unique is that here we will intentionally target our inner worlds, cultivating the encounter with the Self by going deeply within. Of course, the traditional VQ offers this inner journey as well, but there it is more accidental, depending on the process of the Quest to awaken those insights as experiences swing from inner to outer expansion.
While this Quest will use several of the practices that Tom teaches in his Temples class, you will not need to have taken that class to attend this Quest. l will give sufficient instruction in the tools for you to confidently use them during the Quest. I will show you how to go deep inside to discover what is hidden there, how to go even deeper to discover the depth of your heart, how to dive further still into the state of Oneness, and finally, how to take that final step into the ultimate transparency of Being.
For those who have taken the Temples class, of course, you will have a greater array of tools to bring to the Quest. However, even beginners will be sufficiently grounded in the practices that they will be able to get ultimate clarity from the inward journey of this Quest. And, of course, as with every Quest, you will have the full power of nature assisting your every step.
So, if you want to focus your questing efforts inwardly this year, join us.

This donation is not payment for the Vision 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.
