This is an introductory program that has depth and power, yet only requires a commitment of one day. It's called a Vision Walk, and it's a mini-vision quest, a day's journey on Mother Earth, structured in the same way as all significant rites of passage: preparation (Severance), time on the land (Threshold), and return (Incorporation).
This program serves as an excellent introduction to our work, and can be a gift to oneself--time out of your regular life to reflect, go within, and just be in nature.
This program contains elements distilled from the 9-day Vision Quest journey: safety orientation, a day fast, clarification of intent, crossing a threshold, spending sacred time on the land, return to a feast, and story telling with mirroring by staff.
In Sonoma County, we offer this program locally in the beautiful wild country above the Sonoma Valley plain, and for 2011 it will also be offered in locations in the Midwest and Seattle, WA, with plans for other locations. We will also travel to bring it to your community or group event. See our schedule for dates and location for the coming year. Also check out our Home Study Vision Walk, which you can undertake on your own with the support and assistance of Rites of Passage staff.
