CIRCLES Vision Quest



Metis ElderSince the beginning of this cycle of time, humanity has returned to nature to connect with spirit and to seek answers to problems of the physical realms, especially in these days when the messages of prophecy reveal themselves to the seeker. In its own way, the vision quest is an Initiation not unlike the days of the ancient mystery school teachings where one learns about themselves and the mysteries of the universe are often revealed to them. Who am I? Why am I here? It is a time of internal transformation and renewal.

A Vision Quest usually lasts two to four days, with Questers planted in privacy within their own sacred circles, during which time the seeker delves deeply into their soul. This is known as "going up The Hill".  In our Vision Quests, the Questers fast but have water and spiritual support from the community.  The physical surroundings and deep communion with Nature allow the spirit to move into a dimensional reality of total connectedness.

In ancient times, the entire clan prepared for the Vision Quest, bringing food for those watching out for the Questers, wood, prayers and other support. The clan watched for the return of the Questers to hear the visions they had received for the well-being of the entire clan.
