Return Again: Wild Soul Vision Quest
Guided by Anne Hayden and Sheila Belanger
June 2–10, 2018
Preparation Camping Retreat: April 27–29, 2018
The Wild Soul Vision Quest is for those who have previously enacted a vision quest with Northwest Soulquest or Animas Valley Institute, or have engaged with a significant number of soul-oriented processes, programs and/or inner work. In these tumultuous times, the world needs mature individuals willing to embody their authentic soul essence. To re-enact a vision quest in wild lands deepens your relationship with your soul and enlivens the unique gifts that only you can bring to the world.
This journey is a contemporary enactment of the cross-cultural vision quest and includes three days and nights of solitude and fasting.
We quest in canyon lands of Eastern Washington where ponderosa pine, owl and sagebrush offer wild companionship. The required weekend Preparation Camping Retreat weaves together the community of questers and offers support for your individual preparation (physically, emotionally and spiritually) in the months before the journey.
Schedule: A commitment to participation in the preparation weekend and vision quest is necessary. The weekend preparation for the Vision Quest begins on Friday at 6 pm and ends on Sunday at 4 pm. The Vision Quest begins on Saturday morning and ends 9 days later on Sunday evening. The Preparation Camping Retreat is on South Whidbey Island.
Cost: Sliding scale fee: $1295 – $1595 (includes camping fees, all meals, and tuition). (Travel expenses and any trailhead parking fees are not included.) Payment plans and some partial scholarships are available. Contact us for details.
