Since time immemorial, people have gone to the wilderness to seek guidance and renewal, to let their old lives and old selves die, to find the conditions where spirit may rekindled, reborn within them.” A Vision Quest is a personal spiritual journey undertaken by someone as a rite of passage, a means towards reaching a turning point in life in order to find oneself & seek a vision for one’s spiritual & life direction. Similar to an initiation in some Native American cultures.
