The Vision Quest
Where & when:
The Vision Quest
Finding soul-centric direction and purpose for our lives is an essential part of human health, development, and sanity, and can be an antidote for many of the existential challenges and pathologies that confront us in these times of evolutionary stress, breakdown, and breakthrough.
Whereas a traditional Vision Quest consists of finding a sacred place in the wilderness to pray and fast for 3-4 days, John has found we can often achieve the same results using our current conditions and technology to access the altered states where we can connect with our intuitive voice and wisdom Self and find the guidance we seek.
In this workshop, we examine the psychological, mythological, historical, and technological aspects of making this quest for vision a current and attainable reality. We will talk about what this means for us both individually and collectively, and participate in a group brainwave entrainment-enhanced Vision Quest meditation. Then we will share and compare the results.
