Wild Soul Quests

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

-sacred wilderness ceremony for deep communion and transformation

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.


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 Wild Soul Quest 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 other participants sitting in circle preparing to go 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.

Engage the wildness that lives in you.

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
