Vision Quest is a ”rite of passage” in many Native American cultures. The ceremony of the Vision Quest is one of the most universal and ancient means to find spiritual guidance and purpose for one’s life. A Vision Quest offers clarity into the next phase of life.
The Vision Quest is typically four days and nights of fasting in nature within a personal isolated altar. People who go on a Vision Quest are called Pledges. When someone is going on a Vision Quest, we call it “being planted on the hill” or “going on the mountain.”
The next vision quest is in June. Please visit our calendar to see when the next Quest camp is scheduled.
Why Do We Go On a Quest?
Humanity today needs more connection to nature, less social isolation, and more human contact. Direct proximity to earth, water, fire and air through each day is a huge benefit for the body and our general health. During their Quest, the Pledges focus their heart, mind, body, and spirit on the guidance they are seeking.
To learn more about Vision Quest and how to participate, contact an elder or Sweet Medicine.
If you are interested in attending our 2018 Vision Quest supporting camp, June 20-25th, we welcome you!
By attending camp, you are not being put on a quest. Camp is designed to be a village that supports those who have chosen to go on the mountain.
You will be joining our ongoing community's annual event. At Vision Quest camp we teach our principles, learn songs and explore healthy ways to incorporate these ancient methods into our lives today. We follow the “red road” native principles handed down by Elders who gave permission for this camp to be run annually. Our camp is usually made up of Elders/ facilitators and supporters.
To attend the 2018 Vision Quest Camp, please register and pay by May 15th.You can pay in full or pay in three monthly installments.
