-a wild soul quest for women of all ages
July 22 – 31, 2021 Western Colorado
Strong and soft, powerful and supple as trees, we are women rooted in the Earth. We find our own true nature in Nature – the nature of Gaia, our Earth mother. How we love ourselves is reflective of how we love her. When we allow ourselves to be held in her bosom we find our hearts are open and we are able to both receive and give freely.
It is time for women to take and maintain a stand for who we are and what we are capable of being, doing and having on this Earth at this time. Change is here and as we are rooted in ourselves we become stronger and more flexible, as trees, as the Divine Feminine, as powerful women taking our place in the way of things.
It is a difficult time we live in. The purpose of this ceremony is to allow Nature to teach us, open us, reflect us, and include us. The power inherent in a Quest is a personal power that will offer us a greater degree of freedom, as well as profound grounding in our bodies with the land.
We intend to nurture self-compassion and kindness, presence and gratitude as daily practice. We will hold the space for you to renew, replenish and rejoice in yourself as a woman embodying wisdom needed on the planet.
Join us for a 9 day women’s wilderness ceremony on the land with 8-10 other women of all ages, including a 3 day solo, for which you will be fully prepared. As much as possible we will help you design the experience that will be of most benefit to you in your life at this time.
During this 9-day vision quest for women we will live in beauty and root ourselves in safety, allowing our hearts to open. The land offers us an experience of deep self care, wisdom and compassion. We will have the opportunity to explore, discover, and renew our commitment to our own lives and life on Earth. The land and the ceremony heals, strengthens and offers support. The places where we may feel disconnected, unclear or bound can and do heal. We will have the opportunity to return as women living in ease, with gentle humor and a sense of spaciousness.
My greatest learning has always come directly from Nature itself. Committing to this vision quest will begin a journey of self-discovery and . . . more from participants.
We will hold base camp on the Uncompragre Plateau above the meandering water and towering red rock cliffs of Big Dominguez Canyon. Nestled among ponderosa pine next to the Dominguez Canyon Wilderness and in the Uncompahgre National Forest our camp will be at approximately 8000’. More. . .
This location is a 5 hour drive from Denver, one hour drive from Grand Junction airport.
Carolyn Ringo is a Deep Self Care coach and an experienced guide in your process of transition and more . . .
Karen Good was trained as a guide by the founders of The School of Lost Borders in 1996. Karen loves to more . . .

The full cost of this vision quest for women is $535 which covers expenses only. (This is hard costs for supplies and our preparation time.) We ask that you consider separately a gift to the guides, as your fee does not cover our time spent with you on the land. We are offering this time on the land at a reduced fee to allow women who might not otherwise be able to join us. (Most Vision Fasts charge $850 – $1600.)
If you feel you feel called to this at this time and cannot pay the full fee, please contact us to inquire about scholarships.
Due to the uncertainty of where we will all be due to COVID restrictions, we are reducing the deposit to $100 to hold your spot. The deposit is included in the prices below. (If we find it is not possible to have our Quest this year, you will be fully refunded.)

Money will not be held for longer than one year.
If we have to cancel due to less than 5 participants or an unforeseen circumstance, your money will be fully refunded.
Your commitment of a deposit is all you need make for the Universe to begin preparing you for this powerful experience. (We will post when it is full and add you to a waiting list.)
