Wild Soul Quests

Wild Soul Quest / Wilderness Rites of Passage  [Vision Quest]

-sacred wilderness ceremony for deep communion and transformation

In transition?

Needing clarity, direction or wanting to mark something significant in your life?

Is there something you are ready to let go of in yourself, your life or a way of being?

Do you have a desire to deepen and broaden your gifts for your people?

The decision to go out on a Vision Fast [Wild Soul Quest] is not arrived at by reason, no matter how compelled one is to attach reasons to it, it is an instinctual impulse that emerges, sometimes volcanically, from ones very essence. In truth it is not a decision at all but rather a willingness to say yes to the whisperings of your heart and turning yourself over fully to all that life is asking and offering you. ~ Joseph Lazenka

A WSQ is an intentional time set aside to renew your relationship with yourself.

It is a time to re-discover the true nature of self in relationship to Spirit* and other than humans.

It is an experience deepened by your guides and the other beings sitting in circle preparing ourselves and one another for going out onto the land alone for 3 days and 3 nights.

It can be exhilarating, scary, intense, light-hearted and transformative.  It will be what you need it to be.


 A Wild Soul Quest is a powerful healing wilderness ceremony using Nature to guide you to your deepest core of what is true and needed at this time in your life.


Engage the wildness that lives in you.

Across time and in countless ways, people of many cultures have gone into the wilderness to mark life transitions and seek guidance. In finding time alone with exposure to the elements in an unfamiliar place, a radical shift in self and world occurs. The essence of the ceremony is leaving the ordinary world, crossing a threshold, and returning with a gift and a task. It is an initiation, a rite of passage, a new opening and grounding into your next phase of life.  It is a wilderness rites of passage.

Those who want to follow the Way of Beauty must break away from cultural dictatorship and move out into no-man’s land where everything is new and unknown. They must learn to live outside of stereotypes and worn-out attitudes, and free themselves from any bonds – roles, ties, ideologies, interests, or habits – that might hold them back. They must learn all over again, without fear or hesitation, to be themselves. ~ Piero Ferrucci
