The Delicate Lodge Vision Quest, Offered Spring and Fall, 2020

The Delicate Lodge Vision Quest
Potter’s Farm, Washburn, Wisconsin

What has your life uniquely prepared you to know, to be and to do?
In this extraordinary time of change, this is a question we might all ask.
What is my Spirit calling me to express?

The Delicate Lodge is a metaphor for our consciousness. How do we tend this Delicate Lodge we have been given? Life has prepared you to be uniquely YOU. The Vision Quest is a traditional and transformational experience in and with Nature, allowing the opportunity for deep healing, for powerful releasing, listening and remembering; for perceiving through the veil of Life’s mystery to clearly vision and claim one’s sacred purpose. Many cultures close to the Mother Earth around the world have their own unique version of the vision quest. This particular one takes the form of the Journey Shield Ceremony and comes to us through the Delicate Lodge tradition. We cannot BE what we cannot SEE!

It is a precious and healing gift to honor one’s life journey with this ceremony. There are some who dedicate themselves to this experience every 7 years for renewal and expansion of life purpose. Some are called when one chapter of life has ended, and the next steps are not clear. The call may come as a question: “Who am I now, what am I here to do and to be?” It consists of five days in personal ceremony with the Mother Earth and all of Nature. Each Seeker is supported through daily guidance with great respect and care. The direct connection between the Seeker’s yearning and Nature brings forth the mystery of transformation.

The ceremony is tailored to each participant’s needs, beginning with a conversation about intentions, and a preparation process to be disclosed once you claim your space. It is a healing and transformational experience. No two are ever quite the same.

Requirements: Emotional stability and maturity to withstand being mostly alone in one campsite while following gentle guidance through this period of time. Also needed: Openness, curiosity, trust, and courage to be in a powerful inquiry with yourself and Life.

The Vision Quest is the perfect deep Medicine Ceremony for our pandemic times. Each person will be safe, socially distanced, yet in intimate connection with Nature. It is more important than ever to release old assumptions about our purpose and how to use our gifts. This deep pause that we have been given, amplified by the solitude and deep communion with Nature in a Vision Quest, supports us to release the former “normalcy” of our lives and opens space for the extraordinary to be revealed.

Seekers will be guided daily by Paula DancingEagle Coyne, 22 years on this path; a Psychologist, Meditation and Yoga Teacher, and sanctioned in this Delicate Lodge tradition as a Teacher and Vision Quest Guide having been trained by WhiteEagleWoman, Rainbow Hawk and WindEagle.
