Shamanic Vision Quest
October 9-15, 2016
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DESERT
THE VISION QUEST IS RESERVED FOR GRADUATE’S OF, WALKING THE SHAMAN’S PATH PROGRAM, BUT WE DO MAKE EXCEPTIONS, PLEASE APPLY.
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.
We will be taking this rite of passage in the desert of Southern California. Patricia and her teachers Bob Calhoun and Lisa Goodenough will personally guide participants on this quest which includes 2 days of group teachings, sharing, & ceremony, with 4 days & 3 nights of personal Vision Questing.
The Southern California Desert has been the site of Patricia’s several personal Vision Quest’s and she welcomes sharing this magical place where the veil between the worlds is naturally lifted for journeyers to enter the Shamanic realm.
