VISION QUEST in Death Valley, CA
Facilitator: Carol Parker, Ph.D., LPCC
Dates: March 19–27, 2014
The ceremony of Vision Quest has long been practiced in indigenous cultures to assist with major life transitions. The wild and beautiful landscape of Death Valley is a particularly powerful place for this intense ceremony of transformation and healing. Participants will spend four days alone on the land without food and with a minimum of material comforts, guided by experienced facilitators.
Preparation includes teachings about the Medicine Wheel as a map for healing, as well as safety, logistics and intention-setting. Participants can expect to return home with new gifts to share with their communities and a strong, reliable connection with Mother Earth as a source of strength.
