Vision Quest

We are the ones from yesterday, we are the ones from today and we will be the ones from tomorrow...
The vision quest ceremony is an opportunity to be alone with ourselves, to reconnect with Mother Earth and the Great Spirit.

Since the ancient times principally in northern American traditions, this quest was used to seek a purpose in life, to find out who we are and where we go, to reconnect with our spirit and the creator... to understand we are one with the universe...
In this ceremony you will have the chance to go up on a mountain and be alone for 4 days without food and water.
In exchange you will be able to learn to feed yourself with the flight of the birds, with the singing of the wind, the light of a new dawn and the colors of the sunset...

You will stay inside a circle, an altar of your prayers made of tobacco ties.
Each tobacco tie is a prayer to the Great Spirit, through which you will introduce yourself to the spiritual world. You will introduce your parents, your grand parents and your ancestors.... they will be with you during the 4 days.

You must bring with you a blanket with an 8 pointed star attached in the center. This will be the connection between our prayers in the sweat lodge and your quest on the mountain...

Going up to the mountain and making your quest is your own choice, not someone else’s choice, so respect yourself, respect your soul and your spirit, respect your path and your breathing, respect all that has not been created by mankind...

Go to the vision quest without expectations but with hope... hope that something inside of you will change in a good way...Our prayers and our fast offering will be certainly heard by the Great Spirit. Join the vision quest with no ideas , better leave them at home. Go without anything that may distract you, so that you will have the chance to listen at the birds singing to the earth.

When you are up on the mountain forget about who you are in the city, forget about who you are in the world and be yourself. You don't have to proof anything to anyone... You will be alone with your heart, your spirit and your prayers in front of the creator... You will have a life-changing experience within a beautiful and ancient ceremony.

Prepare yourself in the sweat lodge, pray, sing, sweat out your fears... Say your name out loud, introduce yourself to the spirits... Burn out your ego in the holy fire... Be sincere... Great Spirit listens to all of us... and we can never lie to him....

Search for someone you trust to be your supporter. Your supporter will drink water for you, will eat for you, and will pray and sweat in the sweat doge every morning and every evening to giving you the strength to continue your quest. We will take care of you while you rediscover the respect for life and realize the fact that we all belong to this earth and we are all part of the universe and of the great mystery...

In the camp:

This is a familiar ceremony, so everyone is welcome! Children, adults and elders are welcome to join us in the camp. There will be activities, and games for the children, workshops and talks, and everyone is always welcome to share activities with the people in the camp!

There will also be a shopping area, where you can find art handcrafts from Mexico, North and South America!

Live the experience of cooking together as a community (common unity) and preparing the holy food for the whole camp to giving strength to the vision questers! This whole movement is based on trust, knowing that everything is in balance right here and right now.

The medicine, the ceremonies and the sweat lodges does not have any costs... However we ask for cooperation because performing this ceremony has certain costs, such as: rent of the place, toilets, food for the whole camp, wood for feeding the holy fire that will keep burning for the 4 days, flights for the people that come all the way from Mexico to share this medicine and prayers!
